15 Strangest Laws Around the World (Part 1)

The process of creating laws can be contrived, but some of the strangest laws have nothing to do with everyday life at all. These strange laws from around the world are so weird you’ll be asking yourself what drugs the lawmakers were on when they made them. Check them out for yourself below, and prepare for a good laugh!

Number Fifteen: Ohio. Do you know the saying, “drunk as a fish”? Well, in Ohio, it’s illegal to get a fish drunk! How about that for some irony? Fishermen can get as drunk as they want as long as they don’t share with the fish.

Number Fourteen: Switzerland. In Switzerland, it’s illegal to flush the toilet after 10 p.m. Looks like you better get all of your “heavier” business done before then or risk stinking up your entire house.

Number Thirteen: Texas. It’s illegal to threaten someone with an unloaded gun in Texas. We’re guessing it’s probably illegal to threaten someone with a loaded gun as well, but considering it’s Texas, who knows.

Number Twelve: Florida. In Florida, you can fart in public at your leisure on every day of the week – except Thursday. Well, except for Thursday after 6 p.m. Yup, it’s illegal to fart in a public place after 6 p.m. on Thursday in Florida. Save those nachos for Friday.

Number Eleven: Michigan. Chaining an alligator to a fire hydrant is illegal if you’re in Michigan. And since Michigan is just covered with alligators, this is clearly extremely relevant. Way to go, Michigan.

Number Ten: Lebanon. In Lebanon, a man caught having sex with a male animal will be sentenced to – get this – the death penalty! Having sex with a female animal is completely legal, though, and there are no laws in regards to women fornicating with animals. Are the men in Lebanon really that horny? We doubt it.

Number Nine: Florida. Yet another gem from Florida and continuing on the animal train of thought, it’s illegal to have sex with a porcupine in Florida. This is either a jab at the intelligence of Florida’s residents or some inside legal joke that nobody will ever understand.
