And God created Ohio

On the sixth day, God turned to Archangel Gabriel and said, 

“Today I am going to create an area of land called Ohio .

It will be a land of outstanding natural beauty.


It shall have tall hills and rolling plains full of game and eagles, 

beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful with bass and streams full of trout, 

forests full of deer and turkeys,  Valleys with fertile soil 

with an abundance of nutrients to grow things, and rivers teaming with fish.”


God continued, “I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make 

the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Ohioans 

and they shall be known as the most friendly people on the earth.”

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “don’t you think you are being too 

generous to these Ohioans?”

“Not really,” replied God..     “Just wait and see the kind of 

winters I am going to give them!”
