"Proof that the world is nuts"
« on: September 10, 2007, 09:19:22 AM »
Received this e-mail from a buddy of mine.  The subject line was "Proof that the World is Nuts".  Thought that I'd share and perhaps get a few laughs out of it as I did.  Not sure how much of this is 100% true, but some funny ones none-the-less:

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but
the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.
(Like THAT makes sense.)

In Bahrain , a male doctor may legally examine a woman's
genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during
the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.
(Do they look different reversed?)

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse This
also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased must
be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.
(A brick?)

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation. !
(Much worse than "going blind!")

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the
countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the
privilege of having sex for the first time
Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to
(And I always thought that being a condom tester at the Trojan Company would be the ultimate job..)

In Hong Kong , a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her
adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands.
The husband's illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in
any manner desired.
(Not sure which would be worse...)

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool , England - but only in
tropical fish stores.

In Cali , Colombia , a woman may only have sex with her husband,
and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room
to witness the act.
(Makes one shudder at the thought.)

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with
a woman and her daughter at the same time.
(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass
this law?)

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines
with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending
machine only "in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for
consumption on the premises."
(It's all about priorities I guess...)

We're all going to have to be careful on the Lebananese leg of the tour!
Is Cali near to Santa Cruz? It may explain both laws.
