A new law in Japan can jail people when their waistline went above 33.5 inches for males and 35.4 inches for females. Although the intent was good – aiming for a fitter and healthier race, its passing into a law is still bizarre.
In accordance to that, I listed a few of world’s laws that are strangely appearing:
You don’t die in the House of Parliament in England. Sorry, it’s the law.
However, if you are a homosexual living in Singapore, you are not allowed to live.
No worries homosexuals in Italy, you may live. But you can’t wear a skirt.
If you find a whale on the British coast, good for you! But you only get to keep the body. The Royal Prerogative 1324 gives rights to the royal family – a dead whale’s head belongs to the King while the tail for the Queen!
Talking of animal-human interaction laws, bringing bears in any beach of Israel is forbidden.
Hold on! You can’t kiss there. French and English train stations forbid kissing.
Well, in Denmark you can kiss. But before you start your car, you have to check your lights, brakes, steering, and then honk your car.
Not flushing a toilet in Singapore costs $100, so always double check! On the contrary, it is illegal to flush your toilet after 10 PM in Switzerland.
Pretending to know witchcraft or any sort will imprison you in Ireland.
So you want to go to college. But there’s one rule – you have to be intelligent. Yup, no room for dumb college students in China.
You can’t leave your house without underwear. That’s how much they love underwear in Thailand.
Shit! I can’t shout offensive words in the Mexican public.
Electronic games are banned in Greece.
Oh Canada! It is mandated for ex-prisoners to be given a handgun, bullets, and horse. Apparently, you need these things just to get out of town.
In Denmark, you don’t wait to be an ex-prisoner, for it is legal to escape. It is however illegal to get caught. The penalty: you finish your term in prison.
So what will keep you in prison? An ashtray. Turned out it is a deadly weapon for French lawmakers.
Which law is the most ridiculous?
