Onion Futures Act

I'm not making this up:

This law is notable as the first and only ban on the trading of futures contracts of a specific commodity in United States history, and as a unique modern case with which to study the effects of the existence of an active futures market on commodity prices.

I'm sure a more skilled comedian could come up with a good joke about The Onion, or build on the famous Simpson's reference.
