Many people in Nigeria might believe our laws are not good enough and up to international standards but recently, Yahoo released a list of the World’s strangest laws and Governor Fashola who was rumoured to have ordered Lagosians not to wear flip flop outside their homes doesn’t sound that absurd after all.
See the top ten list here:
In Texas, it’s illegal to milk another person’s cow.
In England, it’s illegal to die in the House of parliament.
In France, it’s illegal to call a pig Napoleon.
You cannot import pictures that show male genitals in Japan
In San Salvador, drunk driving can be punishable by death before a firing squad.
Believe it or not in Singapore, chewing gum is illegal.
In Nigeria it’s no longer acceptable to spray the naira at parties but that’s nothing compared to Thailand where it’s illegal to step on a bank note.
In Switzerland men are not allowed to urinate after 10pm and its also illegal to flush the toilet after that time.
In California, it’s against the law to wiggle when dancing
In Bangladesh, it’s against the law for children to cheat at exams. This is probably a universal law.
If you had the power to sign one law for one day, what would it be? Please drop comments below.
