    Default Strange Laws

    Follow us on Social Media







    There are a lot of strange laws still on the books. For example, did you know it's illegal to send a telegram or letter threatening a bird and every fifth song on a Canadian radio must be by a Canadian born citizen.

    Here are a couple more examples:

    You may not pay for a fifty-cent item with only pennies.
    Citizens may not publicly remove bandages.
    In BC it is illegal to kill a sasquatch.
    In Oshawa Ontario it's illegal to climb trees.
    In Ottawa Ontario you cannot eat ice-cream on Bank Street on a Sunday.
    In Winnipeg Manitoba against the law to put your garbage in someone else’s garbage can even with their permission.
    In Etobicoke Ontario you cannot take a bath in water deeper than 3.5 inches before you enter it.

    Do you have any laws that u think r funny/stupid/strange in the country u live???

    Heres some more strange laws from around the world:

    - In Lebanon, men are legally allowed tohave sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

    - In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but is forbidden from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

    - Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.

    - The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

    - There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time. Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry. (is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?)

    - In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands.

    - Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical fish stores.

    - In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

    - In Santa Cruz, Bolivia it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time. (...we have to presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law...?)

    - In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: pro-phylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only "in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises."

    - In 2002, the Greek government passed a flawed law that accidentally banned all electronic games.
