Crazy kiwi laws

Reading a post about silly laws brought to mind a couple of New Zealand ones I heard about..

Apparently in NZ it is illegal for maori women to breastfeed. This had something to do with tuberculosis susceptibility and was brought in in the late 1800s and never repealed.

Also, if you fail to milk your house cow at least once a day, you can be jailed for up to seven days. What I'd like to know is who is going to milk your cow while you're in jail..

Nuts, I say...
