Rules Of The South...Y'all - Page 2

post #31 of 35
You know that you're from Arizona if:

Your new car comes with oven mitts (steering wheels get HOT and don't EVEN think of opening the hood without protection.)

You can properly pronounce AJO (AH-ho), BOWIE (BOO-ee), CHOLLA (CHOY-ya) and PRESCOTT (press-KIT).

Arizona has more species of rattlesnake, than any other state - watch where you step, don't turn over rocks and don't put your hands anyplace, that you can't see.

Almost EVERYTHING, that grows naturally has thorns - that teddy bear cholla cactus just LOOKS cuddly.

Is very similar to Alabama!

- It doesn't seem odd to see the term "chicken fried chicken" on a menu.

- You have used the phrase "fixin' to" during the last 12 months.

- Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.

- You save all your life for your dream vacation, and use it to go to the OU/Texas game. This would be the Alabama/Auburn game here

- A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.

- It doesn't seem peculiar if your spouse says "I'm going in to town for something" even though you live in town.

- You can properly pronounce Eufaula, Gotebo, and Okemah. Well, Eufaula anyways...

- When someone refers to the current season, you have no idea if they mean spring, summer, fall, winter or football. (Add "deer" and "turkey")

I'd like to add

You know what Gary IN smells like.

And a few Ohio ones, just what I remember from all those lists that float around:

You know what's knee-high-by-the-fourth-of-july
You know how to say Tuscarawas, Wapakoneta, Olentangy... and in Ohio Russia is roo-she, Lima is Lie-muh, Santa Fe is Santa Feee
You measure distance in minutes
If someone told you they were going up the pike a ways... you would know where they were going

Without further ado....

Welcome to Chicago!

Next, if your road map is more than a few weeks old, throw it out and buy a new one.
If you are in Naperville and your map is one day old, then it is already obsolete.
While on a bus tour with a group, our leader got us lost south of town. Turns out the map was printed before the Fermi Lab - where they were trying to get us through! Dad took over and brought out the map we had.

We all drive like that.
I know. We see you guys when you drive through Evansville on your way south.

I know that one from personal experience. You speed up or get run over.

And Huachuca? (Gesundheit! )

You know you're from Philadelphia when:

1. You think cheesesteaks are gourmet food.

2. Ditto for those "soft" pretzels, with mustard, that the street vendor with the dirty hands (with which he just took a whizz and wiped his nose) dispenses to you by the Rocky statue (which has been moved, though!) outside the Philly Art Museum.

3. You no longer notice the homeless people sleeping on the vents at the corner of 4th and Market Streets (I know this isn't funny--sorry, but Philly folks just step over them--it's awful).

4. Your facial skin is permanently dyed green and silver from face painting at football games.

5. The only matching clothing ensemble you own is in green, and consists of: an Eagles sweatshirt, matching sweatpants, jacket, and a plastic Eagles eagle head, complete with beak.

6. You have frequent customer miles at every body piercing/tattooing shop on South Street. ("For every 10 piercings or tattoos, get one FREE!!!")

7. You say, "Shreet and shnow" for "Street and "snow".

8. You're a guy, yet you'd happily dress up in white pantyhose to be in the Mummer's Parade, and nobody thinks you're odd.

9. You pronounce the local football team's name as "Da Eggles".

10. You know they really don't call New Jersey "Joysey".

Sorry, it's all I can come up with now! Going back to bed.
