The law is the law

Apparently there is an old forgotten Danish law that nobody cared to remove, that says that if the Öresund sea freeze, and a Swede walks over to Denmark, Danes are allowed to hit him with sticks. The law doesn’t mention Norwegians, so they are free to visit.

Obviously the law if from back when Sweden and Denmark were constantly at war. :XD:

And Denmark and Sweden are friends now, so after getting this out of the way, Denmark invited Sweden for hot coco as well. :)

There's a similar law in England,where it's said that an Englishman is allowed to shoot a Welshman with a crossbow, as long as it's in a walled city (i.e. York) within the city walls. Now THAT'S a comic I'd like to see!

@Roar I just meant that they're all like "Ooh, the sea froze! How abnormal!" Well, at least Sweden. It IS a bit warmer there, but at least here the sea freezes properly like every winter... Except this one. This is the warmest winter there has been for a while... Then again, even if the sea does freeze, the icebreakers are going to break it anyway.

...but I guess it's rather abnormal for the sea to freeze over so well that you could walk from Norway to Denmark.

I'll just stop rambling because I don't know anything about anything and I'll just say something incredibly stupid. Probably have already. What if somebody just told me how it really is because I'm too lazy to look anything up?

@Bookworm13 It's because the swedish army was able to invade Denmark across the ice once, and since that was obviously a bad thing Denmark decided to make a law that permitted beating up ice-crossing swedes.

Seriously? The sea freezing over is somehow special?
Of course, whit all the ships 'n stuff there it won't freeze so easily, but... seriously?
