You'd be hard-pressed to find a person living in the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes who hasn't used this slang.

According to a recent study published by Best Life Online, Minnesotans say one term, in particular, that even outsiders associate with the state.

Best Life looked at each of the 50 U.S. states and listed the most-used slang words for them all. For some, like South Dakota, it's a rather obscure word like "cattywampus". However, Minnesota's most used slang term is something people all over the country think of when they attempt to stereotype the state.
