This is going around Myspace, Its funny. Especially since my fellow Illinoisian kicked some left coast ass. It's good enough to repost. hopefully it will spark a little discussion, or some additions.

Somebody from California apparently wrote the top part, but somebody from Illinois came back and put them on their asses at the bottom. And whoever that was, GOD BLESS YOU!
