You Know You’re From St. Louis When…

You love toasted ravioli with Budweiser beer.

“Vacation” is a choice between Silver Dollar City and Lake of the Ozarks.

You can find Pestalozzi Street by aroma alone.

You can get anywhere in 20 minutes, except on highway 40.

You can debate for 30 minutes whether Missouri Baking or Marge Amighetti makes the best Italian bread.

You know what “Party Cove” is, and where the “lake” is.

You still can’t believe the Arena is gone.

Your first question to a new person is, “Where did you go to High School?”

Your non-St. Louisan friends always ask if you’re aware there is no “r” in “wash.”

You know at least one person who’s gotten hurt at Johnson Shut-ins.

You know in your heart that Mizzou can beat Nebraska in football.

You think the four major food groups are Beef, Pork, Budweiser and Imo’s.

You know there are really only three salad dressings: Imo’s, Zia’s and Rich and Charlie’s.

You’ll pay for your kid to go to college unless they want to go to KU.

You would rather have a root canal without anesthetic than drive on Manchester on a Saturday afternoon.

It just doesn’t seem like a wedding without mostaciolli. AND YOU PRONOUNCE IT ‘MUSKACHOLLI’. The balance of the menu is ham, boiled roast beef, string beans with ham and of course pitchers of Busch Bavarian (class weddings have Bud)

You know, within a three-mile radius, where another St. Louisan grew up as soon as they open their mouth.

You know what a Pork Steak is…and what kind of sauce to put on it!

Everyone in your family has floated the Meramec River at least once.

A hoosier is someone that lives just south of Chouteau, not a person from Indiana.

You have made fun of Mike Shanahan and tried to imitate him ordering another cold, frosty Busch Bavarian Beer.

You have listened to Mike’s broadcast on KMOX, while watching the game on TV and wonder what game he is watching. A tear forms in your eye as someone mentions their favorite Jack Buck story.

You’ve said, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.”

Your favorite summer treat is handed to you upside-down

You bleed Blue between September and May

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

You think Imo's is larger than Pizza Hut.

You failed world geography in school because you thought Cuba, Versailles, California, Nevada, Houston, Cabool, Louisiana, Springfield, and Mexico were cities in Missouri.

You actually get these jokes and forward them to all your Missouri friends.

My sister lives in florida, and pop isn't pop there. that's right! everything, and i mean EVERYTHING is coke.

(this is a true story)
I was at the bar with my brother in law. we were drunk, talking to some of the people there. i said something about pop, one of them made a comment to me that it's called coke and asked where i was from. I tell him Ohio. He proceeds to call me a yankee, to which i reply "Last time i checked, you guys lost that war".... yeah. he didn't like that very much. lol. Luckily, i avoided a fight (probably cause he was the only other guy there, and my brother in law is 6'4 and 260)

In Minnesota (Minne-snow-tah) they say that if summer comes on a Sunday, you have a picnic!

You have to add sugar to your tea if you want it sweetened.

You get the most awesome deal on something and you call it "pretty good."

The local paper publishes a Pain in the Posterior (PIP) index with various points assigned to various kinds of winter weather. The ratings range from Absolute Laughter to Apocalyptic Pain.

Young men start wearing their summer clothing on days when it is sunny and 40 degrees.

You know the difference between St. Paul and Minneapolis and why it is important.

Opening day of deer season is a holiday.

There was 6 inches of snow on Easter Sunday.

You have had first-hand experience with Lutefisk.

You know you are from Ohio when your single greatest desire is not moving out of Ohio. (This is a personal experience comment, I lived there for many years and all the friends I made STILL live there)

You know you're from New Jersey when:

You've eaten at a diner, when you were stoned or drunk, at 3 am.

Whenever you park, there's a Camaro within three spots of you.

At least three people in your family still love Bruce Springsteen, and you know what town Jon Bon Jovi is from.

how you know your from youngstown...

