A friend of a friend of mine was trying to do some yardwork this past weekend, but because he has a well-shaded yard, there was still a pile of snow. He got out the shovel during Saturday's beautiful weather and moved the snow around the yard a bit so it would melt. In the process, he got several mosquito bites. What better way of tell you MUST be from Wisconsin than getting bit by mosquitos while shoveling snow. It inspired me to come up with some more indicators.

If your odometer shows that you've put on over 200,000 miles, and that's just on your snow blower--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever spent an entire day at Fleet Farm picking out just the right wedding dress--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever showed up at church two hours before Sunday mass just to tailgate--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you think the F.B.I. is what dyslexics call Illinoisans--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you didn't know that people from Illinois are actually called Illinoisans--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever put off watering your lawn for a week because your son was using the garden hose to make a beer bong--you must be from Wisconsin.

If despite going "up nort" deer hunting every fall, you wouldn't know a white tail if it bit you on the ass--but you can identify every stripper at Weasel's just from the sight of their lower back tattoo--you must be from Wisconsin.

If accidentally taking a dump in the hood of your blaze orange snowsuit has ever caused you to leave a wedding early--you must be from Wisconsin.

If you've ever removed a foam rubber cheesehead from a loved one to make it easier to close their casket--you definitely must be from Wisconsin.

Police in Oshkosh arrested a 33-year-old woman for running a prostitution operation out of her home while her kid was in school and her husband was at work. She told officers that she used the extra cash she made to pay bills.

At this point, it's unclear as to whether or not the husband knew what was going on when he was away.

Just in case you think your wife may be doing the same thing, we at the Rick and Len offer these: SIGNS YOUR WIFE MIGHT BE A WHORE.

If she wants to rearrange the bedroom to make room for a 50 gallon lube dispenser and a "take a number machine" -- your wife might be a whore.

If a dumpster behind a tire store has less used rubber in it than the wastebasket beside your bed--your wife might be a whore.

If your mattress has been the site of more drilling than the Prudhoe Bay, Alaska Oil Field--your wife might be a whore.

If, while you're at work, your mattress has hosted more foursomes than Augusta National--your wife might be a whore.

If you've found more men in the closet than the Republican party--your wife might be a whore.

If the only thing you've banged in the last several months, is your nuts on the turnstile at your bedroom door--your wife might be a whore.

If she has Hugh Grant's photo on her wall, Eliot Spitzer's credit card on her night stand and Charlie Sheen's handprint on her ass--your wife might be a whore.

If you've found unexplained deposits in both her checking account and your bed--your wife is definitely a whore.

On Tuesday morning's show, we played Guess This. The question was why did the city council of Medina, Ohio have to call an unplanned recess during last month's meeting? The correct answer: members of the council couldn't stop giggling after one of them passed wind.

Here's the actual video. The trouser burps (there are two) are quite audible!
