Can't watch the video but you are correct. Nebraskans do not "drawl."

I don't know any crackheads here, either.

Come on, it's a stereotype!

Usually stereotypes have some basis. I would expect a crack about corn.

I like Indiana's. I always thought it unfortunate that Indiana's slogan is "come enjoy that place that is in between you and that other place you are actually traveling to."

Virginia is my favorite - center of civilization to hicksville in 20 minutes flat, pretty spot on.
Parts of NH are full of Quebecois who have emigrated from north of the border; same in VT and ME...

Patriot fans can be pretty obnoxious..

"Everything is bigger in Texas; even our morons"

I was expecting something a little more creative and clever.

Last night on Radio-Canada (the French-language equivalent to the CBC), a public affairs show broadcast an approx. 15-minute report on the upcoming U.S. presidential election. The reporter travelled to Manchester and Nashua in NH to talk to people there about Obama, Romney, etc.

All of this took place in French.

You often hear people from NH, Maine, and also places like Woonsocket, RI or Lowell, MA, commenting on American current affairs in the Quebec media.

I was really disappointed in West Virginia's! They could have done a better job.

I expected to laugh more but hey, he only gave himself two minutes. LIving in Oregon, the 'joke' went over my non-dreadlocked head.
Loved the Maryland one, "Have Jeeves bring the lobster boat around" while holding champagne. Lol.
