Dislike of proximate neighboring states is as American as apple pie, usually accompanied by hurtful slogans as "Thank God for West Virginia." In Tennessee our favorite neighboring state to ridicule was Kentucky, despite the proximity of such low-rent venues as Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas. Thus, when UK beat UT this year for the first time in 26 years this year, it really stung!

The disliked neighboring state for many Montanans seems to be Idaho.

Actually, the state name sounds like the speaker is proclaiming her membership in the Oldest Profession: "I de ho!"


  1. Interesting t-shirt concept; for what occasions may it be worn? Definitely not on a university campus.......

  2. Nice, but antisocial, message for the shirt.

  3. Well, I have to say that Idaho does have a sort of phallic look to it, as do the panhandle of Oklahoma and the - sadly - flaccid Florida.
