Pennsylvania is underrated as a "shitty hick state". Well I know that may be true of the pittsbrugh area (even though they have awesome snowboarding mountains). Philadelphia is basically a little bit historic town and a lotta bit ghetto nation. Theres at least 2 gang shootings there a day. The suburbs of Pa are really the place to be though. I mean where else do you have rich kids, poor kids, dropouts, 11-year old seniors and drugs galore?! The weather is as unpredictable as whether or not your parents are having an affair. One day last year is snowed and the very next day the weather was 70 degrees and sunny. When I meet people out of state I usually hear things like, "Do you see the liberty bell every year for field trips?" "Are you amish?" and "Whats Wawa?" Myself, I have never seen the liberty bell and know that amish people wouldn't even go out of state due to lack of cars. As for Wawa, Pennsylvanians know its the greatest place ever invented. The amish are in Lancaster everyone knows that and there arent as many of them as people think. I don't know what to think of northern Pa, I'm starting to think it doesn't exist. I've lived here all my life and have never heard a thing about Northern Pa or met anyone who lived there. If you live there, let me know. As for the shitty roads, In the last 2 years Im pretty sure all the roads near my house have been ripped up and expanded somehow, so basically, yeah. Shitty roads. So far this is the only state I've ever seen where a hick-filled general store (which is awesome by the way) that is located less than a mile away from multi-million dollar mansions. I guess Pa is also notorious for Bam Margera. He makes appearances at Boarderline (a nearby skate park) and a lot of people say hes actually an asshole. The most annoying thing about Pennsylvania is probably Penn State. Supposedly, an awesome school, but obviously, brainwashes its students into obsessing over it. There are so many diehard Eagles and Steelers fans in this state, it is unheard of. Sure, we don't have beaches or hawt celebs, we have shitty roads and our sports teams suck, but we still own all.
Loser: "Dude, Pennsylvania is so lame."
Me: "Are there cannibalistic, child-stealing, rocksalt-shooting, circus-escaping, inbreeding clans of albinos in your state?!"
Me: "Yeah, thats what I thought fuckface"
