We've got good news! We're not the only nation in the world to ban the most ridiculous, and the most innocuous of things. There are many countries in the world with extremely stupid laws.

We'd love to hear the stories behind these before they got implemented. Especially the story behind number 17. Read on! 

1. A married woman is not allowed to have more than one glass of wine in La Paz, Bolivia.

Does it make sense: Does marriage, and drinking wine make sense? Nope.

 

2. Chewing gum in Singapore is illegal.

Does it make sense: Well, it does actually. Think about it from a cleanliness point of view. If you don't chew, what will you spit?

3. No sex on the steps of a church at night in Birmingham, Alabama.

Does it make sense: Before answering that, we'd like to know approximately how many times the priests caught couples having sex before putting their foot down and banning sex in front of the church. At night only. Because apparently it's all good during the day.
