According to Wikipedia (which is the lazy Lunch Ladies go-to research tool):
"The cultural characteristics of "Minnesota Nice" include polite friendliness, an aversion to confrontation, a tendency toward understatement, a disinclination to make a fuss or stand out, emotional restraint, and self-deprecation."
After learning about "Minnesota Nice" the Ladies knew they were golden:
Said Seretta, baking up some suspect dishes to be eaten on a stick and hawked at the Minnesota State Fair: "Imagine how thrilled we were when we found out the Twin Cities Film Fest HAD to say yes to programming us because of Minnesota Nice? Best luck we've had all year!"
LouAnne, whipping up some suspect Hotdish she plans to unload on the fest, nodded: "You could see the dread on the programmer's faces when we demanded they choose us, but Minnesota Nice won out : "Uff-da, okay you Lunch Ladies... sure, you betcha."
BOTH: "Thanks Twin Cities Film Fest for the selection!"
*The Lunch Ladies can't wait to get to Minnesota to trade Lutefisk recipes with Norwegians but are especially excited because their creator Clarissa Jacobson hails from the Land of Sky Blue Waters -"We are huge admirers of any state that could breed such a sick-minded individual."
The Twin Cities Film Fest (TCFF) is a Minneapolis–based 501(c)3 non–profit year-round arts organization that culminates in a major mainstream film festival in the fall each year at the ShowPlace ICON Theatre. TCFF aims to show audiences the best films the industry has to offer while also showcasing the Twin Cities as a hot spot to premiere work.
