Since I have lived in Minnesota for many years and traveled around a bit I can say that the people in Minnesota are indeed, as Keiller states every Sunday, above average. The people in Minnesota have exploited a loophole in the no smoking law. According to the law, you may smoke indoors if the smoking is part of a theatrical performance (this loophole exists in other states as well). Now this loophole exists because, in the words of Doug Stanhope as he smokes during his stand-up act,
"So that when you watch some faggy Tennessee Williams play, the integrity of the production isn't ruined."
However, Minnesota bars are now having theatrical performances that include the clients. This is indeed the edge of performance art where the entire bar is a stage and all the clientele actors upon that stage. Excelsior to you and your clever stock Minnesota. Put on your best Shakespearean accent and smoke 'em if you got 'em.
