Laws are created for the common good. It passes on different stages before it becomes a law that everyone must follow. If you commit something against the laws, you'll be fined or even go to prison. Most of these laws are understandable and logical. However, Daily Mail and Thought Catalog are some laws that are too unusual to consider as laws.

1. Prohibition of being fat

Last 2009, a law was passed in Japan giving a waistline limit for men and women beyond 40 years of age. Women should have a waistline not more than 35 ins and 31 ins for men.

2. Proxy Weddings are allowed

Proxy weddings, where a friend can substitute the groom or bride as a proxy in his wedding, is allowed in Montana. These proxy weddings are for those who work for the military.

3. Killing a cheating husband

If a wife catches her husband cheating, it is legal to kill him only when she kills him using her bare hands. This law was present in Hong Kong.

4. Changing of lightbulbs

In Victoria, Australia, not everyone can change the light bulbs even on their own homes. Only licensed electricians are allowed to change lightbulbs. If you do not follow this rule you will pay a fine.

5. Upside down stamp

In delivering your mail, if you place the monarch's head upside-down in a wrong way in your postage stamp, you may already be accused of treason. On a Thursday, farting beyond 6pm in a public place is considered illegal in Florida.

7. Smiling all the time

There is a law where you will pay a fine if you frown in Milan. You should always smile because of this law. However, hospital visits and funerals can be exempted.

8. No to confetti

Throwing of confetti and silly strings are not allowed and is illegal in Mobile, Alabama. These laws may seem illogical and crazy, but yes, they have existed at some point in time in some countries. Bet you didn't expect them. Find more crazy laws in this video:
