Fruitcake Capital of the World

Claxton - Fruitcake Capital of the World

Claxton, Georgia in the USA that is - its claim to fame being the delicious looking fruitcake that comes from the Claxton bakery. I wonder if anyone in Claxton is aware of the British English meaning of the word fruitcake, as in a slightly crazy person. It would be a shame if they could miss the humour in their own magnificent heritage!
