Growing up, I always heard one big thing that people thought about Kentuckians that really isn't true...that we all run around barefoot all the time.
As a kid, that's very confusing since winter is, you know, a REALITY and that wouldn't make any sense. See, you should never underestimate kids; when something doesn't make sense, they'll know and they'll let YOU know.
WHAT WOULD SHOCK THOSE NOT FROM KENTUCKY ABOUT KENTUCKY
I have created a crowd-sourced list of things that might just shock people who are not from Kentucky, which has long been attached to far too many outlandish stereotypes. And yes, the barefoot thing comes up. In fact, it was probably the number one comment, but I only mentioned it once.
I would also like to tip my hat to those who came up with ideas I'd never before considered. Enjoy.
