Here is a link to a wikipedia article on hoosiers and the word meaning etc.:laugh: A Hoosier is a person who lives in or is from Indiana. No one really knows where the term originated from. There are some urban legends though. One is that after a bar fight someone looked down on the floor and asked \"Who\'s ear?\". I have also heard it may have been slang when people saw strangers...\"Who\'s there?\" No one knows though. Both sound a little far fetched.
