RIGHTEOUS RULES AND LOONY LAWS.COME ON!
WE'RE EXPERIENCING A BIT OF A HEATWAVE AT THE MOMENT AND ONE PARTICULAR RECENT NEWS ARTICLE MADE ME RATHER HAPPY.
A group of teenage boys confounded the school rules of not being allowed to wear shorts by all turning up in skirts.
Slam dunk to the boys!!!
Things like this put a big smile on my face because I'm a bit of a rule breaker when it comes to utter nonsense and people in authority relying on them without sense or reason.
Latest update is that through media exposure of their incredibly unfair ruling, the school has decided to change the rule from next year!
WHY NEXT YEAR!?! THEY'RE STILL BEING IDIOTS!!!
It would have been sooooo much better to have just smiled, congratulated the boys on their imagination and ingenuity and immediately given them the thumbs up to wearing shorts.
Anyway, it got me thinking about other stupid rules which led me to discovering these lovely laws of utter lunacy.

If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.
Did someone once dream up an excuse for not buying a ticket by writing, "But I couldn't get one, there was an elephant tied to the meter and it trumpeted at me and I had to run away!"........So the person reading this will have thought, Phwrerrgghh, what nonsense, I'm going to double your fine for making up this ridiculous story........!??? But wait a minute, what if there are people with pet elephants parking them for free?......You can't be too careful, this could be a tidy little money spinner......."Maud! Make a note to bring elephants up at our next meeting".

RIGHT ROYAL RIGHTS
IF you're exercising your dog and some Royalty happen to stroll by with their pooches, head for the hills before your mutt sniffs any a romance in the air because a law enacted by George I states that: "The severest penaltys will be suffered by any commoner who doth permit his animal to have carnal knowledge of a pet of the Royal house."
AND LASTLY BUT VERY IMPORTANTLY, NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO DIE IN THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT.
(Thus far it has warded off all attempts for anyone to do this, but everyone is still eagerly awaiting the first corpses trial)
Fancy naming your child something unique? Well think again because you can only give your child a name that has been approved by the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs. If your name isn't on their list you have to apply to them to get special permission.
