You know what makes me proud? Living in Wisconsin. Whenever something in Wisconsin makes national news it is something like this---

ELDERON, Wis. - Around here, it may be tough to pass up anything
deep-fried. Wisconsinites have deep-fried cheese curds, candy bars and
Twinkies. They now have deep-fried livestock testicles, too.
More than 300 people paid $5 for all-you-can-eat goat, lamb and bull testicles Saturday at
the ninth annual Testicle Festival at Mama's Place Bar and Grill in Elderon
in central Wisconsin.
"Once you get over the mental (aspect) of what you're eating, it's just like eating any other food, and it tastes good," Buster Hoffman said.
The event grew every year and now they fry up to 100 pounds of testicles, she said.
"What else can you do in a small town?" Fenske said.
Butch Joubert, 58, likes the parts sandwiched between bread with tartar sauce. They're not so different from regular meatballs also served at the festival, he said.
"After a few beers, you can't really tell the difference," Joubert said.

Or This---

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - Attempts to duplicate a movie stunt landed one man in the
hospital with burned genitals and another facing criminal charges.
The men
were trying to do a stunt from one of the “Jackass” movies, in which a character
lights his genitals on fire.
Jared W. Anderson, 20, suffered serious burns to
his hands and genitals, according to the criminal complaint. Randell D.
Peterson, 43, who sprayed lighter fluid on Anderson and lit him on fire, was
charged with felony battery and first-degree reckless endangerment Tuesday in
Eau Claire County Court.

Who wouldn't want to stand up proud and say--I'm from Wisconsin!

Oh, come on. You know everyone eating at that festival and probably the guys from Eau Claire were actually tourists from Illinois. :)

I love living in Wisconsin--we're so simple here. And I mean simple in a good way.
