Maryland is the only place where you can purchase Old Bay flavored potato chips.

I'm from Maryland. We're not from the South, nor do we have an accent. We're also not New England, we're the Mid Atlantic. It's soda, not pop. It's a sub, not a hoagie. It's the beach not the shore and we drink water not "Wooder". It's acceptable to say "where y'all goin?" in short of "where are you going?" It's pizza not pie. It's DC not Washington. We know what bad traffic really looks like, how to use a traffic circle, and how to pump our own gas. We know what and where the Naval Academy is. It's not unusual to eat at a resturant with no shirts, no shoes, and your boat parked out front. We love crabs, corn, and beer. There is no place like it.

The state with the biggest identity crisis in America. Parts of it like DC and Baltimore are extremely ghetto, with two of the top 5 murder rates in the country. Balto is the heroine capital of the world. Suburbs like Potomac are Bethesda are among the richest and most well educated in the country, and populated by lawyers and doctors with preppy rich children who drive Benz's. To the far west, you have the type of hicks that live in West Virginia up in the Appalachian mountains. To the south and the east you have the kind of hicks you might find in Mississippi. In Ocean City you have retired people who decided to go live on the beach. Around the bay area, you have a lot of fisherman. Maryland may be mixed up, but the crabs are damn good.
Q: What do you get when you mix a drug dealer, a mass murderer, a nascar driver and a fisherman?

A: A Marylander

America in minature. There is basically nothing in america that won't also be found in maryland. we have the rich and the poor, farmland, beaches, cities, oceans, and bays, republicans and democrats, anything you name it. We have the orioles and the ravens who kick butt most of the time. Baltimore, which might as well be the capital, is the stronghold of maryland. in baltimore you will notice an accent that is different from the rest of the people in maryland cause yes we do say stuff like wooder instead of water. o yea, and if you live in maryland and don't eat the famous crabs, you are considered to be weird. in short, maryland is the best state to live in if you want to experience america.
person 1: i want to live in one place but still explore all of america
person 2: o just move to maryland then.

Seventh state admitted to Union. Population, ~5.5 million. Has one of the country's largest metro areas (Baltimore-Washington corridor), one of the larger public universities in the country (UMD), and once proud sports franchises (Orioles). Has a dual identity, as it's both a Mid-Atlantic state and a Southern state, because it's south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Where the crabs are damn good, where the "Hood" is in a suburb, where one of the richest counties is 20 minutes away from D.C., where D.C. is D dot C dot, where the UMD Terrapins will smash anybody, where there is a tree every two feet and where you can be shot(B-more) 30 minutes away from a bougie neighborhood.
