Laws are made to keep societies in order. There are various reasons why a certain law was developed and implemented but there are some laws that seem absurd or useless. Below are some of the laws that can surely get your attention because these sound foolish and crazy.

If we take a look at the history of mankind, we will notice that people develop as well as implement laws to keep their everyday lives more peaceful as well as easier. When a person failed to follow the laws, the individual will face charges and penalties, which can range from fines to life sentence or in some countries, death penalty. Below are some of the laws that can surely get your attention because these sound foolish and crazy.

10. Drinking with Your Pet!

Drinking alcohol beverages is very common in social gatherings. It is also an effective way of relaxing and interacting with other people. However, do you know that in Ohio, people are prohibited to drink with a fish because if they get the species drunk, they will surely be punished. Many people questioned the logic to this law. They usually asked if there was ever a person who had gotten a fish drunk.

A resembling foolish law in the state of Connecticut states that before a pickle be declared a pickle, it should bounce. If the pickle did not bounced, then it will not be recognized as a pickle.

9. Enjoying Oneself

Some cultures do not allow men to masturbate. This is because there are religions, which believe that masturbation is a form of sin. In this regard, if you like to enjoy by touching yourself, then it is best that you avoid visiting countries that has this law such as Indonesia because one of the punishments that you can experience is losing your head.

A similar ridiculous law implemented in San Salvador, El Salvador is punishing drunk drivers with death by firing squad.

8. Beating Your Wife

Many areas in the world have laws regarding domestic violence. However, if you are a resident in Arkansas, beating your wife can be acceptable if you do it once a month. So if you cannot stop yourself from beating your wife, then it is best to schedule when you will hit your partner.

A similar ridiculous law is implemented in Vermont. The law states that a wife can wear false teeth if her husband allows her.

    Good Judgement is not always meted out when people who do not have a talent for Judging well come into positions of authority.

    I have seen other stupid and ridiculous laws but these top the cake, I like the last one, wait until you exit before dying, , what are they going to do if you break the law,…..kill you.
    I also will avoid Arkansas, no way in *** is any man going to have the right to beat me, even if it is once in his life time. Touch me, and he better ask for forgiveness for Jesus, because there will be no mercy from me.

    You is so true but you are missing the most damaging law in the whole world. Something, I will not disclose.

    This was a lot of fun to read and you know, there is a website that has a list of all the strange laws that are still “on the books” in the States: http://www.lawguru.com/weird/part01.html

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. Posted September 20, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    Oh my those are laws are really ridiculous. I hope they’re not in existence anymore.

  9. Posted September 20, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    That is absolutely hilarious. Makes you wonder how these laws were passed and why they are still on the books.

  10. Posted September 20, 2009 at 9:54 pm

    The last one that you mention — once you are dead, how can they punish you? Some of the laws look too silly to be true. Any way, enjoyable read, no doubt.

    All are really outrageous, especially, the first one preventing you from dying within the premises of a church.In fact all these laws must have been enacted when the concerned authorities are insane.There seemed to be utter lack of application of mind.Thanks for sharing.

  12. Posted September 20, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    These are quite funny. I’ve heard other similarly strange laws. It makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
