today i learned – sun 30th apr 2017

tonight, we’re going all out weird and wonderful as we look at some of the strange laws that exist around the world πŸ˜‚.

originally, this blog post was going to be about just one italian law that i heard about a while ago but never actually investigated. after doing some research, however, it turned out that my law was actually really short and there are a couple of rather mental laws out there πŸ™ˆ.

#tdil that in milan, it is illegal to not smile whilst out in public πŸ™‚

i kid you not, that is legit a law in milan. if you’re out in public, you have to smile at all times. now, i’m all for everyone always looking happy (i think london could do with some more smiles) but it’s a mad thing to have as an actual law!? what if you’re having a bad day ☹️ … just have to walk everywhere upside down i guess. 

wondering what the penalty is for being caught not smiling? well, if the rozzas see you, they can slam you with a $100 fine 😳 (i’ve no idea why i couldn’t find that not in dollars anywhere πŸ€”). 

it’s worth mentioning that there are exceptions to this law – if you’re visiting someone in hospital or attending a funeral, you don’t have to be smiling at all times πŸ‘πŸ» #goodtoknow. that said, if you’re just having a terrible day, you best be good at pretending 😬.

that’s all for that one! if i’m honest, it was longer than i expected. regardless, i feel like i need to make you aware of the next crazy law … just because it’s sheer ridiculousness made me lol muchly πŸ˜‚

here goes – in oklahoma, it is against the law to have a sleeping donkey in your bathtub after 7pm 😢 #whatislife … i’m just going to leave that there πŸ‘πŸ» … 

right! i’m off to eat choccy biscuits and drink decaf coffee in bed (obviously a good idea). if you’d like to read some more random ole laws then you can find one of my sources –>here<–

au revoir 😎 #tdil

(for once, i haven’t stolen an image from google 😱 … instead, i’ve stolen it from one of my friends πŸ˜‚. olly took it when we accidentally visited italy πŸ™ˆ)
