10 Lies Minnesotans Tell Themselves
When is a lie a lie? When the person knows what they're saying is untrue. Do Minnesotans lie? Sure...but only about very specific things. If you don't like lies, but you want to fit in here in Minnesota, this list will help you more than you can imagine.
For instance, when someone says, "Oh no, dear, bless your heart (or soul...I've heard it both ways here)...they're NOT asking God to bless your soul because you're so special and amazing and totally in the right. No no no.
They're letting God know there's a person here that needs a good whap upside the head with a sock full of pennies. Or butter.
"James, that's no lie...people just misunderstand it."
Oh, bless your heart.
