Some Weird Laws, Ordinance and Proposed Bills here in Ph

1. The Anti-Selfie Bill

The Anti-Selfie Bill states that people may be penalized if they took a photo of another person without asking for their permission. This includes those who accidentally get captured in the photo’s background.

According to this bill, you could just be taking a couple of random shots with your friends on a vacation and accidentally include a random person on your photo, this random person can sue you. Now that’s one crazy case of photobombing.

2. Balato Bill

Grand lotto winners are required to give out 20% of their prize to the government as a “donation”. The donation will then be used for education and housing projects.

3. Anti Koreanovela Bill

Lito Atienza was probably thinking of a way to show more Filipino-made TV productions, rather than those made abroad. It was also probably a challenge for local productions to create shows that could be at par with those made abroad, rather than using the same storyline and plot-twist over and over again.

4. Anti-Hammer Bill

Thanks to the “Martilyo” gang, which is a group of robbers armed with guns and hammers, Mar Roxas (while still in senate) submitted this Bill for approval. First of all, unless you’re a carpenter or someone who works for construction, why would you bring around a hammer? Also, malls have hardware stores. One can simply buy a hammer there if they’re planning to wreak havoc. It’s a bad band-aid solution that’s not going to fix crime here in the country.

5. Anti-Singit Law

According to this, people who are guilty of cutting lines at the MRT, fastfood chains, malls, etc. will be fined or imprisoned.

Keeping peace and order really starts in an individual level. Obviously if there’s a line, you stand and wait for your turn (unless you’re a senior citizen, pregnant, and a PWDA). However, some people just can’t seem to wait and cut the line. Cutting the line is wrong, but it’s just a small concern that it can be settled verbally. There really is no need to fine or imprison the person for something as small as that.

6. The Half Rice Bill

This bill mandates restaurant owners to agree to sell rice in half-cup servings and those who violate it will be punished.

Not that there’s anything wrong with this bill. It’s just that many of us find it silly to have to make half-cup servings of rice mandatory in restaurants. We all know that we’re a rice eating country. In fact we eat an average of two and a half cups of rice per day. When we eat out, we usually never take leftover rice home. Not to mention that we’ve been having problems with the amount of rice our own farmers produce. The Bill most likely sprung out as a way to save rice.

7. Anti-Comedy Bar Jokes Ordinance

This is a proposal to form a regulatory board to observe to make sure that Comedy Bars in Quezon City will be free from extremely insulting jokes against customers.

So how exactly do you regulate humor? Stand up comedians are often time spontaneous when delivering their skits and jokes. You’re also in a comedy bar, it’s part of their culture to make fun of people so expect to be picked on and become the butt of the joke.

8. Anti-Dildo Bill

This Bill prohibits the distribution and sales of six toys in the Philippines.

Well, anything that relates to six here in the country is considered a taboo. However, people have become more open when it comes to concerns of six, especially reproductive health. The use of contraceptives such as condoms and pills is being accepted by the younger generation. six education is also being considered as a topic to be covered in school. So, going back to the Anti-Dildo Bill, isn’t it a bit too silly and shallow to have a Bill like this knowing that we’re becoming progressive and open when it comes to the topic of six and reproduction?

These are just some of the ridiculous bills passed by the many law makers in the country.  Some of these bills makes us ask ourselves if we voted for the right people to run the country. What other silly bills in the Philippines that you know of? Leave your comments below and don’t forget to share this article.

i think someone also has to proposed a bill called "ban on stupid bills law"... penalty for violating the law would be the showing of your face in all the newpapers, tv stations and internet forums... i think that will stop all this nonsense laws...
