Look Closely at this ‘Michigan’ Trivet – That’s Wisconsin
Want to show off a little homestate pride by displaying this trivet of Michigan sold by Bed Bath and Beyond? Too bad that's Wisconsin, not Michigan.
The trivet, like a pot holder, is made by Thirstystone and currently listed for sale by BedBathandBeyond clearly shows an outline for Wisconsin standing in place of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. That's Green Bay where the Thumb should be.
At least the Upper Peninsula is correct - so there's that.
The product is described as:
Show off your home state pride at meal time with this handy and handsome Thirstystone Michigan Upper Peninsula Shaped Cork/Rope Trivet in Natural. Use it as a decorative and educational way to protect your tabletop surfaces from cold or hot dishes.
And is sells for $9.99 if you want your own shape of Wisconsin labeled as Michigan.
