If you've lived in Idaho, visited Idaho, know someone from Idaho, or have even once said the word "Idaho," you've heard the joke:

Idaho? More like...YOU da h** hahahahahahaha!

It's awful. It's the easiest, most braindead bottom-of-the-barrel punchline in existence. If this "joke" was a flavor, it'd be black licorice. And you know nobody likes that stuff.

You've heard the joke 100,000 times, but what can you do about it? Since you can't (legally) physically prevent someone from saying it, what other options are there?

We pooled together a team of experts (let's go with that), and after hundreds of man-hours and calculations, a proper response to the terrible Idaho joke has been discovered.

Be warned, this is a very severe response, but it's the only one scientifically (probably) proven to give you the upper hand in this annoying exchange. Ready? Here we go.

When someone utters the Idaho joke to you, there's only one way to let them know the terrible thing they've done. There's a few steps, so pay attention.

  • First, don't give a verbal response. Look them dead in the eye like you would look at a child who got caught stealing, turn, and walk away
  • Next, delete said person from your phone and all social media. Take their address out of your Rolodex while you're at it. They're definitely not getting a Christmas card
  • Finally, reward yourself with some chocolate or a tasty cocktail. You've been through trauma and you deserve it

While this may seem stern, it truly is the only way.

It's a terrible joke, and you shouldn't associate yourself with someone who stoops so low. Also, they called you a h**. Don't put up with that.

This Viral Idaho Moment Has The Internet Cringing

Sometimes, we just come across those things that are so "Idaho" it would only make sense to an Idahoan. Today is one of those days, and this is one of those things.
A TikTok that has gone viral features an event that is "so Idaho" we don't even know where to start.
The event is referred ton online as the "Cooler Ride" or the "Cooler Slide" and apparently, takes place (unofficially) during the Riggins Rodeo. Many online commenters said that they're familiar with the event and that yes-- it really is "a Riggins thing".

Take a look at this for yourself and enjoy the very Idaho TikTok, as well.
