St. Louis Memes
A map of the U.S. as seen by St. Louis.
We Missourians get stuck with a lot of stereotypes -- meth heads, hillbillies, storm watchers. It's about time we fought back with a few broad brush strokes of our own.

Hanna Katee Williamson's map of the U.S. according to a St. Louisan went viral on Facebook last week, earning more than 2,700 shares from St. Louis Memes.

On the map, St. Louis is marked as civilization, Kansas City is the Lou's ugly stepsister, and everything south of I-70 is just labeled "METH."

Williamson's map reminded us of this two-year-old video of state stereotypes. Missouri is No. 1! ...in meth.

If St. Louis is the center of civilization, I guess civilization now means crime, gangs, drugs, and poverty.

It's like, they don't believe you when you show your experiences in your resume, an dthen when you give a reference, why can't they call them up and ask? Are their fingers broken?

Because some of us are stuck here beyond our control.

Ditto. Seriously, try to get someone who praises your work to even give you a letter of reference, "that's not company policy."

And THIS is why I refuse to assimilate to the area. Kind of like a scrawny guy who drives a huge truck. Certainly trying to make up where they're lacking elsewhere.

When I worked in Yellowstone everyone was like "Missouri? Where's that?" and when I tried to convince people to come here they were like "Yeah.. I'd rather not." so we can't really talk.

This really shows in the Job Market here, try finding a job here if your job experiences are not in companies known here. Clayton schools actually asked me for letters of recomendations from supervisors I gave as references...

I would like to point out that it's no longer cool to be a hipster in SoCal... We were doing it WAY before it was cool

I have seen this shared a bunch of times, each claiming it was filled out by someone from a different city or state.

And once again, little Rhode Island is completely ignored.

Every time this has been posted there has been a whole bunch of douche bags bitching that it isn't accurate, or it makes us look uneducated, or how some hick must have written it. It's supposed to be funny you fucking retards not accurate. It just goes to show how politically correct so many of you are and how badly you want to correct people. It. Is. For. Comedy. Dickheads.

I love this, sent it to a FB friend from St. Louis, and no reply. Some people have no sense of humor.

It's supposed to be a joke. In place of "cold and rainy" for Washington I would have put in big bubble letters "HOME OF GRUNGE!!" :D

I think this map accurately portrays the ignorance of many Missourians, not Saint Louisians. $100 says the girl that made it is uneducated and from one of the southern counties...

As I said in my comment on St. Louis Memes: NorCal should be "Wine", SoCal should be "Housewives", Georgia should be "Black Housewives", New Jersey should be "Ugly Housewives", Colorado should be "Skiing and Pot", and Utah should be "Weirdos in dress shirts and ties on bikes".

Having traveled through some of this map, it is mostly true.  Course I moved from civilization to vacation..so I could be drunk most of the time.

Bob if you think StL has a lame Mardi Gras you and your friends are lame. This map is funny and the people that are offended are idiots.

yes yes yes from what i've seen on my many roadtrips. but california is wrong. only LA should say 'hipster.' the bay should say "asia minor, nerds, crack, and hipsters" SD and all the other coastal places should say "chillzone." and the whole eastern side south of SF should say "ghost town, meth, and are we there?"

St. Louis: We're smaller than Chicago and have a lame Mardi Gras.

Texas is wrong. The whole state has those funny people with cowboy hats and at least half the state is Mexico. Can't read what it says about the panhandle but if they got the rest wrong... Wota is a perfect illustration of Joizy. Mkay!
