Minnesota nice

I’m beginning to understand life up here in Minnesota. Consider these quotes and stuff:

After musing about Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty attacking the president for telling school children to work hard and get good grades, Garrison Keillor wrote “one starts to wonder if the country wouldn’t be better off without them and if Republicans should be cut out of the health care system entirely and simply provided with aspirin and hand sanitizer.”

Craigslist ad for a VW vanagon restoration went something like this: I was working on it real good. Got it down to basic metal. "Then my attention deficit disorder kicked in and I started making pheasant pens.”

They must have sold out of houseboats up here. Haven’t seen a new classified adv in a couple of weeks now.

Our mailman: “You’re going to need a bigger coat.”

"It's just another game," Brett Favre said this week with a straight face. He certainly earned the cover of the AARP magazine.

MN Star Tribune sportswriter Jim Souhan said it best when he described Favre as the “quarterback who can read a defense like it was a fast-food menu, and deliver quicker than a pizza guy with a new Camaro and heavy debt.”

Even ole' Fuzzy Face laughed at this one.

Now he thinks I have ADD tho.

Great Game!

Hate to be picky but how can Favre, who just turned 40, be on the cover of the AARP mag? Given that the AARP is for we folks 50 or better, or in my case, way, way better?
