You've probably heard the phrase, "There's no such thing as a stupid question."

That's debatable.

Sometimes, Mainers will get a lot of dumb questions from people from away and it feels like rolling your eyes, facepalming or staring blankly would be the best response. You've probably gotten one before.

Sure, maybe some people are genuinely sincere and don't know the history, customs, or commonplace things of the Pine Tree State. It happens. You could probably ask someone from Maine about something that's so obvious in California, and that Mainer might have zero clue.

And then there's just so ridiculously dumb of a question that it makes you wonder if it's a joke. It just can't be real.

Like, "Do Mainers eat lobster all the time?"

Maine has amazing lobster, yes, but it doesn't mean it's served for every meal every day. It's just another food you can eat.

And yet, people have asked that question.

Or what about "When does a deer become a moose?" Seriously? Ugh. Why. Is this real life?

We've compiled a few of the dumbest questions that Mainers get asked by people who aren't from the state. Take a look and see if you've been asked any of them.
