    In the good old UK,

    --Any free man is allowed to lead his sheep across London Bridge and may drive his sheep in Cheapside.
    --A man with the plague is not allowed to take a taxi.
    --Two men are not allowed to have sex with each other in a house if there is a third person present.
    --A gynecologist must examine the patient's genitals through a mirror.

    In Indonesia,
    --Masturbation is punishable by decapitation.

    In Lebanon,
    --One may receive the death penalty for having intercourse with a male animal.

    In the state of Iowa,
    --It is prohibited to have been kissing for longer than five minutes.

    In the state of Florida,
    --Single women are prohibited from parachuting on Sundays.

    In the state of Vermont,

    Re: Absurd Laws?

    "A law stating that in Liverpool, only a clerk in a tropical fish store is allowed to be publicly topless, was also ridiculous, said a poll of 3,931 people for UKTV Gold television out Tuesday."

    That's gotta be the dumbest thing I've ever heard! Although, now I wanna move to liverpool and open a tropical fish store, LOL!

    We've got a pretty stupid law here in Minnesota--I promise I'll look up more--actually, it's in Minneapolis rather (one of those 108 year old city laws that no cop would dare to enforce). It's illegal to spit on the sidewalk. I see people spitting all the time! Why it's still illegal is beyond me! I know that you couldn't about a century ago because everyone and thier mom chewed tobacco, but I mean, damn... What would happen if I was walkin' down the street and decided to spit some nastiness out of my mouth, or if I coughed up some crazy lung butter and a cop tries to arrest me? He'd have to chase me to be able to take me to jail over something that dumb. LOL.

    I hear that in, correct me if I'm wrong, North or South Dakota, it's illegal to sleep with shoes or socks on. LOL. That's pretty funny too.

    --Women are not allowed to wear pants. If they are caught wearing pants, soldiers are permitted to snatch them off the women and tear them to shreds.
    --Women over ten years old are not permitted to wear over-knee skirts

    "In the state of Indiana,
    --A man over the age of 18 may be arrested for statutory rape if the passenger in his car is not wearing her socks and shoes, and is under the age of 17."


    Now that's funny as hell! LOL. The girl can say, "My feet itch," and kick her shoes and socks off and it's over for that guy! That would be one hell of a way to send someone you don't like to jail for a long while. Ha ha!

    Re: Absurd Laws?

    Thought I'd throw some in from my state:

    IN ALASKA: It is illegal to let your pet flamingo inside of a barber shop in the city of Juneau.

    It's ilegal to push a moose from a moving airplane.

    It's illegal for moose to... "breed"... on city streets in Fairbanks.

    In Haines, Alaska they have a law that it's illegal to break the law. Lol.

    It's illegal to view moose from an airplane.

    Re: Absurd Laws?

    In good old Illinois (from CrazyLaws.com - Dumb Laws)

    • Champaign: One may not pee in his neighbor's mouth.
    • Joliet: Town fathers, reflecting the pet peeve of hearing their town's name mispronounced 'Jolly-ETTE' when all local folk know it's pronounced 'Joe-lee-ETTE', made pronouncing it Jolly-ette a misdemeanor, punishable by a $5 fine.
    • Chicago: Law forbids eating in a place that is on fire; It is illegal to give a dog whiskey; Kites may not be flown within the city limits; Spitting is forbidden.
    • According to state law, it is illegal to speak English. The officially recognized language is "American".
    • Fairfield: It is unlawful for "Negroes" to be within county boundaries from sundown to sunrise.

    I wonder if that last one is still actually on the books, seems like if people know it's there, there'd be some outcry to have it repealed (can't imagine that it's actually enforced, but I've never been to Fairfield to know firsthand).
