Small town in Southern Illinois. On the news once for a plane crash-landing in the Dollar General parking lot. Crappy football team that hasn't won a game since the '90s. Only good thing to come out of Sparta, IL is the World Shooting and Recreation Complex, where all the local hillbilles go to shoot at stuff legally.
"Hey bro, are we goin up to Sparta, Illinois?"
"Hell no, dude! Are you crazy?!"
