2. Creede: There Is No Night in Creede
Here meek and mild-eyed burros
"On mineral mountains feed
It's day all day in the daytime
And there is no night in Creede"
That'd be worth an exclamation point if Brush hadn't already used them all.
1. Fruita: Home of Mike the Headless Chicken
Fruita has an entire website devoted to Mike the Headless Chicken, who lived for eighteen months in the 1940s after literally losing his noggin. There's also an annual festival in his name, with this year's version taking place May 18-19. It's head and shoulders (or maybe just shoulders) above the rest. And as a bonus, the website notes that Mike is running for president under the slogan, "A No-Brainer."
Sounds like he's perfectly qualified.
