Only In Illinois

In this series, I bring to you the weirdness of Illinois. This is kind of what Chuck does, but restricted to the good ol' state of Illinois. For my first offering, I present the following...

The town of Joliet likes its rodeo. So much that it wants to bring it back NO MATTER WHAT. The catch? A little agency known as the Environmental Protection Agency, who raised a stink when they observed Joliet failed to get the necessary permits for last year's rodeo, at the LANDFILL. The EPA is concerned about damage to the landfill inflicted last year, such as damaging the clay "cap" that seals in all things oozing and disgusting. But once those permits get signed, the rodeo is ON! On I tell you! Joliet Herald News

Isn't Joliet a landfill to begin with? No seriously, I think it is built on top of a giant landfill of like fifty years of trash from Chicago.
