    Er well my dad is a freeman of the city of London, which involves some cool little things like that, for example my dad if he feels the need could herd his sheep over London bridge. If he had any sheep that is.. not exactly a law I know but quite a cool 'priviledge' if you like.

    I wonder what congestion charge would be for a flock of sheep :s

    Crazy.. I wonder the reason for this.


    I've heard one that it is illegal to wear fake moustache in a church which can make the priest laugh.
    Don't remember where it was though.

    somewhere in the us (too lazy to look up specifics) it's illegal to..

    - ride a donkey in august unless it's wearing a hat

    - put an ice cream cone in your pocket

    - attach (geckos? some small lizard anyway) to your ears (i.e. let them bite you and just hang there)

    - put pennies over your eyes (i think that was one, it's been a while)

    You can't drive an automobile onto the Town Square because it might scare the horses... yes the local laws are really outdated.

    Here's a couple from Pennsylvania :)

    -It it illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors

    -It is illegal to have over 16 women live in a house together because that constitutes a brothel. However up to 120 men can live together, without breaking the law. (So we are better off than Arizona :) )

    -Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue. (not sure if it's even active anymore)

    -Any motorist who sights a team of horses coming toward him must pull well off the road, cover his car with a blanket or canvas that blends with the countryside, and let the horses pass. If the horses appear skittish, the motorist must take his car apart, piece by piece, and hide it under the nearest bushes. (that's pretty ridiculous...)

    -All fire hydrants must be checked one hour before all fires. (from Danville,PA)

    -To be a dominatrix is illegal.
