MO Posted in Missouri June 19, 2015 by Jill Beaverson 9 Ways You Can Always Spot Someone From Missouri…No Matter Where They Are We Missouri folks have our own peculiarities. It’s very easy to spot us, even when we’re away from our home state. Here are 9 dead giveaways: 1. Cardinals gear commons.wikimedia.org We are rabid St. Louis Cardinal fans and like to advertise it. 2. Use of the term "Hoosier" www.flickr.com Only in Missouri do people use "hoosier" or some derivative as a synonym for redneck. 3. Shockingly bright sneakers volleyballcentral.net What's with the neon? Lighting for after dark? 4. Use of the term "Float Trip" commons.wikimedia.org Any type of canoe or river rafting excursion is called a float trip. End of story. 5. Fancy work out clothes Victoriassecret.com Hey, you need to look good at the gym. Or the grocery store. Or your kid's graduation. Dazzling, expensive work out clothes are the "in" thing for ladies in the St. Louis and Kansas City 'burbs. 6. The Mullet flickr.com In Southern Missouri, the mullet never went out of style. You never know when it's going to be 1986 again. 7. Asking where you went to high school In Missouri, your high school is indicative of your socio-economic status, academic ability and sometimes even religion. And we're not afraid to ask. 8. Long Island Iced Teas flickr.com Again, an '80s favorite that never went out of style in Missouri. How often do you see this potent super-liquor cocktail ordered in other states? Probably not too much. 9. Budweiser beer enwikipedia.org When we don't want something quite as potent as the Long Island Iced Tea, we'll always be loyal to Bud. Ah, stereotypes. How do you spot a Missourian?
