Do you Okies know what you're talking about?
Okay Oklahomans, here's your chance to prove just how much you know about the Sooner State! There is indeed, a lot to know! In terms of slang, lingo, phrases, trivia, favorite foods, local hotspots, highways, and expressions, the Sooner State truly is unique. If an out-of-stater were to visit, he or she might be thrown off by phrases like icebox, buggy, sooner, fraidy-hole, packing, and so much more. People tend to lump together middle-of-the-country states like Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Nebraska and Iowa, but they're not the same at all. Each state has it's own quirks and traditions. People even lump Oklahoma in with Texas, but that's so not right. Oklahoma and Texas are rivals, not to mention completely different... Even if you all say "y'all."
Have these words and expressions sounded similar to you at all? Think you know the answers to a lot of them? Then odds are that you ARE a bonafide Oklahoma local. There's about four million of you, so you are somewhat rare. And even though Oklahoma is known for it's distinct Panhandle shape, only about 1 percent of you live in there area! Crazy facts right? It's fun learning new things about the state that you grew up in, or the state that you've spent many years living in. You'd be surprised how much you pick up just by living in a state. And you're quick to pick up on how different the state is from where you came from. If this all sounds like a fun time to you, then you'd definitely enjoy all the quizzes that Women.com has to offer. Go ahead, hit start, and enjoy a 2 minute mental break. You'll be smiling for the rest of your day.
