Q: What do West Virginian's and Philadelphian's have in common?

A: Not much.

However, they are linked in my stream of consciousness this afternoon as I watch the Phoenix Coyotes continue do what they've done all year - that is, win games no matter what overwhelming conditions are stacked against them.

But, to the point now. Being a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, one of my favorite jokes is:

Where was the toothbrush invented?
West Virginia, of course. Had it been invented anywhere else, they'd have called it a teethbrush!

This joke popped into my head as I was taking in the latest Geico commercial with Mike Green and one of the cavemen (you know, where the former is popping a puck into an empty net, and the latter is talking to the camera from the stands). It occurred to me that only a native of the City of Brotherly (Sh)ove could have come up with the idea for this commercial.

Because no hockey fan base other than Philadelphia's could so readily link together the idea of neanderthals and hockey.


PS - Being an economist, another of my favorite jokes is:

How many Marxist economists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
None. The lightbulb has within it the seeds of its own revolution.

    Isn't this a perfect example of an oxymoron? A Pitts "roethlis" burger making fun of West Virginians - fellow brethren who root for your same Pens and yinz Stillers - who have so much more in common than the rest of us philthy undeserving Phylers phans. What's next, bashing Primanti Bros for making quite possibly the most disgusting sandwich in the history of mankind?
