Strange Laws 2

 It is illegal for a cab in the City of London to carry rabid dogs or corpses.
But it’s alright to pick up people who urinate themselves and vomit all over the place, give me a rabid dog any day.

It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament.
When I watch them on the telly most of them look dead, and what is the sentence if you do break this law.

It is an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing the British monarch upside down.
Treason is still a capital offence in England, so you’ve been warned.

In France, it is forbidden to call a pig Napoleon.
But it’s alright to call them Josephine  

In Ohio, it is against state law to get a fish drunk.
My cat told me this, just after he told me he loved me.

 Royal Navy ships that enter the Port of London must provide a barrel of rum to the Constable of the Tower of London.
Don’t ask this guy for directions….. ask my cat

  In Lancashire, no person is permitted after being asked to stop by a constable on the seashore to incite a dog to bark.

  In Indonesia, the penalty for masturbation is decapitation.
Now that is a danger w@&k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 In England, all men over the age of 14 must carry out two hours of longbow practice a day.
Hang on are we still on the subject of Indonesia penalties?

In the UK, a man who feels compelled to urinate in public can do so only if he aims for his rear wheel and keeps his right hand on his vehicle.
Unless of course in the middle of longbow practice.

In Florida, unmarried women who parachute on Sundays can be jailed.
At last a law that make sense.

In Kentucky, it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon more than six-feet long.
Right then I’ll unpack my longbow.

In the city of York, it is legal to murder a Scotsman within the ancient city walls, but only if he is carrying a bow and arrow.
And if he is its best not to disturb him because he is obviously wan…. Oops … I mean practicing.

In London, it is illegal to flag down a taxi if you have the plague.
Lucky I don’t abide by this law, or I would never have anyone to pick up!

Strange Laws

You can’t plow a cotton field with an elephant in North Carolina
Could someone from North Carolina tell me why not because I have successfully ploughed many a field with my elephant!
Lawn darts are illegal in Canada.
 Someone tell me why, and if this is true, why are Mounties legal?
In Idaho a citizen is forbidden by law to give another citizen a box of candy that weighs more than 50 pounds.
But is it ok to give them two 25pound boxes?
Every citizen of Kentucky is required by law to take a bath at least once a year
Anyone from Kentucky brave enough to tell us if you’ve broken that law or do you know someone who has, we have to know.
Its against the law to whale hunt in Oklahoma
Where the hell are the whales in Oklahoma?
An old law in Bellingham Washington made it illegal for a woman to take more than 3 steps backwards while dancing.
So if that’s enforced, the dance would end three miles from were it started!
In Breton, Alabama there is a law on the town’s books against riding down the street in a motorboat.
There goes my fishing trip
Connecticut and Rhode Island never ratified the 18th amendment, Prohibition.
God they must be getting thirsty there.
In New York State, it is still illegal to shoot a rabbit from a moving trolley car.
Well I wont be going there on holiday then.
In riverside, California, there is an old law on the city’s books which makes it illegal to kiss unless both people wipe their lips with rose water.
This one easy to work out, the guy who made rose water lobbied for that.
In Saudi Arabia, a woman reportedly may divorce her husband if he does not keep her supplied with coffee.
Don’t they have about ten wives’s there; they would be making coffee all day.
In San Salvador drunk drivers can be punished by death before a firing squad.
That would make you think twice before you drove over the limit.
In Kentucky, its illegal to carry ice cream in your back pocket.
And hopefully they too are punished by a firing squad!
In Somalia, Africa it’s been decreed illegal to carry chewing gum on the tip of your nose.
I’m running out of places to go on holiday here, and places to carry my gum!
In some smaller towns in the state of Arizona, its illegal to wear suspenders.
Well I’m definitely not going there then!
In 1845 Boston had an ordinance banning bathing unless you had a doctors prescription
Does anyone from Boston know anyone who still obeys that?
In Michigan its illegal to place a skunk inside your bosses desk
What about putting it in the filing cabinet?
Its illegal in Alabama to wear a fake mustache that causes laughter in church.
Could someone in Alabama put that law to the test, and get back to us.
In parts of Alaska its illegal to feed alcohol to a moose.
Why don’t they move all the moose’s to Connecticut and Rhode Island, problem solved.
You’re subject to fines or imprisonment for making ugly faces at dogs in Oklahoma.
What if you are just ugly, and who is the judge?... the dog or the police?
Christmas was once illegal in England.
Wish it was now it would save me a fortune.
In Hartford, Connecticut, it is illegal for a husband to kiss his wife on Sundays.
This law should surely be extended to cover the whole week!

Google Plus

I’ve just set up my Google Plus account and am very impressed with the interface, the security setting and the ease to upload photos. Also the use of Google Plus circles is very good to keep friends, family and acquaintances separate, so if you only want family to see photo’s of your holiday, especially the ones of you in your Speedo’s , just set the photo’s to family no one outside the family circle will be able to view them.  You can have as many circles as you want, so if you want to keep work colleagues and old school friends separate its easy to make new circles.
With the stream on Google Plus, to me is much better than Facebook news feed, if you only want to see what your work colleagues are saying you just click onto their link. It will only show what they’ve been saying. Let’s be honest how sick are we all of Facebook news feed people telling us what their having for dinner, who cares. Although it will happen on Google Plus. By the way I had steak and chips last night.
Although i can’t see any way of doing a direct message as you can on Facebook, but i might not have found it yet, I’m sure Google Plus will update that at some point.  It’s still in its trail period so they are looking for feedback, but I think Google Plus will give Facebook a run for its money.
If you’ve already got Google Plus let me know your views of it. If you haven’t got it, it’s on an invite only at the moment, so if you want to give it a go and have a look yourself, just drop me a line and I’ll send you an invite.
