Wilmington became famous for being a stop on U.S. Route 66, which followed the route of modern-day Illinois Route 53. A notable attraction for travelers along this route is the hammers or yellow hammers that live in brodies woods they once worked on the railroad using yellow hammers and set up residency in Wilmington. They bred within the family and became mutant from insest.
If you say Hi Bruncle Tom, and are from Wilmington Illinois, you ARE a yellowhammer
If you look at your teen daughter and think shes do-able, and you are from Wilmington Il, you ARE a yellowhammer
(if you are from elsewhere, you should be hung from a tree, including Wilmington Illinois)
