States That Can Be Described By A Single Photo

States That Can Be Described By A Single Photo October 1, 2017

New York is so accurate it's not even funny. 

Alabama

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Well, it's definitely not the most upscale state. But who cares? There's tons of stuff to do, like wax poetic about riding ATVs across muddy trailers, shooting stuff with a rifle, and the kids can even join in on the fun too. There's even a free broom wherever you live! I'd certainly love to have a free broom if a random dude gave me one. Trust.

Alaska

Because of course. This could get mistaken for Russia, but in actuality, Alaska boast some of most coolest views this side of a coffee cake. Where else are you going to find two pugilist bears entrenched in a passionate streetfight – whilist also being captured by eager onlookers looking for their next filterd photo to post up on social media?

Arizona

IMAGE BY: Imgur

The heat is real. Who know the west coast was so succeptable to a consistent amount of fires? not me. Arizona is cool because no other state embodies a "Risk/Reward" mentality more than them. The letters are bold on the sign because we all know deep down in our hearts that a fellow Arizonian will attempt tp fart in the forest, despite everyone else telling him not to.

Arkansas

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Expect no less. Of all the states in the USA, Arkansas always reminds me of the first level of every single Tony Hawk Pro Skater game after the year 2002. The streets seem sketchy, but not so sketchy that you'll get robbed in broad daylight by a group of little 7th graders hellbent on getting enough quarters to band together and finally beat their cooler older brothers in Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 at the local dilapidated arcade.

California

[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

100% accurate. So accurate, a tech bro doesn't even need to fall into an avocado toast stupor to find the recipe for the secret flavor he wanted to debut at his blockchain-backed smoke shop. His colleagues finally received funding and and for one whole weekend, they rented Bird scooters and chanted music from The 1975 until their batteries emptied.

Colorado

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Don't even question it. Just accept it. There's a reason why the "South Park" series is based in Colorado. And looks at this lady, thinking she's gonna trult live her true life and be a flying squirrel. She's not, cause that doesn't even look like a competent wingsuit to fly the friendly skies before 9pm at night. BOSH!

Connecticut.

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Because CT is all about fun. A pretty cool date idea is to throw rocks as close to boat as you can, and hope you don't get caught by security. It makes for good conversation, and the world kind of slows down in a way where you can get to know your significant other while also possibly breaking the law. Trust me, it'll be worth it by the time your wedding reception happens.

Delaware

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Accurate. Imean... Delaware has... uh, grass, and ummm ... ROADS! Yeah, it has those things. It also has ice cream shops and a McDonalds, of that's your thing. But you wouldn't be able to see it in this photo, ecause this pretty much encapsulaties Delaware. Delaware seriously looks like a video game that has an incredibly small draw distance, and the textures haven't loaded yet.

Florida

IMAGE BY: Imgur

All its missing is an alligator. No other state has the sheer amount of zaniness and memes as Florida. Literally anything and everything can happen in this state, and depending on who you are, you'll either love it or loath it. In regards to this photo, I'm less surprised about the erson ring a zebra, and I'm personally more interested in the unassuming Toyota Prius near it.

Georgia

IMAGE BY: Imgur

"Peches". Georgia is one of those iconic states that unfortunately always seem t ocath a bad rap for being the poster child for "The South". You would think someone in the state would realize the error of their ways when trying to spell "peaches" with the same sprain can they also used to write "free candy" on their dirty white Chevy Astro van, but nope!

Hawaii

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Literally this. Hawaii isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Sure, there's beautiful beaches, super-clear oceans and water, a slew of irresistable attractions, but you'll never know if an active volcano will erupt and melt that Jeep Patriot Your friend Thatcher rented to mack on girls. If all else fails, just hop in a boat and sail to another island. You'll be FIIIIIINNNNEEEEE.

