There are many countries in the world where there are crazy laws, though most of them are old and are not enforced but sometimes they are enforced. 50 Cent was arrested for swearing in Caribbean (St. Kitts prohibits the use of profanity in public). Here is a list of crazy laws around the world, and yes some are so weird that you might have to read them twice.

2. Minnesota has a strange law:
It is not allowed to hang female and male underpants on the same washing line. Yes, very weird.
3. People are not allowed to get divorced in Philippines and Vatican:
These are the only two countries in the world which does not let its citizen get a divorce. In Vatican, you’re not even allowed to think about one.
4 .Chewing gum:
Since 1992, Singapore government has a ban on importing chewing gum. Only nicotine gums are allowed, but only when you get them prescribed from a doctor. So think before buying a gum there, might just land you in some trouble.
