Greetings from North Dakota, which is apparently on another planet

Late last night, completely inexplicably, a reader identifying himself as Some Guy in North Dakota left a message on our Contact Us page.

I have been reading your website all evening. I didn’t know I could connect to websites on other friggin’ planets.

Being from North Dakota, all I can say is “Wow”. Maybe I should include “Whew!” WHAT IS IT WITH YOU PEOPLE???

There are about as many people in this entire state as there are in SF. The few that dress/act/talk/think like you folk get put in our State Mental Hospital.

I am stunned. Amazed. (mostly stunned).

Is there something they put in the water there? What’s the deal?

I just do NOT get it. [link]

Me neither! But thanks for reading!

    I love it that he read the website ALL night! Must have been a big break from his life in ND.

    He’s lucky his sheep aren’t tattle-tales.

    Geesh, I wouldn’t have thought my questions would have garnered so many comments. Uffda!

    (Not many sheep here, En-Chu. Didn’t you see ‘Brokeback Mountian’? The sheep lovers are mostly all those faggy Cowboys in Montana. Those big belt buckles they wear? – Monuments to a dead dick)

    As far as the movie Fargo, well… it is pretty accurate. Everyone DOES talk like that here. I used some spare time and the french soundtrack on Fargo to teach myself ‘The Tongue of Love’ with a North Dakotan accent.

    I was poking around this site a bit more, and read that you are having a little party there today.


    Witness the battle of the blends as SF’s baristas and BBQ purveyors throw down in this block party battle royale + Biergarten.

    What To Expect:

    •Servings of 4 rib dishes and 4 signature sides, plus a vote to determine whose ribs reign supreme
    •1 beer or wine in Coffee Bar’s pop-up Biergarten
    •Spectator access to Coffee Bar’s barista competition
    Games of sidewalk corn-hole

    Could someone please take an post a few pics of that little get-together for me?

    People around here just are NOT going to believe me when I tell them that you folks in the Mission District actually corn-hole each other right there, out in the open, right on the sidewalks.

    Mission Mission is getting trolled so hard.

  9. Tim says:

    The primary colors in North Dakota are Red, Blue, and Camoflage.
