Title: Does every state poke sport at the state to the south?
Post by: SwashBuckling Drunk on September 14, 2010, 10:35:04 PM
I've lived in Oregon for a while and Oregonians definitely like to poke sport at California.  I also lived in Indianapolis for a while and Kentuckians are definitely made fun of.  I grew up near St Louis, MO and, same thing, Arkansas is the target.  My favorite jab of all is the old Missouri joke that if you cut the bootheel off of Missouri and give it to Arkansas then the IQ of both states would go up 50 points. Sadly, the gulf states have nothing to laugh about  :(

Is this true all over, or have I just randomly run into the 3 states that do this?  Iowans- lay some anti-Missouri smack on me.  Any other funnies out there?

I think you just habitually live north of crappy states.  I never lived in any of the states you listed but commonly make fun of Californians, Kentuckians and Arkansas just the same.   

For what it's worth, many Texans talk a lot of crap about our southern neighbor Mexico as well... then again, theres a joke about our northern neighbor along the lines of "Why doesn't Texas fall into the gulf?  because Oklahoma sucks".

I guess I am just an equal opportunity offender.

I grew up in Pennsylvania and we always made fun of people from New Jersey. Course that's east, not west. Now I live in Alabama and Alabama deserves to be made fun of. And no one is south of us.

There was a film, a long time ago I think, that said that Texas is just "Baja Oklahoma".

As far as states go, in my homestate of Indiana, the northerners would make fun of the southern part of the state.  Now that I live in Michigan, I don't see much difference around Indiana.  Or maybe it was that time living in Germany that made the differences around the US seem smaller?

Edit - In Michigan the Yoopers (Upper Peninsula) call the people in the Lower Peninsula "Trolls"  as they live below the MacinaC Bridge.

My parents generation grew up in NJ and we made many trips there in the old family truckster.  I remember all the "coicles".  In recent years, they built circles all over Indy (esp north burbs) and they keep building em around Portlland, even way out in rural communities.  Seems like alot of money for little benefit.

I don't ever remember making fun of southerners in Baltimore, but then again everybody had family down south.

WV was the more popular target. NJ would have been too, but I don't think we actually believed it existed.

Yeah, 63.  Suck it.

We never had the Jersey accent, I think because we lived far enough from NYC and Philly.  I was on LBI for highschool - Surf City.  But I was born in Queens, lived on Governor's Island, then moved to Plainfield, Lavallette, North Brunswick, Huegenot NY, and Surf City.  We moved a lot. :)

  In S.C. we don't make much fun at our neighbors to the south, which is Georgia; we spend too much time making fun of ourselves.
 
  We actually pity our southern neighbors. We have the University of South Carolina - Home of the Fighting Gamecocks! - and all they have is UGA and that poor ugly bulldog. We do have Clemson (aka Clem's Son) and them hillbilly bastards that pull for that stupid tiger so I guess that makes us equal.

  Our form of entertainment is the "Half-Backs". Those are all of them damn Yankees that move to Florida and then only make it halfway back, and then retire in S.C. and then tell us how everything we do is wrong. We just smile and nod.

We definitely talk smack about Iowans here in Minnesota. But not too harshly, since just about everyone seems to have friends/relatives who live there. I remember as a kid being told that Iowa stands for I Oughtta Went Around ;D. Then there was the old joke: "What did the Minnesotan do when the Iowan threw the grenade over the state line?  Pulled the pin and threw it back!"

I grew up in St Louis and now live in Indianapolis, and I think the problem is just that Arkansas and Kentucky are particularly low-hanging fruit. I've never heard Coloradans poke fun at New Mexico, for example.

Iowans make fun of everyone, including ourselves.  I grew up in NW Iowa about 25 miles from SD and MN we'd tell jokes about the rest of Iowa like it was a different state. 

Things like Iowa stands for Idiots Out Wandering Around.

I had someone ask me why moved back to Iowa after going to school KC and then living in NE for 9 years?  I told them I couldn't afford the blocks for the "yard car" in MO and was tired of only having one team to watch and everything being painted red in NE.

