and if you are a yooper you can call people from the lower peninsula "trolls"

eh?

You Know You're From Nebraska When...


"Vacation" means going to Omaha for the weekend. <Not for me, I live there>

You used your life savings to go to the Nebraska-Colorado game.

You know the Woodmen Tower is not made of wood.

You can tell it's really a farmer working late in his field and not a UFO.

You know the difference between field corn and sweet corn when they are still on the stalk.

You pick up all the free stuff at the State Fair.

You know where the Old Market is.

You walk down the street and strike up a conversation with people you don't know by saying, "Sure has been dry this year."

You know what the "sea of red & white" is.

You know how to pronounce Beatrice, Norfolk <It's pronounced Nor-fork; trust me, they'll murder you if you don't pronounce it right> and Kearney.

You what I.O.W.A. really stands for.

You don't understand why other states even bother trying to raise beef.

You don't have to be told what Aksarben is or that it's Nebraska spelled backward.

You take pride in knowing that on Saturdays, Memorial Stadium is the third largest city in the state.

When the tornado sirens go off you head up to the roof to get a better view.

You know that the statue on the dome of the state capital is actually sowing seed - not bowling.

You fly your American flag at halfmast when the Huskers lose a football game.

You know what a Runza is.

You think it's normal to get a side of spaghetti at a steakhouse.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Nebraska.


A couple new ones:
You know you cannot tube "upstream."

You can eat an ear of corn with no utensils in less than 20 seconds.

You think Highway 6 is more scenic that I-80, which you think is the best thing to come out of Iowa.


You believe that the worst steak in Nebraska is still better than any other steak, anywhere.


You believe that vegetarians should be banned in Nebraska.


Kitty Clover potato chips and Robert's Milk were are the best part of a meal.


You avoid Omaha because you're afraid of getting mugged. <So true>

I totally agree with the NJ one, except:

27) You know that no respectable New Jerseyan goes to Princeton - that's for out-of-staters.

Untrue. Only people who live more than 20 miles from Princeton believe that. I do however have one to replace it:

29) You know that Princeton University has a paintball team.

Actually, most New Jerseyans don't know that...but whatever. Princeton is actually pretty cool, the school is insanely good(and has some good architecture too), and the restaurants there are nice. Hoping to get a job in one of them.

Also, Jersey is a place in England, it's just the no one knows where it is.

And here, the question "Where'd you learn to drive? Iowa?" is commonly asked of people with poor driving skills.

Various sources:

You've never met any celebrities.   Only the Commissioner of Baseball in Milwaukee, anyways.

Your idea of a traffic jam is 10 cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.  That's about right.

"Vacation" means playing miniature golf at the Dells.  Only been to the Dells once.  Makes me pretty rare.

You've seen all the biggest bands 10 years after they were popular.  Yep.

You know what's knee-high by the Fourth of July.  I can think of several...  not sure what they are getting at.

You ask for a "bubbler" when you're thirsty.  Thankful, I have avoided this particular Cheese-head-ism.

A clean bowling shirt is appropriate attire for a wedding.  Ugh no.

You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in it, no matter what time of the year.  Yep.

You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: Where's my coat at?" or "If you go to town, I wanna go with."  Oh, yah.

All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit,  vegetable, grain or animal.  True except for Mwaukee.

You install security lights on your house and garage and then leave both unlocked.  Yep.

You think of the major four food groups as cheese, beer, brats and Jell-O salad with marshmallows.  Forgot the frozen custard (Kopp's) and butterburgers (also Kopp's).

You carry jumper cables in your car.  Check.

You own just three spices: salt, pepper and ketchup.  Not true for me. 

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.  lol - of course!

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow  And more fun, too, with the traction control off.

You know which leaves make good toilet paper.  Thankfully no.

You find -20 degrees F "a little chilly."  Slightly chilly.  Still haven't broken out the warm jacket.

You know all four seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter and Construction.  Yep.

You can taste a difference in cheese made somewhere else   Not me...

You own at least one tie with a or peice of jewelry with a Green Bay Packer theme   Several.

You can find and pronounce : Eau Claire, Oconomowoc, Menomonee Falls, Waukesha, and La Crosse, Fond du Lac.  Easy.

You can correctly spell Milwaukee.   Yep.

At least one of your family members works / worked in a cheese factory.  Nope.

A holstein cow outside of Wisconsin makes you miss home.  Yep.

You can taste the difference between apples grown up north and the ones that you can buy in the south.   Nope.

When talking about the Green Bay Packers you refer to them as "we".   Of course.

When the weather hits 0 degrees you decide that maybe it's time to get out a jacket instead of a sweatshirt.  But only a thin jacket.

The family gets together every week for fish fry at the local pub.  I can't stand fish fry.

You know how to make a very good sled out of normal household items.   All you need is a garbage bag, baby.

You have watched Fargo and not noticed an accent.  I never got that movie.

You drive around with the air conditioning on until it hits 30 degrees, because it just was so darn hot outside.   My climate control setting just reads "low".

The local paper needs 6 pages to cover the Packers... in July!   Almost training camp!

Your best shirt has a big letter G on it.   Maybe not my BEST shirt, but still...

You've said "Of course they'll win. They're God's team."   Well, it's true.

You can make sense out of the words "upnort" and "Trivers".  Never been to Trivers, but I go upnort occassionally.

