Fun Facts: 8 Totally Absurd Laws from Around the World!

Every LAND is governed by a different set of RULES ! Some are made for larger public interest and therefore understand-able; however there are some funny but real laws that will totally blow up your mind! Atleast, I couldn’t think of a rationale behind some of them.

Here, lets take a look:
