I found out the other day that it is against the law to eat mince pies on Christmas day. Does anyone else know if this is true?
Also, I'd like to hear your other funny laws. True ones, please. Grin

The Law Commission mentions a few oddities here .

But I'm sure there are many more!

5 out of 10, could do better.

Isn't it still law that all boys under the age of 12 should go to church on Sunday followed by 4 hours of archery practice - or has someone been telling porky pies?

Used to be, but I think that one was removed relatively recently...

Until quite recently, attempted suicide carried the death penalty. Logical really.

I like the listings under Police in the odd laws link.

Maybe we should add "being or appearing to be a photographer" Smile Smile
