What are Singapore's craziest laws

Weird and funny laws in the US

The USA is colloquially known as the land of unlimited possibilities. However, you are also the land of limited opportunities for fun, which is why for me you are more of the land of limited impossibilities. I once tried to list some strange, funny and unbelievable laws in the USA the first time you read them, which SO actually still exist or have existed once. After that, pretty much nothing is surprising anymore. Some laws are no longer valid, but they have never been removed from the legal texts and are therefore still anchored there ...
