OT: Awesome Line about Michigan / Ohio in Glee

Submitted by Huma on September 13th, 2012 at 11:03 PM

My wife is an avid Glee fan and occasionally I catch a scene or two -- anyway, there was an awesome one-liner on the show tonight:

"You ever look at a map? Ohio is like a giant turd that Michigan just can't pinch off."

There was also a reference in a prior episode to Michigan dominating Ohio in recruiting.  See link:

If you ever again use a quote or plot line from Glee or any similar show as the basis for a thread I will campaign the mods so fucking hard to get you bolivian-ed. Regardless of the context, there's a point where certain boundaries, most especially during the season, should not be crossed. And you sir, have just crossed one of those boundaries. I'm sure it's a fine show, and I'm sure it was a humorous line, especially for U of M fans, but please keep this blog sacred by keeping politics, religion, RCMB/MLive type antics and Glee out of it.

This entire thread is spot on -- except for the fellows who are to ardent in their criticism of Glee. It's entirely plausible that the OP occasionally catches "glimpses" of this mysterious, albeit popular, woman-oriented show, and he happened to see a Michigan/Ohio reference when passing through the tv room to grab a beer. Entirely plausible. I suspect he even had a Milwaukee or a Rigid Sawsall in his hand as he paused between jobs, nodding proudly at his wife's feminine interest in a show about a group of misfit kids kicking out the showtunes on the big stage. All good!

The Jane Lynch ad was on the left of my screen and she had a big grin in the pic advertising some type of online college...she approves of this thread.

Basically Girl 1 says to Girl 2, "This is a lot different from what you're used to back in Iowa." Girl 2 responds, "I'm not from Iowa, I'm from Ohio." Girl 1 quips, "Oh...that's even worse."

The conversation was something along those lines.

Only 16 points and even I know better than use the words "Glee" and "Awesome" together on this board.

Maybe some Kate to help put the MGoBlog universe back into  balance...

My wife watches Gossip Girl. I usually chill on the couch and blog during this time. Sometimes I go and make a sandwich. I ate 40 McNuggets on a dare one time. Did you guys hear Red Lobster All-You-Can-Eat Shrimp is back!?!???

I think... I mean, that sounds gay. I just want you to know this is, like, the first conversation of, like, three conversations that leads to you being gay. Like, there's this and then in a year it's like, "Oh, you know, I'm kinda gonna want to get back out there, but I think I like guys," and then there's the big, "Oh, I'm... I'm... I'm a gay guy now."

Glee can make fun of Ohio....but damned if that state has not produced some of the best players and coaches in Michigan football history...so have to give them props for that much.  Also I used to date a girl from Strongsville way back when and she put out nicely.  Here is Bo and Woody


The real "giant turd" IMO is up in East Lansing.

I've seen probably 1 minute and 12 seconds of a Glee episode. I wanted to shoot myself in the face.

And to the OP...you do realize there were two football games on last night right? Pro and college. No excuses.

You do know that "protests" doesn't mean what you think it means, right?  Protest had a completely different meaning in Shakespeare's era, and in the context of Hamlet it has nothing to do with someone complaining about something...

See mom, majoring in English did eventually come in handy!

A friend of mine from HS (and at UM) married the producer of that show (also a UM grad), so thats likely why we're seeing these references.


Still doesn't make me want to watch it, however..... but hey, its just not my bag, baby.

...for what they did to Don't Stop Believin. It was an alright song before, and then they made a really shitty cover of it which eventually eclipsed the Journey version in popularity and seared itself into my brain, never to be dislodged or redeemed.

Also, the commercials for it are simply appalling.

It's about how you spend your precious time as a collection of (mostly) coherent molecules.  I avoid watch anything that features:

 - people who in no way resemble a normal group of people

 - people doing things that in no way are what people normally do

 - overt manipulation of the viewer's concept of what consititutes 'desireable'

 - people collected for purposes of artificial games or public humiliation

While I am a sucker for action movies (violates the first two groundrules),  overall, I'd have to say I'm pretty boring.  But, at least I retain my self-esteem.

I like Glee. So what of it? I am married and we enjoy watching the show. I was a former band and theater geek in high school. 

I have not watched this episode yet because I was recording it on my DVR while I was watching the Bears/Packers game. Woodson's comments after the game on Cutler were fricken hilarious.
