We Missourians get stuck with a lot of stereotypes -- meth heads, hillbillies, storm watchers. It's about time we fought back with a few broad brush strokes of our own.

Hanna Katee Williamson's map of the U.S. according to a St. Louisan went viral on Facebook last week, earning more than 2,700 shares from St. Louis Memes.

On the map, St. Louis is marked as civilization, Kansas City is the Lou's ugly stepsister, and everything south of I-70 is just labeled "METH."

Williamson's map reminded us of this two-year-old video of state stereotypes. Missouri is No. 1! ...in meth.
