So, What Should Be in the Missouri Version of Katy Perry's "California Gurls"?

Have you heard Katy Perry's "California Gurls"? Dumb question; of course you have. The song is everywhere this summer. Of course, the parodies are already rolling in, including this one called "Pennsylvania Guys" by Sloppy Secondz. Even if you're not from the state, it's pretty funny. (Sample lyrics: "Pennsylvania guys, we're unforgettable/ Denim shorts and cotton tank top/ Deer heads starting at you in the living room.")

This made the wheels start turning in my head: What should be included in the chorus of the Missouri version of this song? What makes Missouri, well, Missouri? Some ideas:

Toasted ravioli dipped in pasta sauce
Provel cheese all melted on top
Ted Drewes after -- yup, I bought a concrete
And gooey butter cake -- oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh

Or perhaps:

Albert Pujols homering to win the game
Drunk Cards fans, spilling their Bud
Can't wait to see what Mike Shannon will say next
Did that make any sense? What? Did you hear what I heard?
