Iowa State University student Chris Jorgenson tweeted a photo of a slice of cheese between two Pop-Tarts last week and captioned it, “You ain’t from Iowa if you never had one of these.“ The tweet went viral and Iowans were quick to distance themselves from Jordensen’s words. “On behalf of Iowa, this man is not from Iowa. Passing to Wisconsin since they’re the cheese state,“ one wrote. Another declared, “As an Iowan who has been drunk and high at the same time, I know for a fact that I’d never eat something like this.“ Even the Iowa State Police got involved by jokingly tweeting that Jorgensen was under arrest. Jorgensen told The Des Moines Register on Monday that he was just joking and had no idea that his tweet would garner so much attention. “I think I’ve done some damage to the state of Iowa,“ he quipped.
