was this inspired by my Texas comment?

anyway...

(most of these are not weird stereotypes)

I am Texan and some stereotypes include:

  • that everyone is a cowboy kinda person
  • that everyone is really really big on football. (most people are though...)
  • we only eat barbeque and steak and big juicy burgers. (I wish this was true)
  • we live in a desert
  • everything is bigger in texas
  • we only listen to country music

also, @Scarletfox, if you want you can tell me if any of the above need revising...

General Midwest:

Everybody lives on a farm.

We are super hospitable to everyone (true to some)

“You betcha”

Wave to everyone when driving, if you don’t know them it's one finger, if you do it's two.

This was totally inspired by your texas comment and the fact that montana has no stereotypes

Midwest seems similar to the northwest we wave to every passing but we don't do it fancy we kinda the opposite of hospitable we just say go home to any non montanans we're rude like that a lot of people live on farms

Utah:

Jello (this is true, even the carrot stuff)

Large families (yes. I have two friends with 9 siblings, and most people I know have 4+ siblings. I only have three what a slacker)

Everyone is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (33% of Utah's population isn't)

Soda shops like Sodalicious and Swig (yes they're weirdly popular here)

Polygamy (no)

I can't think of anymore help me fellow utahns

I live in North Carolina.  Everyone thinks we completely loose our minds with a 1/4" of snow on the ground. They are correct. My daily commute goes past this place (and did so that very day!).

I used to live in Texas, and to a certain extent, it's kinda true.  Y'all's BBQ population is higher than many places I've seen.

In Washington, there's the 'No, you go', though that's more a joke then a stereotype.

In the summer probably 90 degrees average day is like 50-60 cold day is like -20ish we haven't gotten any cold days yet but we're past the average days and long since past the hot ones

for me, an average day is 80-90 a hot day is 100ish and a cold day is 30-50. I think that is all accurate...
