Stores don't have bags; they have sacks.

You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: "Where's my coat at?" or "If you go to town I wanna go with."
You carry jumper cables in your car.
You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" is.
You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires 6 pages for sports.

Quoting KaiGywer (Thread starter): Upon seeing an ocean for the first time, you say, "Hey! That looks like Lake Superior!"
Boy! I believe that! The only real camping I ever did was on the shore of Lake Superior while I was in college...... a storm of Biblical proportions came up..... washed everything away except us 4 Eastern hippies and a dog. I remember a great big watermelon washed up the next day..... it was delicious..... the state police helicopter circled us and bullhorned down, "Are you ALRIGHT?".... Well, except for being scared half out our minds.... yeah. Sure. You have to understand that us Eastern-ers have to get our kicks by riding the subway at 300am.... Nature is six letter word for us.

Oh damned..... right. All those little Bambi-es biting the dust..... I get my venison from a market on Gansveroot St.... they even cut it into "stew" size.
I have trouble eating anything that's looked me in the eyes...... The subway is so much easier.
Jeez, thanks again..... I needed this post.
There's nothing more beautiful than flying into the dawn.

That damned lutefisk. That crap is fish soaked in lye for two weeks. If it's not rinsed properly it can cause corrosive burns. It smells so bad after it's cooked that it makes some people sick. Always served the same way...with creamed peas and undercooked potatoes.
It's pretty bad when you have to wear a rubber apron, rubber boots, rubber gloves, a mask, and goggles to prepare a meal.
