Laws exist to keep society from wreaking havoc and bringing down the entire human civilization, and we absolutely, unequivocally need them… well, most of them. Some laws are so stupid you wouldn’t believe they were passed by any form of government. Check out the following ridiculous laws from around the world, because you if you were planning to move to Hong Kong anytime soon, you might want to rethink your life choices (and move to Denmark instead!).

1. Denmark

In Denmark, you don’t have to pay for your meal unless you are “full” by your own personal standards at the end of the meal. If you do not feel “full”, you may proceed to leave without paying for your meal. Oh god, every restaurant in the Midwest would go bankrupt within a week if they brought this law to the states. In any event, I know where I’m going for my next vacation!

2. Japan

In Japan, it is illegal for men and women to be overweight. They call it the “metabo law”, and it states that no man over 40 can have a waist measuring over than 32 inches and women aged 40 have to keep it within 32 inches. However, individuals can’t be punished for breaking the law, so it only exists to put pressure on local governments and companies to keep its underlings in shape. Oh, Japan, I love you because I’ll never understand you!

 

3. Philippines

It is illegal to get divorced in the Philippines, soooooooo… don’t get married in the Philippines? 🙁

4. Singapore

Chewing gum in Singapore has been illegal since 1992, and you can be slapped with a $500 fine if you spit gum out on the streets. That means that if you’re planning to have a hot date in Singapore anytime soon, PACK THAT BAG WITH THOSE BREATH MINTS, PLAYA!

5. England

Up until recently, it was illegal to die in Parliament in England, because anyone who dies in Parliament is entitled to a state funeral. But now you can die AS MUCH AS YOU WANT IN PARLIAMENT, BECAUSE THEY UPDATED THE LAW!! Yayyy! Yay? 🙁

6. France

France is gonna let you have that pig, aright, but you CANNOT name it Napoleon. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL YOU NAME A PIG NAPOLEON IN FRANCE. (Just call him N’Oleon — THEY’LL NEVER KNOW!)

7. Saudi Arabia

It is illegal for a woman to drive any car in Saudi Arabia. Man, f*** that. I hope whoever wrote that law had a heart attack and desperately needed his wife to drive him to the hospital, and she was all, “Sorry brah, no can do. Law’s the law THAT YOU MADE UP YOU PIECE OF GARBAGE!” Actually, I just really hope it’s legal for women to call their husbands “brah”, but I’m going to guess it’s not. 🙁

8. Thailand

It is illegal to step on money in Thailand. According to legend, if you step on a dollar’s back, your mother gets hooked on crack! (Not really though).

9. Hong Kong

In Hong Kong, it is legal for a wife to kill her husband if she catches him cheating, but she must do it WITH HER BARE HANDS. Sooooooooo… don’t get married in Hong Kong? (Especially to Ronda Rousey).

10. Greece

In 2003, all electronic video games were banned in Greece. The country was trying to put a stop to illegal gambling online, but enforcing the law was too difficult when trying to prohibit specific games. Thus, the government ordered that EVERY video game be made illegal. I think it’s safe to say that no Chaostrophic fan plans to move to Greece anytime soon.

11. Switzerland

It is illegal to flush a toilet after 10pm in Switzerland, which I think we can all agree is by far the WORST law on this list, and the number one reason I’m actually happy to be typing this in the United States of F***ING America right now. #FreeToFlush
