    because of the joke where a guy walks into a bar with a dog. He bets the bartender the dog can talk. "What's on the top of a house?" "Roof!" "How does sandpaper feel?" "Ruff!" Who's the greatest baseball player of all time?" "Roof!"

    The bartender throws them out. The dog looks at the guy and says, "Maybe I should have said Lou Gherig?"

    One of my dad's favorite jokes...I'm sure he's still laughing at it.

    It's not just a zip code, it's an attitude.
