West Virginia is a great place to call home. And while we love the Mountain State, it’s also good to have a sense of humor. These maps of West Virginia are not designed to be taken seriously. I hope you think these are funny.
1. How we see the United States.
This map hilariously (and accurately?) illustrates what West Virginia thinks of itself and the rest of the country. Do you agree with this one?
2. What West Virginians do well?
According to Ilya Gerner and Gerner's Tumblr page, we have the most retirees of the states.
3. Here's our state summed up with one sarcastic comment.
Beth Buczynski at Distractify did this one, which is meant to be funny. (It's probably not true but pepperoni rolls surely can't help our obesity problem.)
4. Here's a judgmental map of Morgantown.
Do you think this map from @kpatrickwv is funny?
5. This is a map of embarrassing Google searches.
Estately did this one, which features the most embarrassing of the things that each state most commonly searches for on Google. Chastity belts? Why?
6. This map shows each state's most common stereotype.
This map, from Cheezburger, doesn't really contain anything we don't know. Of course people think all West Virginians are coal miners.
7. One more Google search map.
Here's another map from Estately based on what each state Googles. I'm surprised that ferrets made the list. Ferrets? Really? I can honestly say I've never Googled ferrets.
8. Here's what we most like to eat.
Is anyone surprised that we like hot dogs more than anything else? This map is from Huffington Post and Yelp.
9. How Michiganders see us.
Melanie Shebel at Hubpages did this one. Apparently people from Michigan think Deliverance was shot here. (It was actually shot in Georgia.)
Which one of these maps is your favorite? Have you seen any other funny maps that should be on this list? Let me know in the comments!
