If there’s one thing we love doing in this country, it’s drawing little invisible lines in the dirt that separate us from one another, never traveling across those lines, and proclaiming ourselves experts on what goes on there, anyway. That’s what makes polls like this one, from Business Insider, so much fun, and, obviously, such irresistible click-bait. They polled 1603 United States residents on a broad spectrum of questions to determine how we perceive one another state by state. Perhaps unsurprisingly, New York was called out as the rudest, and most arrogant, which anyone who’s spent 15 seconds in that hell hole of an overrated dump could tell you (just kidding everyone who works for this site). But, on the other hand, New York also has the best food and the best sports fans. Too bad about all the actual sports teams themselves, sure, but the fans are pretty good at existing. Except when they’re not, because they’ve also got the worst sport fans.
Also making a strong showing on the list was Texas, who garnered top honors in the least favorite state category, the one people would most like to see kicked out of the country. California got the most votes for favorite state, but only because most idiots think what they watch on the movies is real. Then again, perhaps our grasp of state knowledge isn’t so flimsy as one might think, because California was also called out for the craziest residents, and the hottest. Always the bridesmaid, Florida. My home state of Massachusetts was voted the smartest, because of course it was, what’re you fucking stupid? (Also the weirdest accent). Surprisingly there was no category for handsomest bloggers, although I think we would’ve taken that one handily as well.
