10 of the World’s Most Bizarre Laws

Tibetan monks need permission to reincarnate

In one of history’s most absurd acts of totalitarianism, China bannedBuddhist monks

in Tibet from reincarnating without government permission. According to a statement

issued by the State Administration for Religious Affairs in 2007, the law, which strictly

stipulates the procedures by which one is to reincarnate, is “an important move to

institutionalize management of reincarnation.” (Link)

Yellow margarine is illegal in Missouri, US.

Did you know that if you buy yellow margarine in Missouri you’re committing a crime?

A 19th century state law banned the sale of yellowmargarine, though “it’s been years

since any violator was ordered to spread them.” Most of Missouri’s restrictions on

imitation butter date to 1895, and they were last amended in 1939. Although the state

no longer enforces them, the penalties could still make dealers in contraband dairy

product toast: up to a month in jail and a $100 fine for first-time offenders and six

months in jail and a $500 fine for repeat offenders.

Enforcement of the law falls to the state Agriculture Department, and officials there

didn’t know when someone was last prosecuted under it. Case records from the late

19th and early

20th century show that Missouri courts upheld the constitutionality of the restrictions

in several appeals.Agriculture Department spokeswoman Misti Preston said it’s likely

that the Legislature restricted margarine and other imitation butter products

to protect Missouri’s dairy industry, which was a key business for the state in the

early 20th century. (LinkPhoto)

It’s illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament in England

The reason people are banned from dying in parliament is that it is a Royal palace.

Anyone who dies there is technically entitled to a state funeral. So if they see you

looking a bit sick they carry you out quickly. However, a spokesman for the House

of Commons said: “The people who know about these things here say there is no basis

for such a law, not to say it does not exist somewhere in writing.” (Link)

Brazilian men allowed to return non-virgin brides

You could expect it in a Muslim country, but actually in Brazil, the country famous

for its hot carnivals, from 1916 until 2002, men were able to obtain an annulment up

to ten days after the wedding if they discovered that their wife was not a virgin before

marriage. I bet Brazillian men probably expected that these fine ladies stamped in Rio’s

postcard were all virgins. (By the way, a recently law in Brazil has for

bidden Brazilian postcards featuring women in bikini, shame on them) . (Link)
