Saltyfries here, I would like to welcome you to Wisconsin! This fact comp is all about Wisconsin and nothing but Wisconsin. SO LETS GO!
Wisconsin was founded as a state in 1848, with the state capital being the city of Madison Wisconsin. Wisconsin is the 30th state in the USA and is ranked 20th in Population with over 5 million.
Wisconsin is also known as America's Dairyland, having the 2nd most varieties of cheese available in the world (only behind France). While not the most in production the variety does make up for it (and the quality). Wisconsin also invented Colby (pictured is the old factory in Colby, WI) and Colby-Jack. Wisconsin is also infamous for their Cheese Curds (plain and deep fried!).
Seymour, WI, is one of the 3 homes of the hamburger! Although history has proven that New Haven, CT, came up with the hamburger first, it was in 1885 during the Seymour Fair where a vendor mashed a meatball and put it between 2 slices of bread.
of course, how can do I a fact comp without the famous Wisconsin sports teams! Wisconsin is home to some legendary sports teams including the Green Bay Packers (wooo my hometown!), the 3rd oldest NFL franchise inducted into the NFL in 1921 and is the ONLY Major Top Tier sports franchise in America that is owned by a city. They play in Lambeau Field (the current 3rd oldest active stadium) with a capacity of 81,435 and have been selling out since the 1960's with a 30+ year waiting list for season tickets.
Like many states in the USA, college football is also a tradition here, in the state capital Madison, WI, it's home to the University of Wisconsin Badgers. They play their football games in the equally big stadium to Lambeau at Camp Randall Stadium. The tradition here though, at the end of the 3rd quarter, House of Pain's Jump Around blares on the speakers, and the ENTIRE STUDENT SECTION JUMPS AROUND! The tradition has been active since 1998
Another one cuz i love this tradtion!
Wisconsin is located in the upper part of the Midwestern United States, 2 of the great lakes border it, Superior and Michigan. This is a shot of Milwaukee from Lake Michigan. Even during the summer, the shorelines of Lake Michigan are an absolute treat to see and is an underrated vacation destination
need another vacation destination? head on over to Wisconsin Dells! Located just north of Madison, the dells is home to the world's largest water park in Noah's Ark, and Mount Olympus Water/Theme Park, pictured here is Mt. Olympus's crowning jewel, Hades!
Wanna know what else we're famous for? BEER! and it makes sense when you think about it. Wisconsin was mostly settled by Germans and other eastern Europeans which started a lot of traditions including beer and local cuisine (**** man I live near a Polish town and it's got paczki's and Kielbasa!). Beer though is one of our best achievements. Our state is one of only a few that has more bars than grocery stores (hell a bar makes a town here). The list of breweries that i know of including pictured, it includes Capital, Titletown, New Glarus, Lakefront, Schlitz (making a comeback), Sprecher, Steven's Point, and of course Miller.
Did you know the modern Republican party (aka the GOP) was founded in Wisconsin? You can blame us for that. The first meeting took place in 1854 in the small town of Ripon, WI. I bet Liberals are triggered super hard right now and are wishing for a time machine to blast the place. Suckers.
Wisconsin literally has a little bit of everything really, from populous cities like Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, etc.. To beautiful countrysides, small town americas, hell we even have a ski resort in the center of the state in Wausau (pronounced Wah Saw) on Rib Mountain (rather Rib Mole Hill).
and finally a little funny, Lewis Black on Wisconsin, he's not wrong on a lot of this.
