South Dakota here... not enough people here to bother writing a "You might be a South Dakotan if..." That being said I relate to all the above as I attended Vermilion Comunity College in Ely and graduated from Winona State so I blame my years living in Minnesota for my understanding of the above. Very funny

Some of those are pretty darn funny. I know how to pronounce Mahtomedi because thats where I grew up. I now live in Texas and miss Minnesota like crazy, well I don't miss -20 temps but I miss the people, I miss my sports teams, I miss the scenery. I haven't listened to the KQ morning show in over 5 years, I wonder if its still funny. I also miss swimming in a lake, nobody in Texas swims in a lake.

I'm a Minnesotan and proud of it.

Peace...

Don't live in Minnesota ( have been to Minneapolis once in the summer for work - mid 80's ) , But have been a Vikings fan for 40 years . Would consider living there if my job offered a tranfer , because Ive heard a lot of good things about the people there -- and of course so I could buy season tickets to the Vikings games !!! ( but other than the Vikings , I think I'd really rather move back to Hawaii . No reflection on the people in Minny , just the weather ! )
