There are plenty of wild laws on the books all across the country, but in one eastern Oklahoma city, there was an ordinance specifically created to boost an already robust industry. While oil and gas were the main economic drivers in this Creek County community, agriculture played a big role, too. So big, in fact, that it was once known as the Peanut Capital of Oklahoma.

Officials in this city were such big peanut boosters that they created an ordinance requiring an in-the-shell peanut be served to a customer in a restaurant any time they were given a glass of water. The penalty for breaking this peculiar law? A fine up to $5.

Which Oklahoma city was once known as the Peanut Capital of Oklahoma?
