There's something truly special about being from the Midwest.
But a lot of people don't really "get it." That's 'cause they're not from there.
Without further ado...
Whoops. That was supposed to say “the Midwest.”
Oh well. In the winter, it basically is the Himalayas.
Anyway, here are some pictures that only true Midwesterners will understand:
First of all, there's a dress code.
Do you have to have a piece of clothing with a wild animal on it in order to live in the Midwest? No.
But it certainly doesn’t hurt.
Remember taco nights?
As a Michigander, I personally feel a little attacked by this one and did not realize my favorite childhood dinner was something of a sham. What do non-Midwesterners do for taco night?!
And before you go thinking Midwesterners like spicy foods...
The picture above is the Midwestern version of Hot Ones.

And speaking of Midwestern snacks…
