Belvidere, NE-The small southern Nebraska town of Belvidere, known locally for its $3 Dollar Meatloaf, secret underground missile silos, and Lucky the 5-legged cow, also has some zany old laws still on the books:
"Law 137.9a: There shall be no picking of turnips after Founder's Day until the first full moon of the new year. Violaters of this law shall be buried unto their waist for a sixth night."
"I'm a big fan of Law 137.9a," Mayor Spooner Jenkins explained. "It's still very much applicable to today's modern Belvidere. Seriously, who hasn't been frustrated with late season turnip pickers?"
"Ordinance 214.G1: The breeding of irregular sheep is henceforth to be punishable by hanging. Spontaneously occuring irregular sheep are to be slaughtered and buried with haste."
"We've had 3 executions already this month," Jenkins revealed. "It's good for moral to see what can happen if you break the law around here."
