3. We don’t all eat Spam…
... but a lot of people do. It’s been estimated that the average person in Hawaii eats 16 cans of Spam each year and there are 19 flavors. Spam musubis are everywhere, McDonald’s has Spam on its menu, and there’s even Spam-flavored macadamia nuts.
4. Yep, "pupu" is pronounced like "poopoo"
It means appetizer and it's on most menus. Just try not to giggle when ordering a pupu steak or a pupu platter.
5. We don’t walk around barefoot unless we’re at the beach
Wear shoes in stores and restaurants, seriously. Going barefoot in public is just icky.
6. We don’t all surf
Plenty of people raised in Hawaii have never surfed. Seriously.
7. Hawaii Five-0 isn’t real
And we don’t really watch it. Ever since Scott Caan publicly dissed Hawaiian food, he’s on locals’ shit lists.
