    Hi, I’m from Singapore, and would just like to improve the accuracy of this. (Note, I’m not justifying the absurdity, just the accuracy).

    It’s okay to chew gum, it’s not legal to import chewing gum for sale.

    walking naked and flusing toilet are seperate offences.

    Littering does not give you a TV presence, though you have to serve “Corrective Work Order” (which is what the “bib” says, rather than “I’m a litterer”.

  2. Cameron

    I would have been good, if it wasn’t the exact same laws that are in every other list of “weird laws.” Also, I’m pretty sure the author just cut and pasted it from other lists, seeing as how some of the items were repeated, and the format changed a couple of times.

  3. Pat

    Well, I don’t know the accuracy of all of them, but living in Switzerland I can definitively say that “In Switzerland it is against the law for men to urinate standing up after 10pm which is the same time that it is illegal to flush the toilet” is wrong.

  4. cheech

    k dude i just wanna say that you have the same exact thing as every other den and those arent real.sooooo keep of the goood worrkkk


  5. Chris

    I would just like to say, give me some fucking sources. Where’s the sources? Evidence, dammit, or else you just have a stupid, ignorant, un-researched chainletter.

  6. jane

  7. Sandya Maulana

    Hey, there’s no such law in Indonesia! I am an Indonesian and I masturbate every time I need it. So fuck off and wipe that entry clean, dumb ass!

  8. Dan

    I have a friend from Canada. It is illegal to throw a moose out of an airplane or helicopter on Wednesdays.

    My dad is also a firefighter in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, and they are to rescue everyone, so it is not illegal to resue a woman in her nightdress

  9. christina

    this is bul shit i never heard of theese laws i travel around the world and been to most of theses places and never onces i have i got fined or imprisoned!!!! and wheres the god damn proof!!!

  10. Richard Cole

    It looks as though politicians have not changed over the centuries or by location. Give them a little power and they go crazy.

  11. alecks

    in georgia it is illegal to have oral sex

    i actually know of someone who was cought on tape and was punished

  12. Gregory

    In Montana a gathering of more than seven Native Americans is considered a war party and you can engage them in open warfare.

  13. Rita in Texas

    In the small town in Texas where I grew up it was illegal to spit on Main street. The nick name of that street was “Spit Street”

  14. John

    This soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo gay. All these laws. I would break all of them in a matter of seconds.

  15. Yang

    In Beijing you are not allowed to have lights on your bicycle (tricycle when it’s dark), you are not allowed to spit or litter i public places. You are not allowed to be more than three people together when having a meeting or dinner. You are not allowed to wear a banner or a badge with a message, nor to have a flag that is from an other country than your own. You have to carry with you your passport when you are out in the city. You are allowed to demonstrate and state your opinion in three places/parks in the city, if you have the permission from the Public Security. Mongolian and black people are not to served in bars.

  16. Khrystyna

    I have to admit the article was an interesting read, however i doubt the accuracy as well as strict reinforcement of many of these laws. There are many laws written in bills that we do not even know about but they do come in handy when some “freak” accidents happen and people sue. Actually, being well informed in the sphere, many of these strange laws do arise only as a result of a freak lawsuit.
    Lack of sources is irrelevant, this is a for-fun article people, you want sources, read the bills, the constitutions.

  17. Andar

    each country have unique culture,……so….nothing weird on those law,……I`am Indonesian,…..we don`t have such law as mention above …….please correct it……thanks

  18. el vato

    for such a shitty article & and complete waste of time it had me hooked til the very end. I NEED MORE….

  19. krittad

    So I’m sure most of these laws were written in a time where it might have been necessary to have them. Its not like the politician’s are really sitting around thinking of these insane laws. Well, I dont think so anyways.

  20. jack meoff

    Just because these laws are on the books doesnt mean they are enforced. Some of them are hundreds of yrs old!!! Quit nit-picking!!!See the humor people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Ken

    I am from England and have no doubt some of the archaic laws still exist but are so outdated have been lost in time.

