Wisconsin. Supposedly home of a cow in every backyard, cheese filling the fridge, accents like dis eh?, drunk 9 year olds, tractors on every road, and blizzards in July. No.
Wisconsin has farms and farmers, yes, but that's not all of us. Actually, that's not most of us. Most people here live in cities. Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay. No farmers there. And that's just a few of the big ones. I'm from Wisconsin and I don't even like cheese that much. Most of us don't make our own cheese or anything like that. We buy some from Wal-Mart.
You hear those news reporters on TV? That is how our accents are, excluding the most northern part of Wisconsin. That accent is called "Standard midwestern", and is what most of the people from Wisconsin speak with.
Not everybody is a heavy drinker, but we do have our fair share. We know what the drinking age is, people.
We have old crappy trucks, we have brand new Porsche's, though most of us fall somewhere inbetween.
We don't just have winter, winter, winter and winter. We have 4 distinct seasons. Winters are very, very cold and snowy, yes. But spring is rainy and warmer, not snowy and cold. Summer is blazing hot and extremely sunny. Fall is cool and crisp, with beautiful colors everywhere.
We don't sit around on our rocking chairs with shotguns loaded, either. We have laptops and iPhones and flat-screen TVs and malls and video games. Wisconsin is normal.
Californian: OMG. LIKE WISCONSIN. OMG. SO WEIRD AND GROSS SO FULL OF REDNECKS. LIKE OMG.
Wisconsinite: Uhh..not really. *texts on iPhone*
