As many of you know, Ohio State fans love their Michigan jokes. Over the past six or so years, we’ve collected quite a few jokes about our favorite team up north. In fact, Michigan jokes probably bring more hits to this blog than any other term searched on Google.
It all started with a simple open thread where I asked people to post their best _ichigan jokes in the comment section. A reader known only as “Webmaster 3000″ left a long list of jokes and we were off and running.
By the next year, the blog was doing well and I hosted the first Michigan Joke contest and actually managed to scrape together a couple of prizes.
Now something of an institution, year three brought a photo to the Michigan Joke mix which resulted in a few good captions. We’ve actually had a couple of photos over the years that just naturally lent themselves to good captions.
But the one (and often more) liners aren’t the only shots we’ve taken at
the whore…I mean _ichigan. I’ve collected a number of examples demonstrating the lameness of that school up north. My quest started with these Michigan jokers featuring a photo from Wolverine blog where they themselves were making fun of their own fans.
Other examples of the lameness of Michigan include video of the O-H-I-O cheer circling their own stadium or the Michigan band overcompensating for the fact that they just can’t complete with TBDBITL. Then there were the t-shirts that on first appearance look like some sort of Michigan Stadium joke until you realize that no, their fans really are that lame.
That’s not to say that their fans don’t get in a few Ohio State jokes every now and then. At the time, I lashed out at that t-shirt but given a few years and yeah, the Buckstach is a classic.
And of course, who can forget the fun we had at the expense of Michigan’s loss to Appalachian State. At one point, we even found ourselves laughing at the school that ended what they thought would be a national championship run during week 1.
As Michigan’s losing streak continued, I even found myself playing tour guide through the wasteland that had become Michigan football.
Even though we may enjoy watching a beer drinking Michigan grandma school a bunch of Michigan kids, a good Michigan joke will always hold a special place in our heart.
So with that folks, let us continue in this great tradition. Post your Michigan Jokes in the comments below.
