Minnesota Ten Commandments

Spotted on a wooden plaque in a friend’s home:


1. Der’s only one God ya know.

2. Don’t make the fish on yer mantle an idol.

3. Cussin’ ain’t Minnesota nice.

4. Go to church, even when yer up nort.

5. Honor yer folks.

6. Don’t kill — catch & release.

7. Der’s only one Lena for every Ole. No cheatin’.

8. If it ain’t yer lutefisk, don’t take it.

9. Don’t be braggin’ ’bout how much snow you shoveled.

10. Keep your mind off yer neighbor’s hot dish.
