(WMBF) - An article ranking U.S. states found South Carolina in the 39th spot. What is even more controversial is the comment preceding the ranking.

“Umm...pass?” reads the reasoning for ranking.

The Yahoo Travel article authored by Kevin Alexander and Matt Lynch found North Carolina in the 22nd spot, citing these reasons:

The land of tobacco, basketball, and Petey Pablo rap tracks has many things going for it: two types of barbecue (with varying amounts of vinegar); the weirdly fascinating bikini string of beachfront known as the Outer Banks; the clothes-ruining delight that is Cheerwine; and the fact that most of the Duke kids go back North after four years.

The top three ranked states include Michigan, Maine and Kentucky, according to the travel report.
