"No West Virginia jokes, please!" West Virginia Local Custom Tip by MrPoop

West Virginia Local Customs: 11 reviews and 9 photos

There is nothing less funny to a native West Virginian than jokes about West Virginia! You will find that some natives will suffer a major sense of humor failure and will be deeply offended -- although they will probably have the good grace not to let on.

So, please, no jokes about inbreeding, toothlessness, shoelessness, pick up trucks, major appliances left in front yard/on front porch...and so on!

There probably isn't one person born in West Virginia who hasn't heard at least one West Virginia joke. They don't get any funnier --no matter how many times you have to hear them or who's doing the telling!

To make matters worse, most of time the jokes are told by people who have never even been to West Virginia!
