Are you aware that Jeff Foxworthy is now picking on Michigan ? Read on.
(pretty funny and accurate)
1. If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through
18 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you might live in Michigan.


2. If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights
each year because Pellston is the coldest spot in the nation, you might live in Michigan.


3. If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March, you
might live in Michigan.


4. If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the
year, you might live in Michigan.


5. If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there, you might live in Michigan.


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


7. If you have worn shorts and a coat at the same time, you might live in Michigan.


8. If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, you might
live in Michigan.


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

Part 2 - You know you're a true MICHIGANDER when . . .

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).

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

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

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

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

11. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and
road construction.

12. You can identify a southern or eastern accent.

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

14. You were unaware that there is a legal drinking age.

16. A brat is something you eat.

17. Your neighbor throws a party
to celebrate his new pole barn.

19. Your 4th of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost.

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

21. You find 0 degrees 'a little chilly.'

22. You drink pop and bake with soda.

23. Your doctor tells you to drink Vernors and you know it's not
medicine.

2 4. You can actually drink Vernors without coughing.

25. You know what a Yooper is.

26. You think owning a Honda is Un-American.

27. You know that UP is a place, not a direction.

28. You know it's possible to live in a thumb.

You're really a Michigander if you know the difference between a Cedar Savage and a Stump jumper

Heck most of our head coaches at U of M come from West Virginia.

See, now thats what what happens when we lose to Appalachian State.

In Michigan in early May I wear insulated clothes under neoprene waders in the morning to fish for trout/steel head and in the afternoon can be in shirt sleeves playing golf with temps in the 70's.

During late May two years ago @ a backyard wedding party we actually had snow, sleet, sun and rain all in one afternoon. Temps fluctuated from 30 to 65 in a two hour period. Good thing we had salamanders for the tents.

Wouldn't trade it for any other place. But if your coming up for a visit throw in a parka or two no matter the time of year.

Michigan, first to see declining values and will bet we are the first out of that spiral.

Go Tigers, Pistons, Red Wings and, oh well we still suffer with the the Lions. Three out of four ain't bad.

He's too busy watching reruns of Boston Legal and drinking pink memosas.

The Wolverines started out atrocious in football then ended up putting a whuppin on Florida.

Other then that U of M except for basketball recently contends or wins the big ten in nearly every sport.

MSU I cheer for except when they play Michigan. Which is unlike my spartan friends that hope U of M loses no matter who they play even if its a game of tiddly winks with Ohio State - strange.

Wearing camo @ social events, good one Lobo;