A oldie about MN (and I've heard it form Minnesotans about Iowa), "Why do birds fly over MN upside down? Cause it ain't worth a s@#$."  8^)

The ones I know do. :)  I think it's because the north tends to be more sparsely populated.  Of course they still make fun of the Taswegians.   :)

Speaking of, never ask an Aussie woman about her map of Tasmania.  I tricked a friend of mine into doing that once, if she'd been closer she would have smacked him.  ;D

I remember trying to sort out all the upper midwest "confirmation catchphrases" at the end of sentences.  The common perception is that everyone in MN, WI, MI and IA says "eh?" like a Canadian.  I figured out it went something like folks in Wisconsin do, in fact, say "eh?" A LOT. However, folks in Minnesota often say "don cha know?".  Folks in Iowa say "yeah hey?".  I can't remember the Michigan version.

The common perception is also that everyone in Canada says "eh?"  Its a regional expression in Canada as much as it is in the US.  Go north of the northern midwest US & that's where you'll hear it (central & western Canada).

That's not to say it isn't a widespread expression in Canada, but you don't hear it much east of Ontario.

But back on topic, the poking fun happens more east/west here and we have a severe inferiority complex when it comes to the neighboring southern border  ::)  even though Canada is larger (see there it is again).

It suddenly dawned on me that Cap was actually making fun Tubercle and other of folks in S.C.

 We even got folks in our state that has been certified with a P.H.D. (Post Hole Diggers) so all of you uppity folk had better back off Tubercle, unless he come find you and teach you some culture.

I always thought it was stupid that everyone around me thought all Canadians ended every phrase with 'eh?".  Then I made my first trip to Canada on business and the first person I talked to (as I was stepping out of the door of the Toronto airport, mind you) asked me, and I quote, "Sooo, How you liking Canada, eh?".  It was all I could do to keep from laughing out loud.  He was the only person I talked to during the whole trip who spoke that way.  It was just too funny.

Maybe he was just playing along? :)

I went to Vancouver BC for work once, and a Canadian I worked with told me - when you're in a conversation with some Canadians and there's a lull in the conversation, out of nowhere just say:

"Play hockey, eh".

So I did.

It was hilarious!  They immediately started going "oh hell yeah" and yammering on about hockey this and hockey that.  I'm a hockey fan so the conversation was fun, but man!  It was like a pre-programmed trigger phrase.   ;D

No, just beer, I'm sure the folks down here would be in awe with which you brew. There may be the occasional jar floating around, so I'm told ( I jest, that would be illegal, wouldn't it ;D) and the way way you cook, your awesome magic on a grill, you could be considered a god, just like Cortez was to the Aztecs.

 I challenge you now, and if you are willing to take it, to come to South Carolina, to the 2011 Moonshiner's Reunion, bring your family as a vacation, held on the 1st weekend in  October, to experience all the we have to offer. Are you up to the challenge? It's a vacation I promise you will never forget. I plan to cook chili beans. What you going to bring that will beat that?

Oh man, here's a slice of down home Georgia fun.  In '96 I went to the Olympics in Atlanta.  I stayed at a buddy's house in Lawrenceville.  He took me to some friend of his about a half hour away in the sticks.  It was unbelievable, like a caricature of down home southern livin.  It was like a mobile home park, but with bigger lots.  The place was like a non stop block party.  There were two guys building a flat roof thing over the trailer door and putting down regular 3 tab shingles on a roof with no slope.  The neighbor had his mud buggy at the mud bog the night before, so he was cleaning the heinous red mud off his buggy.  The buggy was on a trailer.  Of course, he didn't need ramps to unload it- he just fired it up and gassed it off the back of the trailer.  The topper to the whole scene was that there were 2 girls, about 12 or 13 years old, wrasslin in a baby pool.  The boys were enjoying the show too much for me.  It still doesn't seem real.

I don't think it was the music he was objecting to, so much as the sodomy.

 I'll check, but I don't think I have any of that on film.

 By the way, you are invited too.

Grew up in the far southwest corner of Louisiana so made fun of Texas instead; however Louisiana really can't make fun of anyone... except for Arkansas and Mississippi since those two are the only two states that consistently rank last with them on most polls and studies.

Went to college in Monroe, LA in the NE part of the state and experienced what I had always heard growing up, that if you get much farther north of I-10 it really isn’t Louisiana anymore it’s really just an extension of AR and MS. The food and the culture are fairly different from north to south, and the difference is with the Cajuns in the south.

