Illinois...according to Jeff Foxworthy

Sorry had to post this. and added my comments

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March,
you might live in Illinois. True for the one near me
If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the year,
you might live in Illinois.

If someone in a store offers you assistance & they don't work there,
you might live in Illinois. I do this i think

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

If you have ever worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
you might live in Illinois. this use to irritate my dad when my sis did this

If your town has an equal number of bars and churches,
you might live in Illinois. (If this isn't true, I don't know what is!!!!) SO TRUE

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

YOU KNOW YOU ARE A TRUE Illinoisan WHEN:
1. Vacation means going north or south on I55 for the weekend. My vacation is driving to chicago (i live in St. Louis)

2. You measure distance in hours. guilty again

3. You know several people who have hit a deer more than once. actually dont know many people who admit this

4. You often switch from heat to AC in the same day and back again. ha done this too


5. You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.

6. You see people wearing camouflage at social events (including weddings). have nto see this but dont doubt it

7. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked. I know people who do this

8. You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.

9. You design your kids Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

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

11. You know all 5 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, road construction, & It's Hot.

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

13. Down south means Missouri to you.

14. A brat is something you eat.

15. Your neighbor throws a party to celebrate his new pole shed.

16. You go out to a tailgate party EVERY Friday.

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

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

19. You actually understand these jokes, and you forward them to all your Illinois friends. (What's not to understand???)
