Some facts and statistics about Delaware

Since we've all been at each others' throats about the GOP primary there, I thought it would be interesting to learn a little about the state and the people who live there, so:

Um...

Well, there's...

I guess there was that one guy from Delaware, who's famous for...

The most popular vacation destination in Delaware is, uhhh...

Where Pennsylvania gave us the Philly cheesesteak and Illinois has Chicago deep-dish pizza, Delaware's culinary heritage is notable for...

The biggest professional sports team there is...

Yeah.

Honestly, what does anyone even know about Delaware? I mean, nobody in my family has ever been there. I can't recall any of my friends or even casual acquaintances mentioning that they had ever set foot in the state. I don't know that I've ever seen images of the place on TV or in any form of print media (I would challenge you to identify the skyline or layout of any Delaware city or town, but it would likely be a fruitless endeavor). And I can honestly say that I've never met anybody who had actually ever lived there.

Hell, on the 2008 campaign trail, Joe Biden—who supposedly represented Delaware in the United States Senate for years and years—couldn't stop talking about how he was actually from Scranton, which is in another state entirely.

My conclusion? The most interesting thing about Delaware is that it does not really exist.
