Ireland sweeps goofy laws from the books

Just in time for St. Paddy's Day, Ireland is engaging in a bit of legal housekeeping that will do away with such legal gems as the Tippling Act of 1735 and the "ordeal of water" (which involves being tied to a millstone and chucked into a lake).

Yes, soon it will be legal to burn witches or add sheep crap to your coffee in the Emerald Isle, as the Irish government eliminates more than 2,300 ridiculous laws dating back to 1100 A.D.

Be sure to raise a green beer to Ireland's legal downsizing this Friday night.
