Pick: I thought it was cherries. It should be cherries.


I think Door County, WI when I think cherries - I actually think it should be apples since my mom always made my family go apple picking every freaking year growing up.

Apple wars from the top of ladders is a great activity (may involve receiving a black eye or causing someone to fall from the ladder, but still a good time)

Hey at least they're not trying to undermine the rights of rape victims, or tear down unions.
With our current crop of lawmakers in Lansing I think this is an appropriate use of their time.
After a quick nap they can do some finger painting.

how about a paw paw?

my vote would be Cherries.   Michigan cherries won't be found in the stores because large corporations buy them all up, they are better than Washington cherries.

You can get them at fruit stands in/around Traverse City and I can confirm they are awesome.

The pIneapple. Or the breadfruit. Something that will symbolize the hopes and dreams of the people, by withering and dying in the environment there.

For some reason I thought he was from Detroit.  Point taken.

The legislature realizing that trade and manufacturing not really being the state's strong suits anymore.

Seriously, Detroit should have every empty house razed and replaced by orchards of cherries. That would also provide seasonal work locally if you cut welfare to the point people would pick in the orchards.

It's controlled by republicans.  I'll take them wasting their time on things like this over them passing things like rape insurance bills and tax cuts for the rich.
 
2014-03-19 04:17:04 PM  
The committee will also discuss a bill sponsored by Sen. Bert Johnson (D-Detroit), which would designate Mackinac Island fudge as the official state sweet.

I've never seriously considered leaving the state until this very moment... If this is the stupid shiat they're wasting time with while the state is literally crumbling, fark it, maybe it's time to cut my losses.

Traverse City has their annual Cherry Festival. People go to it from all across the state and my relatives from Tennessee go up for it. Cherry seems like a good choice for the official fruit even though I think the concept of an official motto/fruit/song/bird is kinda retarded.

Fun fact: When Traverse City's cherry harvest is behind schedule (because of weather), they import their cherries from Washington.
