3 odd laws from around the world

Today on the Buzz List we are looking at some odd laws from around the world. Teresa Strasser found some bizarre things that have been banned in other countries that have us scratching our heads.

3.  Chewing Gum in Singapore

It was banned in 1992 as a way to keep sidewalks clean and pristine. The law has since been relaxed, but you can still face a steep fine if you don't dispose of it properly supposedly in the range of $700.

2.  Scrabble in Romania

The game was banned here during the ‘80s. A former president quoted saying it was "overly intellectual" and a "subversive evil." Luckily now the ban has been lifted and the country has their very own Scrabble Federation.

1.  Mullets & Ponytails on Men in Iran

Back in 2010 in an effort to stop western haircuts, they banned those hairstyles plus spikey and long hair. First time violators are given a less desirable hair doo and repeat offenders will get stiff fines. They'll even shut down barber shops that are clipping western cuts, but maybe banning mullets and man buns is not such a bad thing.
