Each state has their own stereotypes that drive it's residents absolutely crazy (I would know, I'm from Jersey)...Whether they are true or not it really doesn't matter; people still associate these stereotypes with its respective state. Here are the worst stereotypes of each of the 50 states: 1. Arkansas Outsiders, when they see an Arkansan indoors, think \u201cWow, those people have\u00a0houses?\u00a0 Movoto Sorry, Arkansas, we just assumed you all hang\u00a0out in nature with a gun at your side and only emerge when you have to replenish your beer supply. 2. Hawaii School uniforms can be a real drag, you know. Knee-length skirts, tucked-in shirts, and neatly polished shoes, all for the sake of a distraction-free environment. Pinterest Then, you come to a joyous realization and sigh in relief: At least I\u2019m not Hawaiian. The stereotype is that people there have\u00a0to wear leis and grass skirts and coconut bras \u2014 that\u2019s got to be tough. And I\u2019m too self-conscious for that mess. 3. Nevada Hey, don\u2019t look so guilty. We\u2019re all sinners in Las Vegas! It\u2019s the state\u2019s most precious resource. vitalvegas.com In fact, Nevadans don\u2019t even know what video games are. They are always giving slot machines just one last spin and creaming everyone at poker. Moreover, if you don\u2019t graduate high school and become either a showgirl or a blackjack dealer, everyone will question what you\u2019ve done with your life. 4. Alabama Pure, unfiltered Southern pride courses through every Alabamans\u2019 veins. This is perhaps especially true when Crimson Tide seasons rolls around, where people get obsessive over supporting the University of Alabama football team. World Wide Interweb From the looks of it, nobody gets off light for Roll Tide treason. You out yourself as a non-believer, and you pay the ultimate price. No, a wad of cash and several cases of beer won\u2019t do it. You\u2019d better hit the highway, branded a traitor, and show your fellow statesmen what you\u2019ve done! 5. California \u00a0Because the state is the home of the bustling entertainment hub known as Hollywood, we all assume\u00a0that California is one large spotlit stage across which acclaimed actors and musicians strut. Vince Bucci\/Getty Images Everyone passes Beyonce on the street on a regular basis and celebrities are everywhere. Also, it\u2019s assumed that you have at least a dozen movie stars living on your street. 6. Alaska As far as anyone is concerned, Alaska is just a\u00a0freaking cold place to be. Anyone who lives there\u00a0is perpetually\u00a0wearing winter coats or just is crazy about the cold.\u00a0 Evans\/Three Lions\/Getty Images So how do all these snow people manage, we clueless outsiders wonder? Maybe, outsiders muse, Alaskans\u00a0hunker down in the heatless igloo and watch the Northern lights glow outside the window? Also, be sure you\u2019re plenty strong enough to wrestle those wolves and bears for your dinner. 7. Colorado Yup, you know it: Colorado is overrun with stoners who spend every night wolfing down Taco Bell and whole pizzas.\u00a0 The Smoking Bud The stereotype is that everyone is high. Also, taste-test that pink-frosted and sprinkle-adorned brownie before giving it to your kid. 8. Connecticut Ah, Connecticut: a clean, blue-skied haven for rich people. Business Insider Well, a haven outside New Haven, of course. Because everyone knows that anything that Yale\u2019s shadow fails to touch is scary-dangerous-no-good. 9. Delaware What happens when you mention the state of Delaware outside Delaware? Suddenly, the snooze-zones in the Midwest can say smugly, \u201cWhat is there for those poor people to do?\u201d Tumblr \/ Delawareness Either that or they looked puzzled before responding in their innocence: \u201cDelaware? What\u2019s a Delaware? Sounds like a clothing store in a rundown strip mall trying desperately to sound high-end and exclusive.\u201d 10. Florida What\u2019s not to love about the Sunshine State? When it\u2019s not bathed in endless ethereal light, it\u2019s raining. And the raindrops are shaped like Mickey Mouse or something, just to give tourists their money\u2019s worth. Funny Photo But most important: everybody knows how to fight off a big, bad gator. Even the retirees who escape experiencing the state\u2019s warmer climes\u00a0here. Gator-Fighting lessons come with the complimentary orange juice at the welcome center, right? 