This absurd collection of captioned photos depicting silly laws being broken comes from local artist and photographer Olivia Locher, with the My Idea of Fun artist collective.
The series, called "I Fought the Law", has been getting passed around the Internet all week. FeatureShoot.com reported that Locher is working on new snapshots of ridiculous legislation from all 50 states, so there's plenty more to come.
In Alabama it's illegal to have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at all times.
In Hawaii coins are not allowed to be placed in one's ears.
In Connecticut pickles must bounce to officially be considered pickles.
In Delaware it is illegal to wear pants that are "form-fitting" around the waist.
In Wisconsin it's illegal to serve apple pie in public restaurants without cheese.
In Texas it is illegal for children to have unusual haircuts.
In California nobody is allowed to ride a bicycle in a swimming pool.

BILL EGGERT | Going home can sometimes be only walking distance
One of the most popular topics during my eight years of writing this column is the one of looking into the past of the Johnstown (and my areas of Moxham and Richland) of my childhood.
