Have you ever met anyone from North Dakota?
Ever visited the place?
If you answered yes to either question, you are either lying or delusional. North Dakota isn’t real.
For 121 years now, weirdies have been perpetuating the myth that North Dakota exists. While the origins of this urban legend are unknown, it’s fun to speculate on.
Perhaps President Benjamin Harrison wanted to see if he could pull a fast one on the American public. Or maybe South Dakotans were ashamed of the fact that they border Canada.
No matter how this lie was spread, it’s undeniably one of the greatest hoaxes of all time.
To this day, the majority of Americans continue to fall for the “39th state.” In a recent AP poll, 99.3% of adults surveyed indicated that they believe North Dakota is real.
I hope to change that. I yearn to open the eyes of a people deceived for far too long.
I ask you, my glorious readership, to help me in my quest to spread the truth.
I’ll be honest with you, if you join me, the road ahead will be difficult. Naysayers will look at you like you’re mentally unstable (Oh, the irony).
They will spit out faulty arguments, like:
“I’ve seen the film Fargo. It clearly takes place in North Dakota. The state just has to exist.”
I wonder if these same people would be willing to argue that Gotham City, Narnia, and Middle Earth are real?
We must be patient though, for it takes time to wash away ignorance.
If everyone of you can convince even just one misinformed soul of the truth, we shall triumph.
After all, The 49 states that make up the union deserve better than the lie that is “North Dakota.”
Shout it from the rooftops people,
North Dakota is a lie!
