Weird and Unusual Laws

I was recently listening to a comedian who likes to explore unusual, weird, unique, or very outdated laws..... I got some of these from him...and looked some up... it's quite amazing...........

Did you know:

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Apparently, having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death!!
(Okay, that makes PERFECT sense...)

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals....but is prohibited from looking directy at them during the examination!! He is only permitted to see their reflection in a mirror.
(What? Does it all look different in reverse??)

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.....
(Okay...I've heard of real stiffies...but this is ridiculous!! A frickin brick??)

Did you know.....the penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation?
(OMG, that's way worse than going blind!!)

There are men in Guam whose full time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who actually pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time..... (no selling THAT online...) The reason you ask? Under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.......
(Okay, isn't that backwards??? Guess those guys probably just LOVE their job!)

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband.....but may only do so with her bare hands... (What??) The Husband's illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired......
(Okay...again... BACKWARD!!)

Did you know.....that topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England -- but only in tropical fish stores......... (Well, obviously!!! ????) In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband.....and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act......
(OMG, can you EVEN imagine??? Even worse for the poor guy.....I'm Just Sayin...)

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia....it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman -- AND -- her daughter at the same time..........
(aaaaaahhhhh....come again??? No, on the other hand, please don't!!!! There really was a need for this???)

In Maryland it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only in "places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises."
(Makes perfect sense to me.....HIC!)

Just as an aside..... did you know ---- that turtles can breathe through their butts??? Oh yeah, it's true..... (...and I thought I had bad morning breath!!!) ......I'm Just Sayin......... :-P
