Hmmm. Food for thought.

But I *like* Welshmen!

Putative STRANGE CITY LAWS from the UK:

Chester

You can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside the city walls and after midnight.

Good to know. I don't like walking long distances and I'd hate to start early!

Hereford

You may not shoot a Welsh person on Sunday with a longbow in the Cathedral Close.

But that's where the only clear shots are! Oh, and can I use a pistol?

Liverpool

It is illegal for a woman to be topless in public except as a clerk in a tropical fish store.

I have a sudden hankering for tropical fish...

London

No cows may be driven down the roadway between 10 AM and 7 PM unless there is prior approval from the Commissioner of Police.

How do they handle the bars closing? A lot of guys are leaving with cows, even if they don't think so (yet)!

York

Excluding Sundays, it is perfectly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow.

Dang it! I really don't want to spend my Saturday's chasing them down. But I can always use a pick-me-up after Church!
