Virginia, Minn. was 'Queer City' after water tower prank
It's likely the city of Virginia, Minn. is already done repainting their prized water tower back to its original name, but for some time this weekend, the town was all queer.
Someone climbed up onto the water tower and changed the "n" in "Queen City" to an "r" making it the "Queer City". What a knee slapper.
City officials aren't amused. They have launched a criminal investigation to figure out who managed to climb over barbed wire to complete the prank.
