How to tell that The Onion is from Wisconsin

Standard

A recent Onion headline: Orlando Cabrera Hates Metrodome’s Tuna Casserole Smell
… except here’s the problem. No one in Minnesota would call it “Tuna Casserole.” It’s tuna noodle hotdish. It would be like having the headline “Orlando Cabrera Hates Metrodome’s Late Night Duck Duck Goose Tournament” — Minnesotans don’t play that.

  1. Fair point but:
    1) The Onion is from Wisconsin.
    2) The fact that they were willing to cover the Orlando Cabrera trade indicates that they are probably from a border state. And nothing good comes out of Iowa or the eastern Dakotas. Ergo… Wisconsin.
