Now that's just creepy - darthvadern
Um... that would be awkward - Randomator
Could they go out of town to do it the first time? - Powell
I would not live in Singapore.
Lol that’s so ridiculous it’s hilarious
Yes. There was a time when chewing gum was banned in Singapore because apparently it could lead to “mischief-making” like “putting chewing gum on our subway train doors so that they don't open.” A single piece of gum could land you a fine of $1000. Do it a second time and you’ll owe the state $2000. A third time means you’ll be forced into hard labor, cleaning the streets while wearing a sign that says “I’m a litterer.” It’s a shame, because chewing gum can actually be a great way to activate your metabolism.
Thankfully this law finally repealed in June 2018 after many protests and petitions from various women's rights organizations in there. - Joeljohns249
And in Turkmenistan, black cars are ruled out - Alkadikce

If I was forced to get married I would live here because my birthdays are so underrated and I don't enough birthday recognitions.
I suspect it's just polynesian culture. Not the worst really at all, however it's a bit odd if I do say so myself - darthvadern
And forgetting your husband's is not? - Alkadikce
Just don't get a wife then. Easy - Randomator
How is Winnie the Pooh inappropriate just because he doesn't wear pants, He's an animal.
It's true. Merchandises based on the cartoon character "Winnie The Pooh" are banned specifically in the area of Tuszyn, Poland. Why? Because that character has been labelled as an "Inappropriate hermaphrodite" as it doesn't wear pants and has non-gender-specific genitalia. Jeez...SJWs are also starting to poison in Poland as well...
Tons of people didn't get a childhood
Budapest has a street named after Winnie the Pooh.
For the record this law is only applicable to the french town of Sarpourenx - Joeljohns249
Why? Because PETA's branch in Rome considers it Animal Cruelty!

Not only is it illegal to feed the animals some refer to as "the rats of the sky," but San Francisco even created an entire webpage highlighting the "dozens" of reasons why. (Hint: So. Much. Poop.) - Joeljohns249
At the lake Balaton, a lot of people feed the ducks inappropriate things like bread and biscuits. - Alkadikce
What’s the punishment? Going to jail lol? Also what if you dropped some food accidentally and they eat it? Is that still breaking the law? - Randomator
I wonder if Shane Dawson and his cat were in Washington when he had his "time" with the cat. - B1ueNew
The state of Washington wasn't even founded until 1889 though, It even says on the picture. - B1ueNew
You are correct. The state of Washington came to be recognized as one only since 1889. However before that time, non-recognized states of US solely abided under the official "United States Constitution" (Supreme Law Book) that was initially created in the year 1787. Since this law was included in the US Constitution's first edition, this law first came into effect since 1787. - Joeljohns249
Why would you do this in the first place? - Randomator
Wait till the cats in Washington start a #MeToo movement of their own... - Joeljohns249
