We are all guilty of getting up to a little mischief now and again, so thankfully I have put together a handy list of some of the most weird and wonderful laws in the UK, so you can stay out of mischief and have a laugh at the same time. Quite frankly I don't know why someone hasn't done it sooner.

Enjoy.



1. In London, it is illegal to flag down a taxi if you have the plague.
2. All men over the age of 14 must practice longbow for 2 hours each week.
3. Farting in front of the Queen can lead to a charge of treason.
4. It is illegal for women to eat chocolate on public transport.
5. You cannot handle Salmon under suspicious circumstances under the Salmon Act (1986).
6. It is very illegal to stand within 100 yards of the Queen without wearing socks.
7. A bed may not be hung out of the window.
8. It is in fact against the law for Bees in Ireland to trespass.
9. It is illegal to die within the houses of Parliament.
10. It is illegal to wrestle an untrained bull in public.



Many of these are now obsolete, but some are still current UK laws. Comment below if you know which one it is.
