Subject: The Creation of Wisconsin
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was
missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the Archangel
found Him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of
God, "Where have You been?"
God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly
pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look Michael,
look what I've made!" Archangel Michael looked puzzled
and said, "What is it?" "It's a planet," replied God, and
I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth, and it's
going to be a great place of balance.
"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused
God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth, "For
example, northern Europe will be a place of great
opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to
be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot spot.
And over there I've placed a continent of white people,
while over here is a continent of black people."
God continued, pointing to different countries. "This one
will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very
cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed
to a large land mass and said, "What's that one?"
"Ah," said God. "That's Wisconsin the most glorious place
on earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, sunsets and
rolling hills. The people from Wisconsin are going to be
modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be
found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable,
hardworking and high achieving, and they will be known
throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then
proclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there
would be balance!"
God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the "Ding Bats"
I'm putting around them in, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan and
