Listen up, city slickers

Ok, Atlanta natives seem to be about as clued in about Missouri (aren't there more cows than people there?) as I was about the South in general (do they pave the roads through the cotton fields?) heh. SOOOO, in honor of ignorance and my new citified friends--


1. Where would you be without sweet tea?? It was invented at the St. Louis World Fair. mmmmmhmmmmm. St. Louis, Missouri.

2. Kansas City has more miles of boulevards than Paris and more fountains than any city except Rome, Italy. It's reeeal pretty. That's Kansas City, Missouri.

3. Where would your Bulldog parties be without a little company named Anheuser-Busch and the biggest brewery in the nation?? Yep. It's in St. Louis.

4. Laura Ingalls, Huck Finn, Brad Pitt, Harry Truman -- need I say more?

5. The ICE CREAM CONE was invented in St. Louis when an ice cream vendor ran out of cups and asked a waffle vendor to lend his dough. Inventive minds put it together in Missouri.

6. Kansas City BBQ, St. Louis Blues, Ragtime....

7. It ties with TN as most friendly state...bordering EIGHT states.

8. The arch in St. Louey is the official Gateway to the West. This would not be America without the West!

9. Missouri is a snapshot of America. KC is a very western city born with railroads and cattle. St. Louis is pretty eastern--natives talk nasal and ask for "pop" instead of coke or soda. Northern MO is northern in culture and Southern MO is southern in culture. If you wanted to "see America", you could spend a few hours in MO and get it done!

10. It's more than just farmland, folks. The land is cheap. The lakes are plentiful and the fishing is fine. :)

Don't knock it 'til you try it. That's all I'm saying.

That's a wrap. Over.
