Fifteen jokes about Marylanders we think are actually funny

By: David M. Higgins II

For those of us that have lived in Maryland for our entire life or even a significant portion, we know Maryland has an extensive and rich history. and the landscape is just as rich and extensive. From sandy beaches to busy ports, rocky mountains and cliffs, and pristine forests. We have it all. We also have been the butt of many jokes for our peculiar ways, and we actually find a handful funny. If you can think of any we missed, add them to the Facebook post!

  1. Yes, we love our Old Bay(Bae)

2) There is NO OTHER Ocean City!!!

3) Speaking of Ocean City, it’s a right of passage for all graduating seniors!

4) Yes, we love Lacrosse and Crabs!

5) We have a whole Bay full of them and growing up it was on everyone’s mind in the summer!

6) Speaking of crabs… if you’ve never tried to pick up a live one for fun… you’re not from here!

7)Often imitated( Maryland-Style), but never duplicated!

8) It’s better to stay home when it rains…

9) But when they say it might snow…

10) And while you’re at it, check out the highways in between rain and snow… it gets no better.

11) But one thing about Maryland’s landscape is the weather changes just like it…

12) Don’t believe us? We have these days 80% of the year…

13) We even have a dark side…

14) We live in a border state, but some feel they are genuine cowboys…

15) And RenFest… where we eat huge turkey legs and watch our State Sport of Jousting!

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
