Whitefish Bay gets "boring" mention on "Napoleon Dynamite"

UPDATE:  As reported by Fox 6's Ted Perry via Twitter one of the writers from "Napoleon Dynamite" is from Whitefish Bay.  

I guess characters on cartoons still read newspapers.

Last night’s episode of "Napoleon Dynamite" on FOX featured its stars reading a print version of a newspaper called The Preston Bugle and reacting to story in which Pedro called the city the "Most Boring in America."

A bystander reacts to the headline by saying, "Most boring city in America, he’s obviously never been to Whitefish Bay, Wis."

Here’s the video.  Interpret this random suburban Milwaukee mention as you will.  (But remember, Whitefish Bay is technically a village not a city.)

Probably has more to do with one of the writers for Napoleon Dynamite, Dan Vebber, being from Whitefish Bay than anything.

the whitefish bay mention has gotten a lot of play considering maybe 16 people in america even watch this show.

The writer is from WB.
