In Arizona, it is illegal to have more than 2 dildos in your house--no joke. If you think that’s weird, just wait until you see some of the other laws on this list. Without doubt they will cause you to ponder—who thought of this law, and what occurrence(s) prompted it? I can almost understand why in California it’s illegal to ride a bike in a swimming pool… but I’m 100% puzzled why you can’t serve wine in teacups in Kansas.

Photographer Olivia Locher set on a mission to break 43 of the weirdest laws she could find throughout America. She documented each illegal instance in an awesome photo project appropriately titled, “I Fought the Law.”

1. In Oklahoma, it's illegal to have intercourse with a vehicle.

Oklahoma isn't too keen on 2 living people getting freaky either. For instance, if you're caught giving oral sex, you could receive one year in jail and up to $2,500 in fines.

2. Tricksters, beware! In Pennsylvania, it's illegal to tie a dollar bill to a string and pull it away when someone tries to grab it.

3. In Alabama, it’s illegal to carry an ice-cream cone in your back pocket.

Some old historical laws, like this one, start to make more sense when you learn the history behind them. First thought--why would anyone ever want to put an ice cream cone in their back pocket? Talk about messy! But this law wasn’t invented to stop people who love wearing wet and stained clothing. Instead, it was to prevent thieves from stealing horses—I can personally attest to the fact horses will follow anyone or anything with food.
