what are the stereotypical images evoked by your city, state and its citizens and culture?

for example, the stereotypical images of san francisco are trolleys, rice-a-roni, steep hills, the tv show full house, the golden gate bridge, tree-hugging sandal-wearing hippies, asian computer geeks, chinatown

When I tell people I'm from Indiana every once in awhile they will automatically think I have corn fields in my back yard or something. My friend told me that when he went to NYC to play in a baseball tournament, one of the kids from the other team that was from NJ asked him if he had ever been cow tipping before

This has been done to death

The South- Bible thumping, very conservative, yet friendly and down-to-earth. Lots of talk about going to church. And of course that disruptive War of Northern Agression. Women who wear too much make up.

People who like NASCAR and Ward Burton and shop at Walmarts and then at the other extreme people who are high falutin' snobs and belong to the Country Club.

Default Baltimore/Washington, D.C.

Baltimore
1. crab cakes
2. obsessed baseball fans
3. gangstas, thugs, and drug dealers

DC
1. Government bureaucrats
2. Congressmen and lobbyists
3. gangstas, thugs, and drug dealers.....and a mayor that was re-elected after he was caught doing crack with a prostitute in a sleazy motel

Chicago:

Big thick pizza, steak, Sears Tower, Buckingham Fountain (Thanks to "Married with Children"), fat brat-eating nasal-accented Bears fans (thanks to SNL and, well, all the fat brat-eating nasal-accented Bears fans here)

Illinois: Chicago in the upper right-hand corner, corn everywhere else

Connecticut:

Waspy towns, leafy suburbs, men in plaid playing golf at the country club with sweaters around their necks, ivy leaguers, Wall Street execs.

And trust me, CT isn't all like that.
