Shelbyville Indiana: Hailed by all Indiana as the largest exporters of corn and incest in the entire state. Accurate to their town slogan: "XXXX XXXX XXXXXXX" which translated for the literate says: "Where EVERYONE is family," everyone, in fact, is family. Recent surveys showed that that 97% of all Shelbyvillians have slept either with their cousin or sibling out in a cornfield in the past 6 months.
Man: Hey lets go to Shelbyville and have sex under the corn.
Woman: Sorry, you are not my brother.
Man: Damn Shelbyvillians.
