Australian law debars a very specific item of clothing
Many age old laws are there to shelter you – such as criminal legislation.
However, there are some left all about from the olden days that are downright ridiculous.
One of the silliest is from Victoria, Australia – where residents are banned from wearing hot pink shorts.
The ban does not apply to the sum total week, only the period after midday on a Sunday.
This cheaps, in theory, that from Monday to Saturday you have no problem at all parading your hot pink shorts.
Without a doubt this is good news for anyone attending a Seventies revival festivity.
However, this isn’t the only crazy Australian law.
In fact, the country is famed for preparing some of the most weird and wonderful laws in the world.

Pink shorts: Not to be spent after midday on a Sunday
There is a law against making rain clouds – but barely if you are unqualified
Under Sect 13 of the Vagrancy Act 1966, alone who affirms they can tell fortunes – or practises any other kind of witchcraft – can be rest guilty of an offence.
There is also a law against making rain clouds – but at worst if you are unqualified.
Under the Rain Making Control Act of 1967, people sine qua non have a qualification if they are to “carry out rain making operations”.
Truly what this qualification act is is anyone’s guess.
Fortune striking: This is also banned by Australian law
There is also a baffling law restraining being in a house with thieves.
Under the Vagrancy Act of 1966, the forfeit for being near or inside a house used by thieves is one year of confinement.
It is unclear if this applies to situations when your own house is being burgled.
When all is said, locals claim you can be charged with indecent exposure on Brighton Coast on Melbourne if your swimsuit doesn’t cover your body from neck to knee.
