Considering I've been born and bred in "Wis-con-sin", I really do hate to burst your bubble about Pickles' accent. The people in Tomahawk do not have that type of an Accent. You have to go much further north into the Nort' woods and/or Michigan's Upper Peninsula before you find that accent -- or you can head West to Minnesota and Nort' Dakota. Yes, I left off the "h";s on purpose.
However, Wisconsin has the highest Brandy consumption in the U.S. and unfortunately our Universities think that Halloween and St. Patrick's Day is a good time to get fully and totally Schnockered -- and the students often stay that way for the entire Spring Break. UW-Oshkosh moved their Spring Break just to coincide with the week of The Dear Irish Saint so that no more Windows would get broken in our downtown area.
I adore our little firebrand of a Drummer and wouldn't trade him for the World. I'd be happy to keep him or awhile but I think even Oshkosh would run out of Liquor
