I've been wondering why I can't get Michigan cherries in California. Thanks, 0bama.

It's not a terrible Warrant song.  It's a terrible song, but a good song for Warrant.

It's a terrible, Warrant song.

I wish this were unbelievable, but it's not. Bureaucracy at it's finest.

They made up for it with Uncle Tom's Cabin.

Michigan cherries are best cherries.  Everything else is too tart or bitter.

All bureaucracy aside, you will not find a better place to spend your summer vacation than Grand Traverse or Leelanau counties.  If you've never been up that way, I can highly recommend it.

They have lots of good songs.  Cherry Pie is, in fact, a terrible Warrant song.  Lane wrote it last second at the behest of the label who then pushed it as the first single.  The band wanted to lead with Uncle Tom's Cabin.  He wrote in 10 minutes on a napkin.

I don't care about the song, Bobbie Brown was hot!

There's a lot of farm bureaucracy of this nature.  In general, it helps the farmers and hurts everybody else (in the form of higher prices on food due to less supply and the government paying farmers not to grow food).  But farmers are a big, organized lobby, and when one side features a small number of people who care about an issue a lot versus a group that's much larger but cares about the issue a lot less, the screaming minority almost always wins.

I only know of that song because of the Guitar Hero games.

I didn't realize there were restrictions. Cherry orchard is my dark horse backup/retirement plan, just because I live on ideal sour cherry dirt.
So I wonder... Chickens are the only animal that should be let loose in an orchard (small, and chicken poop is great fertilizer). And I imagine they love cherries. Would that work economically? Would you get cherry-tasting chicken, or eggs?

Hey, Cherry Pie may be bad, but it's no Unskinny Bop.

With Cherry Pie, I just shrugged my shoulders and said, "meh". With Unskinny Bop, I realized that this was supposedly the best the entire genre of hairband metal had left to offer and I knew its fall was nigh.

One year, three months later, Nirvana's Nevermind was released and wiped the remaining dregs of hairband metal from the airwaves. Given the direction it had been going, I wasn't too sad to see it go except for a few outlier bands.

I like how it is perceived as good that farmers got $8M more for cherries. Like that money appeared out of nowhere.

Interesting seeing how the yearly restrictions are favored by cherry freezers as their product stays good forever, while canned cherries are only good for a year. So it is literally one farmer stealing from another.
