Weirdest Laws In the World

The Top Ten

1 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

Not true. I Married a Colombian women, did not happen and she never heard of this law. Her married friends and relatives say the same, not true.

So... women can only have sex if the mother watches? What if the sex is WITH the mother? Or it is a gay relationship with two MEN?

It doesn't say a mother has to be blindfolded and how is the gov. Supposed to know when you have sex

I wouldn't want my mom to see me having sex, and she wouldn't want to watch! Yuck!

2 The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation

But don't you do it alone anyway? How would you get caught? And just imagine how embarrassing it would be when you do get caught. "You are sentenced to death for playing with your genitals! "

I would think that they would cut something else off...

I would have been dead a LOONG time ago... Yes, I will admit.

But come on, who hasn't?

Cutting of WHICH head though? Heheh if the doer is a guy at least.

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

That is absolutely false. As a Lebanese, I have never heard of that rule (nor is it even remotely acceptable) of a man or woman to have sex with any animal. This seems like hate speech.

Hi honey, did you have a daily sheep today? Glad I am not a female and live there!

Why is it always the top ones that are about SEX! Sorry... just my opinion

How would the guys even do it with the guy animals.. Just saying

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

Well there's something I've never witnessed on a trip across the river...

I live near Liverpool, never seen any tropical fish store lol.

Tropical Fish love dat kind of stuff

I feel jealous of the fisher-salesmen.

5 In Iceland, it is illegal to own a dog

I fully agree with that law. No living being should ever be owned. You own inanimate objects, property, NOT living beings. I'm so fed up with this mentality that other species should be owned, and should be forced to live in human homes. Just let them live their own lives. If they want human interaction, they'll seek it out. They're not stupid creatures, like most humans are.

Most pets are owned because they provide some actual love to the owner, and they don't make you feel lonely.

So, person-Who-i-don't-know-their-name, your saying that no animal should be owned. If you didn't realize, there are some dogs out their who are living in the wilderness, no food, water, shelter, love, care... It is our job, to not "own" exactly, but to care for the pups and other animals out there alone and suffering. We give them food, water, etc, in return for their love and affection. We are basically saving them from something terrible happening to them (AKA death).

That is why Iceland people grow up lonely and untrained for the wilderness ( I think this is bull). And that's Why Iceland was not supposed to be a country. ICELAND SUCKS BOI!

Illegal to own a dog?! That is literally the most stupid law in the world. What happens to dogs bred in Iceland? Seriously, would they arrest you for breeding them?!

6 In Saudi Arabia, women are not allowed to drive a car in public

Saudi Arabia treats women like property. All women are forced to marry, but to love someone. Raping a woman is also legal, until she is well. Having 3 wifes at a single time is also legal.

This is so dumb, so in Saudi Arabia women are just a sex machine this is awful...

In Saudi Arabia women are treated like fifth class citizens, it is cruel and needs to stop.

They changed the law, women are allowed to drive

What's wrong with women drivers? Gender equity!

7 It is illegal to kiss your wife on Sundays in Grand Haven, Michigan

I lived in Michigan but not there my dad would be like " is that the law ok we're moving

Eww... Seriously?! That is like the dumbest law in the world!

8 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

I'm Muslim too but in my Muslim country we never practice this!

It's true, this is a Islam law!

Not true at all!

Wow, what a difference, IT'S ON A MIRROR! So different! (That is sarcasm, obviously).

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

So if she shanks him, she goes to prison but if she strangles him nobody cares?

What? This is so fake, please do some research before making a list..

Non-senses! No such thing!
Hong Kong law and regulations are backboned by British law.

This should be a worldwide law...

10 In Swaziland, teenage girls were forbidden to have sex for 5 years to prevent AIDS

I think this rule is for the best. Having sex while you are a teenager is disgusting, repulsive, a serious sin, and entirely counter-intuitive. This may sound wrong, but if you want to do it so bad, just masturbate.

Rock Fashionista: Masturbating is a sin as well, did you not read the Bible? Do you masturbate? Are you seriously Christian? You must be a teenager who's parents influenced the religion on you, and you got no idea.

PS: I'm an atheist.

Shouldn't be on here. It is better to be a virgin than to be Aids patient. Perverts put it here.

