Maryland's stereotype: We're rich seafood-loving snobs

June 04, 2011|By Luke Broadwater

In promoting his book, "States of Confusion: My 19,000-Mile Detour to Find Direction," author Paul Jury put up a video on the Internets that stereotypes every state in the country in less than two minutes.

The video already has more than 1.2 million views on YouTube. 

What was Maryland's stereotype? 

For our fair state, Jury positioned himself on a couch in comfortable-looking living room, holding a glass of red wine. He said, "Have Jeeves bring the lobster boat around." 

In short, our stereotype is: We're rich snobs who like seafood. 

Not so bad at all. I thought for sure it was going to be something related to "The Wire."
