As a native Idahoan, I'm embarrassed that my home state is mostly known nationally for its potatoes, terrible congressmen, and now, giant racist snowmen:

Kootenai County sheriff's deputies told Markus Eliseuson Wednesday that he could be charged with a crime because the 10-foot-tall snowman was holding what appeared to be a noose. Deputies were called by neighbors who were appalled by the pointy-headed snowman with two dark eyes.

Eliseuson, who routinely flies Aryan Nation flags outside his home, insisted there was "nothing wrong" with the racist snowman but was forced to dismantle it anyway. The article notes that Eliseuson also "passed out bullet casings at Halloween after he said he ran out of candy."

It's really a wonderful state, I swear.
