We love to spend our free time cow tipping.

3. No one in the Midwest has dreams, they’re content to stay in their small towns forever.

I grew up in a town of 500 people and I’m damn proud of it, but that doesn’t mean for a second that I didn’t have dreams.

4. The Midwest is super conservative.

Iowa was the third state to legalize gay marriage. Not all of us have the same beliefs.