11. Georgia If you\u2019ve ever spotted a Georgian driving on the highway, the first thing you probably spotted was the peach on their license plate. Sean Gallup\/Getty Images That is, of course, because all the average Georgian thinks about is peaches. In fact, that one Georgian probably grew up on Peach Tree Drive and attended Peach Orchard\u00a0Elementary, after while they moved on to Peach Grove High School. Of course, attendance from December to February or so was spotty because snow is scary in Georgia. 12. Idaho What else is there to say but potato? Idaho Potato Commission That\u2019s how Idahoans greet one another, right? It\u2019s how they greet each other. It\u2019s their first language. First thing on their resumes: fluent in potato. 13. Illinois Sure, everyone knows about the great state of Illinois. There\u2019s Chicago there\u2019s more Chicago. Flickr \/ Ken Lund Oh, you live in Springfield? What a fancy name for Chicago! You either live on a farm or in a cramped apartment in the heart of Chicago. If you\u2019re an Illinoisan who doesn\u2019t fall into either of those categories, you don\u2019t exist. You belong in the same void as Delaware and out-of-shape Californians. 14. Indiana \u00a0Dude, nobody cares about your Lexus or Mercedes. stubert.info At least, not in Indiana, where the traffic is just a languid sea of tractors. The Walmart parking lot? Yep, just row after row of tractors. 15. Iowa You can keep your potatoes, Idaho. Iowa has one thing you don\u2019t: corn! Pinterest But not just any corn: an endless ocean of it, sometimes punctuated by a crooked scarecrow or a creepy hooded figure who just wants to sell you more corn. Also, Iowa boasts a robust economy of farmers. If you\u2019re an Iowan who is anything but a farmer, you are lying, obviously. 16. Kansas The timeless classic \u201cThe Wizard of Oz\u201d was not a work of fiction, after all. National Weather Service No Kansan is safe. They may not have to fear the petty theft of the city, but they know that in every shadowy valley, a tornado lurks, ready to\u00a0pounce and whisk them\u00a0away to a faraway land at any moment.\u00a0 17. Kentucky No shoes, no service? Kentucky accepts the challenge. Pinterest When they are not traipsing through green pastures in their sleepy rural towns, Kentuckians are thought to be patronizing every business while barefoot. Easier to feel the bluegrass between your toes that way, we reckon. 18. Louisiana Louisiana is not solid ground. It\u2019s just one big boot-shaped swamp. Laughter is the best medicine If you\u2019re not idling your\u00a0days away in the murky goop sipping sweet tea and strumming your banjo, then you simply aren\u2019t doing Louisiana right. Also, real Louisiana men fight\u00a0those skeeters head on! Be an itchy mess with pride. 19. Maine Ahhh, it\u2019s come to attack! Nah, don\u2019t be silly. In Maine, lobsters are just cute red puppies with massive claws and big bug eyes. FunCage Do you want something other than an ocean creepy crawler for dinner? That\u2019s just too bad, Karen. In Maine, you eat your lobster bisque or you starve. 20. Massachusetts \u201cPawk ya cah in Havahd yahd!\u201d they shout in your ear. You listen to the r\u2019s. They remain buried\u00a0in that coarse accent. Town Market Andover 21. Michigan Michigan prides itself on being home to the famous Motor City: Detroit.\u00a0 BSN Denver But many know the city (and by default, the state) as a glorified war zone, with shootings at every turn. And even you don\u2019t live in Detroit, you will be sorely out of place without a gun. 22. Minnesota Why won\u2019t these people stop smiling at me? Why are they so darned nice? It\u2019s a plot, a plot I tell you! Dialect Blog What do these people want with me, you ask yourself again and again. Must be those heavy clouds bearing down on them. When the sun comes out and the snow reveals vegetation, at last, watch the passive aggressiveness fly. 23. Mississippi Feeling fat? Supposedly if you head to Mississippi, it\u2019s said that you\u2019ll\u00a0likely have the lowest BMI of anyone around. Pinterest And don\u2019t try bringing your fancy healthy eating around these parts, okay? Deep fried butter could count as a vegetable if it was fried in vegetable oil. Doughnuts are a whole grain. It\u2019s science, really. 24. Missouri The people of Missouri are known for being nice. REALLY nice. Almost a bit too nice. Flickr \/ kielman316 They are as loyal to their sports teams as they are to their \u201cgood\u201d camo baseball cap. 25. Montana \u00a0Do people even live in Montana? Here, the bears are in charge. Missoulian They run the economy. In the Winter, though, they tend to sleep in a bit too often. 