Is it lawful to fight a duel in Uruguay?
Answer: yes, so long as each participant is a registered blood donor.
Go on, Google it. The story is all around. It sounds almost too good to be true.
Of course, it almost certainly is to good to be true. A fairly strenuous search located not a single report that offered anything remotely like a source. No statute. No lawbook. Not even, in my inquiry, so much as a little snippet of Spanish.
When you stop about it, the story almost has to be false. It is just too neat and charming, too much suited to the intertubes. A hint of exoticism, weirdly funny, with a soupçon of the macabre.
Now, if it turns out that it really is true. Or perhaps I was thinking of Paraguay.
