If You Ever Thought Your State Was Sad

At least you're not from Idaho. Earlier this month, Maddox gave a nice rant about his potato-farming neighbor. The most telling bit of evidence is the recent resolution the Idaho house passed to commend the movie, Napolean Dynamite, which was filmed in the state.

Here are some of the things they cite as why they honor the film.

"tater tots figure prominently in this film thus promoting Idaho's most famous export"

"Uncle Rico's football skills are a testament to Idaho athletics"

"Napoleon's bicycle and Kip's skateboard promote better air quality and carpooling as alternatives to fuel-dependent methods of transportation"

"Pedro's efforts to bake a cake for Summer illustrate the positive connection between culinary skills to lifelong relationships"

"Kip and LaFawnduh's wedding shows Idaho's commitment to healthy marriages"

"Napoleon's tetherball dexterity emphasizes the importance of physical education in Idaho public schools"

There are many more but the best part of the list concludes with
any members of the House of Representatives or the Senate of the Legislature of the State of Idaho who choose to vote "Nay" on this concurrent resolution are "FREAKIN' IDIOTS!" and run the risk of having the "Worst Day of Their Lives!"

This is where your tax dollars are going.
