LOL.....wasn't as bad as I was expecting. But what's up with the banjo music in the background? I've lived in Iowa all my life for 29 years and I don't think I've ever seen a banjo in person. Its not like we're in Tennessee or Louisiana.

Brought to you by the people who fall at the feet of Britney, Paris and Lindsay. Iowa Chops hockey, Chuck Grassley's alleged "double-knit reversible suits" and Butter sculpture are the ultimate repellents for west coast-smug. Keep Iowa unhip and free of vapid the New Yorkers and Californians who view Celebrity Journalism a real career.

A typical media piece from a typical California-based media organization. Nothing new.

I would just as well hope that the "media" keeps Iowa in our hillbilly spotlight... Maybe that will keep us being the hidden gem that we are for a few more years.

To answer your question Keith, YES! we CAN laugh at ourselves...when it's funny...and that wasn't...

And when did Iowa make the list of stereotypical "Banjo States"???

2008 Banjo States:

Tennessee
Virginia
West Virginia
Alabama
IOWA
Arkansas
Missouri
Mississippi
North Carolina
South Carolina
Georgia

Ah...crap...

Congratulations! It was pretty lame, they could have made it funny but failed. I was expecting them to flash your HS picture or something else hysterical. When the Pap start following you around make sure you have Andy is the one who decks them and says "get out of my face!" that way he's the one that will get sued.

My guilty pleasure is TMZ on tv. When I saw the Shawn Johnson piece, I yelled "Murphy is famous!!" True story.

Keith, you should have worn a straw hat.

"Keith, you should have worn a straw hat."

Andy had borrowed it so he'd blend in at the fair...
