Our Fun Facts for today consist of some funny laws existing in different countries. A few of them might be just a little outdated. But judge for yourself…
In Canada, if you are released from prison, it is required that you are given a handgun with bullets and a horse, so you can ride out of town.
Yeah right, so that you don’t have any means to do further harm – none at all.
In France, no pig may be addressed as Napoleon by its owner.
Would Hollande be OK?
In Alaska, U.S., it is considered an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane.
Seriously, who would do that?
In Florida, U.S., it is considered an offense to shower naked.
In Idaho, U.S., it is illegal for a man to give his sweetheart a box of candy weighing more than 50 lbs (~ 23 kg).
I take this as a personal offense – gimme my candy!
In Ohio, U.S., it is illegal to get a fish drunk.
First of all, how would someone get that done? Secondly, how could anyone ever tell??
In Kentucky, U.S., no female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club.
[Ammendment] The provisions of this statuate shall not apply to […] to female horses.
OK, so does this mean that women and female horses are on the same level and even more disturbing – do horses in Kentucky usually wear bathing suits?
In Pennsylvania, U.S., all fire hydrants must be checked one hour before all fires.
Yeah, because you know when there will be a fire. They are always so reliable.
In Texas, U.S., criminals are required to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed.
Dear Madam and Sir, I hereby inform you about my intention to murder you tomorrow at 8 p.m. I f this time does not suit you, we can reschedule. Sincerely yours,…
Hope that cheered you up a bit 🙂
See you soon,
