Ten bizarre American laws

Ten bizarre American laws

(2:26) Fancy wrestling a bear? Then avoid Alabama. Bizarre laws are not exclusive to the US though. In England it is illegal for a boy under the age of 10 to see a naked mannequin.

Its much worse on this side of the pond. We've got laws that go back many many centuries but thankfully no judge in his right mind is going to execute someone for treason placing a postage stamp bearing the British monarch upside-down. Crazy-but-true; in the city of York it is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow. And finally, a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants, including in a policeman's helmet.

And over here (UK) Every licensed Hackney Cab (Taxi) is required by law to carry a bail of hay in the boot/trunk....in case the horse gets hungry......old law, not enforces, but still on the books, and quite funny.

Latest comment: No. The boot must be able to hold a bail of hay, not actually carry one.

When people quote strange laws like this, I'd like to see them include the actual statute so it can be verified. Otherwise, I have doubt on some of them such as the drinking beer three times while standing. Sure, a quick Google search reveals several sites quoting the same law but nobody is willing or able to give the actual statute number. I find it incredible that all the sources are news companies and not local law enforcement agencies. Really a $500 fine for detonating a nuclear device within city limits?
