    Default In case you visit Britain...

    The 10 silliest British laws:

    Most ridiculous British law:

    1. It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament

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

    3. In Liverpool, it is illegal for a woman to be topless except as a clerk in a tropical fish store

    4. Mince pies cannot be eaten on Christmas Day

    5. In Scotland, if someone knocks on your door and requires the use of your toilet, you must let them enter

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

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

    8. 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

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

    10. 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
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Is it illegal to misspell Britain, like you originally did in your thread title?

    What?!? Are you saying the queen has a whale of a tail?

    Here's a local one for me.

    Lovers in Liberty Corner, New Jersey, should avoid satisfying their lustful urges in a parked car. If the horn accidentally sounds while they are frolicking behind the wheel, the couple can face a jail term.

    ............it's legit as long as you don't toot.
