Do you love your state? Probably. Hopefully, at least.

But do you love everything about your state? Of course not.

So if you took a few moments you could definitely come up with some barbed, perhaps even bitter, description of your home. And that's exactly how some people recently chose to respond to a European who asked, "Americans, how would you summarize your state in one sentence?"

Here is every state in the union, described perhaps more unhappily than the departments of tourism might appreciate...

Alabama

Come on, Alabama! That's just not true. You're the first state...alphabetically.

Alaska

The best thing to come out of Alaska is probably salmon? The worst is definitely Sarah Palin, though.

Arizona

Arizona is the hottest state. Don't mind me, but I don't want to live anywhere where I have to check my shoes for scorpions.

Arkansas

Arkansas is also the only state that has a whole other state in its name. Kansas is very different from Arkansas, however.

California

As someone who's lived in California for quite some time, I can say with certainty that it has a lot of stuff, but that stuff isn't necessarily better than other states' stuff.

Colorado

I'm surprised this one didn't have anything to do with weed. Or snowboarding. Or snowboarding while smoking weed.

Connecticut

Honestly why leave home when you have Frank Pepe, the best pizza pie in the whole dang country?

Delaware

Is it, though? I don't know anyone from Delaware, and I was pretty sure that was because no one actually lived there.

Florida

What about Disney World! They forgot Disney World!

Georgia

Love that about the south. Also, peaches. They have really good peaches there.

Hawaii

It's true that everything is really expensive in Hawaii. But that's OK because it's worth it.

Idaho

No, I mean Idaho! Where else would a country get its potatoes?

Illinois

Do you know what Illinois looks like besides Chicago? Yeah, me neither.

Indiana

This about sums it up. Parks and Precreation really put Indiana on the map, though.

Iowa

I always forget about Iowa. Apparently, that's not such a rare thing.

Kansas

The best thing about Kansas is when you leave it and you can say, "Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore."

Kentucky

This sounds pretty great to me. Who wants to plan a trip?

Louisiana

New Orleans more than makes up for the rest of Lousiana! Gumbo forever!

Maine

Hey, that's three halves. Math doesn't work like that, and Maine doesn't either. To be fair, though, Stephen King is the first thing I associate with Maine.

Maryland

When I think Maryland, I think, "Next to Washington, D.C." Just me?

Massachusetts

As someone who once lived in Massachusetts, this isn't exactly true. There's a third season, and it's St. Patrick's Day.

Michigan

Is this directed at people in Michigan or people who come to Michigan? Either way, I agree.

Minnesota

It doesn't get much more north or more white than Minnesota. And by white I mean snow and people.

Mississippi

Mississippi has a river! And the most fun state name to spell. Don't sell yourself short, Mississippi.

Missouri

Sounds like the weather in Missouri is misserable. Get it?

Montana

Nebraska

Nevada

New Hampshire

New Jersey

New Mexico

New York

North Carolina

North Dakota

Ohio

Oklahoma

Oregon

Pennsylvania

Rhode Island

South Carolina

South Dakota

Tennessee

Texas

Utah

Vermont

Virginia

Washington

West Virginia

Wisconsin

Wyoming
