Tuesday February 17th

The comic:

All I saw was the speech balloon at first, and all I thought was EW!

Now to read the rest of it.

They've done this before, though I guess the fact that the drawing differs greatly is a plus. At least he's not wearing both pairs already.

Though I don't like seeing her beady little eyes. And I don't get his look of panicked stupidity. No, you can't read the menu. Yes, it's scary. Please, scare the rest of us by looking like you've been caught in headlights. (That's what they get for building their fancy restaurant in the middle of a highway!)

And what does a male Plugger need to read a menu for? He wants a hunk of dead cow, his she-nag will tell him the cheapest one available, since apparently she's not blind. But don't worry, he'll still drive. (And open her door! Chivalry ain't dead, ya know!)

These pluggers seem to be going out on a swanky date when their car door is all jacked up. Does being a plugger mean being recklessly irresponsible in the name of fancy vittles?

A Mother-lode of Plugger thought from the Upper Peninsula!
This really belonged on the steak thread.


This list of rules will be handed to each person as they enter GODS COUNTRY, AKA THE UPPER PENINSULA OF MICHIGAN

1. That slope-shouldered farm boy did more work before breakfast than you'll do all week at the gym. He doesn't need your respect, but he sure as hell deserves it.

2. It's called a 'gravel road,' No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your BMW. I have a four-wheel drive because I need it. Drive it or get it out of the way.

3. We all started hunting and fishing when we were nine years old. Yeah, we saw Bambi and we have eaten Bambi. So get over it.

4. Any references to "corn fed" when talking about our women will get your butt our women.

5. Go ahead and bring your $600 Orvis Fly Rod. Don't cry to us if a flathead breaks it off at the handle. We have a name for that little 13-inch trout you fish for...bait.

6. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.

7. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of mallards are making their final approach, we will shoot it. You might hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

8. That's right. Whiskey is only two bucks. We can buy a fifth for what you paid in the airport.

9. The Lions and the Tigers are as important here as the Lakers and the Knicks...and a dang sight more fun to watch.

10. No, there's no "Vegetarian Special" on the menu. Order steak. Order it rare. Or, you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham and turkey. Yeah, we have sweet tea. It comes in a glass with two packets of sugar and a long spoon.

11. You bring Coke into my house, it better be brown, wet, and served over ice.

12. So you have a sixty-thousand dollar car. We're real impressed. We have quarter of a million dollar combine that we drive two weeks a year.

13. Let's get this straight. We have one stoplight in town. We stop when it's red. We may even stop when it's yellow.

14. Our women hunt, fish, and drive trucks--because they want to. So, you're a feminist. Isn't that cute?

15. Yeah, we eat walleye--catfish, too--and turtle. You really want Sushi and caviar? It's available at the bait shop.

16. They are pigs. That's what they smell like. Get over it. Don't like It? Interstate 75 goes two ways U.S.-2 goes the other two. Pick one.

17. The "Opener" refers to the first day of Deer season. It's a religious holiday held the 15th of November. You can get breakfast at the church.

18. So every person in every pickup waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

19. Yeah, we have golf courses. Don't hit in the water hazards. It spooks the fish.

20. Yes, we shoot the pretty birds. They're partridge. They taste delicious!

Now, enjoy your visit and then go home.

Marion - ugh, those make me physically ill. Regional pride is great, but you know what would make it even better? Insulting outsiders!
