Great Moments in Scottish Legal History

The Witchcraft Act of 1735 contained a clause preventing the consumption of pork and pastry comestibles on Halloween although these days sausage rolls seem to a popular treat for children - the act was repealed in the 1950s.

Hell, I’m surprised this law isn’t on the books in Alabama, punishable by burning at the stake amidst a pile of banned books like "Heather Has Two Mommies" and "Catcher in The Rye."
