Friday Fun: Did you know? It's illegal to carry ice-cream... via @DefinitionHouse #wonderland #TGIF

Hello, Readerverse.

In Kentucky, it's illegal to carry an ice-cream cone in your back pocket.

Why, you might ask? Or better yet, why would anyone want to carry an ice-cream cone in their back pocket? 

Good question.

Back in the 1800s horse thievery was high. And thieves became quite creative in their efforts. They would put an ice-cream cone in their back pocket and lure the horse away. 

Then, if they happened to get caught, they could say that the horse merely followed them home.

Local authorities had to put a stop to this, so the law remains on the books to this day.

Modern day horse thievery...
