... And Then God Created West Virginia

Today is West Virginias Birthday. Yep June 20, 1863!!! Now most people that read here don't like any attempts I make at political statements. Not sure why but I couldn't resist this little West Virginia funny for today.

In the beginning God created the earth and when he was done the Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put life on it… I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

 "Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things. God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's West Virginia , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from West Virginia are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things"

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance...."

God smiled, "Right next to West Virginia is Washington , DC . Wait till you see the idiots I put there."
