If they elect Ron Paul, my first guess that they will be called "awesome"

But, in the meantime, Mainers? Maininites? Maineys?

Whatever you are, good luck and caucus your arses off!

:D

If you're from here, then you're a Mainah. ;) Mainiac is sort of a new term, I still don't see that in use often. Mainer is the default term.

When I lived in Utah I always found it irritating because you are a Utahin, or Utahun. Try saying it, it's no fun.

Mainah is the term most use, which plays on our lack of an accent, as compared to the wicked funny ways people talk in the other 49 states.

Mainiac is not as much in favor today as it was in days of yore. Even more archaic is the correct spelling Maineiyak, which is a play on the native's natural truculence

We just say Mainer up North. The Northern part of Maine is like a whole different state, than the Southern Part.

I tried to figure this out once, and just settled with Bay Stater.

I thought they were Utes, like the Indian tribe the state is named after?

Wouldn't they be Massachusians.

What about New Mexico, are they New Mexicans. :D

Mainah. :D

And you're not one of them unless you have 5 generations to prove it.

I once heard a Maine philosopher comment on birthright citizenship:

"Your a Mainah? Just because a cat has kittens in the oven, you don't call them biscuits"

Well, I live in MA and we call them Mainers (Mainahs if you have a Boston Accent).

But other than that we're all New Englanders.

I couldn't help but think of Joe Pesci in "My Cousin Vinny" when I read that.

Judge: Did you say 'yutes'?
Vinny: Yeah.
Judge: What's a 'yute'?
Vinny: (rolling eyes) Excuse me, the 2 'yooouuththths'. :D

I love the kittens in the oven joke; I've heard it before. I was born in New York but moved to NH when I was 1. Lived in NH until 2003, when we moved to Maine. A friend of mine in High School, who is from Maine, said to me upon learning that I was born in NY, and with a straight face "Oh. I thought you were from heah.(New England)"

My obit in any Maine paper will say "Woman from NY dies."
