Wisconsin could get weirder?

Clearly, kids trapped inside Pick-A-Toy machines is only the lastest example of weirdness As a recent Wisconsinite, I've noticed everyone from The Simpsons to The West Wing gets in a few easy swipes at the cheese state. But this is a nice (and new) collection of historical weirdness in Wisconsin. From images of Cow Chip Tossing to a Female Band Playing to Cows, this state clearly has some issues.

It looks like even visiting Vermonters get infected by that weirdness.

"It takes a village to make a movie, but when that village is Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin and not Hollywood, CA, the results are at times bizarre, comical, and very American."

Weird wacky Wisconsin. Nothing wrong with that. My favorite state, the only one I was ever proud to live in, owned property in, and still vote.

First state to have gay rights legislation.
