If you look at a map, Michigan and Wisconsin look like mittens and he lives somewhere on the thumb. I happen to live somewhere near the wrist of Wisconsin!

I guess you need to be from Michigan to know about the mitten thing. I didn't know about Wisconsin either .

The standard way to show a fellow Michigander where some place is in the lower peninsula is to hold out your hand with the thumb stuck out and the other fingers together to form a mitten. Then just point to the area in question. The people in the northern lower call the people that live south of them down staters. The upper peninsula residents call the people in the lower trolls because they live below the bridge/south of the bridge that connects the two. Like the troll under the bridge in the children's story.
