Great News For the Irish!

And just in time for St. Patrick' s Day!

Irish citizens are now allowed to dilute their coffee with sheep dung, although witch burings are apparently still off the old Starbucks' menu.

Sadly, the Irish are also doing away with a law dating from 1285 — while my relatives were still painting themselves blue, I suppose, and dancing around bonfires — that set up a special corp of watchmen to arrest suspicious strangers. Well, that seems like a dandy solution to our leaky borders problem!

Finally, Irish Jews can now wear chainmail and leather armor.

And not a moment too soon!
