OK, I guess the joke was a little to subtle for some of you. Yes, I know the Buckeyes are in Ohio. One of my old favorites:
A new student comes to a Maine elementary school. He is asked to stand up and give his name and where he came from. He says, "Hi, I'm Bobby Smith, and I'm from Iowa." The class erupts into giggles. The student turns to the teacher and asks, "Why are they laughing?" to which the teacher replies, "Son, I know you just moved here but in Maine, we pronounce it O-HI-O."
Don't mean any offense to Iowans, Mainers, or Ohioans, it's just one of my quirky yet adorable ideosyncracies that I perpetually say Iowa and mean Ohio, and vice versa. It makes me chuckle, that's all.
