They Take Formality Seriously in Frankenstein, Missouri ... aka Young Frankenstein, Missouri

In 1999 the town of Frankenstein, Missouri was invaded by 25 skydiving Peter Boyle-style Frankenstein monsters in honor of the 25th anniversary of Mel Brooks' movie, Young Frankenstein.  

As they leaped from the plane they yelled, "Putting on the Ritz" and landed in the Frankenstein Community Ball Field.  

The monsters handed out Young Frankenstein DVDs and the "mayor"  re-dubbed the town Young Frankenstein.

Wasilla, Alaska jumped on this particular bandwagon (well, they formed a mob of angry villagers with torches, rakes and axes) ...
