I Broke Dumb Laws In Front Of Police

  • Published on Mar 25, 2019
  • Britain is an old-fashioned, weird place, and its esoteric laws are among the most ridiculous things about the place. From it being illegal to handle a salmon suspiciously, to the threat of having your head chopped off for wearing a suit of armour in Parliament, VICE's Oobah Butler sees if anyone takes any of these laws seriously by trying to break as many as he can-in front of policemen.

    I am honestly lying awake at night, terrified of the prospect of what Ooba Butler will do next. This man is outrageous. I assume at some point there will be a youtube video of "Ooba Butler visiting his youtube comment critics with a film crew", completely disregarding any EU regulation about data protection.

    Question One: How would one go about holding a salmon "suspiciously"? Would putting a hand in its mouth and a finger in its butt at the same time be suspicious? Question Two: What happened in the past to make this a law?

    Gulliver the Gullible 23 hours ago

    misleading to say that the police did not act. The salmon wasn't really that suspicious. The song wasn't obscene enough. The man was only allowed in parliament after police learned that the armour is just plastic. He hasn't been caught gambling in a library. He was confronted by the police about he rug.Only the cop at No. 10 really failed his job.
