  1. It is compulsory in Milan, Italy, to smile all the time!! 

Ah! So, this is your happy place and not CC!

It is a legal requirement to smile every time except in hospitals and funerals. This remains a law even if you are going through a sad breakup. All you have to do is smile and smile and smile.

This must work in India well, as, “Ab challan kaun bharega? Khush hi reh lete hai.”

So how did you like these weird laws?

On a bonus note: consider our own nation now when it comes to weird laws–or wrong definitions, maybe.

Under Section 294 of the Indian Penal Code, “Obscene acts and songs (…) to the annoyance of others” is illegal in India. You can be punished for up to 3 months or fined under the (pretty unclear) “obscene acts”. Basically, if the “obscene acts” are disturbing in the eyes of the “public” (rather than entertaining), then you can be “killed with shame,” either due to difference in ideas or the greed of that “public”.

But, hey, these weird laws are what makes the world go…rather eerie. Right?
