MADISON (WKOW) — Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz took to social media to taunt each other over Paul Bunyan’s axe.
The ax goes the winner of the annual border battle football game between the Gophers and the Badgers and went to Minnesota after they won it last fall.
Walz took to Facebook Monday holding the axe and inviting the Badgers to try to take it back when they meet next November.
Evers responded on Twitter, saying, “Dont’ get used to it for God sakes.”
“I really like you. You do a great job as governor of Minnesota, but you look ridiculous holding that ax,” Evers tweeted.
.@GovTimWalz thinks he’s very funny by showing off Paul Bunyan’s axe in Minnesota. November 30, 2019 is coming up fast – enjoy the axe while you still can! The @UWBadgers are comin’ for you. pic.twitter.com/PjF75HcQ6P
