Default Most unusual laws

Just found this delight (I'll try to do the link properly this time!) BBC link

As a result of the news, I've noticed the following:

* Politicians seemed unusually "with it" today in the house.
* Large number of boys have started collecting a rare fish that can only be bought in Liverpool.
* The sell-by date stamped on boxes of mince pies is 23 Dec. The consume-by date is 24th.
* Thousands of front doors in Scotland have jammed shut because of wet weather.
* The Police Officers Federation are holding a strike ballot, claiming that helmets attract unwanted attention to their wearers. (I was going to say "to their members" but thought better of it...)
* Scots flee York in droves.
* The Indonesian government issue barbed wire gloves to all boys on their 14th birthday. They quickly revise that to their 12th.
* Mirror sales have... No, don't even go there!
* The divorce rate in Switzerland rockets; queues of angry women seen at launderettes, carrying duvets.
* New craze in Florida: getting married by parachute. (Actually, by a priest, but you follow my drift.)

I think that's quite enough of that!
