Mike N. lays down a case for why Iowa’s not that bad:
What is my favorite state that isn’t where I grew up and where I live now?
And it’s actually a no-brainer. IOWA. Now maybe this state should be disqualified since that’s where I went to college. And I did live in Iowa City for two years after that.
However, I can list 100 reasons, easily as to why Iowa kicks ass. Don’t worry, I won’t. But from the Hawkeye cheer at football games (one side cheers, “I!” the other shouts “O!” and the end zones shout “WA!”) to Secret Pizza, the Amana Colonies, and the replica of the Star Trek Enterprise in Riverside, I-O-WA gets my vote. Oh yeah, and I left out the now defunct Dr. Brown’s Cookies–fresh-baked cookies delivered to your house a la Domino’s.
I’m curious to find out more about these Dr. Brown’s Cookies. Do they deliver to Minneapolis?
