Reddit users summarize each state in one word; sorry Ohio, but respondents say you're boring

Georgia equals peaches, Iowa corn, Kentucky chicken, Minnesota cold, Montana mountains and for some reason the first thing many people think of when they hear Indiana is the character Indiana Jones. These are just some of the top answers a couple hundred Reddit users gave when asked in an informal survey to summarize each state in a single word, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. (Associated press photo by Rick Bowmer: Oregon makes people think of hippies and hispters, according to the Reddit survey)

Many of the top answers involved food (Maine lobster, Nebraska corn), but some invoked industry (oil for North Dakota) and natural disasters (tornado was the top answer for Oklahoma), while New Mexico made people think of meth in relation to the show "Breaking Bad," and users didn't have high opinions of Ohio, calling it boring.
