Fun talk:West Virginia

While I get the humor of showing South and North Korea, many people will not get the joke. Something like this might work better. There ARE people, especially low-end desk-workers in Washington D.C. who think that we are the same fucking state

Something needing removed[edit]

"Outsiders are often taken aback by the suspicious, easily riled, and apparently hostile nature of the locals. West Virginia is probably the source of the term "backwards" to mean uncultured, because to outsiders, people think and act opposite to how outsiders might instinctively think and act. But think of it this way: you'd automatically be suspicious too if your state had been treated for 100 years like some kind of colony. It's really not a bad place, and populated in general by not bad people. Now get lost, y'heah?"

Whoever wrote this has clearly never actually visited West Virginia, and this is not humor it's just slander, I suggest it be removed, or replaced with something that's actually funny.

it won't be removed, because generally we in WV are assumed to be inbred troglodytes with no human emotion or reason beyond hatred of black people.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
Actually it won't be removed because all the state articles are mocking in tone. Most end up in the fun: namespace as a result. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 17:54, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
