Thou shalt not suffer a witch to ride a broomstick above 150 meters.

It seems the lawmakers in Swaziland are tackling the big issues about as well as Republicans in Texas.  Should you ever visit Swaziland, be careful how high you ride your broomstick.

“A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the [150-metre] limit,” Civil Aviation Authority marketing and corporate affairs director Sabelo Dlamini told the newspaper.

No penalties exist for witches flying below 150 metres.

The report said it was hard to say how serious he was, but witchcraft isn’t a joking matter in Swaziland, where the people believe in it.

Just another rule for Harry Potter to break.

I just…wtf?  Can someone give me directions back to the 21st century?  I think I’ve gotten lost…
