A quote from the bank's website:
Hmmm... a disputed watermelon. Really?! I would love to know the background to that one...
"Tightwad, Missouri is a village in Henry County, Missouri, United States. The population was 63 at the 2000 census. The town was so named a century ago, allegedly over an incident involving a postman, a grocer and a disputed watermelon."
Actually, the quote is pretty much the entire website. It looks like those guys are so miserly that they haven't even bothered with setting up a proper site yet. However, the NPR story claimed that the bank was a real one and even featured an interview with the bank manager. Amusing.
In other news, this week's Carnival of Personal Finance was hosted by No Debt Plan and includes my post titled: Every Meeting is a Job Interview.
