A fairly accurate explanation of Minnesotans.
If you've never read How To Talk Minnesotan by Howard Mohr, I can't recommend it highly enough. Especially if you live in Minnesota. Or ever plan on visiting. Or know a Minnesotan (like yours truly).
I have a friend on the east coast who has read it and finds it funny . . . but he didn't realize, until I told him, that everything in the book is true. And it is all true (he still doesn't believe me, but then he's never been to Minnesota).
