St. Louis Breakdown:

"South City Hoosier" - These are hoosiers that have all the hoosier trademarks and live south of Highway 44. Almost all of the men work in the automotive field. The women usually are the ones buying Basic cigarettes and scratch-off tickets at a South Grand gas station on Wednesday mornings while thier 7 and 9 year old kids are listening to Eminem in the Astro van.

"South County Hoosier" - These hoosiers aren't always poor rednecks. In fact, most of them own homes and have decent jobs. Look for fishing boats in the driveways, Christmas lights in May and stockpiles of Busch Light beer. Many of the men are hunters and/or fishermen and all have buddies that can fix your car. The women usually have part-time jobs, and slightly newer vans. Many south county hoosiers grew up as south city hoosiers.

"Jefferson County Hoosier" - These hoosiers are a wily bunch. Most drive pickup trucks and have boots that are heavily stained and torn to shreds. They usually start sentences with "hey man..." and all of thier stories are about thier brother-in-law. They too hunt, but can't afford to have thier deer stuffed and mounted like most South County Hoosiers. Almost all of these hoosiers are extremely conservative, and very few work in St. Louis. The women generally wear clothes from 1993 and rock 80's style femullets and bangs. Most smoke menthol cigarettes but will buy the non-menthol brands for thier 14 year old sons named Levi.

"St. Charles Hoosiers" - St.Chares hoosiers are rare sightings. They look normal, and drive nice trucks but almost always live in a home that contains wheels. They have money for stuff like Imo's pizza and Bud Light beer, but only on Saturday's or during Rams's games. They often don't even know that they are in fact hoosiers because they live in St. Charles, howvever the burger king bags on they're floorboards and Z107.7 stickers on their cars are a dead giveaway.

South City - "We went to Ted Drewe's last night"
"Oh yeah, how was that?"
"It was alright, but a total hoosier-fest!"

South County - "I was pulling out of my street and my freakin' hoosier neighbors' dog ran right in front of my car!"

Jefferson County - "Hey man do you have a copy of AC/DC's Back in Black at your place? My damn brother-in-law borrowed mine like three weeks ago, and I aint seen it since!"

St. Charles - "I met some girl at Harrah's but the minute she started talking about how she filed a restraining order against her ex, I knew I was dealing with a full-fledged hoosier!"

there are basically two categories of hoosier:
A. hoosier by birth
B. hoosier by lifestyle

a hoosier by birth really has no choice but to be a hoosier. They come from a long line of hoosiers, described by St. Louisian Glenn Savan in his book White Palace as "decendants of transplanted Ozark farmers.' Usually overweight, trailor inhabiting, junk food eating, quasi-inbred folks whose idea of luxury is shopping at Wal-Mart and when in the mood for gourmet dining, go to Ponderosa. For the ultimate in entertainment, it's the Jerry Springer Show or pro wrestling. Of course, NASCAR is big also. But the mecca of the true hoosier is Six Flags Ovcr Mid-America in Eureka, MO. A disproportinate number of hoosiers can be found at hospitals, as both patients and visitors, a result of a lifetime of artery clogging, blood pressure raising diet and smoking cigarettes. Due to its proximity to Jefferson County, St. Anthony's Hospital in south St. Louis County is a prime spot for hoosier watching,

Hoosiers by lifestyle have no excuse. They more often than not come from decent families but once are grown up and on their own, they choose to live like white trash. They listen to metal music, drink beer in excess, spend hundreds of dollars on fireworks every Fourth of July, allow their dogs to shit in their neighbors' yard, and attend professional sporting events not affordable for born hoosiers, and of course they are drunk and obnoxious at these baseball/football/hockey games.
Only a total hoosier would throw an empty drink cup out of the car window.

Noun. Word used by St. Louisians to describe poor white trash found all across the proud state of Missouri. Often associated with trucks, lack of teeth, 80's hairstyles, gun fetish due to small penis, and lack of proper grammar. Commonly racist and person who prefers to drink cheap beer a college student would not touch.

"At least one term deserves special mention for, so far as can be learned, it is native to the prison. Every inmate knows its meaning and a great portion of them use the word. The term which seems unique in the prison is the word 'hoosier'. A 'hoosier' seems to be any person, inmate, or otherwise, who is objectionable. More specifically, it is used for stool pigeons, stupid persons, and officials. It seems to have no reference to Indiana and its etiology could not be learned".

- CLEMMER, Donald. The Prison Community - Boston: The Christopher Publishing House, 1940, p. 90.
"We go in at 8:45 and are razzed all along the line. When the night guard unlocks the cell we enter and the following conversation takes place:

"N.C.P. What the hell is that on the floor? Which is your bunk?
"Me: I don't know. The hoosier (galley boy) usually keeps this joint pretty clean. Your bunk's the top one, but if your mattress is better than mine, we'll sleep there.
"N.C.P. Some one's been eating peanuts and dropped 'em on the floor. I have to get up at 5:00 o'clock, don't I? Will he remember to call me? (The night guard.)
"I: You have to go out at 5:00 o'clock and he wakes you up at 4:00 so you can get dressed. If he don't call you, the screws won't get any breakfast.
"N.C.P. That hoosier better not bother me at 4:00 o'clock. What the hell do I care whether they get any breakfast or not! Oh, the dirty bastard!"

The most widely accepted definition of a hoosier: a hillbilly, hick, white trash, dirt bag, racist, provincial, ethnocentric, and/or scumbag. Typical interests of a hoosier includes: guns, pickup trucks, NASCAR, wife beating, neglecting pets, beating one's wife, mowing the grass, shooting animals, and drinking beer. A hoosier is commonly suspicious of outsiders, and will be uncomfortable in unfamiliar social situations. A hoosier can originate from any part of the world, but are found in highest concentration in the southern U.S. and Indiana (which is also known as the Alabama of the north). The term hoosier is an insult.
"Are you hoosier?"

"Yea good buddy! Let's keep it local! Gonna watch some NASCAR and drink some beer! Yeeee haw! Buddy, you don't have to be shy, I'm hoosier too--you can say all the racist thangs you want."
