Kansas (kænzəs) is an obscure Latin word meaning "a large square in the middle of any political map of the United States." The official motto of Kansas is Ad astra per aspera ("To the stars through corn") but more recently has become "In God we blindly trust." Kansas currently has no attractions unless you like hay, cows, wheat, going to church 7 days a week, and beating up gay guys a baseball bat.

The Big Hay Stack on the outskirts of Tonganoxie was piled when an edgy farmer added a few extra chords of hay to a moderately sized stack. Being Kansas's first attraction, tourists flocked there for exactly 2 hours, then realized that there is nothing else around and left with their minivans in horror. The farmer stuck a pitchfork in the hay on August 4, 2005.
In Lebanon, Kansas, there is a monument marking the exact center of the contiguous U.S.A.. Lebanon, Kansas is not exciting but unfortunately merely named after a more exciting place that deserves your vacation money. Besides, no airlines carry to Kansas. MCI is gathering dust.
