1.) The most centralized state in the United States of America. This is the homestate of former Republican Presidential Candidate Bob Dole.
2.) An excellent Progressive Rock band that made its start in Topeka during the early 70s. Their greatest hits include "Song For America", "Carry On My Wayward Son", "Point of Know Return", "Fight Fire With Fire", "Relentless", and "Dust in the Wind". The frontmen for the band are Kenny Livgren and Steve Walsh.
Kansas has over a dozen albums and tons of good songs. They are still together after thirty years.

A lovely Midwestern state, right in the dead center of the United States. Is well-known for its flat land (not a bad thing at all), the anti and pro-slavery conflicts in the 1850s, the case of Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka, the University of Kansas Jayhawks, the Wizard of Oz, the progressive-rock band of the same name, and the big cities of Wichita and Topeka.
Kansas is a great place to be, and is rich in history.

Kansas, like most believe, is neither the flattest state nor does it receive the most tornadoes. Actually, Florida is the flattest state in the USA. Texas has the most tornadoes recorded as of yet.

Kansas is the middle of the contiguous United States.

Kansas homes many shops with good clothes, restaurants with great food, and schools with great curricular programs.

Kansas is not a hick state. Kansas is by no means a fully Republican state, in fact, our governor is a female Democrat. Not everybody in Kansas lives on a farm; Eastern Kansas houses some rather large cities including Lawrence, Topeka, and Wichita.

Kansas is not a freaking close minded state. Plenty of freaking homosexuals and people of different freaking heritages live here. Please shut up. Now.

Kansas is not always scorching. The weather is a freak, summers are usually hot and winters cold, but there are a lot of unseasonably hot/cold days. It can be nice and sunny one hour then rain like hell the next.

I've lived in Kansas all my life. Never met a closed minded/super religious/homophobic person at all.

If we don't have internet or water, I'm not typing this. Or alive.

(Kansas is also on the route of the Ogallala Aquafir. PLENTY OF WATER HERE.)

Shut up with yer damn stereotypes now. I'm a Kansan, I'm also an Atheist. Yeah. I also hate country music. Yea. MAGIC, I KNOW.
Person 1: So you lived in Kansas, did you grow wheat and sunflowers?
Kansan: Dude, shut the hell up.

Bastard: HAY, COWBOY, HOW'S IT GOING? :D

A state right in the middle of the U.S. It has lots of small towns (soon to be gone :( ), wheat, airplanes, farms and stuff, construction and road work. It's known for tornadoes, but doesn't get as many as some people think. It's biggest city is Wichita which is also the hometown of Dennis the Mennis. Topeka and Lawrence are nice places too.
Kansas, at least it's not as bad as Oklahoma.

Contrary to popular belief, Kansas is not the flattest state in the union (which happens to be Florida). Located in the extreme center of the US, Kansas is commonly associated with cows and/or wheat, but has little other claim to fame. Alot of people like to reference Kansas to the Wizard of Oz. Nobody is amused. We never have been.
It is believed that Kansans do not have paved roads or access to the internet, and are all married to thier cousins. Most Kansans have never lived on a farm. It is home to Johnson County, the Kansas equivalent to the 90210 where there are plenty of places to blow your money on designer purses and multi-million dollar mansions.
Most stay away from KCMO or the heart of KCK, where you have a 50% chance of death. But the Kansas side is the best (at least the streets run the correct way).
Kid 1: How can you be from Kansas?
Kid 2: Because I'm from Johnson County, idiot. We were ranked number three best county to live in. Read Forbes.

Kid 1: Woah wait, do you know what facebook is? do you have paved roads?
Kid 2: I'm sorry, let me pull out my John Deere onto I-435...

Todo has been dead for a long time. You are not amusing me with your idiotic attempts at a joke.

A state that is:

a.) Flat in the western half and hilly with valleys in the eastern half, especially in the Ozark region. (I live in Kansas and my town is in a valley, so ha.)

b.) Can be boring if you don't know the place. (Tractor tipping anyone?)

c.) Is not the home of Wizard the Oz, and no, we don't know where Toto is.

d.) Does have tornadoes, but I've never seen one. As we say in Kansas, if you don't like the weather now, it'll change, probably within ten minutes.

e.) Has Salina, a town that is in equal distance from New York as it is from Los Angeles (1,490 miles each way).

f.) Smallville and Metropolis do not exist in real life.
Person Y: I have to go to Kansas, and they don't electricity!

Person Z: Then ask the Wizard of Oz for some.
