Weird Pearls... Weird Laws

Ok.. so I made this funky necklace out of these really weird shaped freshwater pearls and I was trolling the internet trying to find out how these odd-shaped pearls are formed. I searched "weird pearls" and I ended up finding this site about Weird Laws... some of them are so funny I just had to share!
First... here is my "Weird Pearl" necklace which will be up for sale on my Etsy site soon....








Now.. since I live in Ohio, these laws are for Ohio and some funny ones from particular cities in Ohio...
