Strange Laws
Laws against feminine wiles? It's illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at one time?

Discuss laws that are outrageous, outdated, wasteful, ridiculous and just plain funny here!

life is for living

in the UK, even though the death sentence has been banned for every other crime, you could still be hung for commiting treason.

In Alabama it's illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle. I wonder why they had to put that one on the books?

Davina; Probably because some fool did it once. Altho, why a law, you would think some other law would cover that situation. I did see a magician (or maybe psychic) drive around with a blindfold on some tv show a while back.It wasn't in Alabama tho. I think it was in Las Vegas. he did drive good, a lot better than some people!

I believe it is illegal in Boston, Massachusetts for a woman to wear red lipstick, especially on Boston Commons.

And I think it is still a hanging offence, or at least punishable by death to commit treason in America. hmmm.... I'd watch out if I were Linda Trip.

Who decides what's 'unusual'?

Pregnant women are entitled to urinate in Policemen's helmets in Britain.

And there is apparently a day when it is legal for a Welshman to kill an Englishman, as long as he uses a longbow and is standing a certain distance away.

If only I had know that last time I was in London!! (The part about uriniating, not about killing Englishman!)

In America it's legal to kill an Englishman...if he's carrying a musket and wearing a red coat. ;)

Now, if you think about it, some of these laws do make sense... 'it's illegal to drive your sheep unchaparoned in Montana'. Think about it... Montana, where the men are men and the sheep are nervous!!! Good law, gooood law.

In Flordia having sexual relations with a porcupine is illegal... why do you even need that law?!?!
