I really like teasing my friends that live just south of my place in Missouri. This place is called Arkansas! Southern Missouri and North Arkansas share many things -- mud between our toes because we do not like to wear shoes, The wonderful Ozark mountains, nasal twang when speaking, similar likes in music etc. Some of you may know that the University of Arkansas mascot is the Razorback hog! Some of my friends at the University of Missouri working in the genetics labs have developed a new strain of fish that they called a HOGfish which was accidentally released in the White River in AR. I think that this will replace the now mascot for Arkansas Razorbacks. photo below.
