Borat Mankinis vs Blow-Up Dolls: What Your Neighbors Are Buying Online
Get Your Credit Card Ready
May 8th, 2017 – Jokes are built from many things. Sometimes they’re based in reality. Other times they’re formed from imagination. And often times they’re created based on stereotypes.
The folks over at Estately have given us some stereotypical and some non-cliché answers for what people from each state shopped for online with more frequency than all other states during the past 12 months.
Would you have guessed that Californians would search more often for Baywatch swimsuits, Bob Marley posters, avocado slicers and Armani jeans? What about Hawaii searching for GoPro Hero, spear guns and aloha shirts? Texas stocking up on Daisy Duke shorts and concealed carry corsets? OK, maybe. And Florida seems to be holding strong to stereotypes.
But does a stereotype happen because it’s true or is it just an oversimplified go-to point? It’s been said that if you want to find the truth you should follow the money. This time, the money came from Google Trends to measure internet searches using the Google Shopping feature. As the number crunchers said:
“The results were both terrifying and informative. For instance, Washington state is simultaneously preparing for both a natural disaster and a giant shellfish feed, Wyoming is stockpiling an arsenal, and Ohio and Pennsylvania are preparing for some sort of tragic fashion showdown.”
Take a look at the breakdown and remember that soon your web browsing history may be less private than you once thought.

This is BS. I live in Ohio and all you see is people ordering firearms, accessories, and ammo constantly.
Yup a lot of confederate flag stuff in wv quite accurate unfortunately
Potty Putter / Samurai Umbrella / velour tracksuit….
Wow, Indiana. Really? Why do I live here?
I am from Hawai’i & I think this must be a joke cuz nobody buys spam online. wth
I’m seriously concerned as to why Mississippi just says coffins…
Click on the pic there’s more
Who the fuck cares
Please tell me exploding kittens isn’t literal.
ALABAMA: adult diapers / Curry 2 Low / Paula Deen Air Fryer / CPAP mask / roller skates
Sounds like the people you see at Wal-Mart at 3 a.m.
Nebraska and Kansas got it going on
My family always hits the ammo store whenever they see one
Thats a lie. We all know damn well Texans buy guns and whiskey and not gay ass kayaks.
Texas doesn’t seem like a great place to own a kayak anyway. It’s mostly desert
you can’t buy guns and whiskey online. you have to go to your corner liquor store for a free gun with purchase.
Desert? You must be talking about west Texas. Most of Texas is actually flat and grassy.
Night Vision Goggles
I do have several gun racks
Dead on for Wyoming, bulk ammo can’t be beat.
David Covalt what the heck is a jort???
Denim Shorts. Jeans + Shorts = Jorts.
I knew you would know☺
Mustache wax? Really? What a fucking joke this is.
Why the fuck would you want a motorized kayak
My neighbors and their exploding cats, I don’t judge them
This is hillarious.
