Top Ten Ways to Annoy People In Certain States of the United States

Turkeyasylum
So, this is my first of a new series of lists on ways to annoy people of different parts of the world. This may be a controversial series. It is stereotypical, so do not assume all the stereotypes are true.

The Top Ten

1 When they go to a restaurant, always ask if they would like potatoes with each order (Idaho)

Idaho is known well for growing the nation's potatoes, and we often see "Idaho Potatoes" on labels of potato bags. - Turkeyasylum

2 If they come to a dinner party, be sure all the dishes contain cheese in some form (Wisconsin)

Wisconsin is pretty much the staple of cheese in the US. - Turkeyasylum

3 During a light conversation, change the tone and ask how many murders they have witnessed (Michigan)

It's sad how many people think Michigan is a bad place because of Detroit's reputation, but the state is actually a safe place other than parts of Detroit and Flint. - Turkeyasylum

4 If they invite you to a football party, be sure to were blue and maize there (Ohio)

The Ohio State University and Michigan (Colors are blue and maize/CORN) are bitter rivals. - Turkeyasylum

5 Purposefully mispronounce their name as "Our Kansas" (Arkansas)

It's a hard name to pronounce at first, but it is not pronounced "Our Kansas". - Turkeyasylum

6 Ask if they've ever been bitten by an alligator on the way to Disney World (Florida)

No I have never been bitten by an alligator - LordDovahkiin

7 Ask why their state isn't called Cyrus (Montana)

I'm not going to explain any more. - Turkeyasylum

Wow. Didn't get that at first, but after reading it a few times- this is funny! - RockFashionista

Ha Ha Ha! If I come to Montana I might definitely say that! - PizzaGuy

8 Send then a text asking how the weather is (Alaska)

Due to its geographic position. - Turkeyasylum

9 When they ask for a present, give them coal. If they ask why, say "I thought it could add to your collection" (West Virginia)

Fact is that this is the fattest state on average. "Coal" could loosely translate as "food" for them. - PositronWildhawk

The state with the most coal will be very upset with you. - Turkeyasylum

10 Ask where the nearest marijuana dispenser is so you can "smoke on the slopes" (Colorado)

Two stereotypes into one. Viola.

Thanks for reading! - Turkeyasylum

HAHAA this was actually too much! - keycha1n

The Contenders

11 Tell them you prefer badminton (Tennessee)

I'm sorry, this is just the lamest pun that I've concocted for a while. - PositronWildhawk

12 Ask the governor to change the state song to Fruit Salad

Which state is this exactly?

13 Tell them to "Pahk ya ca in Harvad Yard" (Massachusetts)
14 Tell them to find a historic monument (Kansas)
15 Tell someone their accent sounds terrible (Pennsylvania)

You'll manage to offend people from Pittsburgh or Philadelphia with that statement.

Ha we Pennsylvanians do get triggered by that, although I still think New York and Boston are worse. - AnimeSportsFan619

16 Howdy y'all! Want some bar-be-q with that butter? (Texas)
17 Tell farmers to make more fruit (California)

Those farmers will tell you that your fruit will soon be bruised beyond repair. - PositronWildhawk

18 Tell them that New York is better (California)

Vice versa. However, Cali is better because there's beaches you can actually swim in, amusement parks, good weather, and more - ethanmeinster

19 Ask them why there are no pro basketball teams in the state (Missouri)
20 Ask someone if they eat corn every meal (Nebraska)
