    I found this tidbit in the latest Reader's Digest (in an article on weird state laws).

    New Mexico

    Tied election?
    Bust out the playing cards. A statute in the New Mexico constitution says that any tied vote in a municipal election should be broken "by drawing an impartial lot" --- that is, a game of chance agreed upon by the candidates. In practice, elections have been settled by coin tosses, high-card draws, and, yes, even a hand of poker. James Farrington was reelected mayor of Estancia in 1998 by drawing an Ace-high flush.

    Monkeys peel bananas from the bottom towards the stem, whereas most humans peel the bananna from the stem which is more difficult and squishes the flesh.
