Did you know that in New Mexico it's perfectly legal to have sex in your car, on your lunch break, provided the curtains are closed? Or that in Chester it's still permissible to shoot a Welshman (with a crossbow), so long as it happens within the city walls and after midnight?

What about the one about gold fish being able to ride the buses of Seattle in their bowls - so long as they stay absolutely still? We're well into the 21st century, yet still there remain, in our dusty legal books, a string of downright daft laws, injunctions, directives and restraints to make you giggle, scratch your head or - if you're a Welshman visiting Chester - fear for your life.

Flick through the pages of The Law is an Ass to stay out of trouble, brush up on your legal knowledge, and laugh out loud along the way.
