Living in Minnesota brings along with it a lot of stereotypes when talking with people from other parts of the country.  Growing up here I have pretty much heard it all.  From the accent to the hot dish (I didn't know what that was until I was about 10 or 11), to the long "Minnesota" good-bye to "Up North" to "you betcha" to bringing "bars" to a pot luck.  We, as Minnesotans have many things that people in other states THINK we are.  And some, not all, are fairly accurate.

Being someone who has lived most of her life here in this great state of Minnesota...  I have never been ice fishing.  Except for one time when I joined in at the fishing tournament on Gull Lake.  Other than that... nothing.  I don't even like fish.  Weird, right?  I hear so many people tell me that I just haven't had theirs, or their dad's, or some other "great batter" that would absolutely change my mind.  No.  Just like pretzels and unmelted butter.  Gross.

I love the "does everyone in Minnesota own a crockpot"?  Is that a Minnesota thing?  People in other states don't have crockpots?  Or is it that we make so many dips that require a crockpot?  I'm not sure.  And do other states have as many stereotypes as Minnesota does?
