Did You Know?


Rose Nylund: If it were clearer we could see Mount Losenbaden.
Blanche Devereaux: What's Mount Losenbaden?
Rose Nylund: It's kinda like Mount Rushmore, except they sculpted four losers of Presidential elections in the mountainside. Let's see - there was Alf Landon, Wendell Willkie and Adlai Stevenson and Adlai Stevenson.
Blanche Devereaux: Why are there two Adlai Stevensons?
Dorothy Petrillo-Zbornak: Oh, Blanche, isn't it obvious? He lost twice... Oh god - it's making sense!

Yokel Hero (#4.4)
23 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is a very hot time and the conditioner is broken. At the same time Rose is nominated for St. Olaf Woman of the Year award. She is worried she will not get it so her friends Dorothy and Blanche pump up her resume for her. Then they go on a trip to get the award, but when Rose finds it out she doesn't want it anymore. She still gets it as the opponent is disqualified for having a skeleton in her closet, literally, her husband.

A pretty fun journey they had, liked their trip on all forms of transportation. Was just disappointed we didn't get to see St. Olaf after we heard so much about it!
