The “States of Confusion” #statestereotype Twitter Contest Winners!

Yesterday, we ran a Twitter contest in honor of our author, Paul Jury‘s (States of Confusion) promotional video that went viral and took the internets by storm! “50 State Stereotypes in 2 Minutes” gave everyone the lulz, so we ran a #statestereotype Twitter contest to see who could give us more of their own hilarious state stereotypes, with the chance to win a copy of States of Confusion!

(Follow us on Twitter, NOW: @adamsmedia)

Below, the #winning entries – and don’t forget to check out Paul’s video – and heck, buy his book while you’re at it!
