En Pueblo Llano se publica anualmente en los primeros dias de diciembre ¨La lista de abollados¨ la cual consiste en publicar los nombres de los hombres que estan solos y que procuran por la compañia de una dama. Por lo visto la lista del 2007 vino muy abultada lo que deja ver que cada dia en Pueblo Llano los hombres estan mas solos.
