People from Wisconsin have an immense amount of state pride. That’s why they will never admit certain things that might go against that. Here are 11 things people from Wisconsin will never admit (out loud).
1. I've never been fishing before.
While many people from Wisconsin have had at least one fishing experience, some of us haven't.
2. The Bears aren't a bad organization.
Okay, the Bears still suck--even after that Thanksgiving debacle. But they are a storied franchise and have been a worthy opponent over the years.
3. I like beer from other states.
This one is a killer, because we are so proud of our Wisconsin brewing tradition. So when we stray, we definitely don't want to admit it.
4. People from Minnesota are okay.
We love to rag on people from Minnesota, but they are pretty nice actually.
5. I've never been to the state fair.
Seriously EVERYONE goes to the state fair and it is definitely thought to be weird if you haven't.
6. The weather here stinks.
We all know Wisconsin weather can be awful, especially during winter, but to admit it almost makes it worse.
7. That dessert isn't homemade.
You're not a bad person if you don't make a dessert from scratch for a potluck or church function, but find a woman who will admit that.
8. I'm really sick of cheese.
We love cheese. On everything. But we can have more than our fill sometimes. Although admitting that out loud is pretty much sacrilege.
9. We are bad drivers.
Most of us are responsible, but we do lead the country in DUIs and get involved in many other non-alcohol related accidents.
10. Going to Chicago is fun.
We definitely can feel inferior when people say things like "OMG, Chicago has this place and you don't?" But we should feel confident and admit that Chicago is kinda cool.
11. We kinda do have an accent.
We get made fun of for our accent, which is why we deny it so vehemently. But it's there. That, and our colorful sayings/Wisconsinisms.
