Think American laws are out of whack?

Then you might enjoy this list of daft UK laws.

Among them:

It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament;

If someone knocks on your door in Scotland and requires the use of your toilet, you are required to let them enter;

It is an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing the British king or queen's image upside-down.

Other ridiculous laws (foreign and domestic) are listed, including one from Vermont:

Women in Vermont must obtain written permission from their husbands to wear false teeth.

Is there a Maryland law on the books that you find absurd?
