The Funny Truth About Each State…

One of the best things about America is just how diverse and awesome each of these 50 states are. And that diversity leads to some hilarious observations about one state from another states perspective.

So put your thick skin on as we view the side splitting way in which the rest of America loves to poke fun of your clichéd faults. Real or Imagined

Just wait until you see North Carolina, Texas and West Virginia.  Did we go to far?

Alabama…

If you live in Alabama, you better not skip church on Sunday. Seems easy to remember, right? Well, it’s a lot easier when you put up a quality crafted sign as you can see here. Even though the Devil seems to be holding a scythe; it’s not doing that overgrown weeds around the sign any good. We can only imagine this sign is located near a Church. We hope…

California…

Then of course; there is the state of California. This illustration clearly depicts the kind of weather you can expect when you visit, year round. Californians spend their time divided between electing robots from the future to public service and not having enough water even though they are right next to the ocean.

Alaska…

Thinking about moving to Alaska? Well, think again. See this furry little guy above? His name is Stubbs. He happens to be the MAYOR of a town in Alaska called “Talkeetna”. For the last fifteen years, since he won the election in a landslide. One thing is for sure – he’s done more to get rid of mice than any other candidate. Perhaps he’s attempting to “Meow America Great Again.”

Kentucky…

imgflip.com

Here you can see a Kentucky woman giving birth on a 50cc motorbike. We assure you that not only did this happen; but at least one person in Kentucky decided they wanted to remember it forever by taking a picture. Shortly after this photo was taken; they drove straight to the capital to receive keys to the city.

Arkansas…

pinterest.com

Welcome to the state of Arkansas; where 9 out of 10 tourists have a pretty mouth. If you want to know about the Arkansas – just read this sign. If you are from the state of Arkansas; ask your friend to read it to you.

Colorado…

pinterest.com

There’s only one reason to go to Colorado – that is of course, these tiny ceramic pots. Every since Colorado legalized the recreational use of tiny ceramic pots in 2012, their economy has taken a sharp upturn. Since then, over 35 million dollars has been allocated to new Schools and prescription overdoses have dropped over 25%. It’s amazing what a little pot can do.

Connecticut…

homesnacks.net

Meanwhile in Connecticut…they are apologizing for George W. Bush. Why apologize for putting “food on your family” ? Everyone knows that “once you fool me once, I can’t get fooled again, see.” What does that mean? It is a mystery. There is however a little known fact about George W. Bush that when he grew up in Connecticut; 7-11 was a part time job.

Delaware…

memecdn.com

Here is a pie chart describing 100% of the thoughts people have when they encounter the state of Delaware. Where is Delaware? No one knows. What does Delaware do? It still baffles scientists. The closest most have been was when they did those state quarters a few years back. Good times…

Florida…

pinterest.com

Florida is famous for gators. ‘Gators, ‘gators and more ‘gators. Ride a ‘gator to Disneyland? That’s an everyday activity in Florida. What is Publix? If you’re not reading this from the back of a ‘gator; you probably wouldn’t get it. It’s a Florida thing.

Georgia…

imgur.com

The state of Georgia…where you may “git” gotten. Assuming you can read this sign. If you for some reason can not read this sign, they may not “git” you. We don’t dig those Georgia peaches.

Hawaii…

onlyinyourstate.com

In the remote island state of Hawaii; things like “surfing” and “luaus” are most important. You may have trouble getting service at a store; but wouldn’t you feel the same way if you lived on an island paradise? Once you’ve had to put on a wet suit and grab a surfboard just to speak to a manager; you really don’t care enough to pursue it. Surfs up, anyways…

Idaho…

Wikimedia.org

Remember last week when you were eating dinner and the potatoes on your plate caught your eye; for one brief moment in time you felt overwhelmed with awe and respect for the potato? Yeah, neither does anyone else. Unless of course; you happen to be from the state of Idaho. Idaho is home to the only ( We hope ) “Potato Museum” where people from Idaho can congregate and pay homage and respect to a giant potato. Complete with butter and sour cream, of course.

