“I’m from here *points to arbitrary point on hand*”
~Every Michigan resident
At this point, you likely are familiar with the setup here. The American States of America takes each and every state, one by one, and tells you their most American quality. Some states are great at drinking. Some are great at inventing fatty foods. We’re pretty sure one of them leads the nation in motorcycle-riding-obese-Dwarfs per capita. We don’t know what state that is, but we want to go there right the fuck now. But until then, we’ll just focus on the things that make the following American states so damn American.
“With the power of…DAIRY!”
~Cheeseman, a short lived American superhero
Fair warning, this America Fun Fact of the Day will not be about Cheeseman. We know, you’re all a little saddened by that revelation, but we decided to rip the band-aid off cleanly, and right away. Shh, shh, it’s okay. It’s okay. Drink to forget. Drink to forget.
But that doesn’t mean we’re not going to talk about cheese. Not an American history of cheese, because holy shit that’s a good idea but we’re way too hungover for that, but we are going to talk about a little place we have mentioned before in passing, a venue that is all beer, cheese, and absurd Midwestern ideals of grandeur.
We’re talking about…the Mars Cheese Castle, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“NOW are we there yet? NOW are we there yet?”
~GODDAMN IT KIDS THIS IS WHY YOUR MOTHER LEFT
AFFotD took you on a magical journey through America’s Heartland in the first leg of our Road Trip through Roadside Attractions. We saw a whole slew of things that America decided to make giant for little or no discernable reason, and after checking in on our Chicago offices for a chance to make fun of Vince Vaughn for doing that shit film, The Dilemma, we decided we should continue to see what this fine nation has lying ahead of us. But the last thing we wanted was to be driving sober, and cheese curds sounded pretty fucking delicious, so we headed north to the home state of the Super Bowl Exellvee champions, Wisconsin.
