And the Swiss keep the whole thing running.

You live in the Midwest when...

And God Created the Midwest

On the sixth day, God turned to Gabriel and said, "Today I am going to create an area of land called The Midwest. It will be a land of outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall hills and rolling plains full of game and eagles, beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful with bass and streams full of trout, forests full of deer and turkeys, valleys with fertile soil with an abundance nutrients to grow things, and rivers teeming with fish. I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Midwesterners, and they shall be known as the most friendly people on earth."
"But Lord," asked Gabriel, "don't you think you are being too generous to these Midwesterners?"
"Not really," replied God.. "Just wait and see the winters I am going to give them!"
