The past is a strange, confusing place, and it's a good thing we don't go there anymore.
With the possible exception of the history of fashion, nowhere is the confusing strangeness of our country better reflected than in our laws.

Below we have ten laws, and all you have to do is identify whether they're real or fake. Some you'll have heard of, some we've made up, and some are so bizarre that you won't have a clue either way.
