It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament.

It is an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing the British monarch upside-down.

Mince pies cannot be eaten on Christmas Day.

A pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants, including in a policeman's helmet.

The head of any dead whale found on the British coast automatically becomes the property of the king, and the tail of the queen.

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

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

Actually that one makes more sense than you might think... Some toads excrete psychoactive or hallucinagenic substances. Toad licking can be akin to huffing paint or eating hallucinagenic mushrooms.

It's illegal to hunt camels in Arizona. And in New York, it's illegal to keep an alligator in your bathtub.

I wish NY would enforce this one:
It is illegal for a woman to be on the street wearing “body hugging clothing”.

Apparently, William the Conqueror ordered that everyone should go to bed at 8 o'clock. Better get my PJs on then...

Apparently if you come across a Welshman after dark within the walls of the town of Chester, you're allowed to shoot him with a long bow!!
This law from the middle ages has apparently never been repealed

Haha!

Two from Ohio I liked:

"It is illegal to get a fish drunk.

The Ohio driver’s education manual states that you must honk the horn whenever you pass another car."

I think the 2nd would freak people out, haha.

From nearby cities: "It’s illegal to catch mice without a hunting license!"

"If one loses their pet tiger, they must notify the authorities within one hour."

Imagine how much damage a tiger could do in an hour! And it's crazy people had pet tigers at one time.

I have recently learned that a law requiring taxi cab drivers in London to carry a bale of hay on the roof of the cab was only repealed as recently as 1976! Neither is it any longer necessary to carry a nosebag on the side of the vehicle, or a sack of oats.

It has long since been assumed that the laws requiring the cabby to carry "adequate foodstuffs for the horse", meant a tank full of diesel!
