Just had to

  You know You are from Georgia When...

1. You can properly pronounce Chickamauga, DeKalb, Dahlonega, Smyrna, Buena Vista, Valdosta, Okefenokee, and La Fayette.
(P.S. Atlanta = ADD-LANNA not AT-LANT-A.)

2. You think people who complain about the heat in their states are sissies.

3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.

4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade.

5. Stores don't have bags or shopping carts, they have sacks and buggies.

6. You've seen people wear bib overalls at weddings and funerals.

7. You think everyone from a Yankee-state has an accent.

8. You measure distance in minutes.

9. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean.

10. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit.

11. You know cow pies are not made of beef.

12. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.

13. You know someone who has a belt buckle bigger than your fist.

14. Almost everyone you know is either Baptist or Methodist.

15. A Mercedes Benz isn't a status symbol. A Chevy Silverado Extended Bed Crew Cab is.

16. You know everything goes better with Ranch dressing.


  1. Or, sixteen reasons I live in Atlantic City! LOL!

    That's cute. We have one for New Jersey, like pronouncing "creek" as "crick" and "Buena" as "Byoona". Too cute.

  2. Michigan has some funny ones, too. We measure distance in hours. We also show where we live by holding up our hand like a mitten, lol! What about saying you come from Jaw-jah?


  3. I'm still laughing, being from the Deep South the truisms are still ringing in my ears! #12 especially struck home and that was 35 years ago!

  4. Too funny..loved them all.
