Repo Man said:Once a year we get something spilled all over the freeway. Beer, corn, boxes, oil...this is the first time that monkey poop (or any poop for that matter) was dropped in the freeway. I am glad that it wasn't on my route to work.

Don't know if its an urban myth or not - maybe some Badger will come forward to confirm....but I heard about 17 years ago the state of Wisconsin had a contest or vote from its residents what they wanted as the state motto for the license plates. A group of enthusiastic college students in Madison got wind of this and started 'stuffin the suggestion box. If I remember right the top two slogans were - Wisonsin: eat cheese or die and the runner up was Wisconsin; smell our 'dairy air'. The state legislature wimped out and ended up adopting the tame "America's dairyland" slogan.nerudite said:If I remember correctly, most of Wisconsin didn't smell too good anyway... all that 'dairy air'.
