** Another example is when Peter claimed the Sticks Downey character from ''HappyDays'' was "the only Negro in the state of Wisconsin." This, despite Milwaukee (where ''Happy Days'' took place) being over 40 percent African-American. Then again, this is probably more a shot at the lack of diversity on ''Happy Days'' than a shot at Wisconsin itself.

One time, after getting conned once again he asks rhetorically if he has a sign on his chest that says that he's a simpleton and to take advantage of him before opening his jacket to reveal an "I Love Wisconsin" T-Shirt.

* Woodrow Tiberius "Woody" Boyd from ''{{Cheers}}'', native of Hanover, Indiana. He seems to take to the big city well enough. Though most references to his family paint them as stereotypical rubes, this is subverted in one episode when Woody reveals that they found the pretentious film Diane created about his life in Boston "derivative of Godard." (Fun fact: the character was named "Woody" before Woody Harrelson was cast.)