Illinois…

funniestmemes.com

Illinois, best known as the state where Chicago does it’s thing, is always in competition with Indiana. This billboard in Illinois shows that when it comes to taxes; Indiana plays dirty. They also use a lot of puns.

Arizona…

pinterest.com

Welcome to Arizona; do you want to build a snowman? Too bad. All you will find in this state is a landscape that resembles the surface of Mars and a plethora of tumbleweeds – which you can of course craft into anything you want. Except snow. You can’t have snow.

Indiana…

onlyinyourstate.com

We have arrived at Indiana. The state that time forgot. Aside from sounding a little similar to “bandana”; not much is known about this elusive state. Perhaps that’s because they still live in the 1800’s and there are no phones to contact them with.

Iowa…

imgur.com

Iowa. What else can we say about Iowa? No, really. We’re asking.

Kansas…

imgur.com

Kansas, the “state that hills forgot”. Aside from being scientifically flatter than a pancake ( seriously ); there are 1,000’s of jokes about Kansas. Unfortunately, all of them are corny. Kansas is also famous for the movie “Wizard of Oz”; where a Kansas girl gets lost in a place with only one bright yellow road.

Louisiana…

favoritememes.com

Remember those ‘gators from Florida? Well, these are their ‘gator cousins. They populate the side of Louisiana highways and really cut down on hitchhiking. A few miles down the road another sign reads: “Please, stop throwing your cigarette butts out the window – the ‘gators keep smoking them and we’re trying to get them to quit.”

Maine…

imgur.com

Maine: the birthplace of the ugly beach. The state of Maine does not have regular beaches- they offer instead a selection of giant ugly boulders to welcome you into the water. For a state that is big on hunting; they sure do make it tough for the deer to swim away.

Maryland.

imgur.com

Maryland is a state known for cold weather. Just look at this picture. It may appear like a still frame from the movie “The Shining”; but it’s actually the Marlyand state flag.

Massachusetts…

pinterest.com

It’s the state you’ve been misspelling since you were 6 years old: Massachusetts. They’ve got their own way of warning people about “stawm’s” there- including using “creative” adjectives to describe storms. Wicked.

Michigan…

frank151.com

In this horrifying mesh of flesh and machine comes straight out of Michigan. We’re not sure if it was the extra literal “horse power” that drove them to this; but it definitely says “I hate raccoons but I also want to be inside of one when I travel”.

Minnesota…

imgur.com

Minnesota winters are the only thing the characters from “Game of Thrones” are afraid of. They also host a monthly igloo building class and are constantly asking Congress for more mittens.

Mississippi…

frank151.com

Mississippi doesn’t play games when it comes to smoking meat. They “go big or go home” and since they’re already home; they might as well go big…

Missouri…

pinterest.com

Missouri is not just that state your cousin refuses to move away from- it’s also smack dab in the middle of “tornado alley”. That’s not enough to deter the “good ol” boys of Missouri from checking out “tornaders” however; as it has become the official state sport.

Montana…

favoritememes.com

This actually happened in Montana and it was so commonplace that it did not even make the evening news. You have to respect a state where the phrase “Can you ask the buffalo to pass the salt” fits right in. You have to keep the cowboy hat on though or else the buffalo loses all respect for you.

Nebraska…

pinterest.com

In Nebraska; you may see this in your backyard. It could be your nosey neighbor “Bill”; using your hot tub wthout permission.  Unfortunately for this man; only seconds after this picture was taken he fired a shot and slid backwards across his hot tub and knocked over his beer. That’s just Nebraska, though.

Nevada…

pinterest.com

After the Nevada Lobster Wars of the 1800’s; they were banned forever from the state. Although many things do remain legal there; this particular seafood isn’t one of them. Fortunately, crabs are still available.

New Hampshire…

pinterest.com

This photo of Harrison Ford alongside Leonardo DeCaprio and a young Miley Cyrus serve as a good reminder just how cold the winters can get in the state of New Hampshire. The snowmen there are said to be 15 feet tall and sometimes come to life to sing and destroy small villages.

New Jersey…

imgur.com

Remember watching that show “Jersey Shore” go off air and then celebrating that it was gone forever? Sadly, it still left quite the impact on the state of New Jersey. It is said that 100% of climate change is caused by the hairspray from this state and the lasting impacts of residual hairspray will spike the hair of thousands of future generations to come.

