London Hackney Carriages (taxis/cabs) must carry a bale of hay and a sack of oats.

It is illegal to be drunk on Licensed Premises (in a pub or bar).

Any person found breaking a boiled egg at the sharp end will be sentenced to 24 hours in the village stocks (enacted by Edward VI).

You have to remember however that most of these laws are Common Laws. Meaning they arent written down, so they dont really have any significance lol. But some are quite funny. I once read one where it was illegal to urinate on the back left wheel of a car or something like that lol

What you are thinking of is the one that it states it IS LEGAL for a driver to urinate in public IF its against the rear wheel and his left hand is on the vehicle whilst doing so.

We have an archaic (but still valid) local bylaw that states its illegal to make love in a church doorway during the hours of darkness. So presumably its okay to do so during the daytime? Now thats my sorta law!
