Wisconsin is “America’s Dairyland,” a pastoral and beautiful bit of real estate.

Side note: You can get vanity license plates in Wisconsin, but they will not give you OFFMYAS. There are many, many other unavailable letter combinations.


Wisconsin has been the home of many of America’s greatest people.

writer Laura Ingalls Wilder

painter Georgia O’Keeffe

architect Frank Lloyd Wright

comedian Jackie Mason

chief justice William Rehnquist

musician Les Paul

economist Thorstein Veblen


The great escape artist Harry Houdini was from Appleton, Wisconsin.


It has been said that Houdini’s greatest escape . . .

was getting out of Wisconsin.


Famous senator Joseph McCarthy . . .

Nothing’s perfect . . . .


Let’s not forget Wisconsin’s great sports franchises.

The Green Bay Packers run a successful team from the smallest city of any major American professional team.


Their loyal fans are affectionately known as Cheeseheads.


The Milwaukee Brewers baseball team entertains its fans with a “sausage race” at each game.


In a 2003 incident, the costumed Italian sausage runner was tripped by a member of the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates, Randall Simon.


Simon intended this as a humorous prank, but he was fined a token amount and suspended for three games.

He will be remembered only for this incident. His athletic accomplishments will not be recalled.


The 50 state quarters series allowed each state to select a design that promoted its image.

New York chose the Statue of Liberty.


Some states selected great structures.


Some states selected iconic images.


Some states selected noble animals.


Wisconsin chose . . .

. . . a cow.


But let us be very thankful to Wisconsin for its many wonderful …. beers!
