Take your tongue and entrench it firmly in your cheek, Arkansas! These photographs and memes about the Natural State (and some taken from places around the state) will make you smile at the funny little things about our state as well as the quirks we have. Have a few laughs at our own expense—it’s all in good fun!
11. Stop water tower vandalism! Oh, wait...
Yeah, if anybody had plans on getting brave and climbing the water tower in Weiner, Arkansas to paint something that gets everyone's attention...you really can't follow up what's already there. Let perfection remain what it is.
10. Uninformed Wonka
If this wasn't one of the Condescending Wonka memes, I could just imagine actually hearing this from a smug East or West Coast dweller. There's often truth in the best humor, though; Razorback merchandise is as easily spotted in an Arkansas home just the same as you'd see a family portrait or a charcoal grill.
9. Welcome to Goobertown
Population: You and a couple other friends if you've got a good self-deprecating sense of humor enough to pose under this sign. Many visitors actually have posed at this very spot with a big grin that you could only find in a place named Goobertown.
8. Arkansas Snow
When we finally get some really wintry weather in 2016 we'll prepare for it like an apocalypse will hit the state and leave homes without pantries full of bread and refrigerators empty of milk. To be fair, though, it's the ice on the road that's more intimidating than snow piled five feet high at the door.
7. Where's This Wine From, Again?
I know you told me before, but I just can't recall where we got this great wine. I don't even remember the name of the town where we got it. I swear, I had the name of the place in front of me but I must have misplaced it. Are we there right now? Where are we?
6. The Gift That Keeps On Flippin
The town of Flippin is blessed with a name that automatically makes every place in town photo-worthy. Now, all you Flippin residents better be sure to get to the Flippin Church of God on Sunday. The whole Flippin community will be the better for it.
5. Who You Gonna Call?
Call the Flippin police! While you're at it, get the Flippin fire department out here too. Flippin emergencies...
4. It's Butt Rubbin' Good
Bad Byron is a marketing genius. Butt Rub seasoning looks like it comes in three sizes. Anyone who's feeling sassy enough can tell a store cashier they'd like to purchase a cookbook and get a large Butt Rub as well.
3. All Seasons
Just wait until early spring (or like last year where we experienced a ridiculously late spring) when you're starting out the day in a sweater and sweating by 3 pm. Layering clothes to adjust comfort levels throughout the day is pretty much an Arkansas winter standard.
2. Cash or Checks Only
The world's most recognized retail corporation takes all acceptable methods of payment. However, the Walmart Welcome Center in Bentonville is keeping it frustratingly and humorously old school by having cash-or-check only registers in the gift shop.
1. Arkansas Lottery Winner
California has enough money and now they have a billionaire jackpot winner due to the Powerball frenzy of 2016. Arkansas residents would've known how to spend that money better. Not saying we're superior, just selectively extravagant.
There are several clever memes and silly photos of real places here in Arkansas. What quirky places around the Natural State have given you a chuckle—either the name or something about the town or location that’s funny? Sound off in the comments with what you’ve got and give us some laughs!
