Japanese lawmakers can jail a citizen whose waistline goes beyond 35.4 inches.

World's strangest laws, world's most bizarre, most odd laws ever made, craziest law in the world, ludicrous lawmakers, funny laws

A new law in Japan can jail people when their waistline went above 33.5 inches for males and 35.4 inches for females. Although the intent was good – aiming for a fitter and healthier race, its passing into a law is still bizarre.

In accordance to that, I have listed a few of world’s laws that are strangely appearing:

You don’t die in the House of Parliament in England. Sorry, it’s the law.

If you find a whale on the British coast, good for you! But you only get to keep the body. The Royal Prerogative 1324 gives rights to the royal family – a dead whale’s head belongs to the King while the tail for the Queen!

In Denmark, you don’t wait to be an ex-prisoner, for it is legal to escape. It is however illegal to get caught. The penalty: you finish your term in prison.

Which law is the most ridiculous?
