America’s Dairyland. The Badger State and unfortunately similar to Michigan or Minnesota. A state of the Upper Midwest/Great Lakes region bordering Lake Michigan, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa and the putrid Toll Roads of Illinois to the south. Milwaukee is the largest city with some 580,000 in the city in a greater metro area of 1.6 million, just 90-miles north of Chicago. Madison is the 2nd largest city with some 220,000 people and is a nice college town as the main campus to UW. Other cities include Green Bay, Kenosha, Appleton, Oshkosh, Fond du Lac, Eau Clair and La Crosse. The rest of Wisconsin is very low key and conservative. It was the birthplace of American liberalism, thanks to the the La Follete family and the Progressive movement. Wisconsin often supports the Democrat party in national elections.

There are a few basic things almost everyone associates with Wisconsin: the Packers, Beer, Bratwursts and cheese. Wisconsinites cheer for the Green Bay Packers as though it is a religion or something and are called “Cheeseheads. Ironically, Green Bay is the smallest NFL market by far. However, Wisconsin has tons of bars and probably the most per-capita of any state. Wisconsin consumes more alcohol and has a higher people-to-bar ratio then any other state. It is not surprising that Milwaukee is a major beer producer. Many of its 5.7 million residents (ranking 19th in population) are descendants of Nordic Europeans where the people talk with a funny accent similar to Minnesota or Michigan. Natives pronounce the 2nd syllable in their state’s name as if it is coming from their nose. Words that end in “ike” are pronounced “oik” and words that have a short-A, like “bag” are pronounced “beg.” Wisconsin is one of those cold, northern Great Lakes states where fishing, hunting, snomobiling or skiing is popular in the winter. Many “downstate” residents have a cabin in Northern Wisconsin near one of the states THOUSANDS of lakes—more than most states. In fact, many people from the Chicago area to the south, frequently visit Lake Geneva to get away from the city. It may be a cold state but the women are HOT! Many of them can be seen around the UW campus in Madison. Try being there in the summer. Wisconsin Dells is the state’s largest tourist attraction and perhaps only amusement park while House on the Rock, in the town of Spring Green is also popular. Baraboo has a large circus museum.

It is known as “America’s Dairy Land” because it produces more cheese and dairy products per-capita than any state (but California leads the nation in overall production). As a result, Wisconsin is an important state in food processing. Oscar Meyer, Kraft and Johnsonville Brats have large plants in the state while Milwaukee is a major beer producer. The state’s largest industrial center is Milwaukee and is a major producer of tools, machinery, and Harley Davidsons. Wisconsin is a progressive state—much more so than its northern and eastern neighbor of Michigan and almost as much so as Minnesota. It has good schools and its teachers are among the highest paid in the country.

If the cold is the worst thing about this state, then it must be pretty good to live.
Despite its Upper Midwest location, WISCONSIN is a very desent state to live if you can take the cold. I wouldn’t live there just for this reason, but it is a very good state nonetheless.

One of three states (Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota) that have absolute hicks there. The hicks never a) leave the state b) think they're in "God's Country" c) look down on every other state in the union d) act as if their state is the only state that matters e) think they're hot shit and f) are just plain morons.

Apparently they're also all really poor and don't use credit cards, they only use cash. They suck at financial matters.

They also go up to "the lake" a lot on weekends and get indignant when you've never heard of whatever lake they're talking about.
Q: Have you ever been to Las Vegas?
A: No, why would I leave Wisconsin? I've got everything I need right here. This is God's country.

Q: Have you ever heard of Branson, MO? It's the second most visited tourist spot in the U.S. besides Vegas.
A: And Wisconsin.
Q: No, Wisconsin didn't make the list, but Vegas did, and Branson is the premiere tourist spot for families -
A: And Wisconsin.
Q: Whatever.

Q: When was the last time you went on a vacation and saw something new?
A: My parents and I went on a trip around the state and saw everything that Wisconsin had. It was so fun!

Q: What are you doing this weekend?
A: I'm going up to the lake!
Q: Oh, cool. What lake?
A: Lake _____ (something that ends in an "e" sound)
Q: Yeah, never heard of it.
A: OHHH! You've never heard of LAKE _____ (something that ends in an "e" sound)??!! Where have you been? Everyone knows Lake ____ (something that ends in an "e" sound)!!

Q: When was the last time you went and did something really exciting? Do you want to visit new places?
A: Nope, I go up to the lake and I have a cabin there and that's good enough for me. We go up there every weekend and that's what we like and we don't need nothin' else.

Q: Do you have a credit card?
A: Nope! We only use cash! No credit cards! Can I send you a money order?

Hey "Adam", you said, "Wisconsin is a state that has a GOOD football team. 100x better than illinois." That may be true, but who has the better college basketball team? That's right bitch, the Fighting Illini blow your Wisconsin ass right out of the St. Croix River. Oh, What now?

Don't take my comment to seriously dude, I personally don't have anything against Wisconsin or its residents. In fact, Wisconsinites are some of the nicest people I've ever met. You guys up there know how to take one day at a time, and that's cool. People in Wisconsin are friendlier than people in Illinois. Though, I'm not so sure you guys are smarter, I thought all men were created equal. Wisconsin Dells rocks! Don't be hatin' Illinois or Chicago. The Illini rock! Oh, and we are better drivers than you guys...ha-ha...
"Chicago rocks, and don't you forget it!"

1) A state where watching grass grow could be considered an actual sport.
2) Most glorified dairy products on the planet.
3) The state that you DON'T want to live in.
4) A place where people think that just because the Pack won the first Super Bowl that they have the greatest team every season. (COUGH 4-12 COUGH)
5) A state that has an endless amount of dumbass Indian-named cities that has a 2-year learning curve to be able to pronounce the names correctly.
6) Has some of the highest taxes in the country for no particular reason at all.
7) Rednecks who hate gays are everywhere, but somehow it's a blue state every election.
Example 1: Wisconsin is Minnesota's bitch.

Example 2: Wisconsin, the only state where absolutely nothing happens.

Example 3: Wisconsin's only pride and joy is it's ridiculous abundance of alcohol.

A state north of Illinois, east of Minnisota and south/west of Michigan. Wisconsin is known for its almost disgusting abundance of alcohol and alcoholics. Citizens of this not so fine state have some unfounded, unreasonable, unsubstantiated hatred and fear of anyone from another state, especially Illinois. Wisconsinites are grotesquely ignorant and dimwitted. They seem to think that everyone from Illinois is a carbon copy of the jerks that they see from Chicago (not everyone from Chicago, just the jerks) eventhough the rest of Illinois is much like wisconsin with corn instead of dairy and flatter. People from Wisconsin seem to brag about everything, even negative things like adult/child sex and alchoholism. They also seem to maintain that they are the best for things that they have that every other state in the Union could easily meet or surpass.
We could say that in general, Wisconsin is filled with drunk, inbred, xenophobic retards, but that would be offensive to drunks, inbreaders, xenophobes and the mentally retarded.