You're more worried about the Brown's / Steelers quarterback's health than your own.

Your high school football games draw more fans than most college games.

You say you are from Y-town or Warren but you actually live in a city close by (who actually REALLY lives there)

You actually thought the legal drinking age was 18, until you made a trip to the bars in Cleveland and they wouldn't let you in.

You're out of town friends get scared when you go through a red light while driving through youngstown, you reassure them that's it's scarier when you stop.

You find yourself randomly checking on your car while at bar, who knows at what time you have to report it stolen.

You spend all your money at the bars, just so you won't have to give any to the guy that jumps you.

There is no speed limit signs, because what cop really has time to worry about someone speeding.

You and your friends all fight over whose going to be the "DD" (degsignated drunk)

When someone says their at a "Party on the Plaza" you know where to find them.

UCLA is not only in California...

You have been to JJ's and once your 21 you realize you don't fit in anymore...and drink elsewhere

"The cell" is not only where you spent your last saturday morning, but where you drank at that Friday night

Everyone wonders why you think $1 drafts are expensive, but you've had drafts for a penny before!

You don't think it's weird to be drinking and gambling at a church festival, and every weekend in the summer a new church is having one.

The biggest thrill you got in H.S. is trashing another city's school the night before the "Big" game.

When you got caught for trashing the school, the principal...gave you a high five!

You know the location of the following towns, know someone from them or have spent time there: Mineral Ridge, North Lima, Poland, Coitsville, Columbiana, Yankee Lake, Mesopotamia and Damascus.

You've memorized lines from the movie "The Godfather." You actually say those lines in everyday life.

If you're a girl, you're biggest fear is getting hit on by a
hairy-chested man, heavily weighted in gold chains, who refers to his friends as "Gino" at any local dance club.

If you're a guy, your biggest fear is seeing your buddy's car parked near Mickey's Bar, but see him walk out of "the Mixx."


If you are a girl, you dream to work at Delphi Packard Electric, but settle on being a beautician.

The head cheerleader from your high school is now a beautician.

The student, who graduated number 1 in your class, is now a beautician.

As your out-of-town friends brag about their latest trips to Europe, you think to yourself, "I can drive past any local ethnic church and see all the foreigners if I want to."

You eat out at least once a week at a Mafia-owned Italian pizza parlor.

Your father has worked for the same company for over 20 years.

You don't see what all the hype is about Disney World when Cedar Point is just a few hours away.

You don't see what all the hype is about Cedar Point, when the
Canfield Fair runs for a week.

You're having a hard time deciding where to take your date out for dinner and a night on the town "Wings at BW3 and a movie" or "Chalupas at Taco Bell and checking out the Hot Rods at the A&W"

"I seen " is eloquently used instead of "I saw" by somebody you know.

Everybody you know has at least one Italian brother-in-law.

All of your neighbors are Italian.

You don't understand what all the hype is about over Rolling Rock beer.

You know that McDonald is not only the last name of a clown; it's also a
town.

You know that Campbell is not only a soup, but also a city, and you also know that it's pronunciation rhymes with "mammal."

You consider a great vacation a trip to Geauga Lake, Sea World or Lake Erie... for something a little more exotic, a trip to canada

You're 18 years old, think this town is "the pits" and can't wait to move away -- then 10 years later, you move back because "it's a great place to raise a family."

You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

For the life of you, you can't understand why all your out-of-town friends don't know what Wedding Soup is.

You know the four seasons: winter, Still winter, Almost winter, and

You can use the phrase "white pizza" and not even bat an eye.

Lastly....
You can proudly say you're from the crime capital of the U.S.A. (report from 1994)

Although I was raised in NC and understand a lot of what Bethany posted, I do live in AZ now.

(I have a secret BBQ recipe and I miss Topsail and Bojangles. )



You Know You're In Arizona When . . .


