We're not just talking about vaguely-shaped-like-Rhode-Island dried meats here. These suckers looked like they were cut out of a big salted cow map. It even seemed like the ribbons of fat in Jerky Wisconsin may have matched some of the rivers in the real state. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to verify this, nor submit our findings to Ripley's or the Guiness Book or O'berto, as we got hungry and had to eat the jerky states.

Want more? There's more.
