        When surfing 4 funny signs to post in PMM's topic, I stumbled upon this cool info about the most bizarre laws of the world.

        Here's a few that caught my attention:

        Yellow margarine is illegal in Missouri, US
        Did you know that if you buy yellow margarine in Missouri you're committing a crime? A 19th century state law banned the sale of yellow margarine, though "it's been years since any violator was ordered to spread them." Most of Missouri's restrictions on imitation butter date to 1895, and they were last amended in 1939. Although the state no longer enforces them, the penalties could still make dealers in contraband dairy product toast: up to a month in jail and a $100 fine for first-time offenders and six months in jail and a $500 fine for repeat offenders.

        It's illegal to sell sex toys in the state of Alabama, US
        In Alabama, the justice is not only blind but sexually frustrated. Alabama's anti-obscenity law, enacted in 1998, bans the distribution of "any device designed or marketed as useful primarily for the stimulation of human genital organs for anything of pecuniary value." The law does not ban the possession of sex toys; residents may legally purchase sex toys out of state for use in Alabama. Be aware, five minutes of pleasure can cost you a lot, since the law has strong penalties: Up to a year in jail and a $10,000 fine for a first offense. A second offense carries a prison sentence of one to 10 years.

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

        The bizarre Dutch policy of allowing smokers to puff away on pure cannabis but not tobacco has perplexed police in the Netherlands, who have fined a man for mixing the two substances. Zero tolerance to tobacco smoking in Dutch cafes and restaurants is being exercised since a ban came into force in 2008. The man was not fined for smoking a cannabis joint but for smoking. You can smoke cannabis but not tobacco in coffee shops. The unnamed 27-year-old man was caught lighting a hand rolled cannabis joint during a routine police check, and fined because officers found tobacco mixed with the soft drug.

        The head of any dead whale found on the British coast automatically becomes the property of the King, and the tail of the Queen
        The Royal Prerogative 1324 decrees that any whale or sturgeon found on the British coast belongs to the monarch. The law is very much still in place, as fisherman Robert Davies found out in 2004 when he was investigated by police in Plymouth. He had faxed the Royal Household to tell them he had caught a sturgeon, and was told to keep it, but did not realize it was still illegal to try and sell it.

        Now let's just see what the rest of u out there can come up with.

        Here is a Illinois law....my home state.

        Women must address bachelors as master instead of mister, according to an Illinois state law. I should be in prison for life on this one!

        I love this one from Washington: In the state of Washington there is a law against having sex with a virgin under any circumstances. (including the wedding night)

        And here you guys thought it would be bliss to have a virgin!!!!!!!!!!!

        I found some good British ones:

        It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament

        In the UK, a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants.

        This one was actually highlighted in a news article on the TV recently.  So ladies if you are pregnant and visit UK, you can "go" wherever you want.

        And my favourite:

        In France it is forbidden to call a pig Napoleon!

        LOL! Too Funny Blue, here's some more:

        In Washington state, it is against the law to boast that one's parents are rich.

        In Maryland, it's illegal to play Randy Newman's "Short People" on the radio.

        In Alabama it is illegal to play Dominoes on Sunday.

        In Virginia, horses of more than one year old are prohibited in a place of worship.

        In Tennessee, shooting any game other than whales from a moving automobile is against the law.

        In Normal, Oklahoma you could be sent to prison for "making an ugly face at a dog."

        What the heck is THAT all about? Strange, but supposedly TRUE.

        Unbelievable - especially the "ugly face at a dog" one. 

        I found a few more:

        In Vermont women must obtain written permission from their husbands to wear false teeth.

        And in the UK any boy under the age of 10 may not see a naked manequin

        On the island of Jersey it's against the law for a man to knit during the fishing season!
        Does any man know how to knit?

        It's all so funny, I pulled up an old email that was sent to me.

        Oklahoma: If dogs wish to congregate in groups of three or more on a private property, they need to obtain a permit which must be signed by the Mayor.

        Idaho: It is illegal for a man to present a box of chocolates to his girlfriend if it weighs anything less than 50 pounds.  (I agree !)

        Los Angeles: While committing a bank robbery, it is illegal to shoot the teller with a water pistol. 

        Hong Kong: A betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband’s lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.

        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.

        Memphis, Tennessee: It is illegal for a woman to drive by herself. A man must walk or run in front of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists if the vehicle is going over 5 mph.

        Kentucky, USA: No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she is escorted by at least two officers or unless she is armed with a club. The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to female horses.
