Weird Wills Gone in Louisiana
There used to be a lot of weird kinds of wills in Louisiana (my favorite was the mystic will). As of July 1, 1999, they are gone, replaced by the two kinds found in the rest of the nation, the signed and witnessed and notarized will found almost everywhere (although in most states, unlike Louisiana, a notary is optional), and the holographic will (called olographic, in Louisiana, just to retain some residual weirdness).
