  1. Now I am feeling weird. Some of those laws make perfect sense to me. Not saying which ones.

    1. I agree on a few as well.

    2. EC, I hope it's not the Hong Kong one (3rd from bottom)!!

    3. Joe, in your case, I KNOW it's not the Hong Kong one!!

  2. Ha! I don't think the law mandates where a helmet is to be worn.

  3. If your wife is able capable of killing you with her bare hands, I can understand why the husband might cheat.

    1. I'd be scared to marry her in the first place!!

  4. Thanks. Now I know where not to live. SC is one of them.

    1. It's OK to live there; just leave the state on Sundays!!

    2. Coming from a guy from South Carolina I have the perfect answer, don't go down to the court house on Sunday.

      I tried that once but Cindy beat me up before we got there ha ha.

  5. X would have been tossed in jail in Samoa. 30+ years of marriage and he couldn't remember my birthday.


  6. If I ever cheated it wouldn't matter if I were in Hong Kong or not.

  7. WOW! I need to warn The Pony not to make faces at dogs while he's attending the University of Oklahoma.

  8. That bike helmet cartoon made me laugh. Reminds me of the knee and elbow protectors my kids had and refused to wear.

  9. In Massachusetts no gorilla is allowed in the back seat of any car. (A friend from MA told me this one).
    And some of those aren't that bad. The autobahn one is for safety as there are no speed limits. It is only allowed to stop if there's something wrong with your car. And once you've stopped, everyone must get out and stand behind the safety barriers in case someone crashes in the parked car.

    1. Is there a law against gorillas in the front seat? Or driving?
