Check out Buzzfeed's quiz on Minnesota sayings (spoiler: It's easy)

Pah, is this it? Is this all you could conjure, Buzzfeed?

The weird and wonderful way of Minnesota can seem foreign to those living outside of it.

That's probably why Buzzfeed has challenged its American readers to see how well they know the lingo of the Land of 10,000 Lakes in a recent quiz.

It's called "Only Minnesotans Will Ace This Quiz" and asks readers if they know what it means when a Minnesotan says "interesting," "bars," "pop" and "uff da."

The only one we think has a chance of tripping you up is the "Kum and Go" question, given that's mainly an Iowa thing with only a small presence in Minnesota.

Anyway, give it a try right here.
