Questions from a troll. If I may ask?

Having been a troll most of your life, did you find a need to buy all new clothing after moving north?

Why eat near a out house?, or is out house a town?

How long will it be before you say "eh?" at the end of each statement?

These are all good questions. 

First, I have been wearing chamois shirts for most my life.  When I lived as a troll, though, it was seasonal. Fall, Summer  and Spring.  Now that I live where summer is only a week long festival, I can wear my chamois shirts most of the year.  I have pretty much packed my, "God, it's hot!" clothes away and only break them out during our week of summer and when I have to travel south to, say, Sparta or Muskegon during their summer months.

Second.  Concerning an out house.  I could tell you that it was a typo, but you probably wouldn't believe me, but let me say that the flush toilet was introduced not to long ago up here and it is catching on.

Thirdly, (that is how we say it up here).  Ya da sure, eh?  I am sure dat I will never take on an accent while living up here, eh?  Why would you ask me dat, anyway, eh?  Well, dis is all dat I can tink of ta tell, ya, so ya yest come up hear and see foe yoeself, now.

If you cook and eat "V-Meat" on a stick.............you might live in Michigan.   :)

Just a question from someone who is from Texas and never been to Michigan - what's V-meat?  <:(
Hello to the great state of Texas. The answer to your question Sir is venison. V-meat is venison.

OMG!  You eat Bambi?!  :O---:O

Oh, yeah and his father and mother.  We eat them, we skin them and wear clothing made from the, we even make lamps out of their hoofs and hang their heads on the wall. We see them as rodents or vermin with an attitude.  They will walk out in front of your car for no reason other than a death wish or simply out of contempt for humans.  They look pretty, but inside of that skull they are always plotting ways of destroying crops and cars.

Well I might as well admit it I'm the classic yooper wanna-be. I love it up there, the air smells better, the water is cleaner, and the people are the friendliest I've ever met( as long as your spending money). Even thier bucks grow bigger. They know plaid as a color, not a pattern. And most of all they have many beasties roaming the forest.
