I couldnt just sit around and let those east coasters take over with the "you might be blah blah if.." posts.. so here's one for all us Michiganders out there.

You Might be a Michigander If......

You have ever been sunburned and frostbitten in the same week.

You point to a spot on the palm of your right hand when telling people where you're from.

You can explain the difference between yoopers, trolls and fudgies.

Owning a Japanese car was a hanging offense in your hometown.

You learned to pilot a boat before the training wheels came off your bicycle.

You know that a place called Kalamazoo actually exists.

You know someone who was Asparagus Queen at a county fair.

Someone says "down south" and you think of Toledo.

Your family breaks into violence during the MSU/UM football game.

You define summer as three months of bad sledding.

You had to recite "By the Shores of Gitchee-goomie" for your 7th grade English class.

You drive 80 mph on the freeway and always pass on the right.

The trees in your yard have spigots.

You have as many Canadian coins in your pocket as American.

Coast-to-coast means Port Huron to Muskegon.

You know how to play Euchre. (and you know what Euchre is.)

You are not fazed by a traffic sign saying "Snowmobile Crossing."

You bake with "soda" and drink "pop."

You have no problem spelling names like Mackinac,Tahquamenon and Ypsilanti.

The Big Three are either Ford, Chrysler and GM or Domino's, Little Caesar's and Hungry Howie's.

You know that it's usually warmer in Hell than in Paradise.

You go "up north" for the weekends.

Your child's ball game has ever been snowed out.

"Submarine" is a sandwich and "Big Mac" is a bridge.

You used to believe Ernie Harwell when he said that the fly ball that went into the stands at Tiger Stadium was caught by a man from Warren.

You don't have coughing fit after a sip of Vernors AND when you ask for Ginger Ale you expect Vernors, not Canada Dry.

You know all the lyrics to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."

You visit Florida and are frustrated because the newspapers there don't report hockey scores.

You refer to Kalamazoo, Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor as K-zoo,Ypsi-tucky and A-Squared.

You thought Alkaline batteries were named after a Detroit Tiger outfielder.

You know all the lyrics to "Take This Job and Shove It."

You think that having clogged sinuses is normal.

You know that 50 miles any direction from Detroit, is still considered "Detroit".

You can identify an Ohio accent.

All your cars come standard with all-season or snow tires.

You have no problem spelling or pronouncing "Mackinac".

You know what a "pastie" is.

If fudge and bicycles remind you of your honeymoon (Mackinac Island)

You know that Pontiac and Cadillac are cities.

You had tornado drills in elementary school.

If the first decision you make on an international trip is "bridge or tunnel?"

If you think driving in the winter is better because the potholes get filled with snow.

How about:

Your old vehicle serves the same purpose as a deer rifle (shotgun down south...)

Very funny. It's neat how I can relate to alot of that stuff, even as an Ohioan. Of course, we have a cabin up North and friends down south so I'm not a total stranger. Big grin

PS- Mmmm....pasty...

It took me a while to figure out how to do that. To bad they don't sell Vernors here in Boston.

Or if you're a real throwback, you still call it "Thrifties" The chain used to be known as Meijer Thrify Acres".

For what it's worth, it's now snowed for the past 26 consecutive days up in Houghton (measureable).. Definately bringing back some fond memories there.

HAHAHA I left DTW in 1980 .... all them things are true. I would like to see something added about the 1" of salt for every 1/2 " of snow they put on the roads.... Did you know that Hungry Howies used to be called Dino's Pizza ??? I know cause I worked there in 1977 ..... It was a fun job.


Next time try the old "dirty Sanchez" She'll love it !!!

The funny thing is, Ive lived here all my life and I fit alot of those statements.

Another one I thought of is: You forget what color your car is during the winter because its always white.


And yes, I do say "Meijers"... Big grin

I'm only half hour from MI and a lot of that holds true for us. In fact, N. Indiana is more like Michigan than S. Indiana. Euchre, pop, tornado drills, etc. But I don't know what a pasty is (unless its those little round things for tits).

My cousins in NY always picked on us Michigan kids for saying pop in our younger years.
