A tip for northern tourists; don't call New Orleans "Nawlins." We will make fun of you.
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*
But its not.
I'm from Mandeville,Louisiana,and most of the people here are rich,smart people.
and i'm sure if you would get your head out of your ass,you would stop being blind and stop sterotyping.
i have never seen anyone with a mullet.
and if you have a country accent,you will most likely get made fun of.
idiot:do you have a pet aligator?
me:*shakes head and walks away*
North Louisiana: Northerners
Eastern and Western Louisiana: Country/rednecks

Known for being stupid. Which is completely not true. So we talk different than you northereners... to us, you talk stupid too. Also known for having alot of criminals. Also not true as long as to stay in the good part of the towns. Our polititions are know for being corupt, I guess this is true, but the way we see it, time= money so you better be ready to pay for our time.
Louisianians are very friendly. We love to invite our brand new neighbors over for some good old crawfish, hmmmmm yummmmm!
Some northerners think every part of Louisiana is swamp. I've been asked once if I had to use a boat to go get my mail.
Louisiana is a wonderful state with wonderful people that will welcome you anytime.
Louisiana is da black state
