Pinkie Winky You know youre from Pennsylvania when.........

The first day of Buck season and the first day of Doe season are school
holidays.

You own only three spices "salt, pepper and Heinz ketchup".

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

Words like "hoagie", "crick", "chipped ham", and "pop" actually mean
something to you.

You can use the phrase "fire hall wedding reception" and not even bat an
eye.

You constantly refer to Pennsylvania as "PA" (pronounced Pee-ay). How
many other states do that?

You know that Blue Ball, Intercourse, Climax, Bird-in-Hand, Beaver, Moon,
Virginville, Paradise, Mars, and Slippery Rock are PA towns.

Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the
highway.

You measure distance in hours.

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

You often switch from "Heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

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

You can actually eat cold pizza (even for breakfast) and know others who
do the same. (Those from NY find this "barbaric".)

You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know that it comes in
several colors: Red, White, Brown, Gold.

At least 5 people on your block have electric "candles" in all or most of
their windows all year long.

You know what a "State Store" is, and your out of state friends are
incredulous that you can't purchase liquor at the mini-mart.

You know several places to purchase or that serve Scrapple, Summer Sausage
(Lebanon Bologna), and Hot Bacon Dressing.

You can't go to a Pennsylvania wedding without hearing the "Chicken Dance"
and at least 5 Polkas.

You live for summer, when street fairs signal the beginning of funnel cake
season.

You ask the waitress for "dippy eggs" for breakfast.

Your turkey has "filling," not "stuffing," and most certainly, NOT
"dressing."

When your graduating class consisted of Polish & Italian names.

You actually understand these jokes and send them onto other
Pennsylvanians.
