Well, don't worry...

... they're not going to remove "America's Dairyland" from our license plate.

If the cows voted it would be," Eat Mor Chikin."

Walker said agriculture and manufacturing are the bread and butter of Wisconsin’s economy.

Well, definitely dah buttah, at least.

Or, are they the meat & potatoes? In Idaho, perhaps they would be.

I thought it said America's Disneyland until I looked at the linked article.

They're going to milk it for all it's worth.

If Walker weren't such a squish on immigration issues, he would be US President now.

You realize that this "dairy" business is a world-destroying plague on the planet?

I think that one reason why Walker was such a squish on immigration is that a lot of Wisconsin farms employ illegal aliens.

So, everything fits together, and all can be explained.

For some reason this reminded me of the post-'72 election bumper sticker that declared
"Don't blame me, I'm from Massachusetts"

Now we should have one that appeals to the same audience stating

"You can blame me, I'm from Wisconsin"

Everything goes better with Bailey's Irish Cream and Khalua.

Wisconsin Cheese: Artificially Colored

sysadmn said...

in the Eighties, Wisconsin ran the "Escape to Wisconsin" ad campaign. Ads included TV, radio, and even bumper stickers. Wags cut the middle word out of the bumper stickers.

Around the same time, there was a contest to suggest a new state slogan. A friend entered a few times via postcard, but apparently "Smell Our Dairy Air" was not a good slogan.

Dang. I had hoped they would change it to 'Smell Our Dairy Air'.

rehajm, annato isn't "artificial coloring." It's a legit plant product. Though, granted, it's totally unnecessary. My favorite cheddar now is a NZ grass-fed sharp from Trader Joe's, and it's basically pale blonde.

Bullet....dodged!

And we aren't going to change "Governor Scott Walker" from our "Welcome to Wisconsin" signs on the border either.

Lucien said...

Still rooting for "Eat Cheese or Die".

So say all the proud E160b farmers...

I think the marquee of the Hotel Oshkosh nailed it: "Arntcha' Gladger a Badger!"

(from Garrison Keillor's story "Yon", which also notes that "[It] tended to keep out the uptown crowd and lure in Wisconsonites like a magnet.")

It is udderly ridiculous, but it seems the dairy farmers have lawmakers under their thumbs, so they get to suckle from the government's teat for 'free' advertising a while longer...

I wonder of buffalo, wildebeest, elephant, antelope, moose, and so many other animals that have been reduced vastly in numbers had dangerous farts too? Termites also fart a lot.