Why do all the trees in Louisiana tilt to the west?
     ....because Texas sucks.  ;)

I live in Wisconsin and we poke fun at Illinois.  They are called FIBs.  With that said I would have to say that it is true  :P
Although, we do refer to Upper Michigan as Yoopers.

I was visiting relatives in Wisconsin.  Last Sunday, we stopped at the Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee.  There I learned that FIB stood for "Fellow Illinois Brethren". ;)

A friend of mine said "That guy sounds like he's from South Retardistan"

I'm still laughing about it two days later.  I couldn't remember exactly what he'd said so the next day I asked "Was it East Retardistan?"  He said "No, South Retardistan.  They're always dumber in the south."   ;D

Come on, we all know what it is really like down there. Lets just say,I for one am never going on a canoe trip down there that is for sure.

He got a real pretty mouth ain't he?

And speaking of canoe trips...
The reason why the St.Johns River flows from South to North Florida is because Georgia sucks.(Georgia gets it from the north and the south).

The rest of Germany (to the north) look on Bavarians as being backwards.  A fact Bavarians are proud of.

I was giving a beer talk earlier this month and mentioned something like "a type of yeast used in some German beers that gives banana and clove flavors".  A woman challenged me (nicely) on it afterward and said there are no German beers that taste like banana.  I said Bavarian hefeweizen and she said "Oh, that's Bavaria, that's not Germany."  :)

When I was in Australia, the people in New South Wales (Sydney) were making fun of the people in Victoria (Melbourne) in the same way. They even said "we're going to Mexico" --I said "huh?" -- they said "south of the border.". Amusing to me since south there is colder. People from Victoria were dressed as banditos for club night. That was even more amusing.  Imagine Pancho Villa with white labs tubes in a bandolier.

Yep, that's accurate...Bavarians consider themselves as seperate and better. Meanwhile, the other half of Southern Germany, Swabia, is regarded by the North as...well, to use an American term, a bunch of bumpkins. Funny thing too...Swabians are easily recognized by their accent and Swabish words...just as we in the southern US often are 'given away' by our accent and vocabulary.

It's the same here on Hawaii Island.  I did not invent the name punatic. 
However taking a slur and turning it into a badge of honor sends a message.

I remember an incident at a homebrew compettion one time where the awards ceremony MC announced, "Those guys from Florida sure don't know much about first place."  Well, we made that our slogan and came back the next year and took nearly all of their first places and their coveted club cup too.

Bavaria is the biggest state.
Bavarians have there own rustic clothes and hats.
Bavarian's have their own accent.
The Bavarian state flag and its design is used in many designs.

Yeah, kind of like Texas.

Well, Texas was the biggest until 1960 IIRC, and they still think so, at least when I visit family there.   ;)

But you are correct, Tom.  For the record, I have been to TX and Alaska. 

One final comment.  When you were in Bamberg, did you ever talk to the locals about being Bavarian?  They will say they are not.

I just read that to my wife and she laughed...she said "Yes, Swabians like folks from Bamberg, because Bambergers don't think of themselves as Bavarians." (My wife is from Swabia...Stuttgart is her hometown)

Hey, you know what they say to Texicans in Alaska, "You better be nice or we'll cut our state in half, then you'll be the third largest state in the Union."

49th State on 1/3/59.

My memory was off, but I was only a little kid at the time.  I remember the talk of there being more states and how the flag was going to look with 50 stars.  I see Hawaii, the last state was August 21, 1959.

My mother-in-law was from Stuttgart.  My wife and her twin brother were born there but moved to the US when they were 1 year old.  My father-in-law was a US soldier stationed in Germany.

My parents lived in Bad Aibling from 1980 to 1988.  It was then I got to visit Bavaria and pretty much all of Europe.  I loved Bad Aibling and Rosenheim and Munchen and... 

That's when I began learning about beer.  The local brewery was/is Schlossbrauerei Maxlrain (http://www.maxlrain.com/index3.html)

They inspired me to start brewing.  I could find nothing in the States at that time that compared.

I don't remember that coming up when I was there, but it sounds familiar for some reason. :-\   It was funny though, everyone I talked to seemed surprised that I had come to Bamberg specifically for the beer, and they asked if I had heard of smoked beer before.  ::) ;D  Good times.
