Also omitted: the morbidly obese (50-60% of Mississippi's population).
The Grove is largely not accessible by the handicapped and to sit down anywhere you pretty much have to be able to have your weight supported by those fabric folding chairs on game days. Of course, I graduated 10 years ago and fuck that place.
My great-grandmother was born in New Orleans, lived most of her life in rural Mississippi. Shortly before her death, she was shipped up to the Olympia area to live in a retirement community. One of the most poignant thing she ever said to me was "I really didn't know how awful it was in Mississippi, this is so pleasant."
I was in the room when she passed, and she had some pre-mortem delirium (or whatever, give me a better explanation), and she kept saying she could see Heaven. She described it as looking like New Orleans, "except everything is so clean, and nobody is poor."
I know exactly what she meant by that. She spent most of her life in abject Mississippi poverty.
I was also born in New Orleans. We didn't move here (Mississippi) until I was 12. I also do not want to die here.
If it weren't for Mississippi, I don't know what West Virginia would do. We should change our signs to read "Welcome to West Virginia--Almost Heaven (compared to Mississippi)!"
No offense taken. I've heard 'em all before anyway.
West Virginia should change its name to New Virginia so Virginia becomes Old Virginia by default.

Mississippi: America's sweaty taint.
Ironically, I only know that Ole Miss exists thanks to "The Blind Side".
Me too! Why is that ironic?
Character in the blindside went to a Memphis area private Christian academy (pretty sure it was Briarcrest or Briarcliff or close to that) which did not want to be named in the film.
I've done all those things, and none of them required Mississippi. I honestly thought this video, by the title, would have Tom Cruise in it and be a lot more insulting.
