    Not to break up the harmony here, but ...

    I've heard Coloradans derided as "Greenies," Californians as "Californicators", Iowans as "Idiots Out Running Around" and those from Illinois called "FIBs" and FISHTABs", but how about some others? "Chowderheads?"

    Not just generic insults like hick, redneck, cracker, hillbilly, etc., but state-specific. "Chedderheads" or "Cheesheads" for those from Wisconsin are more a complimentary term, no?

    Jewish humor: People from Michigan are Michiganers.

    Not the name of a state, obviously, but some of us call people from Baltimore Baltimorons.

    Meshugana is a yiddish word for someone who takes a vow of celibacy.

    But that's not how Michigan is spelled.

    When I first moved to Connecticut I noted constant references to Massachusetts drivers as Massholes.

    Yankee is a term of derision down here in the Deep South. And a versatile one, at that.

    It's on the shelf, right under the Baltimore Catechism...