26. Nebraska Known for having cornfields as far as the eyes can see, Nebraska is thought of as one big open field. Its residents seem to be\u00a0obsessed with the stuff too. Robert Laberge\/Getty Images Restrictions Be sure to get a delicious meal at Runza while you\u2019re there. It might be your only break from the corn. 27. New Hampshire What is there to say about New Hampshire other than it\u2019s pretty much just everything that wouldn\u2019t fit inside Massachusetts or Connecticut? Pinterest Of course, you can enjoy the lack of sales tax and personal income tax. That is until you remember you might have to sell either your soul or your first born to keep your home. But hey, there are pretty leaves in the fall. 28. New Jersey They\u2019re loud, they\u2019re proud, and they are desperate to prove to you how Italian they are. The Odyssey Online They also don\u2019t play it safe when it comes to hairdos. The more bombastic and pliable with hair gel, the better. Such style goes great with thoroughly-browned fake tan skin from all these they get. 29. New Mexico New Mexicans don\u2019t even have day job, obviously. They just spend the day watching the sky for aliens, who definitely frequent the Land of Enchantment. I am New Mexico Don\u2019t forget that every meal has to include the state\u2019s sacred green chile. Without it, we\u2019re afraid your food is tainted, utter garbage. 30. New York Remember: New Yorkers are superior to you in every way. Everywhere Once That\u2019s why they don\u2019t want to greet you on the street\u2013because they don\u2019t want to waste their time on such a peasant.\u00a0They\u2019ve got people to see and things to do, like attend their daily \u201cWhy We\u2019re Better\u201d convention in the crown of the Statue of Liberty. 31. North Carolina If you can read, congratulations, you are ahead of pretty much everyone. CraveOnline Bonus points if you can write your name and be only one\u00a0or two letters off. But we gave you the gift of flight, North Carolina reminds us. So who needs any of that fancy book learnin\u2019? 32. North Dakota Found your way into North Dakota? Turn around. You messed up. Go back before you bore yourself to death. MemeSuper Wait, are those people out there on the plains? Nope, just a mirage. Carry on. 33. Ohio Election year rolls around. Ohioans perk up. Yay, we matter at last! Flickr \/ nycscout Election year ends and visitors expect to be bored by\u00a0perpetual farms\u00a0and threats of eternal hellfire. There\u2019s enough Midwestern hospitality to go around, folks. 34. Oklahoma Walmart is an icon. We associate it with convenience, consumerism, American excess. Chris Hondros\/Getty Images So, congratulations, Oklahomans. You should wear your title of most fervent Walmart shoppers with pride. After all, we amateurs just run in real quick when we realize we\u2019d run out of milk on our way home from work. Oklahomans are sure to dress up for the occasion. 35. Oregon Okay, Oregon, we get it. You\u2019re quirky. 9Gag We\u2019re sorry, Portland. We know it\u2019s not just a phase. So you can stop making your poor buildings suffer from your identity crisis. 36. Pennsylvania Great, stuck at the stop light next to an Amish dude. Again. Pinterest At least when you\u2019re driving through, you\u2019ll remember Pennsylvania\u2019s\u00a0small town names. Because they are known for being a hilarious bunch. 37. Rhode Island Rhode Island is the smallest state in the Union. And like nagging older siblings, those from states twice its size enjoy teasing Rhode Islanders simply for living someplace usually no larger than a penny on a classroom map. Rhode Island Monthly But\u00a0little Rhode Island knows that one day it will grow up to outshine all the rest. Or it\u2019ll just comfort itself by asking itself who wants to be big and important anyway. 