BANNED: FINE FOOD AND FUN
WHEN CHICAGO'S BAN ON THE SALE OF FOIE GRAS(goose liver) came into force last week,liver lovers revolted. One pizzeria began serving pies topped with the fatty delicacy to protest a law that even Mayor Ricahrd Daley called silly. Chicago isn't the only place with rules drafted by the Ministry of Loopy Laws.
Here are four others.


NO BAD HABITS
If you're in Alabama, don't dress up as a nun, priest or rabbi for Halloween. Impersonating "a minister of any religion" is punishable by fine or jail.


NO BIKE BAGGAGE
If you're biking in Palm Bay, Fla., you'd better go it alone. City laws says bikers may not drag anything behind them, including a "sled, person on roller skates, wagon or toy vehicle".


NO LAPSES OF STYLE
Fashion police alert! Check the mirror before going out in Carmel, N.Y. A decades-old ordinance prohibits men from donning a mismatched jacket-and-pants combo.


NO PLAYING IN THE STREET
Hopscotch in front of the house? Street hockey? Not in Chico, Calif. "Baseball or any other game" is banned from any "sidewalk, lane or alley".
