Iowa Has Very Disgusting People

If you have kids, I totally understand always having a messy house. As a dad myself, cleaning never ends and it will never end. But we all know people without kids that have a very messy house and they're from Iowa.

This isn't much of a surprise to the people at Glass Doctor who recently revealed the results of their study showing the most and least hygienic states.


Iowa ranked as the 8th-least hygienic state in the U.S. States with even more disgusting people than Iowa include Oklahoma (7th), Delaware (6th), North Carolina (5th), Maryland (4th), Ohio (3rd), Rhode Island (2nd), and Nebraska (1st).

If you live in the Hawkeye State, it should make you happy knowing that Nebraskans are filthy, filthy people.
