Louisiana really is like another state compared to the South, I hope to make it clear in this list. Please not this entire list is satire, but if your from LA you will get all of it.
1. Louisiana has the best culture in the South - you might deny it, but ask anyone here and their all gonna have the same answer.
2. Every direction is "down there/here"- even if your talking about the north
3. Everything past Alexandria is the North - What's sad is that the state literally accepts it as fact.
4. New Orleans is not the place to be - from the crime to a bunch of drunk Yankees, all Louisianians know to stay away from NOLA.
5. Nothing is ever built on time - You know that any construction project that say's it will be completed in two years is full of BS. After court cases, change of management, and maybe a strike, you'll be lucky if you see it break ground in two years.
6. Corruption is a way of life - for further explanation just look at our history
7. Catholicism is the unofficial state religion - The capital city has ten Catholic elementary/middle schools and three Catholic high schools, there are two non catholic schools, but who cares their all going to hell. The only area that would state otherwise is Shreveport...damn Yankees.
8. Interstates are called Four-lanes - don't ask me why, that's just how things are.
9. Parents tell you to not stare at 'blacks' - While some areas of the state are progressive, I can remember being told not to stare (at blacks) through-out my childhood.
10. Popeye's has the worst food - We appreciate that they are trying to bring Louisiana around the country, but honey fake Louisiana will never beat real Louisiana.
11. Whenever something new opens, it's the place to be - It could be a strip-mall or a dollar store, we don't care. It's new, that means we gotta give a nice ole Louisiana welcome.
12. Everything is: Sir, Ma'am, Mr., Ms. - Don't even THINK about not using it, even if you think about not using them your parents will slap you.
13. Physical Discipline is the only discipline - I have memories of hiding under furniture to try and escape a beating.
14. Cajun Food is the best food - Don't let anyone say otherwise
15. The South wishes they were us - From caliming Cajun Food is 'Southern Food' to Atlanta using the Mississippi River and good old Jazz Music in the 1996 Opening Ceremonies. Just get a life and make your own culture.
16. Louisiana Rich are the worst - From being proud that they once owned slaves, to being arrogant douches. Avoid all wealthy Louisianians, for your own protection because I promise you that you will want to kill them.
17. Southern Belle's - They still exist here
18. Sport's are the only acceptable activity - Coming from someone who is in the arts, schoolyard life was hard. Especially if you did not play some type of sport.
19. 'Gay' is an insult - I remember doing everything to prove I was not
20. This list is too small - There is so much that you learn when living here, it's not even funny.
