What's Up With That?

My favorite radio show is broadcast in another state. I download it to my Ipod and listen to it when I am commuting back and forth to work, on my school, or anytime I have a few spare minutes. They called out a list of old or unusual laws that are still on the books. I thought I would share them with everyone:

As mentioned in my last blog, it is illegal to drive blindfolded in Alabama.

In Kentucky, if you have a concealed weapons permit, it is still illegal to carry a weapon over six feet long.

In London it is illegal to carry dogs with rabies or corpses in a cab.

In France it's illegal to name your pig Napoleon.

In London it is illegal to flag down a taxi if you have the plague.

In some country that I can't pronounce the name of, it is illegal for a doctor to look at a woman's private parts. He must look in a mirror and not directly at it.

Doesn't it make you proud to live in the U.S. of A.?

When my husband visited Pakistan for work, he learned that many of their doctors were women because it was illegal for a man to view the private parts of another man's wife (or any woman to whom he wasn't married, I assume). Therefore, they needed many women to go into medicine to deliver babies and care for women.

I figured it was probably a middle eastern country.
