Can we get an O-H-I-O? Did you know that nearly twelve million people get to call the great state of Ohio home? That's a pretty huge number! When as many as twelve million people live in a state, it's no wonder that a lot of good food, funny lingo, popular slang, and support for local sports teams come pouring out of that state. People like to think that all Midwestern states are the same (you just flyover them right?) but if you've made it this far, odds are that you know each and every state has their own unique traditions that make them, them. That of course goes for Ohio, too, and you're probably even biased to like Ohio a lot more than all of those other Midwestern States.

And why shouldn't you? Ohio has a little bit of it all, with four intense seasons (can you say hot-hot-hot summers and cold-cold-cold winters?), incredible sports teams, and local foods that are beyond delicious while also being ingenious (we're looking at you, Skyline Chili). You SHOULD have a lot of pride for the Buckeye State, and that being the case, here's your chance to prove how you're the most loyal Buckeye of all, caught up on every little piece of Ohio lingo. Hopefully phrases like Skyline Chili, Buckeyes, Wendy's, mushroom-hunting season, and euchre sound familiar to you... because otherwise you might be in the wrong place.

So if you're truly an Ohio local, step right up and put your state knowledge to the test! You just might score yourself a perfect 100%! Good luck!
