18 Things Only Real Kentuckians Will Recognize

How many do YOU know?
by Kentucky For Kentucky |

Kentucky is chock-full of oddities you just won’t find anywhere else. Ask some West Coast hippie for a hot bowl of goo goo stew and chances are they won’t have any idea what you’re talking about. But that’s OK. We wouldn’t have it any other way. Test your Kentucky IQ by seeing how many of these under-the-radar people, places, and things you’re familiar with. Who knows? You might even learn something new.


How’d you do? If you recognized 16 or more, CONGRATULATIONS! You’re a real Kentucky Colonel! 15 or less? Sorry, bub. You ain’t from around here.
