The laws in the human society vary from place to place and community to community. Some of these are for the common good of the people, some are tough and some rather stupid that gets on to your nerves. Again, there are laws from around the world which are termed as ‘weird laws’ by the inhabitants themselves. But the bottom line is however crazy these laws might be, as citizens it is mandatory to follow.
As I have already mentioned you might come across a number of strange laws which are absolutely absurd in nature. But the most weird and annoying part is that these laws have to be strictly followed by the citizens otherwise they will be subjected to heavy penalty; sometimes as severe as death. You have no other option then to abide by these weird laws and avoid falling into any kind of trouble. We have come up with a list of 20 top weird laws from around the world which will take you back in surprise. They are considered ‘stupid’ by those citizens who need to follow them strictly. What a pity!
