Danny Gokey wants you to take your next vacation in Milwaukee
Danny Gokey has filmed a Visit Milwaukee video for the city’s tourism bureau.
Gokey opines Milwaukee must hold more festivals than any other city, which makes me certain he’s never wandered around NYC in the spring/summer through the endless sunglasses-sausage-tshirts street fairs. But its a good thing Milwaukee holds a lot of festivals, because that will most likely be his bread & butter.
I have two friends who briefly lived in Milwaukee and both referred to it as the armpit of the earth. Neither one of them knew the other, so I often wondered whether or not maybe this was a city slogan or something? License plate motto? I didn’t think it could be that bad, after all Laverne & Shirley were from there…and Lenny & Squiggy…and the Fonz. Granted, that was all a soundstage in Hollywood but still, armpit of the earth is pretty bad. I’m sure Milwaukee has its charms. Since I’ve never been there, I can’t make a decision about its status as the earth’s armpit, even if it is the hometown of Pastor Rolex.
