Paris Hilton probably wouldn't have much fun in Beijing right now

If you're getting ready to go out tonight and you're having a tough time deciding what to wear, just be glad you don't live in Beijing right now.

That's because residents in the Olympic city have been given 36 page booklets on different do's and don'ts leading up to the Games.

As Jessica Salter of the Telegraph points out, the Chinese are doing their best to get direct points across.

While some style recommendations do not need explanations - fat people should avoid horizontal stripes - other tips have their reasoning spelt out: "Clothes should not be too small, otherwise this makes people feel you are unreliable"

Other interesting/hilarious notes from the story ...

---men can't wear black shoes with white socks

---women should not wear leather skirts

---residents need to avoid embarrassing public displays of affection

---no fighting over the bill at dinner

---women should not wear more than three colors in an outfit (that dress Paris has on in the picture above would be a definite no no)

---men are advised against wearing pajamas in public

---a woman's age should determine how long her skirt is

This sounds like a list that a kid might get from his or her parents before they go off to college.

I think one of my favorites has to be that taxi cab drivers must cut down on garlic to avoid bad breath.

If they actually tried to enforce these laws in New York City, I'm not sure there would be anybody left on the streets ... everybody would be in jail.