38. South Carolina Daring to be different in South Carolina? Here\u2019s a tip: don\u2019t. Spencer Platt\/Getty Images In a sea of pickup trucks, be the saddest, run-down pickup truck of them all and you\u2019ll fit right in. 39. South Dakota South Dakota can feel superior to North Dakota for one reason: it, too, is nothing, but it\u2019s nothing with a really cool hunk of rock with four presidents\u2019 heads protruding from it. Getty Images All twenty of its citizens live right across from the monument, obviously. What a nice thing to wake up to every morning: staring right into Lincoln\u2019s stony eyes, knowing he\u2019s judging you big time. 40. Tennessee The minute you cross the Kentucky border into Tennessee, you will hear country music blaring from every direction. KFOR.com Just look out your window. To your right, a Southern beauty poses in her Daisy Dukes and crop-top in the bed of a Ford pickup truck. To the right, some bearded guy nurses his fifth beer and sing-moans of a broken heart. Also, drive carefully: cowboy wannabes are always crossing. 41. Texas Let\u2019s get the mantra out of the way right now: Everything is bigger in Texas. Stephen Dunn\/Getty Images For instance, drinking until you don\u2019t know who you are anymore is big in Texas. And attempting to operate a gun when you have no idea what you\u2019re doing is big in Texas as well. As long as you have an arsenal of guns, it doesn\u2019t matter if you know how to use them or not. You\u2019re safe and no one can ever question your Americanness, ever. 42. Utah Utahans, they\u2019re gonna ask you. So instead of getting all huffy when you answer, have fun with it. uberHumor Why yes, I am a Mormon. Just wait right here while I bring one of my five wives over here to greet you. She\u2019s the voice of the rest. Once they pick up on your sarcasm, feel free to dole out the education they sorely lack. Or just skip right to that part if you are feeling particularly testy. Or just ignore them altogether, since you can afford to be selective about whom you acknowledge since people make the same stale Mormon jokes at you a minimum of 100 times daily. 43. Vermont Don\u2019t mind those Vermonters. They\u2019re still waiting for the day Canada absorbs them whole. Jordan Silverman\/Getty Images In the meantime, they will be in the country reveling in their New England charm, chugging maple syrup by the gallon. Then they\u2019ll\u00a0throw a pool party and invite all the goats and livestock they know. 44. Virginia Outsiders may find themselves asking: what are they teaching those children in those schools? Imgur And Virginians will respond: \u201cOnly the essentials, of course. Now try a sip of this moonshine and shut up.\u201d 45. Washington It\u2019s true: it rains in Washington. A lot.\u00a0 Pinterest In Seattle, dodging the rain is a classic pastime. And don\u2019t be caught dead with an umbrella. Umbrellas are for wimps. 46. Washington, D.C. Not technically a state but it\u2019s the capital and where \u201cthe magic happens.\u201d Its politically-obsessed denizens are thought to be addicted to news and think they know their stuff. CNN.com Just stick a quarter in us, and you\u2019ll get a randomly-generated political rant. 47. West Virginia Feel free to make your West Virginian jokes. These topics are fair game: their dental hygiene, their lack of education, their\u00a0lackluster infrastructure, etc. Imgur \/ Sirius6300 Do not even think about broaching these subjects: the quality of the farms and the animals that live there. It also might not be a good idea to make fun of anyone\u2019s sibling\u00a0with all the sensitivity to incest jokes. 48. Arizona You come to the Grand Canyon and some stunning views of cacti, sand dunes, and sun-bathing reptiles. They stay because\u2014they really like deserts and sweating their rear ends off when the rest of the country is enjoying a white Christmas. uberHumor Nothing like miles and miles of the scorching sun. But hey, it\u2019s considered a victory if you take a bite of anything without getting a mouthful of sand, right? 49. Wisconsin In Wisconsin, your food and beverage options are limited. Me.me But don\u2019t worry. The locals never get sick of cheese and beer, and you won\u2019t either. If you do, kindly get out. 50. Maryland Think you\u2019ve escaped the crustacean commotion of Maine by retreating to Maryland? Boy, do we have some bad news for you. Mark Wilson\/Getty Images But hey, if you still can\u2019t stomach the thought of eating a bug from the sea: drench it in butter, sprinkle on some Old Bay, close your eyes, and imagine it\u2019s a very chewy chicken tender. 51. Wyoming Simply put, everyone is a cowboy. RoadTrip America And Wyomingites won\u2019t let you forget it. So come down to the saloon, swing open the wooden doors, and shout \u201cYee-haw!\u201d Because there\u2019s surely nothing else to do here. Credits:\u00a0icepop.com Did you agree with this list?