New Mexico…

onsizzle.com

New Mexico: the state where most abductions by aliens take place. Aside from the famous “Roswell” incident; New Mexico continues to be known for absolutely nothing else.

New York…

frank151.com

New York, NY is home to over 8 million people. Yet not one of them bothered to stop this rat from running off with a slice of pizza. Perhaps he is just a hardworking dad; who has four teenage mutant sons to feed. On second thought- good job New York. You let those rats take your pizza slices.

North Carolina…

funnyjunk.com

North Carolina is best known as the “other Carolina”. The roads are misspelled and the lanes don’t matter. Panthers have been known to roam the streets and attack locals who attempt to escape to the less panther torn parts of the world.

North Dakota…

favoritememes.com

Named after the founders of South Carolina hiked north for a few days and then decided “We’ll take this, too.” A state where cows might set your house on fire is not to be messed with. Moo-ving on…

Ohio…

funnyjunk.com

Something about Ohio makes a man want to go to space. At least, that’s what the numbers say. How can you argue with numbers? You can’t. So the next time someone in Ohio breaks up with you and say they “need space” – they really mean it, probably.

Oklahoma…

imgur.com

You did not misread that. This is a real broadcast from Oklahoma and it really happened. Earthquakes are so commonplace in Oklahoma that they are often mistaken for a troublesome donkey.

Oregon…

pinterest.com

Oregon is the only state that dogs and deer get along. Here is someone in Oregon’s pet deer alongside their four legged furry friends. This particular deer is named “Ernie” and he escaped the forest and they feed him steak and he refuses to go home.

Pennsylvania…

frank151.com

Only in Pennsylvania will you see an Amish girl rollerblading down the street; carrying two liters of Sprite. Let’s hope she can withstand a breeze or she may become gone with the wind.

Rhode Island…

favoritememes.com

If you should for any reason encounter a Rhode Island lobster do not panic – the lobsters can sense that. What you want to do is very slowly back away and then break into a full run; because these lobsters have knives now.

South Carolina…

frank151.com

This South Carolina woman ( and mother of the year award recipient ) is living proof that South Carolinians can multitask. Aside from holding a beer, a rifle and a child; she is also holding the keys to the truck in the background. She may even own that weird little half barn, we do not know.

South Dakota…

funnyjunk.com

South Dakota is not the place you want to be driving in during a winter storm. The ice on the road causes traffic accidents and in a worst-case-scenario – you may get stuck in South Dakota.

Tennessee…

imgur.com

Tennessee has a law that if anyone rides in your truck – they have to ride in the back. It’s the law. They don’t seem to mind the fact that most traffic accidents cause damage to the rear end of the vehicle.

Texas…

frank151.com

Texas has so many horses that when you ride up to a Sonic to get food – they will still serve you. However, it is a little cruel to make your steer come along.

Utah…

pinterest.com

Utah is famous for one thing and one thing only: Jello. They eat more jello than any other state and it is even their “state snack”. Weird.

Vermont…

frank151.com

Vermont is not just a place were people go skiing to avoid their parents. It’s also the most Canadian state. In 1920 the state of Vermont traded Canada 50 moose for some fireworks and the two have been allies ever since.

Virginia…

frank151.com

Everyone has an aunt that moved to Virginia and never came back. Maybe she met “Bill Jones” ( No relation to “Jim”; we hope ) and had a little too much moonshine. Maybe she just liked it there. Most likely; it’s the moonshine.

Washington…

gifbay.com

Washington’s weather coverage takes hurricanes very seriously. Clearly.

West Virginia…

pinterest.com

West Virginia is best known for it’s progressive approach to tourism.

Wisconsin…

funnyjunk.com

Wisconsin is best known as “that place with all the cheese”. So it makes sense that even the liquor stores there have cheese.

Wyoming…

makeameme.org

Wyoming has winds that can knock you off your feet- and perhaps into space orbit with all those astronauts from Ohio. 355 mph?! The only upside is that when you land; you might not be in Wyoming anymore.
