Ironhead Haynes' Nine Commandments:
1. It's okay to call hooters "knockers" and sometimes "snack trays."
2. It is wrong to be French.
3. It's okay to put all bad people in a giant meat grinder.
4. Lawyers: see rule three.
5. It is okay to drive a gas guzzler if it helps you get babes.
6. Everyone should car pool but me.
7. Bring back the word "stewardesses"
8. Synchronized Swimming is not a sport.
9. Mudwrestling is a sport.

Influences and references: The episode title is inspired by the song "Ballad Of Ira Hayes" by Johnny Cash. The highest mountain Illinois is Charles Mound (1235 ft).
