State resident names, corrected.

You may have seen the list of state resident names. It’s a big list that tells you that a person from Texas is called a Texan, a person from California is called a Californian, and so on. However, you know and I know that there’s something wrong with the list; it just seems artificial. It’s like someone filled in the obvious ones (Iowan…) and then made up the rest.

Here, I present my corrected version of the fifty US state resident names.

    1. dang i thought i posted this. im gonna replace me with someone competent, if overqualified.
      windell’s name s are funner all right, but i ve lived in a few places, and people in call themselves and others bizarre things that outsiders never hear or think are just team names, but the teams were named after the people. ohions call ’emselves buckeyes; idahoans i know call emselves spuds, we oregonians are ducks not to mention beavers, and those of us in the state to the south are not "californicating" anything. we jerseyites hate the [ny] City kids calling us "bridge n tunnel people".
      there’s more but i got a cold. gnite, my fellow marycans

      not from nebraska, not a nebbish

  1. Utah Utahn, Utahan Utatian (Rhymes with “mutation”)

    Utard (variation of retard) is also pretty common.

    Yes, I am a Utard!

      1. We call pretty much anyone from the north woods of Minnesota, Wisconsin or Michigan a yuper. People that speak like the characters in Fargo… those are the type.

        I live in Wisconsin, and a lot of people call us Sconnies.

  2. whitefang here again.
    sorry, people from louisiana [pronounced loo-zey-anna] are simply losers
    every new yorker knows the guy from nebraska is a nebbish
