Comments for: Maine’s funny side

People tend to care about what others think of them, right? So when we have the opportunity to learn about outsiders’ perspectives of Maine, it piques our interest. We’re used to hearing people from other states romanticize Maine’s “quaint” towns and laid-back “locals.” But is a… Read More

    Maine is the deep south of the north…the people of this state seem to think that having a plow adds inches to a particular body part, ride around in decades old cars that have spolers (which still doesn’t make sense to me) and have things for this “country gold saturday night” crap.

      But we’re Yankees, and so if you decide to leave….we won’t stop you.

      I haven’t put the plow on yet, but when I do, the only thing to which it will add inches is the pile of snow in the field next to my barn. …and my 62 Buick doesn’t have a spoiler, but Jerry Hatch down the road has one on the back of his MOPAR, and word is he’s a fair-to-middlen race car driver.

      Because none of that happens anywhere else, ever.

            Its an MMOFPS, up to 2000 people per server, 3 empires fighting for control over bases and resources….the battles are amazing.

            You need a DX 11 compatible card I believe, at least 512MB (lol), PhysX support is definitely something you’ll want.

            and planetside2.com or find it on Steam. Its free :)

      Well city folk needs us, cause all they know how to do is push a button. We don’t take much offense to insults because the next big depression, we’ll be eating,plowing snow and driving our decades old cars, while city folk try to figure out which end of a rake you use to shovel snow.

      “spolers” ??? What is a “spoler”? If you meant “spoiler.” Then learn how to spell instead of playing video games.

      SNL comes out of New York…

    I am a frequent watcher of SNL and have been since I was a teenager. Those of you who didn’t get the skit, are apparently not familiar with the program. This skit had much less to do with Maine and much more to do with Cajun Country. They could have based the skit in Vermont, New Hampshire, North or South Dakota, Montana, etc. I personally imagine the writers went with Maine because the Northeast is fairly familiar with our culture and so the ironic twist of having a Cajun courtroom in Stephen King’s backyard was pretty…well…funny.

      Some people just want to be mad, grrrrr

    I think the skit was a round about way of admitting they got the accent wrong with the gay lobstermen bit. But whatever the intent, it was a joke and they weren’t laughing at us. Don’t be so sensitive :)

    Maine should send Tim Sample to SNL on a linguistics mission.
