There is a bar on every street corner. The politicians and even someone really high up like either the attorney general or the assistant one had DUIs. Hello? The schools here are like prisons with the pathetic teachers as prison guards. They hack into your myspace email to see what kind of messages you send to other people.

I bet the reason why the state's motto is Forward because instead of staying people want to keep moving foward west and get the hell out of there.

I'm going to refrain from saying Wisconsin sucks. It's cultural identity, while being different than Minnesota, is no more different than the cultural identities of people from North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, or Michigan. And if some hottie for Wisconsin walks past me, I'm definitely going to try to talk to her. What I will say is this: Wisconsin, for some reason, doesn't have a big city on the map the way Minnesota and Illinois and Wisconsin does. Why Milwaukee or Green Bay or Madison didn't become bigger is truly one of the greater mysteries of American History.

Feel better after that rampage. Well I am not getting into a political rant with you because evidently you spend all your time on the internet just looking for things that happen in Wisconsin. You had better look into Minnesota's past before you start throwing stones.
Jealousy will get you no where. Go ahead and spew your hatred for Wisconsin and the Packers it only hurts the image of the Minnesota people. I moved from there because of people like you.
At least we have a great Professional Football Stadium and 3 Lombardi's. What have you got but a worn out dome that couldn't even get filled up before Favre came. BTW what happened to your first two posts? Get a life....

Reread you post because it just doesn't make sense. "What I will say is this: Wisconsin, for some reason, doesn't have a big city on the map the way Minnesota and Illinois and Wisconsin does."
One thing about Wiscinsin is we don't have to beg companies to buy up seats in Lambeau so the game can be televised.

Wisconsin's Tourism Department is scrapping an advertising jingle that drew national attention because it sounded so similar to a song by the British band Supergrass. The department is taking up composer John Tanner's offer to write a new song for the $2.2 million summer ad campaign, "Wisconsin -- Life's So Good," spokesman Jerry Huffman said Monday. The state paid Tanner $22,000 to write original music for its campaign, but he offered to write a new song after acknowledging his music closely resembled the 1995 tune "Alright" by Supergrass.

Wisconsin Teen Survives Garbage Truck Crushing In Lame-Brained Boot Camp Escape Plan\\

A 14-year-old idiot ran away from a boot camp-style school for teens outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and hid in a trash bin to avoid detection. The only flaw in the plan was exposed when a garbage truck picked up the bin and dumped its contents into the back — including the teen. Of course, the garbage truck did what garbage trucks do and compacted the load, repeatedly, while going about its route until offloading at the recycling center, where the teen was found unconscious but alive. Police indicate the idiot's injuries are not life-threatening and he will make a full recovery, but not from his nearly fatal stupidity

The Holy Wisconsinite Empire of Packerstan, commonly known as Wisconsin, is a planet best known for football, dairy, cows, football, dairy, cheese, football, beer, football and obsessive, hopeless, half-ghost romantics. It has been voted "Worst Place In This or Indeed Any Dimension Seeing As How You Asked" every year since 1848.

Today Wisconsin is best known for being the third world country that Ben Affleck grew up in.

Wisconsin is most famous for it's vast Cheesium mines. These mines used to be the World's largest Cheesium mine in the world, So huge that Wisconsin's motto is eat cheese or die. Ironically, a new Cheesium vein has been found in California, and has beaten the previous record once held by Wisconsin.

Cheese
Many people mistakenly believe all cheese is made from fermenting milk, the way barbarians make it in other lands, but Wisconsin cheese is unique because it's quarried from cheesium mines. Cheesium was discovered by Eugene Ingqvist and his crack team of sandstone cutters who broke into the first vein of high-grade cheesium back in the late 1850's. Back then cheesium, like petroleum, was considered no more than a nuisance and left in the hot summer sun to rot and become manure which, as everybody knows, turns into cows, but Eugene's son, Gerdon "Stinky" Eugenesson, realized the potential for cheese as a food when he dropped his bologna sandwich in a rotting pile of it during lunch hour. Invoking the "ten-second rule" and blowing on it to get rid of cheesium germs, Stinky was first to realize that runny, warm cheesium has such a disgusting flavor that he could get suckers to pay an insane amount of money for it if he gave it a French-sounding name and sold it in a fancy box. He was worth millions by the end of the week.

The sources of cheesium have been running low in Wisconsin for many years. Quarries have closed and the really stinky cheesium miners haven't struck a truly delicious vein in decades, leading the cheese industry to desperate ends. The industry erupted in scandal in the late 1990's when commie-pinko left-wing Madison newspapers published the results of a study finding that human spleens contained trace amounts of cheesium, but it could be recovered and processed only when the spleen was messily removed with a chainsaw by psychopaths wearing hockey masks. The news media alleged that state congressmen in on the process were using it as a means to eliminate political opposition.

For the past umpteen years, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism has run a successful advertising campaign centered around the slogan, "Wisconsin: Come smell our dairy air!"
Chris Farley had his first fastball overdose at Marquette University, in the 7th floor women's bathroom in McCormick Hall, the all-freshman dorm and virgin vault.
Orson Welles and Oscar Wilde used Wisconsin as a starting point for a race around the world. Needless to say, it ended elsewhere. We think somewhere in Canadia. Possibly Mexico. Either way, Orson Welles soon ran out of breath, giving Wilde a great lead.
Wisconsin is the alter personality of the late state Baloneysconsin.

How to Tell If You Live in Wisconsin

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 38 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the year, you might live in Wisconsin.

If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you may not have actually eaten it, but you have heard of Head Cheese, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you have either a pet or a child named "Brett," you might live in Wisconsin.

If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you might live in Wisconsin.

If you know how to say Ashwaubenon, Waupaca, Shawano, Suamico, Oconomowoc, Waukesha. Wautoma, Menominee & Manitowoc, you might live in Wisconsin.

If every time you see moonlight on a lake, you think of a dancing bear, and you sing gently, "From the land of sky-blue waters,"....you might live in Wisconsin.

The most popular religions of Wisconsin include a variant of Catholicism called Friday Night Fish Fryism, and, most prominetly, Packerism.

Packerism
Packerism is local religion founded by someone who could not distinguish dairy products from headgear. The main god of Packerism is the "The Great" Brett Favre, who was brutally sacked by the Metropolis Romans. After a three minute break for commercials, the Great Farve resurrected the drive and threw the ball into the end zone for the Holy Touchdown. Unfortunatly the residents believe he has now lost his way, thanks to the devil.

The Packerists dominate Wisconsin's religious landscape. One must always wear green and gold while in Wisconsin and bow towards Green Bay five times a day. Anyone caught wearing red and white is given a stern warning and allowed to pass with a sideways glance. Anyone caught wearing blue or orange is immediately exiled. Anyone caught wearing purple is executed on the spot.

Those with Blue and White are not despised, but felt sorry for. For there is no greater curse than to be a Lions Fan.

The Green Bay Fudge Packers (Packers for short) are an NFL football team located in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The team was named after the fudge packing industry, a huge business in Kenosha. The current roster consists of several players. Three of which are actual football players. The rest are gigantic chickens, diminutive fairies, inanimate objects and figments of your imagination.