Idaho

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Yeah, or you might get potatoes thrown at you. And Potatoes hurt. A lot. So much so that they feel almost as hard as a softball if you lob one hard enough. Other than that, maybe you can fly a kite or something, but that seems like it'll gett boring pretty fast. Or if a bird steals it. Belioeve me, I know the feeling of a bird stealing a kite, and it's upsetting as well as embarrasing.

Illinois

IMAGE BY: Imgur

lol? To be perfectly honest, the only things I actually know about Illinois is that their Chicago basketbll team used to be good, they have questionable taste in Hip-Hop music, and they're pretty close to Indiana. Also they like pizza, A LOT. So much so that it rivals New York pizza. Other than that, put a gun to my head, and I still couldn't name a single city in the state lol.

Indiana

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Hell is real. And it may as well be Indiana. One of the weirdest kids shows in my heyday was a series called Erie, Indiana, and it was essentially The X-Files, but for pre-teens. A weird episode that stuck out to me was one where an unassuming family slept in tupperware the size of human bodies, and there were murmurs that they were possibly aliens. For that reason, Indiana has always been weird to me. Also Mike Pence.

Iowa

IMAGE BY: Imgur

So accurate. Iowa is surprisingly chill. Too Chill, like the state is hiding something diabolically sinister, and under our very noses to boot.Everything is simultaneously close and far away, and while the nightlife is surprisingly fun, the rest of the state looks as of a 7-year old drew the horizon using only blue, white, and green crayons

Kansas

IMAGE BY: Imgur

No joke. The single most interesting thing about Kansas are it's basketball teams, and that's saying something. I had to google hard to find info for this flyover state because, frankly, I kept getting confused about all the Kansases people keep repping. I can't believe people often call this the "state people forget is a state" state.

Kentucky

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Yep. Kentucky Blue. Kentucky. KEEEEEENTUCKY!!! Good 'ol Kentucky. I can't understand why people aren't talking more about Kentucky. When Kentucky leaves, every other state asks, "Where's Kentucky?" But jumping out the closet... KEEEEEENTUCKY! Kentucky is so cool...

Louisiana

IMAGE BY: Imgur

I mean.... Louisiana is a lot of things. Kevin Gates and Lil' Wayne are from New Orleans, there's Mardi Gras, good food, and GATORS! Just keep the crocs and stuff away from the kids, cause that's gonna be a weir 911 call to have to report and call in.

Maine

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Let it snow. Let it snow everywhere. Also, when there's no snow, there's fish, and there's nothing better to do than wait aimlessly for a fish using your lure. Fishing may as well be a sport in this state, even if a little bit of snow ruins your day.

Maryland

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

The land of cheese balls. Maryland is the M of DMV, and also where The Wire takes place. But really, we're all here for the cheese balls; thos sweet, delicious, nutricious, and suspicious cheese balls. While not as delectble as your typical Cheetos, they absolutely do more than get the job done.

Massachusetts

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Wicked big stawm coming. And this is coming from one of the original state in the USA. Massachusetts is equivalent to the prom queen in high school, and all the other state are the rest of the class. While The state is good, it's still not great, not by a longshot. Not by a longshot at all.

Michigan

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Oh Michigan. The state of Motown, a prominent lake, and Motor City. The state definitely had it's ups and downs, what with the failed businesses, water issues and all, but the bigwig politicians swear that they're making changes for the better. I'll believe it when they finally make a muscle car that has a built in Macarena horn.

Minnesota

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Seems accurate. I love a snowman who can hold their liquor on a whim. But back to Minnesota, a place where there's a boat for every 6 people, so don't worry about drowning I guess. Are the Timberwolves gonna be good now that Jimmy Butler finally left? The world may never know, like the center of a Tootsie Pop.

Mississippi

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Nothing out of the ordinary here. Just two dudes having a manly chat on the Mississippi river. Eating a wholesome lunch. Nothing much to see here, except for the fact that the two are are just comfortably chilling in a river with not a care in the world.