You consider Madison exotic.   Don't know how anybody couldn't.

You can visit Luxemburg, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Berlin, New London & Poland all in one afternoon.   And I almost have.

You can recognize someone from Illinois from their driving.  That's easy.

You can use the word "ya der hey" easily in a sentence   :D

You hear someone use the words "uff-dah" and you don't immediately break into uncontrollable laughter.   Heck, I say uff-da all the time.

You know how to polka   Doesn't everyone?

You own a cheesehead   Three, actually.

You know what a FIB is and can spot them a mile away.  Very easy.

You have ever seen or played in a "broom ball" game.  Check.

You have ever partied at Summerfest, Festa Italiana, German Fest, Irish Fest, Oktoberfest, or all of the above.   Check, check, check, check, check.

You can't be friends with a Vikings fan   That's for darn sure.

So as not to be outdone by all the redneck, hillbilly, and Texan jokes,
you know you're from California if:


1. Your coworker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.

2. You make over $300,000 and still can't afford a house.

3. You take a bus and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation
in English.

4. Your child's 3rd-grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is
named Flower.

5. You can't remember . . . . is pot illegal?

6. You've been to a baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor.

7. You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown,
    and you can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.

8. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?

9. A really great parking space can totally move you to tears.

10. Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the U.S.

11. Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing a
    baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney really IS
George Clooney.

12. Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.

13. You can't remember . . . .is pot illegal?

14. It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every
    news station: "STORM WATCH."

15. You pass an elementary school playground and the children are
    all busy with their cells or pagers.

16. It's barely sprinkling rain outside, so you leave for work an hour
    early to avoid all the weather-related accidents.

17. HEY!!!! Is pot illegal????

18. Both you AND your dog have therapists.

19. The Terminator is your governor.

20. If you drive illegally, they take your driver's license.
    If you're here illegally, they want to give you one.

You Know You're From Cincinnati When.......

Your idea of a three-way is chilli over spaghetti topped with cheddar

You know what goetta is - and you've eaten it


You hate Cleveland, but you don't know why, and you've never been there

You think Pete Rose and Marge Schott were railroaded

You say "Please?" instead of "Excuse me?"

You think Northern Kentucky is part of Ohio

You've been to California, Wyoming, Coney Island, and Over-the-Rhine in one day

There are less than 100 murders a year, and you still think you're in Detroit

You think Dayton is a Third World country

What groundhog? It's the St. Patrick's Day parade leprechaun that forecasts how much longer winter will last.

Losing football teams draw more fans than winning baseball teams.

Indiana is about 20 miles away, but it takes about four hours to get there.

It's too cold in the winter, and too hot and humid in the summer, to ever stay outside for very long.

You drive to Columbus or Louisville to avoid the prices at the Cincinnati airport.

City council members hold debates on whether or not they should debate in the first place.

Tourists still flock downtown to catch a glimpse of cast members from "WKRP," even though the show hasn't aired on network television since 1984, and the show was filmed in LA anyway.

You ask lifetime residents where the President Taft house is, but they don't know either.

If you do something -- anything -- in public long enough, sooner or later it will be banned.

Your low-fat diet is never low enough to exclude Graeter's ice cream.

You get through winter listening to Marty and Joe's broadcasts from the grapefruit leagues.

Big Red Smokies are a ballpark treat, not cause to dial 9-1-1.

If necessary, the city could easily be sliced into two new cities: East and West, and it would take 20 years for anyone to notice something happened.

Chocolate and cinnamon, not peppers and beans, are in your chili.

You can drive 30 minutes in any direction to hear a different accent than your own.

You can accurately judge people's social status by which Kroger's store they frequent.

You can go to any church festival in any neighborhood on any weekend and see at least five people you either work with, went to school with, or dated.

Even the slightest mention of former baseball commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti makes your blood boil and your ears steam.

If the temperature hits 45 degrees, and the sun comes out in any month between November and April, people walk around downtown wearing shades and no jackets.

The top stories on the local 6 o'clock evening news look suspiciously like the articles you read in the newspaper that very morning -- and even use the same quotes.

Any carbonated beverage is a "coke."

Your favorite convenient store sounds like a labor union.

You can't hear the words "Mike Brown" without getting angry.

You honestly believe that Pete Rose should be in the Baseball Hall Fame.

You have more stadiums, coliseums, and arenas than you know what to do with.

It doesn't seem weird to you that everyone has an Uncle Al.

Your favorite Coney Island isn't in New York.

You like Nick Clooney better than George Clooney.

You know how Jerry Springer got his start.

You know what a pony keg is.

You have friends and neighbors with names like Machenheimer, Guckenberger, Schlottman, Schoenling, and Schweitering.

You know that cars (like eggs) are cheaper in the country.

An all-boys or all-girls school doesn't seem that odd to you

You think a mixed marriage is when an East Sider marries a West Sider.

You know the difference between Hudy and "Who Dey."

You know what cream ale is, and you think that cream soda should be bright red.

You think Kentucky is only slightly more civilized than Afghanistan.

You know in which state the Greater Cincinnati Airport is located.

You actually understand the word, "CRAVE" and white castle burgers.

You can almost name the seven "hills" minus one or two.

When people ask where you live, you tell them the Parish
