This week we pull back to focus on the state of Kentucky. Here are the questions:
- What is the official state beverage of Kentucky?
- In the state of Kentucky, it’s illegal to marry the same person how many times?
- What Kentucky city is built inside an ancient meteorite crater?
And here are the answers:
- Milk—Yes, we know. You were expecting bourbon since 95% of all it is produced in Kentucky. But no, in 2005, a bill passed solidifying milk as the state’s official beverage because, according to the bill, “milk production and the manufacture of dairy products are major contributors to the economic well-being of Kentucky agriculture.” But bourbon wasn’t going to take this lying down. In 2017, a change.org petition was presented as an advocate for milk to be deposed and replaced by bourbon. The petition had 2.685 supporters but has since closed.
- In the state of Kentucky, it’s illegal to remarry the same person more four times. Honestly, we’re glad a law stepped in to put an end to that foolishness. If you’ve married the same person three times, you need someone to make better decisions for you.
- Middleboro—The site of the small town, located in the southeastern corner of our state, was created in an interesting way. It’s estimated that about 300 million years ago, a meteorite struck this area of the earth, leaving behind a sizable crater. The town, which was founded during the late 1800s, offers access to overlooks and hiking trails. Talk about making lemonade out of a lemon!
Thanks for playing!
