Yoopers and Trolls
This wooden handmade handicraft was purchased at our local farmer's market.
The top part is the Upper Peninsula or U.P.
The leather hinge is the Mackinac Bridge.
And the lower part is the lower part of Michigan.
People that live in the U.P are Yoopers.
Yoopers refer to the lower part of Michigan as downstate.
Yoopers refer to the people that live downstate as Trolls because they live below or UNDER the bridge.
It's all in good fun.
