Foxworthy on New England

Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about New Englanders... Forget Rednecks .... If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in New England . If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in New England. If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in New England. If Vacation means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend, you live in New England . If you measure distance in hours, you live in New England . If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in New England . If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in New England . If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in New England . If you install security lights on your house and garage but leave both unlocked, you live in New England. If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in New England . If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in New England . If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph you're going 80 and everybody is passing you, you live in New England . If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in New England . If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in New England . If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in New England . If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly', you live in New England . If there's a Dunkin Donuts on every corner, you live in New England . If you think everyone else has a funny accent, you live in New England . If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your New England friends, you live or have lived in New England.

Hmm

Much, but not all, of this applies to Minnesota/Wisconsin as well. The biggest difference is that Midwesterners seldom use their horns. In CT, drivers let other cyclists and drivers know their opinion!

The deer one is pretty much everywhere from the burbs out of any US city I guess...

The 4 seasons one got a big chuckle here...

Michigan

Works for Michigan too, although you have to get a few miles north of Detroit for some of it to apply.