  22. Danielle

    I live in Oregon, USA, and I’ve never heard of any of these laws, I call bull shit. Most of them sound rediculous and no way will stand up in court. You cant hang underwear of the opposite sex on the same line? A man cant make love w/a woman w/the smell of sardines on his breath? It’s illegal to carry ice cream in you pocket? What judge really gives a flying fuck about this stuff. Thats why our government and many others are so messed up. Its because they consume their time w/bull shit laws and ignore the real problems…Most of these laws sound like a lie to me though…

  23. nomam

    Did you know in Utah it is illegal to ride a mountain lion while wearing a top hat and singing michael bolton songs?

  24. AJ

    Do your research before claiming these laws are BS. You would be amazed at some of the laws that are not only still on the books, but enforceable. If a law is on the books, it is enforceable…not that many of them will get enforced…but don’t piss off a cop in the area and break one of these strange laws!

  25. ron

    these laws are called “blue laws” and it would present a great hardship to petition the court to erase them. so they just ignore them but on occasion it creats a situation. in oregon an inmate who was a paralegal found thye law still on the book saying that when an inmate was realesed from prision he was to receive a horse blanket a gun and a twenty dollar gold piece. he sued and the authorities were frantic he finally accepted 1500 dollars instead to drop the case when they informed him he would be charged with ex con in possesion and put right back in jail if he accepted a fire arm. also when trying to bust a couple for drugs the officers could see them enguaged in oral sex when they found no drugs they charged them with lewed sex a old statute the da found

  26. Laura Craycraft

    To clarify the Kentucky Law –

    It is illegal in Kentucky to put a ice cream cone in your BACK pocket and walk down the street. In the old days this was how horses were stolen – they would just follow the ice cream.

  27. Matthew

    A lot of you are saying these laws aren’t true. But these are ALL real laws. They are still in the legal books. Just because they are there however does not mean they are actually enforced.

    For instnace it is illegal in California to peel an Orange in a hotel room. This is a very true law. But the fact is its not priority enough for the police members to memorize it as an offense, and they will not likely be checking every hotel to see if you are peeling an orange. But the fact is, its still in the law books.

  28. Brad

    In Kentucky, USA, it is illegal to carry and ice cream cone in your pocket

    it should be an ice cream cone….not and.

  29. John

    No most if not all of these laws are real,most are very old and were made at times when lawmakers needed to show they were passing laws to protect and serve the people usually around election times.
    Many states in the USA have laws regarding how you are to beat your wife but new laws have actually abolished those 100+ yr old laws our law makers just dont go back and see what laws are already on the books or need to be removed, Many laws we currently have have been made laws over and over again with just different wordings.
    and many of the “old laws” still on the books cannot be prosecuted because of interpretations of the bill of rights or other new laws.
    as one poster put it they sometimes use the rediculous laws to stop lawsuits from happening especially ones against Govt and high class or rich persons..
    also keep in mind many of the really old laws are from a time and place we cannot imagine even living in, we are used to cars,planes,trains,refridgerators,ice,canned foods,boxed foods etc.
    things such as these were not even in what they had for science fiction writings back then….

  30. kirby

    in washington it is illegal to carry wirecutters on your saddle; in stanfield oregon it you will be fined if your animals are copulating in public; in texas you cannot order a pitcher of beer at the bar, you must sit at a table.

  31. Hazel

    I’m sure these laws are real but they are not inforced. So for you people saying that these laws are not real.,go to your local court house and look them up.I’m sure you will find that these are real laws.

  32. ajj

    In oklahoma if a couple is heard by two people calling eachother husband and wife, they are legally married.

