A Louisiana woman filed a temporary restraining order against the city in order to keep her Christmas lights up, but they weren’t just any Christmas lights.

The lights shaped like two hands flipping the middle finger apparently offended a few neighbors, and police told homeowner Sarah Childs to take them down. Since the lights aren’t illegal, authorities couldn’t stop Childs from keeping them up, and she flipped the lights back on, as well as ‘the bird’ to the city.
