Question What percentage of Rose's St. Olaf stories do you think actually happened

Fish throwing little knives at each other, exploding pigs, conceiving a baby while dressed as food products, a relative pooping on stuff while up in a tree. The list goes on and on as did she.

So how many were likely to have happened? Feel free to list ones that were too unbelievable or the ones you think could actually happened as evidence.

However implausible they may have sounded to the outside observer the point was the character believed they all happened, whether she witnessed them at first hand or not.

Some of them weren't as implausible as others, but they all, indeed, were beyond silly. And we love them for it. :-)

my thing with rose is that she was portrayed as a stupid farm girl who came from a small village full of hee haw type hicks. but when her relatives showed up for visits, none of them were "hee haw type" hicks...her mother, her blind sister, Kirsten (both versions), her other daughter bridget, her other sister Holly, her grand daughter. I guess her cousin sven was the only one who fit the st olaf stereotype. and the guys who showed up to announce she won woman of the year (but they weren't relatives).

about her stories: she probably believed they really happened.

I've always assumed that St. Olaf was just a town replete with it's own urban legends and folk lore. Rose was na´ve enough to believe them, because her trusted relatives handed them down to her.

After all, I highly doubt they actually did a Broadway musical with an all chicken cast.

Like the Peter Pan audiences with Tinkerbell, I believe in St. Olaf.
