I wrote a blog post yesterday called The Unfortunate Case of Frog Duck-Butt, talking about this colorful character on the Galleria Carousel:
And it got me thinking: there are so many quirks, oddities, and unusual things in our state.
For instance: Did you know that there are at least two statues of Jesus encased in glass boxes in our state? I blogged about the one in Birmingham last year, and then my good bloggy friend Lianne (who had been reading my blog for a while but had never read my Jesus in a Box post) ran across one near Tuscaloosa. She obviously saw this a bloggable item, and for pre-blog research, she googled the term "Jesus in a Box" and, of the whole entire world wide web, I was her first search result.
Seriously. What ARE the chances??
So, that being said, surely most of you have blogged about at least one odd item in our state at some point.
So, think hard - I KNOW you've got to have an Alabama quirk post in your archives somewhere. And if you don't, well, get to work! Write one about your favorite local quirk! Or, if you're feeling lazy, feel free to comment it in on this post.
Link your post in below. Or, if Mister Linky is still having issues and a link box doesn't show up below this line (he's been quite infirm of late - be sure to send him a "Get Well Soon" card), leave the link to your post in the comments.
