you don't have to be from wisconsin to enjoy this blog, but it sure does help.
I could sit around and listen to Milwaukeeans talk about beer ALL DAY LONG.
I miss the Wisco accent.
Pickles the Drummer
Pickles the Drummer plays the drums and was raised in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. He is Irish-American. He speaks with a distinct Wisconsin accent and bears a strong hatred for his older brother, Seth, whom his parents Calvert and Molly always brag about despite his being an ex-con and living above his parents’ garage, among other failings.
I love Metalocalypse. And I love that Pickles the Drummer is from Tomahawk. I love that he’s a nervous alcoholic and talks with a Yooper accent. To me, it is freaking hilarious. For those of you who are not familiar with Tomahawk, I have created a map. The green thumbtack is Tomahawk.
As you can see, Tomahawk is a small town near the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, hence the Yooper accent.
For those of you dying to know what a “yooper” is, we’ll get to it another day. Until then, please click on the map and study up on your Midwestern geography, because I can’t stand it when I tell people I’m from Milwaukee and they say, “oh, Minnesota?” as if they know something.
DON’T BE THAT GUY.
If you’d like to see more of Pickles the Drummer in his native Tomahawk, WI, please watch the episode “Dethwedding.” It’s absolutely hilarious. Metal meets Wisco. How can you go wrong?
You can watch the episode at here at the Adult Swim website. It’s BRUTAL..
This kid’s from Milwaukee! And he rips it up.
