Maine’s the 10th happiest state? What’s up with that?
Connecticut (#2), Massachusetts (#8), and Rhode Island (#10) make the unhappy top ten, upholding the image of the crusty Yankee. (Once I achieved my goal of being described as “sophomoric,” I moved on to “crusty.” Just like the sound of it.)
Where does Maine get off being the happiest New England state? What are they doing up there, singing sea shanties while they rip open two-pound lobsters?
My boss is a Mainer. And come to think of it, he often has a cheshire cat look about him that suggests he has achieved some kind of inner happiness or peace that we Southern New Englanders will never know. (Maybe we can beat it out of him.)
Vermont (#18) and New Hampshire (#27) are in the middle of the pack. So they must have some good days with their bad days, while we are apparently perpetually pissed off.
I say let’s band together, head up north, and kick some Maine ass. Why should they be happy? Huh?
