"This could be bigger than the New York apple," Nelson said. "Maybe."

Yeah, um... Maybe NOT ?

goes to show you how disillusioned you can be living in .. well, whatever state it was where they just thought about dropping a fish to celebrate a new year
2001-12-10 12:21:44 PM

2001-12-10 12:21:54 PM  
Oh yeah, in case you didn't know.

Most inappropriate use of the term "brainstormed" ever.

I live in Green Bay, Wi - and this even embarasses ME! How ridiculous. It's no wonder why people think WI is hickville. Good God!!!

I think it's just because it's western Wisconsin, out in the backwoods with nothing better to do but drink and... well, drop carp I guess.
2001-12-10 01:15:38 PM  
Yeah, let's let the less civilized ppl of west wisconsin do whatever they want to.. at least the ppl up north have it right, drink beer, and shoot the deer!
2001-12-10 01:18:51 PM

(btw, we're too friends about 10 miles away from eachother)
2001-12-10 01:32:17 PM  
ummm....carp, yeah...all i can think of is that fish from TV Funhouse....
2001-12-10 01:32:58 PM  
Yep... that's my home state for ya.
I swear, anybody born in WI, who wasn't actually born in Milwaukee, or Madison (or their respective subburbs) is sporting a mullet and an IQ equivalent of a retarded jellyfish.
2001-12-10 01:35:11 PM  
I'm sorry. I was just informed that that was not very PC and I actually offended several retarded jellyfish. My appologies to them.
Let's try this: They have an IQ lower than that a secret progeny of Carrot Top and Pauly Shore

Is it me, or is this a really weak fark link?

......i haven't been this dissapointed in a fark link in a long while....(sigh)......
2001-12-10 02:24:48 PM  
how was any one of those articles newsworthy? and since when has spearheaded a celebration of backassward articles?
*bangs head against the wall*
2001-12-10 02:38:50 PM  
I spent a whole month one weekend in Madison.
2001-12-10 02:57:42 PM  
Why is it that whenever a retard does something stupid in a state other than New York or California, that state's people get the blame, but in New York or California the blame is rightfully placed on the retard.
2001-12-10 03:29:05 PM  
Oh yeah, bones, Milwaukee is a BASTION of intelligence.
2001-12-10 03:38:03 PM  
"They have an IQ lower than that a secret progeny of Carrot Top and Pauly Shore"

(I am neither retarded or related to Mr. Shore or Mr. Top)

I was born in Chippewa Falls and lived in Trempealeau. There ARE other towns in Wisconsin beside the two M's.

i've lived in neenah (after moving from nj) for a little over 6 months.. it doesnt seem bad here.. not many mullets. :P

i think every state has their redneck retard areas.
2001-12-10 04:00:25 PM  
::heavy, HEAVY sigh:: It was a joke guys.
Goes along with my convincing people on the west coast that most homes in Wisconsin (if not in Milwaukee or Madison) have 4-5 acre lots with free ranging cows that we tip for fun.
2001-12-10 04:09:57 PM  
i wasnt being defensive.. was just commenting. :) and i've still never gone cow tipping yet. :P

Milwaukee's annual Summerfest is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, music fest on Earth.
Milwaukee is such a clean city, too.
But Green Bay sucks !
2001-12-10 04:56:17 PM  
one word.....Mississippi
2001-12-10 04:59:31 PM  
i sooo wanted to go to summerfest this year.. stabbing westward was playing and they're one of my absolute favorite bands.. things didnt quite work out tho. *sniffle*
2001-12-10 06:03:33 PM  
It's been done. They've dropped a walleye in Port Clinton, OH, for going on five years now. I sincerely hope they're not proud of that.
Pardon my lack of html skills:

The IQ level here in Wisconsin is so low that it is painful for me to go to school everyday and watch all the hicks in their trucks.
