I Love Minnesota and that is why I can laugh at Myself...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

I see so many stuffed shirts today.  I think the P. C. police have taken the fun out of life.  They have made us so serious that we can't even laugh at ourselves.

WELL...NOT ME.

"You Betcha" you're from Minnesota when...

You own only 3 spices, Salt, Pepper and Ketchup
You have more miles on your snow blower than your car  (except for this year)
You know Ole and Lena personally
You design your Halloween costumes to fit over snowmobile suits.
You know which leaves make good toilet paper
You know the 4 season...Winter, Still winter, Almost Winter and Not Winter
You owe more on your snowmobile that on your car
You thought that Grumpy Old Men was a Documentary
You think that everyone from a different state has an accent
Your Husband thinks that sexy lingerie is a flannel nightgown with only 8 buttons
You have 10 great recipes for Venison
You think that Wild Rice is exotic and white rice is a hot dish.
Somewhere in the state is a piece of frozen metal with bits of your tongue stuck to it.

Life is short...don't let the P. C. Police take your laughter away.  Laugh at yourself and you will be the hit of the party!  WE survive in Minnesota because we can laugh at ourselves.  Come and vist us and see what Minnesota Nice is all about!

Ya - you betcha by golly!

If we can't laugh at ourselves it means we've turned into robotic stuffed shirts. That's why I add to my son's collection of blonde jokes whenever I see a good one.

Thanks for the Friday laugh. I like the one about the leaves and that applies to rural Colorado as well.

Most of these apply where eveer you put them, but the main idea is that we can laugh at oursleves.   Keeps us human.

LOL, most of those could be true just about anywhere. At least it is warm enough here I don't need to own a snow blower or snow mobile.

When did they add pepper and ketchup to the spice list?  Nobody told me about that.
