in california it is illegal to eat an orange in a bathtub confused,
in alaska it is a federal offence to throw a moose out of a moving vehicle!!,
and in york you can shoot a scotsman if its with a longbow!!!! eek
i know pointless!!
just wondering if anyone knew any more?

Every black cab in london has to have a bale of hay in the trunk.

and a black cab driver can urinate in publi as long as it's on the back wheel of his vehicle and his left hand is on the roof.

(i wanna drive a black cab) ubblol

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

hmm, in michigan you can be arrested for swearing if you're under 18 or female... or, if, as a male you swear and someone of these persuasions hears it.... (watch bolwing for columbine smile)

thet taught us that in "D.A.R.E. 'to keep kids off drugs'"

thats really one of the better things they taught us...

oh, and i think its illegal to eat or otherwise use a deer you've killed with a vehicle unless you have a permit

Nice one wink

(I'm sure this probably counts as spam, but that made me laugh the hardest I have done for 3 days now)

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

Its a sod when there isnt anywhere to tie your horse at a pub.

Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

In texas its illegal to whip your wife with a belt wider than 1 inch without her permission-anything smaller and no permission is needed!

i think there's one in memphis where a woman can't drive down the street unless their partner is walking in front waving a red flag!

Somewhere in the world it's illegal to steal chickens in the light of day -someone had a good think about that one obviously!

Thoughts arrive like butterflies...

i heard this as nothing thicker than your thumb, and apparently that's where the term "rule of thumb" comes from

Another good one, i think it's an old australian train law...if two trains approach each other on the same track, neither one can move until the other one has passed confused

i dont know about the rest of Australia, but in the NT the horse rule does still apply. there was a write up about it in the paper, the MP dude was saying that the law still exsists, but no one would face fines for not complying.

apparently in Liverpool it's illegal for a woman to be topless in public, unless she works at a tropical fish shop confused
