Strange French Laws

Between the hours of 8AM and 8PM, 70% of music played a radio station must be by French artists.

It is illegal to die unless a cemetary plot has first been bought.

It is illegal to kiss on railways. 

It is illegal to shoot Englishmen as they cross the English Channel towards France - unless they are sailing in a 'boat of war'.

It is illegal for a woman to wear pants in France.

No pig may be called Napoleon.

In Paris, any man carrying onions must be given right of way in the streets.

In Paris, criminals can apply for sanctuary in Notre Dame Cathedral and must be 'fed and watered' for up to six weeks.
Does this right of sanctuary also apply to the University of Notre Dame?
