This week we pull back to focus on the state of Kentucky. Here are the questions:

  1. What is the official state beverage of Kentucky?
  2. In the state of Kentucky, it’s illegal to marry the same person how many times?
  3. What Kentucky city is built inside an ancient meteorite crater?

And here are the answers:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
