19 Weird Things That Are So, So Ohio
Ohio, the heart of it all.
Some people may think there's nothing to see in Ohio. Those people are wrong.
We happen to have this beauty, an art installment called Field of Corn, but commonly referred to as Cornhenge.
And the annual Butter Cow exhibit at the Ohio State Fair.
Or the whale building in Cleveland, which everyone drives by, but nobody knows what's inside.
Can't forget about the giant Longaberger basket building.
And these lovely road signs on the way to Cincinnati.
Forget ball pits — kids in Ohio play in pools of corn kernels.
Girls sunbathe on the roof because we don't have beaches.
Heck, you can even drive your horse and buggy to Walmart if you want.
But you also have to remember that at any point, you can get stuck behind a tractor.
Everyone loves our creepy-ass talking Smokey the Bear statue that magically knows kids' names.
And trips to Handel's Ice Cream, where the Ohio dedication to sports is proudly part of the advertising.
There's of course the most intense sports thing of all sports things: the Ohio State–Michigan rivalry.
We even wear these buckeye necklaces, which none of us will admit are friggin' hideous.
Ask an Ohioan about the weather and most of us will just sigh.
We're used to getting enough snow to make an igloo (and rent it out, apparently).
Ohioans think it's normal to spell Ohio with your arms literally anywhere you go outside of Ohio.
And anywhere, anytime, you can scream "O-H" just to hear that "I-O" come ringing back.
The unofficial condiment of Ohio is ranch dressing.
And of course, Ohio wouldn't be Ohio without our unofficial state sport: CORN HOLE.
