Do banjos count?

Kentucky law still requires elected officials, in 2009, to swear that they haven't challenged anyone to a duel before they can take office. The state constitution says so.

I suppose I should take some small comfort in the knowledge that Alabama's constitution isn't the only one plagued by antiquated, embarrassing, downright weird provisions. But I also bet the Kentucky charter doesn't have near as much to say about dead farm animals. And let's not even mention bingo.
