Even for Americans, listing all 50 states can be a challenge. A British Twitter user decided to try, naming each state and humorously noting what he believes they're famous for. The goal wasn't accuracy but to entertain, drawing from memories and associations from pop culture, conversations, and news. Using only his memory, the user, known as @human_not_bees, listed the states in alphabetical order, resulting in a hilarious thread.














The Twitter thread has been shared over 15,000 times and liked 83,000 times. Many tweets in the thread are downright hilarious. While some criticized the generalizations, the user noted they were missing the humor. The thread offers insights into what humor resonates with British and American audiences—and what doesn't.

























Surprisingly, the thread gained traction despite not being timed for the American audience. “I wrote this tweet in the morning in the UK thinking it would pass under the US radar as you would mostly all be asleep, and it would just make people in Europe chuckle and a few of my US followers when they saw it later. When it took off, it was surprising,” he said, per Bored Panda. He added that Twitter was unpredictable and that “you never know what’s going to be popular.”







































The author said he was playing D&D when his notifications started exploding. A lot of people attempted to correct him on his information regarding various states. “I think maybe they missed the point. My favorite correction was a person who was clearly stoned trying to explain to me that Colorado didn’t invent weed,” said Beës.
































He also compared the difference between what British people and Americans considered a joke. “British humor is more self-deprecating. I think we have a higher tolerance for both mocking others and being mocked. Just compare the US and UK versions of The Office. Saying that, The Office US is my favorite of the two,” said the author.
