… someone said, “You're not a real Inland Northwesterner if you don't take inordinate pride in the off-road mud caked on your vehicle's exterior”?
A) I'd say “Sure, pal” and take my leave.
B) I would suggest that the speaker has a somewhat limited view of life's possibilities.
C) I would agree.
D) I would ask the speaker if he lives in a beer commercial.
E) I would politely point out that the word “inordinate” undercuts the argument the speaker is advancing.
