Weird laws in England

Weird laws in England, Laws are supposed to be rooted in logic and yet some of the strangest seem to have been written without a drop of it. Who gets to write some of these bizarre laws and the stories behind them must be absolutely fascinating. Did you know that it’s illegal to whistle underwater in Vermont? I wonder how anyone gets caught and I’m especially curious as to what the punishment is…
