Recently recieved this list. The comments in ()'s were part of the email, someones attempt at humour.
quote:


In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with
animals, but the
animals must be female. Having sexual relations
with a male animal is punishable by death.
(Like THAT makes sense.)
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's
genitals, but is
prohibited from looking directly at them during the
examination. He may
only see their reflection in a mirror.

(Do they look different reversed?)
~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a
corpse. This also
applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the
deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood
at all times.

A brick??)
*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is
decapitation.

(Much worse than "going blind!")
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel
the countryside and
deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege
of having sex for the
first time...Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly
forbidden for virgins
to marry.

(Let's just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world
that even comes close to this?)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous
husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband's lover, on
the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.

(Ah! Justice!)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England -
but only in
tropical fish stores.

(But of course!)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her
husband, and the
first time this happens, her mother must be in the room
to witness the act.

(Makes one shudder at the thought.)

*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~**~*~*

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have
sex with a woman
and her daughter at the same time.

(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had
to pass this law?)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending
machines with one
exception: prophylactics may be dispensed from a
vending machine only "in
places where alcoholic beverages are sold for
consumption on the premises."

(Is this a great country or what? Not as great as
Guam!)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an
hour.

(Who volunteers for this stuff?)

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex
for pleasure.

(Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.

Hummm....I won't touch THAT one!)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30
times its own
weight, and always falls over on its right side when
intoxicated.

(From drinking little bottles of...? -- did the govt.
pay for this
research??)
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Butterflies taste with their feet.

(Ah, geez)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that.)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Starfish don't have brains.

(I know some people like that too)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

And, the best for last.....Turtles can breathe through
their butts.

(Do you think they have bad breath?).


I suspect that some of them have been delt with before (I haven't really started looking yet).

Cheers Al

I have to question this, as someone pointed out to me that nearly all animals have sex for pleasure. They don't do it because it makes offspring. They don't know from reproduction. They do it because it feels good, i.e. is pleasurable.

So, there may be a valid point in this tired tidbit of trivia, but it needs better wording.

Should we write the governments of the nations/states/etc. mentioned above about these supposed laws and ask them if they're tru? It would be one of the few ways of knowing for sure...

I think the original post is correct if the sentence is "The strongest muscle in the body, in relation to it's size, is the tongue." Otherwise I'd guess the strongest would be the muscle that closes the jaw.

I hear ya - my male dog just tried to hump my neighbor's male cat last week. I think he's a very confused pup. Anyway ... this explains the dolphin thing:
