23 Words You’ll Only Understand If You’re From Vermont

Some words and phrases are universal, and others you’ll only understand if you’re from Vermont. The following are common things Vermonters say that let you know you’re at home in the Green Mountain State.  So grab your flannel, make yourself a bowl of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream (topped with maple syrup), get cozy in your barn, and listen to the cows moo in the pasture while you read this and see how many of these words you can relate to.  Let’s have a little fun, shall we?

Share this with your friends and see who is a Vermonter and who is a Flatlander disguised in tie-dye.

Disclaimer: Most images of Bull Pouts that are legally licensed for resuse were a bit graphic, so we opted for a picture of someone having fun ice fishing in Vermont. Jeezum Crow! It appears that including a perch was WAY more offensive. Please accept our apologies – it won’t happen again.
