“Aceh village tells coffee shops to cut Wi-Fi so kids don’t get distracted from reading Quran,” Coconuts Jakarta, November 23, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A village in the Indonesian province of Aceh — the only region in Indonesia with special autonomy to enact religious bylaws — is saving its children from the worldly distractions that are coffee and Wi-Fi.

As reported by Kompas, officials at Curee Baroh village in the Bireuën regency recently issued a circular to coffee shops in the area instructing them to stop providing Wi-Fi to customers. The ban has been in effect since November 13.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
