From zombie gatherings to mashed potato wrestling to pet weddings and breast milk donations, every state is unique – and sometimes strange – in its own way.

Estately has published a map showing which Guinness World Records each state holds.

Take South Dakota, for example, where mashed potato wrestling is apparently commonplace. Now consider New York, where people spend the most money on pet weddings. Meanwhile, people in Minnesota are sure to have a fun time this Halloween with all of their zombie gatherings – although Louisiana is the state known for the biggest Halloween party. But then again, who can overlook Texas' claim to fame by donating the most breast milk?

If you think these are odd ways for states to make names for themselves, wait until you see how the rest of them stack up:
