A recent poll by a UK TV station unearthed the UK's top 10 most ridiculous British laws.
They are:

1. It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament

2. It is an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing the British king or queen's image upside-down

3. It is illegal for a woman to be topless in Liverpool except as a clerk in a tropical fish store

4. Eating mince pies on Christmas Day is banned

5. If someone knocks on your door in Scotland and requires the use of your toilet, you are required to let them enter

6. In the UK a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants, including in a policeman's helmet

7. The head of any dead whale found on the British coast automatically becomes the property of the King, and the tail of the Queen

8. It is illegal not to tell the tax man anything you do not want him to know, but legal not to tell him information you do not mind him knowing

9. It is illegal to enter the Houses of Parliament wearing a suit of armour

10. It is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls of York, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow

In Washington: A law to reduce crime states: "It is mandatory for a motorist with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he is entering the town.

In West Virginia: No children may attend school with their breath smelling of "wild onions."

In Nevada, where I live: It's still "legal" to hang someone for shooting your dog on your property.

It is illegal to drive a camel on the highway. (yes, we have camels in Nevada)

I think in Sploofusland it states: "One shall not use the HOFF in a speedo as an avatar, punishable by death....."

Regarding Number 5 there was a sketch on a scottish comedy show called 'Chewin' The Fat', where a guy knocked on a door and asked to use the toilet. THe homeowner let him in, showed him the toilet. When he closed the door it happened to have a clear glass door and the homeowner just sat down and wouldnt let the guy leave.

Really would put you off knocking on someones door to use their toilet if that could happen. lol

A great list...

Apparently, in my old home town, it is illegal to peep in the window of a parked car.

Since Martin put up a pic of the Hoff in a speedo for his avatar, I decided to put a pic of Martin in HIS speedo for my avatar.

Hey - no fair! That was sent to you as a gift of a 'personal nature'.
And I should explain that on the day that was taken, my goitres were giving me bother; hence the protective outsize clothing.
That aside, it's a pretty good likeness.
