you know you're from alabama when...

  • You have a party or a barbeque whenever Alabama plays Auburn in football.
  • You go to Gulf Shores every summer.
  • You call the Atlanta Braves baseball team "us" like they're actually from Alabama.
  • You would much rather visit Florida than California.
  • You don't "take", you "carry" or "tote"... as in "You want me to carry you down to the 7-11?"
  • A soft drink isn't soda, cola, or pop, it's Coke.
  • You call it a "buggy" and not a shopping cart.
  • You've said "fixin' to," "might could," or "usetacould" during the last week.
  • Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.
  • You know the meaning of the phrase "Fobbed again."
  • You can properly pronounce Eufaula, Opelika, Bayou La Batre, and Oneonta.
  • The Talladega 500 is the biggest sporting event of any sort during the entire year.
  • You know exactly what chitlins and mountain oysters are, and you know someone who eats them anyway.
  • You think that people who complain about the humidity in other states are sissies.
  • You aren't surprised to find rental movies, groceries, ammunition and bait all in the same store.
  • You've missed a wedding or a funeral to go to a football game.
  • Asian food is always "CHINESE" regardless of the fact that it may actually be Korean or Japanese or Thai
  • You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Alabama.

I found a site that has all sorts of blog fodder, so I will be pulling from it every few days, for your amusement, and mine. Enjoy the amusements.
