I thought it would be fun to post one of the "You know you're from ______ if..." for each state in here! I lived a majority of my life in the US (many different states) so I'll post the ones for the states I've lived in! Maryland: [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] You know more than 10 people who own boats and they all park them at the same marina in Annapolis. You can pronounce and spell "Pocomoke," "Mattaponi," "Accokeek," and "Havre de Grace" You prononce "Bowie" BOO-ie not BOW-ie or BAUW-ie 1 hour is an easy commute to work You have more than three recipies for crabcakes French fries just don't taste right without Old Bay Mmmmm, Old Bay! There are more than two crab places in your town Even your high school cafeteria made good crabcakes You got your first lacrosse stick before you were six years old You call all turtles "terrapins" You refer to your state as "Merlind" Your mother shops at Hecht's. No more Hecht's You still call Six Flags America "Adventure World", or even "Wild World" Wild World!!! You still remember the Wild World commercial (Wild World's the cure for the summertime blues!) You can tell the difference between the smells of septic and marsh. You not only know how to eat hard crabs but you also know how to catch them, cook them and tell the males from the females. You don't think that Assawoman Bay is a strange name for a body of water. You know perfectly well why Rehoboth is called "Little San Francisco" M R Ducks makes perfect sense. So does C M Wangs. You think Salisbury is a big city. You think of dumplings as wet slippery squares of boiled dough. You and your boss take off of work when the fish are running or the ducks are flying in.. You've eaten muskrat at a church dinner but think it's better the way you fix it. You think of "Dairy Queen" as a pageant title and not a place to get an ice cream. "Formal wear" is a ball cap, a flannel shirt and Timberlands. You still root for the Orioles even when they suck You'll never understand why tourists come to DC. Or Annapolis! LOL When in Florida, you can only laugh when you see signs saying "Real Maryland Blue Crab Cakes!" You color with "Crowns", take a "Share" with "Wooter" and think the president lives in "Warshenton." That's just those Eastern Shore folk You know the difference between Glen Burnie ghetto and Catonsville ghetto. Ugh, Catonsville Your whole family lives within a 200 mile radius of your town. Pretty much! Dale Earnhardt's accident was a close personal loss to your father At least one man in your family is a waterman You plan for "The Festival" a year in advance. Yeahh!!! During the summer, you spend more time in Ocean City than at home. Margret Heater, Hedspace, Jepetto, Outside Joke and Mary Prankster are people you think are "Famous" Your radio dial is stuck on 99.1 Not anymore You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Maryland.[/FONT] Mississippi: [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] You've been to or know about the towns of: Hot Coffee, Whynot, Soso, Shuqualak, Okalona, and Noxapater. When someone talks about The Flag, you know exactly what flag they're refering to. In any given parking lot, every third car has a Flag bumpersticker. Especially the HS parking lot! Your neighbor (or yourself) has the Confederate battle flag in his yard and nothing else. Our neighbor did You eat coon hash. You know where chittlins come from. You know it's coke, not "pop", or "soda." ABSOLUTELY! You know pop is a noise or an action (ie the coon popped out of his hole), not a soft drink. You can tell, purely by accent, whether a person is from the Black Belt, the Red Clay Hills, the Piney Woods, or the Delta. You know that the Delta is not the one below New Orleans. lol Your church's attendance is reduced by half on opening day of bow season. The preacher is not there on opening day of gun season. The last time it snowed, you took fifteen photos and put some in your freezer for old time's sake. haha, New Years 1999/2000! A seven course meal is a bucket of KFC and a six-pack. Mmmm There is a trampoline in your neighbor's back yard. Yes Teenagers refer to the bus as the "cheese wagon," and refuse to ride it. lmao. I made my mom take me to school - I refused to ride that bus! You only know five spices--salt, pepper, Ranch dressing, BBQ Sauce and hot sauce. You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Mississippi.[/FONT] ------------------------------ What are the ones for where you're from?
