Wisconsin Tries to Make Like Michigan with Mitten Image

New, 1 comment

Add to the list of things we don't like about Wisconsin: unoriginality. Everyone knows that "The Mitten" belongs to Michigan! Ask anyone to describe the lower peninsula and you'll be talking to the hand as they point out their location on their palm, as that part of the state is shaped like a hand. Ask about the UP (Upper Peninsula) and you might just get a two-handed gesture. So now we learn that the marketing gurus at are ripping us off by posting a new image of their state as a knitted mitten. And might we add a lumpy looking one? With an oatmealy unattractive color. Listen, cheeseheads, go knit yourself a new identity and stop tarnishing the mitten with your big fat hands!
