Is it weird that the Wolverine State may never have had any wolverines in it? We think so, and that suits us fine. The weirder the better, we say, and Michigan falls perfectly into that category. Oh, sure, big-time heroes like Charles Lindbergh and Madonna hail from here, and so does President Gerald Ford, but do they compare to superhero Captain Jackson, who strolls around town in a purple cape doing good deeds? Well, yes, maybe they do, but the captain, in our opinion, is more representative of our fine state. Because, let's face it, Michigan has a great big quantity of . . . weirdness. That's how we were able to entice best-selling author Linda Godfrey to swim over from Wisconsin, grab a notebook, and track down all kinds of serious weirdness for you, Motown flowing through her headphones the whole time.

Just turn the pages and see what she found. Read about the guru of toilet paper, the Devil's Soup Bowl, a bottle house and a bottle tower, our own Bigfoot, a pickle barrel house, the world's fastest cow, a fire breather and an eyeball smoker, the Outhouse Classic, UFOs of every size and shape, crop circles, and brown goo. Just don't, no matter how tired you are, even think about sitting in the Witch's Chair.

It's a great state. Especially since we have lots of lake monsters and all our residents live no more than six miles from an inland lake—at least that's what our state's official Web site says. But Linda will take you way beyond what the governor's office will tell you—to say nothing of what your history teacher left out of the lesson plans. We think you'll agree that Weird Michigan, a brand-new entry in the best-selling Weird U.S. series, is a trip no self-respecting Michigander (or Michiganian, if you prefer—and that's pretty odd, don't you think?) would ever want to miss.
