Spain - The Iberian Peninsula's premier brain-dead hotspot has voted to end centuries-old Spanish practices rumored to have inspired various piss artists such as Goya, Picasso and Hemingway.
A ban imposed by the region's Constitutional Court sees centuries of garbage swept away in a move branded by some as a cruel attack on diabolical liberties.
These gave birth in the 15th century to the notorious closed shop of the Spanish Inquisition which swept away decades of collective bargaining by the country's torturers, eavesdroppers and masters of innuendo.
Now the country's stronghold on the election of the Grand Inquisitor has crumbled as Catatonia follows the Canary Juice Islands in outlawing dubious interrogation practices that have sheltered pervy old Nazis hiding their swastika tattoos under flowing liturgical vestments.
"A crack developed in their armor plating," local ban proponent Manuel Chorizo said today, "a small enough crack admittedly but leading to some of the biggest arseholes in the Wholly Roman Empire."
General Franco's descendants are apoplectic.
