    Some funny laws from the UK as well;

    • Since 1313, MPs are not allowed to don armor in Parliament.
    • All English males over the age 14 are to carry out 2 or so hours of longbow practice a week supervised by the local clergy.
    • No cows may be driven down the roadway between 10 AM and 7 PM unless there is prior approval from the Commissioner of Police.
    And the one I really hate;

    • Those wishing to purchase a television must also buy a license.

    You know, you're not drunk if you can lie on the ground and not have to hold on to anything :D

    Also, are these laws up to date? The subject and the language seem very outdated to me.
