We have no idea who or what catapulted this incredible hashtag into the Twittersphere, but we are so here for it. Over the last few days, Twitter has blown up with #LittleKnownCanadianLaws - which are the furthest thing from real laws, and more like hilarious parodies about Canada's many quirks.

Here are some of the funniest and most accurate #LittleKnownCanadianLaws, which we believe should definitely be made real.
