It’s cold, why do you live here?

This just in from the “Because It’s Friday, That’s Why” Department:

Students from Franklin Middle School in Minneapolis, and their teacher, Michael Bratsch, are prepared for the onslaught of “It’s cold, why do you live here?” questions expected in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, in Bemidji: Organizers weren’t sure how many people would show up to make a video in support of the Vikings. They showed up.

We are pleased to share with you our SKOL Chant Video! Thank you to Pinnacle Marketing Group for your creativity and help in pulling this together. Special thanks to Tom Schwartz from Big River Scoop for starting this whole process! Thanks to our co-planners Visit Bemidji! A big thanks to the media in Bemidji!

    Love that video from Franklin!

    And yeah, I am sure there are going to people who come and are shocked (Shocked, I say!) at the fact that it is winter here and that it gets cold.

    A question I have been asking myself for decades… : )

  • theoacme

    Because I hate too much heat and humidity…

    … because heating is more mechanically reliable than a/c…

    … because I enjoy cuddling much less when it’s 90 degrees, 50% relative humidity, and no a/c…

    …and I have lived in the south, and never want to go back, I’d eat rotted lutefisk first!

    • John

      “I’d eat rotted lutefisk first!”

      isn’t that redundant?

      • Jerry

        Not rotting is kind of the point of lutefisk

        • John

          I know, but that smell. . .

          (It was the first thing that popped into my head, and I thought it was funny)

  • Mike Worcester

    People in Manitoba get asked that also.
