If you live in Wisconsin, then you know it’s like no other place in the world. Here are a few of those reasons you can share with your out-of-state friends.
Bubble n’Squeak isn’t a British dish
Well, technically it is, but it’s different in Wisconsin. Cheese curds are considered fresh if they squeak, while “bubblers” are what we call water fountains.
We can be pretty cheesy folks
Wearing a large piece of cheese on your head is seen as completely natural.
We can be a bunch of brats
In Wisconsin the correct way to enjoy bratwurst is thus: Boil in beer and onions, rotate while grilling, then pile on the sauerkraut and mustard.
Winter exercise is important
Your daily dose of exercise in winter is spending at least an hour scraping snow and ice off your car.
Don’t be a deer in Wisconsin
People have been known to call in sick from work and school for the first official day of deer hunting.
We’ve been in so many movies!
In Titanic, even Jack told Rose about the freezing temperatures in Chippewa Falls.
It’s not Halloween unless you’re properly dressed
You know better than to wear your Halloween costume over anything less than a puffy down coat and long johns.
There are no such things as snow days
Just assume every day in Wisconsin is a snow day unless the forecast says otherwise.
Driving is a combat sport
