Weird News Italian Style

I stopped following mainstream news about 18 months ago because I simply go sick-and-tired of the same old stuff every day. Rape, murder and corruption began to depress me. These days the only news I follow is news of the weird. The crazy news stories really get my spirits up and I find myself laughing out loud quite often.

Here is an example of odd news that makes me smile:

Italy is awash in weird laws;

-Public displays of affection while in a car will fetch a fine of up to 500 euros ($745) in Eboli.

-A 50 euros fine for lying down in a park in the northern city of Vicenza to read a book.

-Building of sandcastles is forbidden on the Eraclea sea coast near Venice.

Those Italians sure are wacky!
