Minnesotans are good people. Considerate and polite, they show a
genuine concern for nature, and display a marked enthusiasm for beef
and dairy products. Minnesotans invented Scotch tape and the Bundt cake
pan. Our university performed both the first open-heart surgery and
bone-marrow transplant in the entire country. Weird Al Yankovic wrote a
song about our gigantic twine ball, and another about our famous canned
meat product, Spam.
Yes, these are truly the markings of good folk.
But then there's a bunch of extremely annoying and strange things that people do here that the rest of the country looks at with a furrowed brow and a wince. Although the faithfully Minnesotan thing would be to smile awkwardly and ignore these troublesome traits, there comes a time when some problems need to be dragged kicking and screaming into the spotlight.
