Insanely Funny Laws around the world

Rajib Singha
Generally, law is considered as a serious affair, and mostly it is. But there are some weirdly funny laws,which make no sense. For instance: In France, it is illegal to marry a dead person. (Why would someone marry a dead person anyway, unless one is lunatic, maniac or sick!)
Funny laws or dumb laws are attributed as trivial, useless, or unnecessary. Most of these laws act against behavior or actions which are ordinary and/or mean no harm. If we go by the books, then dumb laws do exist. But most of them are an exaggeration of real laws or are based on concepts that are unrealistic.
