STRANGE LAWS

 

  Is the world nuts or what?  
 
In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex 
with animals, but the animals must be female. 
Having sexual relations with a male animal is 
punishable by death. 
 
(Like THAT makes sense.) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a 
womans genitals, but is prohibited from looking 
directly at them during the examination. He may only 
see their reflection in a mirror. 
 
(Do they look different reversed?) 
 
*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of 
a corpse. This also applies to undertakers; the sex 
organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick 
or piece of wood at all times. 
 
(A brick??) 
 
*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is 
decapitation. 
(Much worse than going blind!) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to 
travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, 
who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the 
first time...Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly 
forbidden for virgins to marry. 
 
(Lets just think for a minute; is there any job 
anywhere else in the world that even comes close to 
this?) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed 
to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so 
with her bare hands. The husbands lover, on the 
other hand, may be killed in any manner desired. 
 
(Ah! Justice!) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England 
- but only in tropical fish stores. (But of course!) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with 
her husband, and the first time this happens, her 
mother must be in the room to witness the act. 
 
(Makes one shudder at the thought.) 
 
*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~**~*~* 
 
In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to 
have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same 
time. 
(I presume this was such a big problem 
they just had to pass this law?) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from 
vending machines with one exception: Prophylactics 
may be dispensed from a vending machine only in 
places where alcoholic beverages are sold for 
consumption on the premises. 
 
(Is this a great country or what? Not as great as 
Guam!) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories 
an hour. 
(Who would volunteer for this kind of stuff?) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
Humans and dolphins are the only species that have 
sex for pleasure. 
 
(Is that why Flipper was always smiling?) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. 
(Hummm....I wont touch THAT one!) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 
30 times its own weight and always falls over on its 
right side when intoxicated. 
 
(From drinking little bottles of...? --( 
 
Who, figured this one out did the 
govt. pay for this research??) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
Butterflies taste with their feet. 
(Ah, geez) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
An ostrichs eye is bigger than its brain. 
 
(I know some people like that.) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
Starfish dont have brains. 
(I know some people like that too) 
 
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* 
 
And, the best for last..... Turtles can breathe 
through their butts. 
 
(Do you suppose they have bad breath?)
