Len Dastard asks… what's your favourite stupid law?
Atención! It is I, Len Dastard, a full time litigation executive writing under the guise of a retired Mexican lucha libre. I am taking a short break here from fighting your corner and instead highlighting the ridiculous side of the law. Some of these made me choke on my refried bean enchilada.
In a not so recent public survey of the most ridiculous laws, the law voted to be the most idiotic was "It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament." Not such a bad thing, surely. Now, I have not trawled through every Act ever passed to see whether it is genuine so I must take their word for it.
I recognise that the avid Bitterwallet readers are keen students of both the idiotic and the law, so I thought it worth asking for your opinion on which of the following laws you might consider your favourite. Many of these laws are archaic so it will be almost impossible to trace them. However, I would be incredibly impressed by anyone who is able to put a law to an Act. It would also be interesting to see why you think these laws possibly came about.
Vote below please, and as always, for any other consumer advice or to vent your anger, get in contact with me, Len Dastard at firstname.lastname@example.org. Until next time, permanezca hermoso!
