“The Golden Girls” had 180 episodes and ran from September 1985 through May 1992. Over those years, the cast created several long-running jokes that had audiences laughing and rolling their eyes.

Most notable on that list are the recountings of St. Olaf. Betty White’s character, Rose Nylund, came from a fictionalized version of a small Minnesotan town with just 400 people.

From the beginning, it was apparent that Rose Nylund’s hometown was not like any other. St. Olaf was home to the Butter Queen competition and a Founder’s Day parade that featured a tuna float made of chrysanthemums.

Though her costars, Bea Arthur and Rue McClanahan, sometimes have trouble keeping a straight face, these stories are all the funnier thanks to their deadpan reactions.
