    A Funny for all you Michiganian Disney Lovers!!

    Here's a funny one for my comrades from Michigan......
    Jeff Foxworthy's Version of Michigan
    If you consider it a sport to gather your food by
    drilling through 18 inches of ice and sitting there all
    day hoping that the food will swim by, you might live
    in Michigan

    If you're proud that your region makes the national
    news 96 nights each year because Pelston is the coldest
    spot in the nation, you might live in Michigan
    If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November
    through March, you might live in Michigan

    If someone in a store offers you assistance, and
    they don't work there, you might live in Michigan

    If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around
    the middle of his forehead, you might live in Michigan

    If you have worn shorts and a coat at the same time,
    you might live in Michigan

    If your town has an equal number of bars and
    churches, you might live in Michigan

    If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation
    with someone who dialed a wrong number, you might
    live in Michigan

    over a snowsuit.

    10. Driving is better in the winter because the
    potholes are filled with snow.

    11. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter,
    still winter and road construction.

    12. You can identify a southern or eastern accent.

    13. Your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of
    a deer next to your blue spruce.

    14. You were unaware that there is a legal drinking
    age.

    15. Down South to you means Ohio
    16. A brat is something you eat.
    17. Your neighbor throws a party to celebrate his
    new pole shed.

    18. You go out to fish fry every Friday.

    frost.

    20. You have more miles on your snow blower than
    your car.

    21. You find 0 degrees "a little chilly."

    22. You drink pop and bake with soda.

    23. Your doctor tells you to drink Vernors and you
    know it's not medicine.

    24. You know what a Yooper is.

    25. You think owning a Honda is Un American.

    26. You know that UP is a place not a direction

    27. You know it's possible to live in a thumb.

    28. You understand that when visiting Detroit, the
    best thing to wear is a Kevlar vest.
    29. If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five
    months out of the year, you might live in Michigan.

    forward them to all your Michigan friends.

    Off the top of my head, some of the signs that you are from N'awlins:

    -When it rains outside, you use your umbrella to cover your drink and not your head

    -You can say "**** the heads" and "bite the tails" and no one will get scared

    -Your middle name is your mother's maiden name, or your grandmother's maiden name, or you toher grandmother's maiden name, or your great-grandmother's maiden name.

    -(Special Disney Edition!!!): When you see The Main Street Electrical Parade at Disney World, you get dissapointed when you don't catch anything.

    -You knock down little old ladies in your trying to catch Mardi Gras Beads

    -You don't get any homework for about 2 weekes in February/March (woo-hoo!!!)

    -When they talk about fighting in the West Bank, you think "Good thing there was fighting, the only good thing there was English Turn!"

    -Every soft drink, including Pepsi, is referred to as "Coke"

    -Your favorite color is "K & B Purple"

    -You know the easiest way to make money when it's not Mardi Gras: sell a bag of the cheap plastic bead to a tourist for 30 bucks!!!

    -You know the name of the city you live in is "N'awlins"

    -You called in on "The Buddy D Show" just to hear him say "Mitsubishi" (RIP, Buddy! We'll miss you!)

    -Your favorite Christmas songs include such Benny Grunch classics as "The 12 Yats of Christmas", "O Little Town of Destrahan", "Christmas in Chalmette", and "Ain't 'Der No More"


    If there's any other New Orleanians out there, let me know what you think!!!

    Buddy D was the sportscaster for about 60 or so years. Everybody knew him and loved him. He had his own show, "The Buddy D Show" on weekdays on the radio, and he had a speech impediment. He died just recently. I am honored to attend the same school as Buddy Diliberto.

    You Might Be from Wisconsin if...

    YOU MIGHT BE FROM WISCONSIN IF......

    If you define Summer as three months of bad sledding...

    If your definition of a small town is one that only has one bar... (we have more bars than stop lights)

    If you have ever gotten frostbitten and sunburned in the same week... (yeah)

    If you know what "cow-tipping" is..... (been there, done that)

    If a brat is something you eat ... (but it doesn't mean they taste good)

    If you know that Eau Claire is not something you eat.....

    If you have no problem spelling Milwaukee..

    If you used to think Deer Season was included as an official school holiday... (even the teachers take off of school....)

