Have you ever heard the phrase "This is a free country!" or "This is the best country in the world!". Doesn't it sound rather American to you?
Now, the US is a great country - great as in big and I'm sure it's great in other ways too. I've never been there so I couldn't really say. But I do know it can be a strange country. And strange countries have strange laws.
I thought we'd dip into the laws of some of the states which makes up the US of A. Let's start with the Carolinas - they've always seemed like such cute states.
Starting with South Carolina..
It is illegal to give or receive oral sex in South Carolina.
*not a state I plan on moving to*
By law, if a man promises to marry an unmarried woman, the marriage must take place.
It is considered an offense to get a tattoo.
It is perfectly legal to beat your wife on the court house steps on Sundays.
and my favourite...
Every adult male must bring a rifle to church on Sunday in order to ward off Indian attacks.
Continuing with North Carolina..
The mere possession of a lottery ticket is illegal in North Carolina and may result in a $2,000 fine.
It's against the law to sing off key.
While having sex, you must stay in the missionary position and have the shades pulled.
All couples staying overnight in a hotel must have a room with double beds that are at least two feet apart.
*doesn't say you can't sleep in the same bed*
If a man and a woman who aren't married go to a hotel/motel and register themselves as married then, according to state law, they are legally married.
*how convinient, saves you all that hassle with a wedding dress and all... but they should write warning signs...*
and of course, yet again,
Oral sex is considered a crime against nature.
...someone very sexually frustrated must have made these laws...
