Smelling the Dairy Air


A Milwaukee newspaper columnist says he had an unpleasant experience while on vacation recently in Milford.

Mike Nichols says that a Target store was selling a T-shirt that proclaimed "Wisconsin -- Smell the Dairy Air."

"We Wisconsinites, I am sorry to have to report here today, are Target Corporation's idea of America's new whoopee cushion," writes Nichols, who made some calls and found the T-shirt is also sold in Target stores in other states.

"So there you have it, the straight poop. People everywhere from Alabama to Minnesota to Massachusetts are buying shirts made in Guatemala that extol the rear air quality of Wisconsin," he writes in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
