An Open Letter to Midwesterners

My Fellow Midwesterners!

Did you know that they’ve changed the University of Missouri–Rolla to Missouri University of Science and Technology?!  How, I ask you, is a girl supposed to say “Oh, Missouri University of Science and Technology” with the same amount of smug disdain that a girl can roll “Oh, Rolla” off her tongue?  How could they do this without consulting those of us who didn’t go there?


Aunt B.

p.s.  Come on, Missouri, why isn’t your state tourism slogan “Missouri loves company”?  It’s so good I can’t believe I’m the first person to think of it.

  1. Come on, Missouri, why isn’t your state tourism slogan “Missouri loves company”?

    ROFL…that is hilarious! Thanks for giving me a good laugh…I needed that today. :)

  2. That was great, Aunt B. My FIL would love you for that one since Missouri-baiting is practically a sport with him.

  3. I’ve never forgiven y’all for the Arch. I swear that’s a joke you play on the rest of the country–“Let’s design something that looks cool, but in which we can cram tourists and scare the crap out of them! And then let’s go eat fried ravioli!”

  4. Oh, B: Think of the acronym: MUST. One letter short of elephant mating season. How can you not like that?

    And I’m tempted to say that the reason “Missouri loves company” isn’t the state tourism slogan is that no one with a sense of humor works in tourism–at least at the level of making these sorts of decisions.
