Some Idahoans Have A Sense of Humor

(Intel Source: Catch-33) This actually happened a few months ago, but I was very impressed by it at the time. Idaho politics are normally quite boring (over 80% of the legislators are Republican) but for one brief, shining moment this year they made moving to this state completely worthwhile. Unless you've never seen Napoleon Dynamite, you'll probably enjoy Idaho House Concurrent Resolution No. 29. One of the summary "whereas" statements is priceless:

"WHEREAS, 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!"

And yes, for those who were wondering, Idahoans really do call what everyone else calls tater tots -- "tots".

Going deep...

I went to Comic-Con for the first time this year. I went to three seminars and popped into one because Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) was sitting on the panel. He is not like the charter he plays and was quite articulate as to what he had done, where he was and where he wanted to go. Gawd.