    If you go to work in a snowsuit in the morning and return home wearing shorts...

    When you tell someone where you are from and they say: 'I thought that was part of Canada'... (ok... this actually happened to me during my second trip to WDW)

    Cheese is an important staple in your diet...

    There was at least one kid in your class who had to help milk cows in the morning... (yep... KP... gotta love her)

    You have to drive thirty minutes to the nearest movie theater... (until we built one last Christmas)

    You ever went to a wedding reception in a bowling alley... (it was a bar/ bowling alley)

    At least twice a year, the kitchen doubles as a meat processing plant...

    Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway. (or an Amish buggy)

    You know several people who have hit deer more than once... (who hasn't?)

    You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching. (got pulled over for going 86mph actually)

    Long Islanders are funny, too!

    You're truly from Lawn Guylan (Long Island) if you can relate to any of the following:

    1. You've always liked Billy Joel and you own several of his "records."
    2. You 'pawk' your 'caw' on the driveway, and drive on the parkway.
    3. You've seen a concert at Jones Beach - the best place in the world to see a show.
    4. If you're not from Long Island, or the Five Boroughs, you're not really from "NEW YAWK."
    5. You don't go to Manhattan, you go to "the City"
    6. When someone asks you "where are you from?", you don't say NY...You say "from Lawn Guylan"... Like it was already the 51st state.
    7. You never, ever, want to "change at Jamaica."
    8. You never realize you have an accent until you leave. (Or until you go back for a visit, and everyone sounds funny)
    9. Good pizza is located no more than ten minutes away. From anyplace. Same with good bagels.
    10. You know you live "ON" Long Island, not "IN" Long Island like he said on Everybody Loves Raymond.
    11. You know at least 3 pizza places and 3 Chinese restaurants in your town. Most likely at lot more.
    12. Although they are within close driving range, you may not have visited the Empire State building, the Statue of Liberty, the Museum of Natural History, etc. (But you HAVE been to Radio City at least one time)
    13. You replace the letter "r" from the end of words that end with "r", with "ah". (i.e. watah... beah, mothah, fathah, sistah, brothah)
    14. You wonder what's the big deal about the Hamptons?
    15. You've gone to the diner at 2:00 am.
    16. You've had a seagull **** on your car at Jones Beach or Robert Moses.
    17. Either your parents or your grandparents lived in the city. (or one of the five boroughs)
    18. You know it's "The L.I.E." or "The Expressway", never "495". And you know exactly why it is called "the world's longest parking lot".
    19. You or someone you know has owned an animal that came from North Shore Animal League.
    20. You don't have to go far to see your family.
    21. You know or are related to someone who worked for Grumman. And it will always be called Grumman.
    22. You can correctly pronounce places like Hauppauge, Ronkonkoma, Islandia & Massapequa.
    23. Doesn't everyone in the country pay at least $6000 a year in property taxes, on a Levitt sized home? (smaller than houses seen on Everybody Loves Raymond)
    24. You know that the town of Baldwin is not named after The Baldwins. They're from Massapequa, DUH!
    25. You hate when people, not from NY, try to do "the accent." Ouch!

    There's a website with a whole bunch of these from all over at:

    I am not from Lawn Guy Land (as I have heard it called ) but I know how to pronounce them.
    It could be because I listen to WCBS NewsRadio all the time. I am from southeastern CT.

    The L.I.E has a number? I've always thought it was just the L.I.E (I grew up in Southwestern CT and listen to BLI)

    Yeah, it's interstate 495 on the maps and a few road signs, but hardly anybody from the Island will call it that!

    I have friends in Southern CT, and they also agree that the best radio reception comes from stations across the Long Island Sound.

    The funniest experience I've had with Long Island town names was a time I called a mid-western company to find out where I could buy their product. The very helpful CS rep ran down a list of towns and mangled the names so badly: Massapequa Park, Speonk, Mattituck, Quogue, Syosset. Finally she got to Islip, and gleefully says "oh, finally, an easy one -"IS-lip!". Unfortunately, it's pronounced "I-slip" and it was very hard not to giggle.

    Adding another one to the N'awlins list because this just happened to one of my friends!

    Your house doesn't get "rolled", it gets "beaded".