You've signed so many petitions to recall governors you can't remember the name of the incumbent
You notice your car overheating before you drive it
You can say "Hohokam" and people don't think you're laughing funny
You no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water
You see more irrigation water on the street than there is in the Salt River
You know a swamp cooler is not a happy hour drink
You can hear the weather forecast of 115 degrees without flinching
You can be in the snow, then drive for an hour... and it'll be over 100 degrees
You have to go to a fake beach for some fake waves
You discover, in July, that it only takes two fingers to drive your car
You know you can make sun tea instantly
You run your air conditioner in the middle of winter so you can use your fireplace
The best parking place is determined by shade -- not distance
You realize that "Valley Fever" isn't a disco dance
Hotter water comes from the cold water tap than the hot one
You can pronounce the words: "Saguaro", "Tempe", "San Xavier", "Canyon de Chelly", "Mogollon Rim" and "Cholla"
It's noon in July, kids are on summer vacation and yet all the streets are totally empty of both people and cars
You actually burn your hand opening the car door
Sunscreen is sold year round, kept right at the checkout counter
Sunscreen w/a formula less than 50 spf is a joke
You put on fresh sunscreen just to go check the mailbox
Some fool can market mini-misters for joggers and some other fools will actually buy them
Worse -- some fools actually try to jog
You know that hot air balloons can't rise, because the air temperature is hotter than the air inside the balloon
No one would dream of putting vinyl upholstery in a car
You can understand the reason for a town named "Why"

Default You know you are from the Pacific Northwest if:

You know the state flower is mildew.

You know the state motto: "Rain? What rain?"

You have a T-shirt that says, "200 Billion Slugs Can't Be Wrong!"

You use the term "sun break" and know what it means.

You open the windows in the summer to let the warm air in.

Your Early Girl tomatoes ripen in September.

Names like Point No Point, Useless Bay, Deception Pass, Destruction Island and Friday Harbor don't phase you.

You feel guilty throwing out paper or aluminum cans.

To you, if it doesn't have snow or hasn't erupted recently, it is not a real mountain.

You know more people who own a boat than own an air conditioner.

You will stand on a deserted corner in the rain and wait for the "Walk" signal.

You feel overdressed if you wear a suit to a fancy restaurant.

You can order coffee 10 different ways.

You can taste the difference between Seattle's Best, Tully's and Starbucks.

To you, swimming is an indoor sport.

You never go camping without a poncho and waterproof matches.

You know the difference between Coho, Chinook, and Sockeye salmon.

You know how to pronounce Puyallup, Sequim, Sekiu, Yakima, Oregon, Wenatchee, Steilacoom, Quileute, Cle Elum and Willamette.

You know Forks is not a bunch of eating utensil but a town on the Olympic Peninsula.

You can tell the difference between Thai, Japanese and Chinese food.

You know that Boring is not a state of mind, but a town in Oregon.

You have no concept of humidity without precipitation.

You know that a forecast of "rain, changing to showers" means "constant drizzle changing to intermittent drizzle."

You are not fazed by the weather forecast, "Today: Showers followed by rain. Tomorrow: Rain followed by showers."

You rejoice at a forecast of "rain with sun breaks."

You know what "The mountain is out" means.

When the temperature gets above 50, you put on your shorts (If you're warm blooded, that is. If you're cold blooded, you wear a sweatshirt all summer.)

You can point out at least two volcanoes, even if you can't see through the cloud cover.

You think people who use umbrellas are either tourists or wimps (or both).

You have actually used your mountain bike on a mountain.

You knew immediately that the view out of Frazier's window was fake.

You use a down comforter and wear flannel pajamas in the summer.

Your kid's Halloween costumes fit under a raincoat.

You know all the seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Raining (Spring), Road Construction (Summer), Deer and Elk season (Fall).

Every year you have to buy new sunglasses because you can't find the old ones after such a long time.

You know you've been working in the midwest too long when you understand most of 3degree's Packerland references
