Minnesotans have weird accents and are nice, America says

Minnesotans have weird accents and are nice, America says

With the help of SurveyMonkey Audience, Business Insider surveyed 1,603 Americans about which states are the hottest, have the best scenery, the tastiest food, and so forth.

Minnesota doesn't come out at the top in any of the categories. But we do rank highly in two areas -- weird accents and, of course, niceness.

As far as accents go, America (or at least the Americans polled by SurveyMonkey) think Minnesotans have the fourth weirdest one, with Massachusetts taking top honors (the darkest states received the most votes):

And when it comes to niceness, we somehow came in second behind Georgia:

But maybe these survey results should be taken with a grain of salt. After all, Wisconsin wasn't even acknowledged as one of the five drunkest states. (Top honors in that regard went to Louisiana.) That by itself pretty much invalidates the whole thing as far as we're concerned.
