Refresh Your Hate

So, Michigan tomorrow.  We're super-young, pretty banged up, wickedly inconsistent and probably optimistically chart out at the lower echelon of mediocrity.  But it's Michigan. Led by this guy:

One of a million sources of Michigan Hate. Hell, that dude's probably got a million himself.  So let's hear them.  What are your favorite stories of a Michigan Man being a Michigan Man, whatever that means to you.  Or Them.  Anecdotes, Real Life, Bo's Rose Bowl record, liberal image posting, actual actions committed by DickRod himself.  Here, I'll kick it off.  My favorite happened just this summer, when sullivti stepped out of the mgotedium to visit us and drop this gem:

I think you don't have a firm grasp on what the term 'irony' means.

That kicked off a fun Reverse Caption Contest and showed us once again the propensity of a Michigan Man to talk down his nose.  I'm pretty sure the Semanticron got in the last word tho:

We should definitely give you credit here, for the multi-layered quality of your visit. I’d posit that the meaning of Irony is quite nicely displayed when a writer from a blog with a reputation for intellectual arrogance stops in to drop a comment dripping with intellectual arrogance.  However semantically misguided it may be. But that’s one of the beauties of intellectual arrogance, or arrogance of any kind really: its uncanny knack for protecting the wielder against outside realities, like the meanings of words. What is it with Michigan Men, anyway? Is arrogance a requisite pre-disposition up there? This comment wasn’t egregious enough to inspire me to sift through the mgotedium for extra examples, but I remember enjoying a similar exchange over at BHGP that included fun disclosures of a lack of semantic, and literary, understanding by a Michigan blogger.

Give us your best Michigan Man story. Whatcha got?
