Most places have their quirks (in the South, people call this charm), and the smaller the town, the more “charm” one seems to stumble across without even trying.

Keep reading to soak up a bit of weirdness from these 18 people’s hometowns. It’s like it should be #towngoals instead, really. Also I wish they had included the names of their hometowns so we could visit.

#17. So it’s not a race so much as an IQ test?
#16. They have one of these in Missouri, and one day I will go, if only for the t-shirt.
#15. Seems like an odd passion, given the subject, but okay.
#14. Wrong. But I do love pecan pie.
#13. This might be the best one.
#12. This made me lol irl.
#11. A 60ft potato?
#10. Do you kill them, or…?
#9. Those dead people just flat out refused to move. Rude.
#8. It’s as good a mascot as any!
#7. This is definitely odd. But helpful?
#6. Does he smell the part? Or would that just make people cry? (ba-dum-ching)
#5. Did no one say this out loud in their head first?
#4. Who’s car? And doesn’t that like, muck up your lake? #somanyquestions
#3. Damn ungrateful toads.
#2. Disappointed it’s not a festival for hair which also would have been awesome.
