Yeah Right!

The recently published 'The Observer Book of the Body', has listed ten outlandish laws about the body.

  1. In vermont, women must obtain written permission from their husbands to wear false teeth.
  2. 'Female breasts', according to the Arizona Supreme Court, don't constitute 'private parts'.
  3. In Merryville Missouri, women are prohibited from wearing corsets because 'the privilege of admiring th curvaceous, unencumbered body of a young woman should not be denied to the normal , red blooded American male'.
  4. In Massachusetts, an old ordinance declares goatees illegal unless a special license fee is paid for the privilege of wearing one in public.
  5. In the UK, no boy under the age of 10 may see a naked mannequin.
  6. A pregnant British woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants - even, if she so requests, in a policeman's helmet.
  7. In Liverpool, it is illegal for a woman to be topless in public unless she works as a clerk in a tropical-fish store.
  8. In Singapore, people are forbidden from walking around their houses naked.
  9. In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a womans genitals but is forbidden from looking directly at them during the examination; he may only see their reflection in a mirror.
  10. In Indonesia, the penalty for masturbation is decapitation.
I seem to recall hearing about '6' when I was a boy, but I'm convinced they made up '7'.

Regarding number 6...that's all well and good but you can never find a cop when you need one.

MJ- And when you do find one, they don't wear the traditional 'tit' shaped helmet.

Convict- I wonder if the goatee ban includes 'Brazilians'.

...and that's how Merryville got it's name!

Does the goatee ordinance include the often misidentified Van Dyke?

Convict: I think you should be more concerned about not visiting Indonesia.

In relation to number 6...

I've been told (by a policeman) that ANYONE can pee anywhere they life - as long as you use the excuse that you were in pain.

Reason being, it's apparently dangerous (medically) to hold it in when it really needs to come out.

It's also (apparently) the ONLY valid and accepted excuse for pissing in the street after a few shandy's.

By the Way never move to Connorsville, Wisconsin where there is some outdated law that no man shall shoot off a gun while his female partner is having a sexual orgasm.

This law was obviously written before Rabbits and Dolphins were rampant. Because how does the man know she is having an orgasm back home while he fires his gun?

Rimshot- I wonder who benefits most from the corset law. Fit women only, I imagine.

Is the 'Van Dyke' a male pubic arrangement, also known as the, 'Dick Van Dyke'.

MJ- Do they have a 'Wank Squad', I wonder?

P & T- I think you'd be

No wonder people have little respect for politicians if these are actual laws!
