I remember seeing a picture a while ago, that explained of an old English law about ducks.

Something about it being legal a certain day a year to walk around London with ducks, or something like that.

I can't remember it well, and google has bought me to nothing.

Can someone help me please?

None of these old laws actually exist, they're all vetoed by later laws.

In York, you're legally allowed to shoot a Scot from the city walls with a bow and arrow. Except on Sundays.

Of course, this also counts as attempted murder and is thus illegal.

But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Wouldn't it be a good thing if she did? She would be a protected creature.

Not even the one about being allowed to shoot Welshmen with a bow and arrow within the city walls of York?

There's this one day where overweight, bearded men dressed in red and white are allowed to climb down chimneys.

That's why my family and I had to leave our community. The law isn't present everywhere.

Well, I found some other weird laws. According to some law in Minnesota,
A person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head.


Also in Minnesota,
It is illegal to sleep naked.
Oral sex is prohibited.

There's more here , but don't read the one about the cats. It'll just make you sad.

I know the thing you're talking about, TS. I think I remember watching a video of someone doing it.

(found it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YctCGVgyi9U)

Also for more infor on outdated laws: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4527223.stm

Apparently there is a team of people who go through all the old laws etc and find the outdated ones. These are then put into "Repeal Bills" which are passed every few years.
So none of these laws will still be true.

I've broken both of those Minnesota laws. Well not the duck one, but sleeping naked and getting head. Had some good times living in Minneapolis.
