A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.









A good parking place has nothing to do with distance from the store,
but everything to do with shade.









Your winter coat is made of denim

You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and mosquito bites

You're younger than thirty but some of your friends are over 65

You know the four seasons really are: almost summer, summer,

"

Anything under 70 is chilly.

You understand the futility of exterminating cockroaches.

You know why flamingos are pink.









You think a six-foot alligator is actually pretty average.

Re: hahaha ever been to florida?

I highlighted the significant ones.

You know your from New Jersey when:

At least half of the people you went to high school with went to Rutgers

You know that the state isn't one big oil refinery

You know what a "jug handle" is.

You know that a WaWa is a convenience store.

You know that the state isn't all farmland.

You know that there are no "beaches" in new Jersey - there's "The Shore," and you know that the road to the shore is "The Parkway" not "The Garden State Highway."

Even your school cafeteria made good Italian subs, and, you call it a "sub" not a "submarine sandwich" or worse yet, a "hoagy" or a "hero."

You know that "Acme" is an actual store, not just a Warner Bros creation.

You know how to translate this conversation: "Jeet yet?" "No, Jew?"

You don't think "What exit" (do you live near?) is very funny.

You know that people from 609 area code are "a little different." <<<< LOL SO TRUE

Your car is covered with yellow-green dust in April and May.

You have at least one friend who drives a truck.

You live within 20 minutes of at least three different malls.

You don't take no crap from no one.
[size=20pt]You've never pumped your own gas. [/size]

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

You Know You’re In Missouri When …



You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

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

The phrase, "I'm going to the Lake this weekend," can mean only one thing.

Little smokies are something you serve on special occasions.

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

You think Jesse James is a hero.

You think I-44 is spelled "foarty-foar.”

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

You know all 4 seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Construction

You can't think of anything better than sitting on the porch in the middle of the summer during a thunderstorm.

You'll pay for your kids to go to college unless they want to go to KU.

You know that Concordia is halfway between Kansas City and Columbia, and Columbia is halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City, and Warrenton outlet mall is halfway between Columbia and St. Louis.

You know that Harry S. Truman, Walt Disney and Mark Twain are all from Missouri.

You know what "cow tipping" or "Possum Kicking" is.

You think "frog gigging" should be an Olympic sport.

You think Imo's is larger than Pizza Hut.

You can tell the difference between a horse and a cow from a distance.

You don't put too much effort into hairstyles due to wind and weather.

There's a tornado warning and the whole town is outside watching for it.

The local gas station sells live bait.

Your radio buttons are preset buttons are country.

Silver Dollar City Train in Branson, Missouri

Frisco Silver Dollar Line Steam Train at Silver Dollar City, photo courtesy Silver Dollar City.

"Vacation" means driving to Silver Dollar City, Worlds of Fun or Six Flags.

Down south to you means Arkansas.

You know if another Missourian is from eastern, middle or western Missouri as soon as they open their mouth.

You know enough to get your driving done early on Sundays before the Sunday drivers come out.

Everyone in your family has been on a "Float trip."

You've never met any celebrities.

Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.

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

You measure distance in minutes.

You know several people who have hit a deer.

Your school classes were canceled because of cold or heat in the same month.

You've ridden the school bus for an hour each way.

You know what and where "Party Cove" is.

You think Missouri is pronounced with an "ah" at the end.

You think ethanol makes your truck "run a lot better."

You know what's knee-high by the Fourth of July.

You see people wear bib overalls at funerals.

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

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

All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, or grain.

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

You think of the major four food groups as beef, pork, beer, and Jell-O salad with marshmallows.

You carry jumper cables in your car and know that everyone else should.

You only own 3 spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup.

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie.

The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires 6 pages for sports.

You think that deer season is a national holiday.

You know which leaves make good toilet paper.

You find 105 degrees F "a little warm".

You think Imo's is larger than Pizza Hut.

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

__________________________________________________ ___________________


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.

A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.

Publix has the best sub sandwiches on the planet. I have to eat at least five of them every time I go down to FL. They're up there with Chipotle burritos
