Hometown memes

I was born and raised in Ohio, but I've been in Kentucky longer than I was there, so I took 'em both. I've taken roina_arwen's idea and bolded ones that apply to me, and added a few notes in italics.

You Know You're From Ohio When...

You don't think of Florida first when someone mentions Miami.

You snicker when someone's from Tiffin, because you think of the State Hospital.

You think Pro football teams are supposed to wear orange!

You've heard of 3.2% beer.

Schools close for the state basketball tournament.

You're proud of your state fair, but would rather go to Cedar Point.

You live less than 30 miles from some college or university.

You know what a buckeye really is, and have a recipe for candy ones. No recipe any more, but I made 'em in Girl Scouts as a kid.

"Toward the lake" means "north" and "toward the river" means "south."

You've heard of the Great Nickel Beer Night Riot.

You know if other Ohioians are from southern or northern Ohio as soon as they open their mouths.

You root for a college team though you've never taken a class there.

You can spell words like Cuyahoga, Olentangy, Bellefontaine, and Tuscarawas Okay, maybe not spell them, but I know it's pronounced "Bell-fountain".

You always visit more than two amusement parks in one summer.

You know that Serpent Mounds were not made by snakes. They're some sort of Indian burial sites.

You know what game they're playing when the Mud Hens take on the Clippers. Minor league baseball

"Vacation" means spending a day at Cedar Point or King's Island. KI was closer, I've never been to CP.

Down south to you means Kentucky.

You thought that the Michael Stanley Band was the most popular band in the country.

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

You Know You're From Kentucky When...

No matter how much you think you talk normally, when you head up North they all think you talk
like a redneck

Your English teacher says things like "Y'all" and "Ain't Got None" My school years were in Ohio

The best restaurant in town is the Cracker Barrel Maybe not, but they are pretty good.

No matter how bad UK's basketball team is, you still belive they'll pull it off and make it to the Final 4 UK football, on the other hand... not so good

You still believe the South should be its own nation

You believe the Civil War was not a fair fight

It's not an uncommon site to see a fat man in overalls and a cowboy hat drivin' down the road in a beat up Chevy with a confederate flag hangin' off the back with music from Johhny Rebel blastin' out of his radio

Biscuits, gravy, and grits is your favorite breakfast But only if you melt a lot of cheese in the grits.

Wakin' up with coons and squirrels on your back porch is not an uncommon thing

To you, huntin' aint killin', its sorta like grocery shoppin' I don't do it myself, but as long as you're hunting for food, have fun. Sport hunters? Grrr...

You own at least 10 country or southern rock cd's But only if you include MP3's.

You only own a pair of church shoes and winter shoes

In the summer you don't wear shoes Only if I have to

Even your grandmother chews tobacco

You consider the northern part of the country "The Union" No, but Northerners are still Yankees.

A rebel flag doesn't symbolize racism to you

Your church parking lot is filled with pickups

The first words out of your mouth every time you see friends are "Howdy!", "HEY!" or "How Y'all Doin'?" There's a hometown culture clash - it annoys the heck out of me when someone asks how I am and doesn't wait for an answer.

You actually know who Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn, Keith Urban, Montgomery Gentry, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, and George Straight are. Montgomery Gentry are local boys. If you haven't heard of these guys, listen to for a while

A carbonated soft drink is a COKE, regardless of brand or flavor.

You refer to Louisville as "The Ville."

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

The Kentucky one's pretty lame, we're not all God-fearin' rednecks. cafiorello is putting together a better one if anybody wants to chip in.
