From the pen of a "Prairie Home Companion" writer comes this inspired collection of well-known and not-so-well-known Minnesota oddities. Read about places such as Basshenge in Birchdale and the Home of Swollen Big Toe; events such as the Eelpout Festival; and phenomenon such as the world's largest prairie chicken. Even longtime residents of the Twin Cities may be surprised to discover the No Wake Café, situated on a Mississippi barge, and to learn how Princess Kay of the Milky Way gets sculpted in butter. Don't miss the insightful commentary on the state's most illustrious curiosity--Governor Jesse Ventura.

Minnesota Curiosities is your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things this state has to offer. Humor writer Russ Ringsak and co-author Denise Remick have combed Minnesota for one-of-a-kind gems that make their home state truly unique.
You'll meet the Chainsaw Sisters, the St. Cloud Superman, and the High Priest of Voodoo, locally known as "Fabulous Bob."
You'll go in search of the elusive Lake Wobegon, celebrate your inner nerd at the Geek Prom, and fish for one of the world's ugliest creatures at the Eelpout Festival.
You'll tour the Spam Museum, marvel at the world's only double-decker outhouse, and watch as mass quantities of slimy, smelly fish are consumed at the annual Lutefisk Eating Contest.
St. Paul, Minnesota, resident Russ Ringsak has been with PRI's "A Prairie Home Companion" since 1974. When he's not backstage writing up Garrison Keillor's rundown, he can be found behind the wheel of the 48-foot semi-trailer hauling the radio show's equipment between venues. Denise Remick is a freelance researcher and production artist.
