8 Most Likely Ways Wisconsin Will Be Wiped Off The Map
I’m not saying Wisconsin could ever be wiped off the map, but if Wisconsin ever did, it would have to be because of one of these eight reasons. Read on to see my reasoning.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. The whole entire world decides to become vegan.
As America's Dairyland, obviously a huge part of our economy and what we are known for is dairy. If people became vegan, they'd have no use for our butter, milk and eggs. But ice cream tastes awesome, so I highly doubt that could ever happen.
2. The Packers are never, ever good again or leave the NFL.
The Green Bay Packers ARE football. We are one of the oldest franchises, we consistently have good players, and, oh yeah, the championship trophy is named after our former coach, Vince Lombardi. As long as the Packers are around, people will know about Wisconsin.
3. Prohibition takes hold of America--again.
A lot of the country enjoys our brews. People who know very little about Wisconsin know that people up here like to drink beer. But we know how prohibition worked out the first time around.
4. A tornado or series or tornadoes takes most of us out.
Fortunately for Wisconsin, we aren't by any fault lines or oceans, and the climate is not dry, so very few natural disasters could wipe us out. The only one I could imagine would be a devastating tornado, but even the worst ones in history have not been so horrible as to wipe an entire state off the map.
5. Cranberries cease to be a part of peoples' Thanksgiving.
You might not know this, but Wisconsin is the number one producer of cranberries. It is a large part of our economy, and it would definitely hurt our state if the crop failed or people stopped eating them. But as long as people eat cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving, Wisconsin will be kept alive.
6. People stop appreciating Harleys.
Another major corporation in Wisconsin is Harley-Davidson. It could be that people stop riding motorcycles or at least start driving some inferior brand. But people are too smart for that, right?
7. People stop wiping.
You might not sit there and appreciate toilet paper much, but imagine the society before us where people didn't have this stuff. Wisconsin is one of the largest producers of it. So Wisconsin could not be wiped (pun intended) off the map unless people wanted to use newspapers or leaves or something.
8. People turn their backs on Wisconsin and leave.
The only other reason Wisconsin would fall into oblivion is that people up and leave. But you know what? Wisconsin is awesome, and people tend to stay around. Generations of families live here. So Wisconsin is not going anywhere. You can count on that!
Love us or hate us, America, we are here to stay!
