Some are reminiscent of past times — from as far as 19th century — that are still on the books and others are the work of the contemporary minds of brilliant politics. Many of the laws on this list have been verified to be true, however, many were taken from scattered sources and its veracity is hard to prove.

You can help us make the list bigger and better by sharing any other weird laws you may know about.
