Are you ready to put yourself to the test? To the Michigan test, that is. This seventeen question Michigan lingo quiz will really push your knowledge of the Great Lakes State to the extreme. Michiganders really have a unique way of life in their upper-midwestern glove-shaped state that has lent to a lot of lingo, mannerisms, local foods, favorite traditions, and more. Words that sound like gibberish to out-of-staters fit right in with the Michigan lexicon. For example, Yooper, Faygo, troll, Vernor's, euchre, and Kalamazoo, just to name a few. If you're not a proper Michigander, these words either mean nothing at all to you or mean something entirely different without context. Life is just different by the lakes, and Michigan locals wouldn't want it any different. Even if it does get bitterly cold at times. It's nothing that they aren't prepared to handle!
