In the past, we examined slang usage in the South, the Midwest, New England, the West Coast, and Texas (please see the links in the “related” section to the right for these articles), but this unfortunately left out some states and regions. To remedy this situation, we chose to tackle a bit of slang in every state.
Although finding the most common slang term in every state would be quite interesting, it would be almost impossible to quantify, as hardly any words or phrases are universal across the population of the entire state — and some examples are shared by numerous states and regions.
Instead, we chose to go with the funniest terms. This way, we could include more obscure terms, which made for a less controversial and more humorous list. And trust us, there were some real doozies that wouldn’t have been included otherwise.
So join us on this laughable look at all of the most amusing slang terms from around the country. Feel free to deny that these wonky words are used in your state while simultaneously laughing at the obvious goofiness of the 49 others.
