A funny book...















I recently borrowed a book from my friend, called The World's Stupidest Laws. As i started to read it, myself and 2 friends were reduced to giggling. And one of them was a boy:O and boys don't giggle:P It is a very funny book, but dodgy in places.
I thought i would give you some of the funniest ( in my opinion) laws that i could find.

Stupid laws from England

Beds must not be hung out of windows.

It is against the law to eat mince pies on 25 December.

It is not legal for a member of parliament to ebter the House of Commons wearing a full suit of armory.

All engishmen over 14 years old are ment to carry out about 2 hours of longbow practice a week under the supervision of the local clergy.

London city law - You are acknowlegded as a freeman if you can drive your geese down Cheapside.

Greece - if a man is caught kissing a women in public, the death penatly may be enforced.

Australia - By law, taxicabs must carry a bale of hay in the boot.

China - It is against the law to save a drowning person, as such an act would interfere with his or her fate.

North America

New Brunswick procincal law - Driving on roads is prohibited.

Los angeles - A man is entitled to beat his wife with a leather belt or strap, but the belt can't be wider than two inches, unless he has his wife's consent to beat her with a wider strap.

Illinois - galesburg - There is a $1000 fine imposed for beating rats with basketball bats.

Illinois - joliet - A women can get arrested for trying on more than 6 dresses in one store.

South Dakota - spearfish - If three or more Native American Indians are walking down the street together, they can be considred a war party and shot at.

The list goes on...

But my personal favorite...

England - Chester - A welsh person may be shot with a bow and arrow as long as the event occurs within the city walls and after midnight.

All the welsh people i know... be careful...:P

    I think I shall be more carefull who I kiss when in Greece from now on. Also I guess being tequnicly Welsh I had better watch out next time I go cycling in Chester.

    Nice book.. Can I come over to your house and read it some time, or is it going back from whence it was borrowed soon?

    good afternoon my dear - highly amusing and interlectual, I must say! I think that not driving on roads is funny, as is not being allowed to save a drowning person. Well, I should probably update mine now, but I can't put pictures on at the moment, so there doesn't seem much point!
    love and sunshine, me xxxxx

    ps - see you next-next Friday!!!
