    Re: TMZ Makes Fun Of Des Moines

    Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

    Just posted on Murph's blog, but I'll say it here. What's up with the banjo music in the background? I've lived in Iowa all my life and have never actually seen a banjo.

    What they don't know is WDM may be more Valley than the original 'Valley'.

    Re: TMZ Makes Fun Of Des Moines

    Yeah, it wasn't that bad...but the accent is definitely off....they should at least know what they're making fun of.

    Oh, and the butter Shawn Johnson does deserve a little poking fun at.

    Re: TMZ Makes Fun Of Des Moines

    Yawn. I am all for these ignorant stereotypes (Iowa Chops, polyester suits, bib overalls). It serves the same purpose that the myth that it rains non-stop in Seattle: keeping the wrong people away. These sentiments may have merit in 1970 but if people really knew what Des Moines and central Iowa is actually like you could kiss the light traffic, low home prices and unlocked doors goodbye.

    I thought they would give it to us a little harder than that...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    This isn't really even that bad. I'm from South Dakota, and for some reason, people in New York seem shocked to learn that anyone actually lives there. I've actually been asked if it looks like Little House on the Prairie. I've also been asked if a lot of us live in tepees. Ugh.

    That's fine if TMZ makes fun of us. I make fun of TMZ a lot.

    Re: TMZ Makes Fun Of Des Moines

    I love Iowa and all, but when we have sports teams named the Iowa Chops and Cedar Rapids Kernals, have butter statues of anything, and anyone takes pride in being Miss Sweetcorn 1987 we deserve to be made fun of.

    That's why we have Nebraska next to us, takes the focus off us...

    Aw Shucks, and I thought New York was full of uppity douchebags. I guess they have their fair share of ******** comedians too.
