How Californians See America

Not that I (completely) agree with this, but I do think it's funny.

What do you mean Californians? That's pretty nearly how I see America, too. (except, the word "Awesome" is transposed to south-eastern PA)

Without trying to rain on anyone's fun, why do people have to make these things? I think this type of stuff just perpetuates stereotyping and division. I'm just saying.

I love that I consider myself a "loud obnoxious NY'er" living amongst the "religious nutballs" that actually DO try to force their religion on me DAILY!!!! You made me laugh again Jason.

I had no idea this had so much conversation around it! Kathy, if you think about it, this graph is really only making fun of one stereotype, and that would be the self-involved Californian who sees american life beginning and ending in California... and as with many stereotypes, this one does have a kernel of truth at it's center.

I do just think it's so funny how all of the Pacific Northwest is listed as "Coffee"

I love how the top 1/4 of the country is called "Canada."
