Minnesota jokes about winter help us deal with the challeges we face by laughing at Minnesota winter jokes.
We love to share Minnesota jokes. Winter gives us lots of opportunity to make fun of the ways we cope with our chilly climate. Here are some of our favorite Minnesota winter jokes.
One thing we are known to say is that the cold weather "keeps out the riff-raff." That is not, however, a true representation of Minnesotans.
The other side of the coin (or snowball) is that we are known world-wide for "Minnesota Nice."

The Indians asked their Chief in autumn if the winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing the answer, the chief replied that the winter was going to be cold and that the members of the village were to collect wood to be prepared.
Being a good leader, he then went to the phone, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter going to be cold?" The man on the phone responded, "This winter is going to be quite cold indeed."
So the Chief went back to speed up his people to collect even more wood to be well prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again, "Is it really going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes", the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."
So the Chief went back to his people and ordered them to go and collect every scrap of wood they could find. Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again: "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"
"Absolutely," the man replied, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!"
