The only reason they say it's Michigander and not Michiganian is that the Detroit Free Press did a survey asking people what they called themselves, and slightly more people said Michigander. Most people I know call themselves Michiganians.

Michigander kinda makes more sense, though. When you say "Michiganian", you don't get that Michigan sounding "A" in there, but, you do when saying "Michigander".

What's good for the Michigander is good for the Michigoose.

I did the opposite of horrid. Well I'm from Michigan so I shouldn't brag. But I will.

I've lived in Michigan for 30 years and I've never heard either term used. Is a person from the lower peninsula a Troll because we live south of the bridge?? At least that makes a bit of sense. But Billy Goat?

I've lived in Michigan most of my life and never heard the term Michiganian. So I guess dragoncat and I hang out with different people:)

I think you probably mean a hockey areNa, not a hockey area, yes?

Apparently there were 1,000,001 ways I should've tried "Yooper" / Yoopie.

I'd replace that question about "the lake Michigan doesn't border" with something about the Flint Water Crisis.

Everyone makes a big deal about the Flint Water Crisis. Of course it wasn't good, I'm not implying that at all, but a Reuters found through test that about 4000 cities have around double the amount of children lead poisoning from drinking water. Among these include parts of Rutland, Savannah and Brooklyn. You just never hear about these cases.

Can you give more spellings for 'Yooper.' I knew the word having been there a few years ago but had trouble figuring out how to spell it. I honestly thought it was just 'Uper' or 'Youper'

Maybe a stupid question, but isn't Coney Island in New York?

It is. Strangely, in parts of New York, you'll see chili dogs referred to as a Michigan sandwich. Does it make any sense? No, it does not.

Which parts of New York? I'm from there and I've never heard that term, but admittedly I have not been to every part of the state.

My mom lived in Michigan, I have cousins all over the state, my husband was born there, and yet I never heard of a Petoskey stone. (BTW, my mom loved Vernor's Ginger Ale, but insisted that they changed the formula from the one she remembered when she was young.)

Isn't Faygo a very popular Michigan ginger ale?
