Hold the Dorothy & Toto Jokes: After 70 Years Kansas Should Embrace Stereotype

We got it, we sell it, we still don’t like it…

For upwards of 70 years people around the world have been typecasting the state of Kansas based in no small part on scenes from the Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland as Dorothy.

    Used to be when people would ask “where yare ou from” I said the truth, and they would prattle on …..blah blah blah..and I would say what about “THE KC Royals” or “KC Chiefs” … but now we know about that……

    BUT…..sooner than later we will be known for having more NCCAA Mens Basketball titles than any other school. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK GO KU

    btw- is it true that MU lost to oral roberts? no way … really? wow!! too bad, ouch.

    This is just one of many reasons why, when people say they are from MU, I just say “sorry to hear that” and I mean it, it is too bad, poor MU folks, but they are slightly better than the the poor KSU dorks ….. say that reminds me …..

    “go west until you smell it, and north until you step in it.

    “MU cheerleader suspended after incident with basketball players” , seems an MU guy was beat up by a MU girl, really?? NO WAY ,, come on, cant be ….. poor MU folks, how embarrassing.

    I almostfeel sorry for them, but from the PAIGE ARENA debacle to the dope smoking football player calling the coaches wife from prison, to all of the rest of the loser crap, it is mostly self inflicted.

    If Kansas was not located next to Missouri it would be like North Dakota. When you have to stop coming to Missouri to use our airport, NFL and MLB teams, concert and cultural event venues, casinos and Lord knows what else, you CAN’T break balls. When someone graduates from KU and actually makes a difference in the world let us know. Until then shut the fuck up.
