You Won’t Believe Arkansas Is #1 In This Hilarious Recent Study
I love these articles that pick up a few items on a list somewhere, turn them into a database then compile a score based on those metrics to prove some point that no one knows or cares about in the first place. Congratulations Arkansans, we are the #1 most Redneck State in the Union!
The website WorldPopulationReview.com took two data points to come up with this, the number of mobile homes per 100 home units, and the number of Walmarts per million people. While I will admit we have a lot of mobile homes in Arkansas, hey, affordable housing is affordable housing, right? But the Walmart thing is a little unfair, after all, Arkansas is the home of the Walton family and therefore the home of Walmart. Of course, there are more Walmarts in Arkansas than anywhere else, Duh!
Your Top 10
State Redneck Score
- Arkansas 37.2
- Mississippi 35.1
- New Mexico 33.1
- Alabama 32.97
- South Carolina 32.1
- West Virginia 31.8
- Wyoming 31.6
- Kentucky 28.5
- Louisiana 26.7
- Oklahoma 25.9
But Wait, What about...
I'm not sure how or where you find all of these stats but there might be a few Redneck metrics that should have been considered in the final results;
- How many 12 oz cold-beers can the average person hold in their t-shirt while still wearing it?
- Watermelon seed spitting contest winners per 1 million population?
- National Corn Hole/Washers/Horseshoe Champions in the State?
- Shoe-optional Churches?
- Spit cup capacity to cleaning ratio.
- Million Chickens per million population.
- Average # of Tractor Dealerships per metro area.
- Police calls to wedding receptions per year.
If you would like to see the full report be our guest, but like a said, I think they may have missed a few measurements. Can you think of any more?
Jeff Foxworthy's definition of Redneck is a "glorious absence of sophistication". If the shoe fits, wear it... unless of course, it's Shoe-Optional Church.
Fly your #1 Redneck State flag high and proud Arkansas, we love ya.
