Go ahead and stomp all the blackberry bushes you want, because it's no longer punishable by law in the great state of Michigan.

Governor Snyder signed an order repealing a handful of outdated laws yesterday, saying that they no longer applied in the 21st century.  Some of those laws included:

  • Cursing in front of a woman
  • Stomping blackberry bushes
  • Singing the National Anthem out of tune
  • Refusing to help fight a forest fire
  • Accepting a challenge to a duel

While we're all glad that we won't be put in jail for singing out of tune, this is probably the most unimportant news of the day.

Why doesn't Snyder do something about real outdated laws, like that dumb tax that shows up on our cell phone bills?  (I bet you thought I was going to say something about legalizing marijuana didn't you?)
