Ach! A new Gallup Poll says Kentucky is the most stressed state in the nation. Pollsters compared the stress levels of respondents from 2008 to their levels at mid-summer of this year, and found that out of 2,713 respondents, nearly 45 percent of them admitted to being one step away from taking their granddaddy’s rifle and “going out back.”
What could be the cause? Could it be that a diet consisting primarily of cigarettes, KFC and Jerry Springer wear the nerves (and the collective lifespan) a little thin? No!
By the way, West Virginia came in at No.2 with 43.7 percent, and Colorado finished to show with 43.4. The least-stressed states were Hawaii (duh), North Dakota, and goddamned Iowa.
