Hey there, you Wisconsin local! Are you pretty familiar with Badger State? Spoiler alert: You should be VERY familiar with the Badger State if you want to have any hope of acing this tricky 19 question quiz all about the lingo and trivia of Wisconsin (Are You Wisconsin Enough To Ace This Tricky WI Lingo Quiz? Bet Not!!). Seriously, there is so much more than what meets the eye when it comes to this charming Midwestern state. People who don't live in the Midwestern tend to assume that all Midwestern states have the same lingo, cultures and traditions (especially when it comes to food and drinks), but each state is truly unique. That's what makes it so fun to connect with fellow locals over childhood memories and slang terms.

Which means you're probably no stranger to squeaky cheese curds, Leinenkugel, brats, fish fries, cold winter weather, Summerfest, Cheeseheads, bubblers, green and gold, mosquitoes, the Packers, right? But if none of that sounds too familiar, then you can't possible call the Badger State home!
