I don’t know if other states get crazy with making fun comments about what it is like living in their state but here in Nebraska we are fond of our simple life and how we have a love, hate relationship with our weather. I just couldn’t resist sharing Jeff Foxworthy‘s comments about Nebraska that I found on Facebook. Oh, and I might mention that if you live in or are born and raised in Nebraska you can say these things in fun but if you are not from Nebraska, it’s better to refrain from such jesting. We may take offense. LOL
