A famous person from Maine is the writer Stephen King. His many non-fiction books give us a good picture of Maine–telekinetic, unbalanced prom queens, little kids who talk to their finger and say “red rum” a lot, rabid St. Bernards, killer supernatural cars, dudes with axes saying “Here’s Johnny,” zombie pets, crazed book fans and more. Why Maine is a distant 50th in the nation in tourism remains a mystery.
Another famous thing about Maine is lobster. These giant, mutant insects from the sea are apparently good eating, assuming they don’t eat you first. Good luck!
