Our sophisticated taste
There is a curious statistic embedded in the text of a story in today's New York Times about the rising popularity of redneck comedians in "blue" states. Minneapolis-St. Paul, it turns out, leads the nation in sales of the new CD by Larry the Cable Guy.
I haven't caught Larry's act. But after visiting his website I find myself more than a little puzzled that he should have such a strong following in the Twin Cities. Sample joke: "I was in an Indian casino the other day and there was prostitute in there called Pork-A-Hontas!"
