While attending a trivia night last night there was a question: It is illegal to cross an IOWA state line wearing whichone of the following things on your head. A) A potato B) an ear of corn C) A duck D) a Muskrat



The answer was C) A duck.





Could someone from Iowa please explain this to me. I am very confused. It should be illegal to cross any state line with any of these things on your head. Actually, wearing any of these things on your head should get you locked up at a nuthouse.



P.S. Our guess was a Muskrat.

Maybe it has something to do with the college team mascot being a duck.Just a guess and probably a poor one at that.

I can't find anything on the website about wearing a duck on your head. I have now applied for a permit to sell narcotics though, and I've told all my one-armed piano playing friends that they have to play for free in Iowa.

What I don't understand is how to keep a duck on your head.... Especially when riding a motorcycle...... ducks aren't DOT approved, are they?
