There are some wacky laws all over the world. Politicians must be cut from the same cloth no matter where they reside.

Highly entertaining; I'm worried monkeynips may have been over credulous --some of them sound too good to be true!

Thanks for all the gret feedback. As you can imagine, I had a lot of fun researching this puzzle and I'm glad many of you enjoyed it. And to answer Beth's question, all of the phrases have been actual laws at some period or time, believe it or not. Here are all ten phrases and clues for those interested.

it is illegal to recite poetry while skiing down a mountain in switzerland ("Yodeling is allowed")
a person must be intelligent to attend college in china ("Well, duh!")
french pig farmers may not address their charges as napoleon ("Complex swine?")
a scotsman can be fined two cans of beer for wearing briefs under his kilt ("Nooooooooo!")
it is against the law in singapore to speak to a donkey in chinese ("Lost in translation?")
norwegian children over the age of twelve may not tell knock knock jokes ("Grow up!")
australian law prohibits the wearing of hot pink pants on sunday afternoon ("Fashion policing in Oz")
it is a violation of turkish law to lust after your neighbors livestock ("Thou shalt not covet...")
leaving the house without wearing underwear is a criminal act in thailand ("Don't get cheeky!")
committing suicide in england is a capital offense punishable by death ("Talk about overkill!")
