See that giant red mass in the upper midwest? Yep- THAT is why (in part) I have so much midwestern pride... 'cause we do it right and we love us some beer. And brats and A LOT of cheese. I can proudly say that I come from the land where bars outnumber grocery stores. That is awesomesauce. And here's the best quote from the blog (floatingsheep) that came up with this little gem:
"Starting in Illinois, the beer belly expands up into Wisconsin and first spreads westward through Iowa/Minnesota and then engulfs Nebraska, and the Dakotas before petering out (like a pair of love handles) in Wyoming and Montana."Now tell me you aren't wishing you were one of us... and that you aren't now thirsty for a big, cold mug of tasty, tasty beer. Mmm hmmmm.... that's what I thought: You can't.
