It's witchcraft I tell ya!

The English Parliament passed an act in 1770 decreeing that any woman who sought to betray one of His Majesty's subjects into marriage by "scents, paints, cosmetic washes, artificial teeth, false hair, Spanish wool (rouge), iron stays, high-heeled shoes, bolstered hips and like misdemeanors shall incur the penalty of the law in force against witchcraft and that marriage shall stand null and void."

  2. I've always liked Sinatra's sexy resignation to "Witchcraft." But searching for it on Youtube this afternoon I chanced on this clip of Frank & Elvis together proving that men do witchcraft too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmWc3XAhCWw
