I'm a New Englander and PROUD of it!!!!

Subject: New England

Forget Rednecks is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about New Englanders...

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36
inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping it will swim by,
you might live in New England.

If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights each year because Mt. Washington is the coldest spot in the nation, and Boston gets more snow than any other major city in the US,
you live in New England.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May,
you live in New England.

If you instinctively walk like a penguin for six months out of the year,
you live in New England.

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.

And, you know you are a New Englander when: "Vacation" means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend.

You measure distance in hours.

You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.

You have switched from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.

You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.

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

You carry jumpers in your car and your girlfriend/wife knows how to use them.

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

The speed limit on the highway is 55mph -- you're going 80 and everybody is passing you!

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

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

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

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

You find 10 degrees "a little chilly."

You actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your New England friends!

And did you know that winter can not stop dedicated New England poker players - no matter what??? I found proof!!

day ,

Thanks, Robin.
I'm glad you enjoyed the pic.
Almost reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes...I miss Calvin's snow people.

I saw this redneck XMAS one today. It's goofy, to say the least.

I saw something like this adapted for Alaska once. The season... road construction. LOL.

Hi Brandy! Oh, yea, this can be shared with many cities and states with cold climates like New England. If you want, just change the location and send it to your relatives as a Christmas Hee-Haw.
Hope your DH gets a laugh too!
Thanks, Brandy!

Thanks!! I'm glad you liked it too, Gangadhar! And a Very Merry Christmas to you too! :-)

Ok, wahhboohoo..I'm glad you stopped by even though I've no idea whether or not you enjoyed your visit today.
Merry Christmas to you too.

Michele said...

That was, excuse me for saying this...
Funnier than Shit!!! OMGOSH did I roll watching this. I'm sending it to all my relatives, especially an uncle of mine who enjoys deer hunting.

Thanks Bonnie!
Just think of all the snow they had to have had to be able to make them with that much detail.
Freezes the brain just thinking about it!

Well, I gotta tell you, Michele; that list is entirely appropriate for Minnesota as well. :)
