Former Governor of the great state of Delaware, David Penrose Buckson, died at the spry age of 96.

This guy seems sooooo boring. Almost as boring as the state of Delaware.

He was born in Delaware.  He grew up in Delaware.  He went to school at the University of Delaware.  He became the Attorney General of Delaware.  He became Lieutenant Governor of Delaware.  Then he became the Governor of Delaware.

Jesus, go to fuckin’ Maryland every now and then!

Delaware is known for little more than being boring as fuck.  

It is also known as a haven for credit card companies.  Companies like Bank of America, Chase, Barclays, and ING Direct all call Wilmington their home.  The reason for this is that in the 80’s, Delaware passed laws that let them charge as much interest as they wanted to.

He even looks like a Penrose.

So, if you’re having trouble getting out of credit card debt, you can thank then Governor Pierre DuPont.  …And you shitty spending habits.

Which brings us to another industry they are known for: Chemicals.  DuPont is also centered in Wilmington.  How evil is Dupont?  The sponsored NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon for 21 years.

Evil!

So: bottom line: Delaware sucks.  It doesn’t Texas-suck.  But half the state is trying to get you in debt, the other half is actively destroying the environment (and sponsored Jeff Gordon).

And I guess someone’s gotta run the joint.  Might as well be a guy with “Penrose” as a middle name.

This hit goes to: Wes!  He’s now tied for 2nd place and just 10 points behind the leader.

Three months in and only nine of the 16 lists have had hits.

Happy pooling,
