New Yorkers are Arrogant and 49 Other State Stereotypes in Two Minutes [VIDEO]

Ever come across the show on History called “How the States Got Their Shapes?”  It’s based on a book of the same title.  For a geography nerd like me, that was a great read. Just like every state has a story on their shape, every state has a stereotype about its people.  Author Paul Jury playfully points out the bad ones in a promo video he calls ’50 State Stereotypes in Two Minutes.’

Jury, who just wrote a book called ‘States of Confusion: My 19,000-Mile Detour to Find Direction,’ squeezes out the hate from sea to shining sea in a mere 120 seconds.

From the chill lifestyle of Hawaii (“If you lived here, you’d be lazy too”) to the arrogance of New York (“World’s 14th biggest city, first biggest ego”), Jury leaves no state untouched.

Don’t have the stomach to see him rip all the states in our fine union? No sweat. Check out the transcript to pick and choose which you’d like to see. Otherwise, grab some popcorn – or at two minutes, at least a piece of candy corn – and enjoy Jury’s send-up.
