And the two-butted lamb at the Jackson County Historical Society in Maquoketa definitely falls under the latter category. It is literally a stuffed lamb with not one but deux derrieres. Iowa actually has an island—Sabula—which has 576 inhabitants and is a popular summer beach destination for Chicagoans.
