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?!?!

Again from FL, you may not fart in a public place after 6 P.M. on Thursdays...WHAT?!

In Tennessee... you can't shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile... hollow logs may not be sold... more than 8 women may not live in the same house because that would constitute a brothel... it is illegal to use a lasso to catch a fish... "Crimes against nature" are prohibited... stealing a horse is punishible by hanging... driving is not to be done while asleep... and my all time favorite(drum roll please)...the age of consent is 16, but 12 if the girl is a virgin...WHAT?!?!

speaking of strange laws just read that you can not get death sentance in the state of Washington for killing a child.You can be sentanced to death for various other crimes but not for killing a child!

In the State of Florida and other eastern seaboard states it is illegal to have oral sex even if you are married.... How did/would they enforce this law? beyond crazy
