On the sixth day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said, "Today, I am going to create a land called Minnesota."
"It will be a land of outstanding natural beauty; a land of 10,000 beautiful lakes, each one full of fish."
"It shall have tall majestic pines, peacefully flowing rivers, landscapes full of trees, tall grass, and eagles, beautiful blue skies, forests full of bear, deer and moose, rich farmland and fair skinned people."
God continued, "I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make the inhabitants prosper and they shall be known as a most friendly people, people who practice being Minnesota-Nice every day."
"But, Lord," asked Gabriel, "Don't you think you are being too generous to these Minnesotans?"
"Not really," replied God, "Just wait and see the winters I am going to give them."
