This is a very funny parody of the realities of life amongst the real yoopers, not the phony yoopers who live near academia at the colleges in The Soo, Marquette and Houghton.

If you have ever spent time in a deer camp, you will recognize all the truths they joke about (drinking, cardplaying, farting, sacred clothing and food, etc. etc.).