The Contenders

11 Chewing Gum is Banned - Singapore

Even though Singapore sounds like the coolest place, it sucks that you can’t chew gum. I guess that’s one of the many reasons it’s so clean.

Is it like the equivalent to smoking pot?

Schools there with gum.

12 In Santa Cruz, Bolivia it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time

How is anyone suppost to know if they are having sex and how would you do that at the same time anyway? What the heck would be wrong with that person but how is that a law

What if daughter dose not like it.

13 People who do not own a burial plot will not be buried when they die - France
14 It's illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament in England

What are they gonna do, arrest you after you are dead? How does that make any sense? You cannot help it when you die. I always thought English people were weird. This law helps me prove I'm right. That is to stupid!

These are laws which were made hundreds of years ago but no one has changed, so technically they're still a law. I bet America have some stupid ass laws too.

It's actually because it falls under the jurisdiction of the coroner of the Queen's household.

Laugh out loud! What are they going to do? Take a dead guy to court?

Something about some expensive funeral I can't remember.

15 Muslims 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 a piece of wood at all times

So does that mean that if a Muslim visitor visits a history museum, he or she will get arrested just for looking at the penis of a mummy?

If you like it then you better put a brick on it? Don't they have sacred cloth or something?

Wouldn't it be more practical to use a towel or paper rather than a brick?

16 Brazilian men are allowed to return non-virgin brides

Bull..
I'm Brasiliam,
There's no rules for that.
Country of Carnaval.
Everyday someone would give they bridge back.

17 Carpooling is not allowed if you live in Canada

Not true, we have carpooling lanes and special parking lots for those that will car pool

Lie! We Canadians carpool a lot, and we even have designated areas for carpoolers!

This is false. Carpooling is very common in Canada, and we have carpooling lanes

Holy crap I'm Canadian and this is so fake. Stupid liars

18 In North Carolina it's illegal to sing off key

How is this illegal in that state? I'm pretty sure some people can't sing on key to an entire song for a length of 3-5 minutes.

Although autotune sucks, this is just insane. Real voices are never on key all the time, there are occassional errors.

This isn't fair not everyone can sing on key

If this is true, then I am lucky to be alive.

19 In Finland, traffic fines are calculated as a percentage of the offender's income

And how exactly is that a weird law?
Logically, it makes sense that someone earning 100 times as much as the average person has to pay a lot more to make him care about the fine.

I wish they had that in america.

Like " Man do you know you were speeding $1,000 ticket.Oh your that rich mans son $50,000

This law is awesome

20 In most Middle Eastern countries, after having sexual relations with a lamb, it is a mortal sin to eat its flesh

LOL dude... now that's made up.

21 It's illegal to sell sex toys in the state of Alabama

But if you live there, can you go to the next state buy one and bring it back with you? They say illegal to sell, not to own

It's better to have real sex relationship anyway

If this is true, then this is a smart law.

22 It Is Illegal In Ney York to Throw Salmon at Mailmen

Why do I laugh so hard when I read this? LOL. I mean, come on! They are already bait for dogs, why make it worse?

I have a feeling 99% of this list is false

Who the heck has made these rules?

I'm pretty sure no one does that

23 In the Netherlands, you are allowed to smoke cannabis but not tobacco (in public places)

This is not true. You cannot smoke in public places, that's true. But you also cannot smoke cannabis in public places. And with public places I mean hotels, restaurants, bus and train stations, club and bars etc.
However most club and bars you can smoke there, even though the law not to smoke. In restaurant, shops and hotels you still can't smoke. In coffeeshops, the one without coffee ;) you can smoke

It should be that way! Cannabis is not harmful in anyway and it cures epilepsy and cures some types of cancers and no one has died from it, while tobacco on the other hand has no medicinal benifits and tobacco kill around 1.3 million people per year.

Say what?! This must be wrong surely? Little kids getting high on dope fumes?

24 In Denmark it is legal to publicly burn the national flag but not the flags of foreign countries.

This is because Denmark considers this a matter of foreign relations.

25 You can't spray paint a duck blue and give it up for sale in Kentucky

And Pea Brained Morons call England stupid, just because of some royalty law about parliament made centuries ago.

Oddly specific...but I'm sure someone will still break this law.

Okay, I'll just spray paint it red.

Who would do that?!?!
