Characterizing a native of the midwestern United States that is too smart, inquisitive, and progressive to actually live in the midwest. Known for wanderlust and marked by an off-beat sense of humor that is often misinterpreted. Prone to speak without thinking. Often used to describe men found in awkward social situations that are resolved through a) humor, b) apologies, c) running like hell, or occasionally d) road rage. Prone to single word answers to questions (e.g., "Sure") that are ultimately (and correctly) perceived as ambivalence.