  33. Scott

    after reading this, i now feel compelled to break every one of these laws (except the ones about bangin animals). i just want to see how strictly enforced they are, even though most of them are bullshit and most of them probably arent laws anymore. and what the hell is up with that oral sex law? i love gettin head. blow jobs keep me motivated, and if anyone tried to take them from me, i would go on a fucking rampage and kill everyone in my path. i will re-post and let u know if i get arrested for any of them.

  34. Scott

    now if youll excuse me, i have to go beat my wife before 9 pm rolls around. im gonna kick the shit out of her.

  35. shay

    i wish texas enforced the law saying criminals are still required to give their victims at least 24 hours oral or written notice before committing a crime! lol
    and for the nonbelievers of some of this nonsense, you should google Ocean Grove, N.J. a town with a population of 7000 that bans almost everything on sundays. Heavy chains block the roads into town, and no cars are allowed to move on the streets. Outdoor work, swimming, fishing, skating or buy even an ice cream cone is banned. Until a newsdealer won a court suit several years ago, papers could not be delivered on Sunday. crazy!

    and ps- kirby, i dont doubt the pitcher of beer thing is a law, but TABC doesnt enforce that law, or even teach it in the class to obtain a tabc card.

  36. shay

    oh, and why is there no mention of the law saying you can beat you wife with a stick as long as its no bigger than your thumb? maybe the ‘rule of thumb’ law isnt on the books anywhere anymore, idk.
    ajj- thats true in texas, if you introduce someone as your husband or wife even once, you are common law married.

  37. Phoenix Asher

    Most of these are actual laws, they just don’t enforce them anymore. They are absurdly funny, lighten up people.

  38. whoda fukcares

    LMAO @ some of these laws, I dont doubt a one, in highschool i was asked to do a paper on strange local laws and you wouldnt belive all the strange shit I found such as,
    In fairfield, Al its against the law to row a boat down Gary Ave.
    In birmingham, Al its illegal for a black man not to tip his hat to a white woman on the street.
    Another Birmingham, Al law states that it is illegal to spit on the sidewalk in front of the court house.

    Of course there are the laws about beating your wife, tying your horse, ect. ect.

  39. bored

    how about. no “eyeballing” a white woman, how about stepping off the sidewalk when whites passed by, how about eating outside restaurants,even though they took your money inside. how about separate water fountains, how abouth the three- fiths rule in voting how about the many “incredulous laws that America was proud of. shit anything is possible when old grungy ass predjudice self serving hypocritic bastards make the laws

  40. lorens

    This stuff is what law is about. When people misuse freedom, laws are made against them. Since Sept 11 it is illegal to have duct tape in your hand luggage. In Nigeria you may be required to wipe you pee off the pavement if you ease yourself at the wrong place. Also a doctor is held by law to inform a patient that he (the doctor) is HIV positive before performing surgery on him, but the patient is free to disclose this information to anyone.

  41. Stormy

    hey im from texas and most of those laws about texas are not true. like for example, if i wanted to go murder someone i wouldnt have to tell them first. ya know? and in kindergarten i had a boyfriend and i said he was my husband and he called me his wife and look who ISNT married!
    but the article was hilarious!

  42. Michelle

    Dude…to everyone on here that’s bitching about the “laws” on this page…GET THE FUCK OVER IT! They may or may not be real, but if you lighten up, you’ll realize that they’re just for laughs. If you don’t like what you read, then go to a different page.

  43. Robert E. McColgan

    I live in ohio,and first why would you get a fish drunk,and 2nd who’s going to know if you do.

  44. Dale noname

    first of all if you feel you have to cuss in your reply then you seem to lack the education needed to give a reply worth reading. Secondly, most of these laws, if they are real, would not be Known by the general public because they are no longer enforced but have not yet been removed from the books. Personally, I just think it is interesting to see ridiculous things local politicians will do with thier power.

  45. Sofie

    my favorite was the one about native americans
    “In Montana a gathering of more than seven Native Americans is considered a war party and you can engage them in open warfare.”
    lets go kill us some natives!!!!!!!

