A Chicagoan View of the Midwest

It's been a rough few days for me, so it was a welcome pleasure to come across this map of how Chicagoans view the rest of the midwest (You can click on the picture to blow it up if necessary). I needed this laugh today.

After some consideration, here are some modifications I'd make to the list:
  • Iowa should start just west Elgin.
  • Downstate should start just south of Joliet.
  • Wisconsin needs to say "Cheese" much like Iowa does "Corn"
  • Indiana should include the Amish and car racing.
  • Gary, Indiana should be labeled, "The Armpit of America."
  • Borders of both Indiana and Wisconsin should include "Police Zone" since that's where Chicagoans always get ticketed.
  • Wisconsin should just be labled "The Lake House" because everyone has one there.