Missouri

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Yup. Pretty much Missouri in a cute little nutshell. Finding Burger Kings might be tough, but other than that, heading to Missouri sounds like a total and complete blast. I say that because a regular munday day could turn into a potential opportunity every day.

Montana

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Drinking beer with a bear. No big deal. Cause stuff like this onlin happens in Montana. Whenever I think of Montana, I think of cowboys, the great outdoors, and that one show that had a lot of cowboys and old -timey stuff. God bless the old-timey stuff.

Nebraska

IMAGE BY: Imgur

You wouldn't understand unless you're a Nebraskan. To understand a photo like this and not be a Nebraskan is hard enough as is, especially if the only thing you know about Nebraska is that it was on your test that one time in elementary school. You know, the one with that one kid who wouldn't share an Oreo.

Nevada

IMAGE BY: Imgur

It's missing a group of drunk people stumbling in the back, but otherwise it's pretty accurate. Nevada isn't just Las Vegas, there's so much more to see, but that's for another day. The state is finally getting tangible professional sports teams, and there's alwahys fun and mishaps to be had when tourists visit.

New Hampshire

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Right? New Hampshire always struck many as a pretty elitist state for some strange  reason. Turns out, the locals aren't too shabby at all, and a lot of the times they're pretty correct when it comes to the assesments of things like food, attractions, and warm brew.

New Jersey

IMAGE BY: Imgur

The land of bros. Some people might call this "The Long Beach of New York", but then again, pretty much no one does. There immense fun to be had in New Jersey, where the people love to tan, party hard, and get messed up... Only to cure their hangovers with breakfast and start over again the next night.

New Mexico

IMAGE BY: Imgur

What else is there? Okay, that was harsh of me. Of course there more to New Mexico than meets the eye. It's the state of the eclectic Yucca flower, which is a pretty cool flower if I do say so myself. Okay, that's also mild of me. It's not that cool either, but hey, you officially now learned something about New Mexico that you didn't know before.

New York

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

The Big Apple: the city that never sleeps, and also there ginormous street rats are common and hustle pizza like no one has ever done before. What's not to love about the city that has been featured in countless movies, shows, and media for numerous decades? NOTHING, except for the secondhand pizza-eating mice and rats as large as a typical housecat. Yikes.

North Carolina

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Education is important. Also somebody totally needs to get fired for such a huge mistake. North Carolina natives are better than this! C'MON GUYS! Y'all have Cam Newton and the Carolica Panthers for crying out loud! UGH, this is why NC can't have nice things, except for surprisingly good sports teams every once in a while.

North Dakota

IMAGE BY: Imgur

-__________________-

You gotta be kidding me North Dakota. You have some nerve trying to out Florida Florida at their own game, but you're playing a losing game, and even if you somehow miracoulously win, you pretty much already lost. It doesn't take a group of rocket scientists, geniuses, and tarot card readers to see that.

Ohio

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Exactly. You guys got lucky with Baker Mayfield after losing LeBron James to the Los Angeles Lakers, but that luck can only take you so far. Besides Drew Carey, Chip tha Ripper, and Kid Cudi, there's still tons of wasted potential to never be seen in Ohio, so get ready to never see any of that anytime soon, hahahahahahaha...

Oklahoma

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Quakenado. After a quick Google search, Urban Dictionary, a respected source in the eductional community, lists it as when a tornado and an eqarthquake happens at the same time, and its most commonly seen in Oklahoma for some reason. Also, the Oklahoma City thunder is there, but that's a story for another day my friend.

Oregon

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Hipster state. Also pretty snobby, but not nearly as snobby as Washington or Massachusetts, which is a plus. Portland is cool at least; it has a pretty cool skatepark made out of concrete that was in a Tony Hawk game that one time. You never know who you're gonna meet, cause you may either run into abarista or a CEO of a boutique iPhone case making company or something.

