BBC Fargo?

BBC has a new miniseries on the old film "Fargo", which is actually about Minnesota and the original film had lots of Minnesota jokes that were only understood by natives there.

No, I haven't seen it: we get these things 3 year later.

And no, the story is not "real": it's fiction. Sheesh.

and here is how to tell if you are from Minnesota:

You betcha you're from Minnesota when...

  • You only own three spices...salt, pepper and ketchup.
  • You have more miles on your snow blower than your car.
  • Grumpy Old MenYou thought Grumpy Old Men was documentary.
  • You design your Halloween costumes to fit over snowmobile suits.
  • You feel warm and toasty at -12°.
  • You know the four seasons—Winter, Still Winter, Not Winter and Almost Winter.
  • Or: You know there are only two seasons—Winter and The Time When They Fill In The Potholes In The Road.
  • Though you're not breaking the law, you break into a cold sweat when the game warden appears.
  • The Remarkable Saga of Ole and LenaYou know Ole and Lena personally.
  • You owe more money on your snowmobile than your car.
  • You think the opening of deer season is a national holiday.
  • You find -40° only a mite chilly.
  • You think everyone from a different state has an accent.
  • Your husband thinks sexy lingerie is a flannel nightgown with only eight buttons.
  • You've ever taken your kids trick-or-treating in a blizzard.
