Hawkeye Burns UM Wolvermuts

I do not post many forward emails because they are either distasteful/unfunny jokes, dirty porn or distorted rants declaring that President Obama is the anti Christ.

However, I made an exception for this one.

A recent graduate of Iowa moved to Dearborn, Michigan when shelanded a great job with a company located there. After becoming a citizen of Michigan, she felt almost as if she had betrayed her Iowa background and ancestry. She had an apartment with a Michigan address, and she winced whenever she looked at her Michigan driver's license. When it came time to register her vehicle she had an idea. She'd get personalized plates and make things right.

The personalized license plate for her car arrived, and she beamed as she installed them. She was so proud she sent an instant message to her father right away. He too was a proud Iowa alumnus.

'Daddy,' she typed. 'I'm so excited! I got new, personalized plates for my Mini today. They're University of Michigan plates!'

'WHAT?' he replied, 'You have to be joking!'

'Nope, I'm totally serious. Let me send you the image.'

Her father couldn't stop laughing after he viewed the picture of her car.

"Betraying your Iowa ancestry" is a little too much Iowa pride for my tastes but I am thoroughly impressed with how she rolls now.

Personally, I would worked into mocking the hand on the plates because every Michigander that I have ever met loves to point out their hometown to each other on their hand. A tip for all those single dudes or philanders out there, poking fun at this weird hand obsession works great as an ice breaker in convos with women from Michigan.

Meshugener, Michigander - same difference.

What about this one for Virgina?
