I have never had any Earthly idea what that is. I mean, I even know what a Billiken is, and a Hilltopper, of course. Never knew what a Hoosier was though.
:-) I read where they were first called Hoosier's but I still don't know what a Hoosier is. I know what a sooner is, I know what a buckeye is I know what a Wildcat and a Cardinal but a Hoosier I have no known earthly idea what it is. Good input on your part. I like #2.
This is bad but maybe someone meant to call them losers and mispronounced it as hoosiers.
Good! There really is no such thing as a Hoosier, It doesn't exist, a name made up that really has no meaning. A Hoosier just does not exist.
In a related story:
The State of Kentucky released a statement last week annoucing they they were going to open the largest known Zoo in the world. The Govenor has reported Kentucky was putting a fence around Indiana. This will be attempted so the surrounding states can futher study this Hoosier species.