  46. Sofie

    In Massachusetts, USA, it is illegal for mourners to eat no more than three sandwiches at a wake.

    1. Gary Parker

      Hey, I go Deer hunting and seldom return with a Deer! I just as well be hunting Camel! I didn’t get one of those either! Or maybe Jackalope!

  51. Irv

    Most of those are just idiotic applications of real laws.
    Can’t shoot camels in Az?
    Can’t hunt anything not considered either a game animal or a pest.

    Can’t tie a giraffe to a lamppost in Atlanta?
    Of course not, it’s illegal to tie ANY animal to a lamppost in Atlanta.
    Interferes with traffic, and is cruel.

    Note: it is also illegal to shoot anyone who sends you an e-mail with exactly 12 lines of text…. why?
    Because it is illegal to shoot anyone.

  52. Ben

    in pennsylvania Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass. If the horses appear skittish, the motorist must take his car apart piece by piece, and hide it under the nearest bushes.

    by law ‘In London black cabs must carry a shovel with them at all times’ (to clean up the horse poo)

    I think all these laws are true, its just they’re not enforced because they are ridiculous and everyone knows it (so no one knows about them), but they are very funny!

    I live in London and all of the laws listed there from London, England are NOT true. You are allowed to throw a stick to your dog and wife beating if COMPLETELY ILLEGAL.

    I have seen your US laws. Of the I have no problem or really care since you country is financially ruined anyway and has no real future.

    You don’t seem to understand why some of the UK law especially are especially “not stupid”. In the USA if you fly a flag upside down you are indicate your location is in a area or state of distress. In the UK the Royal Highness is the same symbol. During WW2 it was how then communicated with France national headquarters in cases of priority bombing from Germany of v2 rockets.”

    Read or watch Moby Dick the real on to under the traditional right of Why England kept the laws regarding rum. It was customary for whalers of the time the provided the oil that powered lights.

    A police helmet in the UK is used as a “pisspot” as the Kings did as again a monarchical inheritance.

    In London, it is illegal to flag down a taxi if you have the plague. – again from WW2

    In Wetaskiwin, Alberta, Canada, in 1917, it was illegal to tie a male horse next to a female horse. – You are obviously young and American for sure.

    Here is one for you from the UK free. The slur “FUCK” stands for “Find Under Carnal Knowledge”. I it abbreviation for a legal reference area for those who studied law when laws regarding rape were few, but to increase and stop the study that area had to be expanded. Time and time again that people who updated laws for the protection of women and men regarding sexual abuse became tedious to the point people would get frustrated in the editing areas because the word was used so constantly. First it began in the streets by frustrated people saying just the word and evolved from that. Even King George “Like in the movie The Kings Speech” knew it which is why he hesitated until being tutor for his speech impediment because of his temper – again WW2

      Excuse my grammar in my previous comment. I was without my Glasses and it is was 3am when first I wrote it.

      I have always wondered why people of this world have no interest in why a thing is wrong or right, the investigation to chase the real truth.This once meant something in the west and was so at the time it was created.
      If you even read instead of surfed or watched TV grabbing snippets of garbage snatched here and there you might understand.

      “My Country, right or wrong!”
      That is a quote from Oliver Holmes. One of the so called Greatest Supreme Court Justice’s with the one except he also agree with sterilization of the mentally incompetent as he called them. Because he believed that 3 generations of this type would be “sapping the welfare of the state” – That last part on sterilization was used to free some Nazi’s as a result. Those in the Ministry of Justice during WW2.
      I like to refer to WW2 now that Germany has unsealed all the records from that time. Because it is what made America the A Bomb and subsequently a superpower. The unsealed records are now revealing that the War may have been avoidable on 533 pages are scanned and more reside where the Wannsee Conference took place where in 86 mins 9 million maybe more human lives we decided on if Germany had got Russia it would have be and additional 11 million.

      which now contains some documents added to this memorial home
