Everyone is familiar with everyday laws that most of us obey. These can be your everyday things from speeding to just general behavior towards each other, and of course not robbing banks. But aside from these well-known laws, there are some laws so bizarre that you’ll wonder what happened that the law needed to be passed in the first place. Check out these 15 BIZARRE Laws From Around The World.
15 - Hiking naked in Switzerland – It’s fun to think that there is actually a law like this in place for a reason, and one guy found out the hard way that you just can’t go strolling around wearing anything but your birthday suit…
14. Stepping on Money in Thailand is illegal – here is a strange law that could land you in some trouble if you don’t know about it. Although it might not be one that you will have any difficulty avoiding, if there is some Thai money laying on the ground
13. Illegal to be fat in Japan – No one tell Weird Al Yankovich, but if you are in Japan, and you are fat, then you could be in trouble. Although the fine or the consequences of being too fat are unknown, Japan decided it was time to ban being obese.
12. Chewing Gum is Illegal in Singapore – If you like to chew bubble gum, or just enjoy having a stick of mint gum to freshen your breath, you better not do this in Singapore.
11. Owning Too Many Potatoes illegal in Western Australia – If you lived in a communist country, you would expect to find some strange laws about what kinds of food you were allowed to have and how much.
10. Flushing Toilet In Switzerland – Some laws are hard to believe, and some laws are understandable, and then there are the ones that are right in the middle. In another strange Switzerland law, it is illegal to flush your toilet after 10 pm. This is, of course, assuming you live in an apartment building.
9. Feeding Pidgeon’s – here is a law that sounds downright silly until you really understand why it became a law in the first place. In the sunny city of San Francisco, the feeding of pigeons has been made completely illegal. Pigeons aren’t very bright creatures, to begin wit.
8. Forgetting Your Wife’s Birthday – Many of you are saying that this is a no-brainer and we all know we are in trouble if we forget our wife’s birthday, but did you know that somewhere there is actually a law against this forgetfulness. This place is known as Samoa and for some reason, it was made a law.
7. Whaling Banned In Oklahoma – There are probably a lot of you who don’t live in the United States and aren’t probably familiar with the different states. Whaling is banned in many places around the world due to declining whale populations and the fact many are endangered.
6. In Baltimore, Maryland, it’s illegal to bring a lion to the movies – This has to fall into that category of ‘someone had to actually do this for it to become illegal. It’s probably not nice to take a lion to the movies as no one would be entertained except maybe you.
5. Old Mail – This law will probably be a surprise to many. Since 1986, the US Postal Service and any US Authorities get legal access to any mail that is 180 days old, and they don’t need a warrant to open whatever mail that is, be it a letter or even a package.
4. No Minimum Marriage Age – in many countries in the world, there are laws in place that require a person to be an adult before marriage, which is proper in more ways than one besides the fact that little children shouldn’t be married.
3. Wife beating law – We’d like to take this time to remind everyone that we aren’t responsible for any damages arising out of the views of our videos.
2. Walk Your Dog – In some countries, you have to keep your dogs on a leash when you walk them and you have to make sure to clean up after them. But there is no law that says you have to walk your dog, unless you live in Turin, Italy.
1. Changing a lightbulb – Everyone knows how to change a lightbulb. Granted that back in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s it might have been a real chore. But when a light goes out, anyone can change a lightbulb…that is unless you live in Victoria, Australia.
