Maine Stereotypes

Okay, so how did you score? We get it some of them are just way too true. But let's try again with some other Maine stereotypes. 

Growing up in Maine we hear a lot of things about who we are from outsiders. But what do those people from the outside know anyways? Alright, maybe we can put down the lobster claw, calm down a little bit, and just accept the fact that we are who we are. We have heard some other ridiculous ones though. Just because you are from Maine does not mean you automatically are a red neck. Most of us are but not all of us. Just because we didn't have a specialist for miles and miles away doesn't mean we can't learn it ourselves. That's why God created YouTube. And another thing, just because it snows six months out of the year doesn't mean that it snows all of the time. Most of our roads are paved, there are a couple of towns that are still working on it but most a paved. We have indoor plumbing. And you know what? We have had it for a while thank you very much. So here are just a few more things that are a little bit true. Sure there are some things that we do that most other people think is insanity. But we have a lot of fun with it too. All joking aside there are a couple of things we Mainer do that are better than anyone else too. Being in a harsh winter environment has taught us to appreciate some of the smaller things in life. To take it as it comes and find a way to make things happen. We made boots that go around the world and we have the best seafood out of anywhere. But for one more laugh at ourselves check out these memes that are just too perfect for us Mainers.
