4. Stepping on currency is illegal in Thailand

It would be great if Venice could outlaw pigeons, and as it can’t do that, the law is made that no one shall feed the birds. This is an end to the tradition of pigeons landing on the tourists willing to exchange some avian bacteria.
6. Being at the Library Whilst Having Body Odor (Houston)
The Houston city council was not about to have this trend continue however, and has banned the fetid stink of BO in the town’s libraries. And lest you think you can walk your ripe, simmering funk into the bathroom and dip your ballsack in a library toilet to freshen up, think again. They’ve banned that too.
This may be a roundabout way to run off the homeless (who have a tendency to set up camp in places like public libraries, to get out of the rain) but you have to admire the pragmatic approach that says it doesn’t matter if you’re actually a vagrant, as long as you smell like one.

13. Ice Cream Truck Music (Stafford, New Jersey)
Stafford Township, New Jersey has had enough of your childish shit and isn’t going to take it any more. In 1998 the township council voted 4 to 2 to ban the disruptive and potentially deadly music played by ice cream trucks.
We can think of two possible reasons for this. One is the known fact that no one under the age of 30 can resist sprinting out into the street at the sound of a passing ice cream truck, which probably causes millions of injuries and deaths every year .

There’s just one drawback, she can only do it with her bare hands. That seems pretty tough to accomplish.
