Laws That Make You Go "Hmm..." (Worldwide Edition)

You've probably heard or read about all sorts of weird laws in the United States. Well, the U.S. doesn't have the monopoly on quirky laws. Read on! DISCLAIMERS: Most of these questions refer to whether or not these laws were enacted, not whether or not they are enforced. Often, odd, archaic laws are not repealed, but are just left on the books to fade away into obscurity. Also, some of these laws may seem odd on the surface, but were enacted to address serious problems. No disrespect is intended towards any of the cultures behind these laws.
