At dinner the other night with my Bulgarian coworkers, I told them that I was born and raised in Iowa. One of them asked me what we called the peasants of Iowa. I didn't understand.
"The peasants of the South are called rednecks and the peasants of the East are called hillbillies. What do you call the peasants of Iowa?"
I laughed. I wonder, would you call the peasants of Iowa hicks?
