Perambulating perils

You're in a strange place. People are speaking a strange language. Sometimes they look at you strangely. Then a strange thing happens.

You get arrested.

Craig McQueen has rounded up many ways that tourists can run afoul of the law. A small sampling from Craig:
In Switzerland, a man may not relieve himself while standing up after 10 pm.

In Liverpool, it is illegal for a woman to be topless in public, except as a clerk in a tropical fish store.

In New York, having sex with a porcupine is illegal.

In Italy a man may be arrested for wearing a skirt.

In London, commuters on the tube can be fined £ 2 for not queuing.

In Thailand, it's illegal to drive without wearing a shirt.

In the UK, it is illegal to enter the Houses of Parliament wearing a suit of armour.
Enjoy the sights, but keep your lawyer on speed dial.
