You know you're in Wisconsin when:

Your neighbors shot & eat 7 legged deer;
Your neighbors set their genitals on fire;
Your neighbors have carnal relations with dead deer.

Sorry, couldn't resist... 8)

Good stuff. I like that you tacked on the last 3 considering the laughs we have all had on those stories.

=D>

Of course, many of the items in the original post (mostly the ones w/o snow and the Pack) could be transferred over to some of the people near where I live, the Pineys.....

That is a conversation for another day though :wink:
