OK, I think I just made up the word 'St. Cloudians'...but, you get what I'm trying to say.  People from central Minnesota may think they're just average Joe's living in a very ordinary area...but, we definitely have our quirks. We've managed to find a way to put our unique stink all over this town. People who aren't from our area are revealed to us when they don't know these 'St. Cloud basics'. If you've lived in this area your entire life and are surprised by anything on this list, are you even from here really?

  • If you don't have a photo of yourself sitting on the Gopher Bargain Center chair, are you even a person?
  • If you have to ask what 'St. Cloud Superman' is, we're going to kick you out of our group.
