You know you live in a small town (Bemidji? Lake Woebegone?) when the local newspaper runs their front-page major news story topped by a full banner headline reading: "Chickens given 24 hours."

Not even Garrison Keillor could dream up something that special.

And even better (worse?), regular readers understood the headline perfectly!

Ahhh, only in America.
