Louisiana: a flat state with bass-ackwards weather, strange accents, the best food you'll ever taste, beaucoup festivals, southern ignorance, Mardi Gras, a deeply influential heritage, and the most beautiful women in America. Shreveport is the equivalent of the mason-dixon line in Louisiana, because no one south of it wants to claim the north and vice versa.
The southern part is mostly bayou marshland and traffic-ridden cities. (It's also the fun part.)
The northern half is pretty much Arkansas. (I'm sorry.)
It's a state with brown water, friendly faces, clear skies, unique music and unbearable humidity. Proud and stubborn, the older generations still cling to the antiquated ways of the cajun french culture, while the young embrace the urban ideals and try to discard the deep-seated heritage of the state.
Yes, it's an extremely corrupt state, politically and otherwise.
Elections: everyone's favorite spectator sport.
Yes, there are stupid rednecks. (There are stupid people everywhere.)
Yes, there is a terrible education system. (Ahem)
Yes, racism and discrimination still rampant in parts of the state. (Although a lot less than you would believe.)

But there are also unbelievable misconceptions about this intriguing and often underestimated state.

And I would like to close with this:
I live here, and have never (with my own eyes) seen anyone with a mullet.
Laissez les bon temps roulez en la belle Louisiane!

Where it occurred to me that the finest Hooters in the country are all located in College towns south of the Mason Dixon Line.
Best Hooters in the world Baton Rouge Louisiana, Worst Hooter in the World New York City.

Sorry New York.

Only about the best fucking state ever! Everything about LA is totally unique to the south. You can hardly put us with the rest of the southern states, except for the fact that we pwn on the sourthern charm. We've got the food, accent and ghost stories to knock your socks off. Deep south LA will totally bring you straight into the voodoo, creole, alligators-hiding-in-the-swamps LA you think of. Home to the third largest port city in the world, New Orleans, Louisiana is drenched in history. Louisiana holds three of the longest bridges in the world: Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, the Manchac Swamp Bridge, and the Atchafalaya Basin bridge. Also, Gambit, who's the single most bad-ass X-Man of all is from New Orleans.

A tip for northern tourists; don't call New Orleans "Nawlins." We will make fun of you.
Visit beautiful Louisiana. "Louisiana: Fuck yeah."

A hot humid place in the deep south of the United States that has polluted waterways, corrupt politicians, crime and mobsters galore and huricane-devastated cities.

And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I am proud to say I'm a native of this great land and Cajun through and through. We got the best food, the best crawfish (not CRAYfish, dang yanks) and best resteraunts and seafood this side of the Mason-Dixon line!

As deep south as it gets. All you wannabe's from anywhere north of Georgia yet still below the Mason Dixon line are NOT southerners. Just cause it joined the CSA doesnt mean its Southern. That's as rediculous as an American who's great great great great grandma came from Ireland and they insist on calling themselves an "Irishman". Anyway, to you yanks, we are NOT all Cajun (but I am), we do NOT all speak French, we dont ride alligators or take boats everywhere or live in the swamp, and Louisiana is not one big swamp like most people think. Not a whole lot of Louisiana is swampland ya know. its the best state in the world, and even though there's a lot of things wrong with it, its STILL the best place to live.

Virginian: I'm from the South!
Me: Really? What state?
Virginian: Virginia! the southern state, you know!
Me: No offense, but that's kinda far north to me and most Southerners.
Virginia: Hello! I am Southern!
Me: *walks away slowly*

From the Poorest Neighborhoods in Downtown Lafayette, to the richest in Monroe. Louisiana is the best state in America.


Unlike most retards on here think, Louisiana isn't full of drunken rednecks and cajuns(except in Laplace, Eunice, Westlake etc.) I'm from Lake Charles and our population here is mostley African American.
You may think 75% of the population here in Louisiana is Redneck or Cajun, but I sure as hell know I'm not.

Home of the Sugar Bowl Champions in 2003. Nobody knows how the Fighting Tigers even became champions. Many people believe it to be the work of aliens.

Louisiana is not full of rednecks and hicks. The only places where the population is more than 75% redneck are Laplace, De Ridder, and Houma. New Orleans is perhaps most famous for its car dealer commericals.
