1. Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air

2. There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in LOUISIANA.

3. There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in LOUISIANA plus a couple no one's seen before.

4. If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.

5. Onced and twiced are words.

8. People actually grow and eat okra.

9. Fixinto is one word.

10. There is no such thing as 'lunch'. There is only dinner and then there is supper.

11. Ice tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when
you're two. We do like a little tea with our sugar!

12. Backards and forwards means 'I know everything about you.'

13. Jeet? is actually a phrase meaning 'Did you eat?'

14. You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is.. You work until you' re done or it's too dark to see.

15. You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.

YOU KNOW YOUR FROM LOUISIANA IF:

1. You measure distance in minutes.

2. You've ever had to switch from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day.

3. You use 'fix' as a verb. Example: 'I'm fixing to go to the store '

8. You only own five spices: Tony's (Chachere), salt, pepper, Tabasco and ketchup.

10. You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.

11. You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit 'a little warm'.

12. You know all four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas

13. You know whether another LOUISIANIAN is from, north or south as soon as they start talking (speaking).

14. Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as goin' Wal-martin or off to Wally World?

15. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good gumbo weather.

16. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop...it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor.
Example: 'What kinda coke you want?'

17. Fried catfish is the other white meat.

18. We don't need no stinking driver's Ed....if our mama says we can drive, we can drive.

19. You understand these jokes and forward them to your friends from LOUISIANA (and those who just wish they were). Not EVERYONE can be a LOUISIANIAN, it's an art form and a gift from God

Um, both of these apply to me. Is that wrong?

Southern appellations are probably more rooted in reality and more straightforwardly transparent than more refined speech (such as that employed by Damnyankees - one three syllable word). They have the advantage of parsimony as well - the three syllables of "y'all wanna", as in "Hey, y'all wanna hold ma beer an watch me do this" is yards more efficient than "would all of you want to" or "Does everyone here want to". Resource conservation, while preserving the whole meaning.

For instance, "I'm fixinta git to the store" is a brief, fully transparent, parsimonious, yet complete appraisal of the tasks involved in obtaining the goal, if your main source of transportation happens to be a '62 Chevy pickup on its third hundred thousand miles.

There is indeed some fixinta before you kin git. The whole meal deal in four syllables.

You drive an old vehicle - you therefore have a seasoned sense of reality!

Bill, I can tell you're in denial. It's OK. We're all in there with you. Well, most of us.

Default Tea Anyone?

A young woman tells her story:

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me and my older brother. I was maybe 1-1/2 years old and had just recovered from an accident in which my arm had been broken among other injuries. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite new toys.

Dad was in the living room engrossed in the evening news and my brother was playing nearby when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home. Dad had her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'

My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Dad and she watches him drink it up, and then she says, "Did it ever occur to you that the only place that Linda can reach to get water is the toilet??"

You're from Colorado if ----

You'll eat ice cream in the winter.

When the weather report says it's going to be 65 degrees, you wear shorts.

It snows 5 inches and you don't expect school to be canceled.

You'll wear flip flops every day of the year, regardless of temperature.

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people's. And then you make
fun of them.

'Humid' is over 25%.

Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the
mountains.

You say 'the interstate' and everybody knows which one.

You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard.

You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You don't think Coors beer is that big a deal.

You went to Casa Bonita as a kid.

You've gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such
activities.

You always know the elevation of where you are.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it's going to
snow tomorrow.

You don't care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile
High.

Every movie theater has military and student discounts.

Everybody wears jeans to church.

You actually know that South Park is a real place not just a show on TV.

You know what a 'trust fund hippy' is, and you know its natural habitat is
Boulder.

You know you're talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches,
not Six Flags.

A bear on your front porch doesn't bother you.

Your two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever is beating the crap out of the Raiders.

You've been to the original Chipotle near the DU campus on Evans.

When people out East tell you they have mountains in their state too, you
just laugh.

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels 'sticky' and you notice
the sky is no longer blue.
