i found this list floating around somewhere in cyberspace...some of it is a bit amusing, while some of it is just ridiculous.
for your amusement:
You know you're from Wisconsin when...
Your whole family wears green and gold to church on Sunday. uh, church? what's that?
Snow tires come standard on all your cars. actually, we don't get that much snow. i've never had snow tires on any vehicle i've ever owned.
You refer to the Packers as "we." this has been known to happen, and i find it quite disturbing.
You have gotten frost-bitten and sunburned in the same week. this has also been known to happen and is also quite disturbing.
You can identify an Illinois accent. true.
You know what cow-tipping is. i've only heard of it...never actually done it.
Down South to you means Chicago. um, no. chicago is only a little over an hour away from milwaukee.
Travelling coast to coast means going from LaCrosse to Milwaukee. maybe to those who live in lacrosse.
A brat is something you eat. brats are disgusting.
You have no problem spelling Milwaukee. only when i type too fast.
You consider Madison exotic. madison is far from exotic. it's full of college kids and hippies.
You don't have a coughing fit from one sip of Pabst Blue Ribbon. what's wrong with pabst?
You can actually pronounce Oconomowoc. yes, yes i can...but i've never been there.
You know what a bubbler is. unfortunately, i was raised calling water fountains 'bubblers', but i'm really trying to get myself away from sounding that stupid.
You go out for a fish fry every Friday. no. fish is gross.
You can recognize someone from Illinois because of their driving. usually.
You know how to polka. does the chicken dance count?
You drink soda and refer to your dad as "pop." sort of...soda IS soda, but my dad is an asshole.
Formal wear is blue jeans and a baseball cap. maybe blue jeans with some cute heels and matching purse. no hat though.
Your 4th of July Family Picnic was moved indoors due to frost. that has never happened.
You know where Waukesha is AND can pronounce it. sadly, yes.
You can visit Luxembourg, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Berlin, New London, and Poland all in one afternoon. yes, i suppose you could.
You design your Halloween costumes to fit over a snowsuit. little kids are sensitive to cold!
You've seen mosquitoes with landing lights. at least the cockroaches around here don't fly.
You have more miles on your snow blower than your car. i use a shovel.
You enjoy driving in the winter because the potholes fill in with snow. there is nothing enjoyable about driving in the snow.
Your sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie. you don't know me very well then.
You owe more money on your snowmobile than on your car. car is paid off, and i've never even been on a snowmobile.
At least twice a year, your kitchen doubles as a meat processing plant. meat is a no-no in my kitchen, period.
Your snow blower gets stuck on the roof. again with the snowblower!
You think the start of deer season is a national holiday. only if national holidays mean celebrating the slaughter of innocent animals.
You find 0 degrees a little chilly. depends on the wind chill factor.
You know what to do with a Blatz. sure, i pour it into a pint and ask the customer for $1.50.
yes, it's over. i will not bore you any longer...
