South Dakota Has the Biggest What?!?
So many things to see, so little vacation time. So make the most of it.
I found a list of the one big thing each state has that's bigger than any other state. Like in Illinois: it's the biggest rocking chair. And New York has the biggest butter sculpture.
South Dakota has the biggest collection of Swamp Thing memorabilia. And it’s right here in Sioux Falls.
For those of you not hip to pop culture, allow Wikipedia to explain exactly "what" a Swamp Thing is:
The Swamp Thing is a fictional character in the DC Universe. He is a humanoid/plant elemental creature, created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson. Swamp Thing has had several humanoid or monster incarnations in various different storylines.
The character also appeared on the big screen in 1982 in a movie starring Dick Durock (no, you haven't heard of him) and featuring Louis Jourdon (probably better known for Gigi) and Adrienne Barbeau and 1989 sequel, again featuring Durock, Jourdon and Heather Locklear. There was also a TV series that lasted 3 seasons (1990-1993).
Now, doesn't THAT just want to make you want to check it out? Yeah, that's what I thought.
If you’re on your way to Montana, good news. They have the largest testicle festival, they Testy Fest (no, we're not kidding).
