God and Minnesota
On the sixth day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said: “Today, I am going to create a land called Minnesota. It will be a land of outstanding natural beauty; a land of 10,000 beautiful lakes, each full of fish, and beautiful landscapes with sprawling prairies of tall grass and beautiful blue skies, and rich, fertile farmland.
The land will be rich in natural resources and populated by people so friendly they shall be known far and wide as 'Minnesota Nice,”
Gabriel replies, “That sounds truly wonderful. But, don’t you think you are being too generous to these Minnesotans?”
"Not really,’ chuckles God. “Wait and see the winters I am going to give them.”
