Ways to make fun of the 50 states

By their food:

(Colorado’s is my favourite: “The cowboy cookie is a chocolate-chip cookie to which someone wisely added rolled oats and shredded coconut, and to which someone else very stupidly added chopped pecans. Neither pecans nor coconuts nor oats come from Colorado. Nor does chocolate. Nor do cowboys, really. You know what does come from Colorado? Confused looks and shrugged shoulders when you ask people what their state’s signature foodstuff is. This is because, at any given time, 102 percent of the people in Colorado are vacationing Californians in bubble-vests and hiking boots. Real Colorado-types (Coloradans? Coloroadies? Colorectal cancers?) eat snow, and don’t exist.”)

50 state stereotypes in 2 minutes:

As labeled by an Australian:

Buzzfeed sexiness ratings: I have no comment here except to say that I have lived in all four quadrants of this graph.  Make of that what you will!!

50 state mottos:Colorado: If You Don’t Ski, Don’t Bother”

And another version of 50 state mottos: My favourite? “Georgia: We Put The “Fun” In Fundamentalist Extremism”

Wikipedia’s list of state nicknames: I like “Connecticut, land of steady habits.”

Revisions to the 50 state birds: My favourite is: “Delaware. Official state bird: blue hen chicken: You know what? I’m not so mad about this. Whatever, it seems to have some connection to you, even though “blue chicken” plugged into a thesaurus means “sad wuss.””