Pennsylvania

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

These things happen. Pennsylvania is pretty iconic in it's own right. Fictional Character Rock Balboa is loved there, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller are from there, and it was one of the first states. I think. I should read more. Well anyways, I'm more worried about the horse than the drunk amish teens because even if the teens were under the influence, the horse should be fine. I think.

Rhode Island

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Not only is this accurate, it's also the greatest image you'll ever see. Rhode island is surpringly seems like one of the funnest places to be in the United States, if only because of zany stuff like this. Two scorpions, in mortal combat, like Scorpion in Mortal Kombat, is truly a sight to behold. The absolute coolest thing about this pic is that the scorpions even have weapons, which is pretty redundant considering that scorpions are already pretty lethal in their own right.

South Carolina

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Of course. Because of course dudes with Confederate flag chaps, cowboy hats, and walking alongside the beach is totally South Carolina in it's very essence. Look not further my internet friends. And yes, two bros walking along the beach wearing the same shorts while their backs kiss the sun isn't suspect in the slightest bit. 

South Dakota

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Mhm. This isn't too unexpected, but that's just me. South Dakota is just one of those states that are...shall we say... uncool in a cool way. Mount Rushmore is there in Keystone, and theres a couple neat attractions, but the best way to sum it all up is "neat". Nothing more, but also nothing less, just "neat".

Tennessee

IMAGE BY: Imgur

The decency state. The few things this state has going for it. Nashville, Young Buck, all that pretty much. Also people who love to get offended by the smallest infractions of indecency this side og the hill. It's pretty unbelievable how much this occurs per capita, but it happens, so okay.

Texas

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Anything and everything can and will happen here. There's literally nothing else like texas, and that could be a terribly phenomenal thing, or a phenomenally terrible thing, depending on what side of the coin you look at.Texas is everything, and nothing, at the same damn time. It's Texas.

Utah

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

The single mothers state. Utah is a weird one. The jazz are middling, but decent, and the state gets a bad rap for being the one that's totally fine with a dude having a ton of wives. That's gotta be daunting to juggle, like a guy having to juggle all of those people and personalities. cause polygamy may or may not be cool there, depending on who you ask.

Vermont

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Not quite Canada but close enough. Its very close in the running to being basically the most Canadian state in the United States Of America, and that's currently not such a bad thing. Their colleges are proficient, their grass is pretty green most of the time, and it always seem like the most old-timey state of all of them.

Virginia

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Oh Virginia. Known for moonshine that was second to no other state, Virginians have it hard in a lot of ways. Being one of the 13 original colonies, Virginia boast an abundant amount of stuff that'll keep horned-rimmed wearing accountants at ease for many years to come. Good job Virginia.

Washington

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

The Poet society state. The state where it has a city that rains A LOT, and "Grey's Anatomy" takes place there, if that's your thing. Get ready to be serenaded by a dude who has exactly 7 multicolored beads in his beard while his partner endlessly tells you about the time she chained herself to a tree while chanting third-wave feminist talking points from Wikipedia.

West Virginia

IMAGE BY: Imgur

The Walmart state. West-Ver-frickin'-ginia! We made it folks, and now I feel sully. Nah,  I actually feel good cause you're never going to find better deals there here my friends! This happens to also be the state of productivity and getting the very most out of your dollar, so thank you very much, West Virginia.

Wisconsin

IMAGE BY: Imgur

Liquor and cheese. Enough said. Wisconsin is the type of place where I assume a lot of 80s movies were inspired by. I have no idea what rumchata is, but apparently its a big enough deal to warrant space on a sign. Now all I can think about is liquor and cheese.

Wyoming

IMAGE BY: Imgur
[dx_custom_adunit desktop_id="RTK_K67O" mobile_id="RTK_5yk0"]

Absolutely nothing. I mwan, It looks like a rectangle, CHECK! Old Faithful is there, CHECK! Other than that however... I got nothing. Nothing at all.

Hold on... I got something comng...  it's right off the tip of... my tongue...AH FORGET IT!
