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.

There appears to be some confusion with this definition. The term "Hoosier" does in fact include West County. A proper definition of "hoosier" is anyone who lives west of 270 or south of Clayton Road. Basically if you dont live in Clayton, U-City, Ladue, or North County, you are a hoosier. Sorry Chesterfield, you guys are big hoosiers.

a hilbilly from indiana. they got that name cuz the hilbillys in indiana are always fighting with each other and occasionally they mite get a busted nose or their ear cut off. in the case of the latter, after they were all done fighting, the people would be in the street and find the ear and theyd go "whos ear is this?" and since the rednecks are lazy too, it would just come out like "HOOSIER is this?" HOOSIER
redneck 1 - yea there must have been a lotta fightin out here last nite, look at all this blood
