Idaho Funnies

Well, There doesn't seem to be a lot going on around here this week. As far as the weather goes we are under an air inversion which means cooler air is trapped by a layer of warmer air above. All we are seeing are smog and grey skies.. I guess this is better than more snow.

Since I have been in this area since 1965 and I consider myself to be an Idahoan. I thought I would share a few funnies that make me know I am a true Idahoan.

You Know You Are From Idaho When:

You know all 4 seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Construction.

You know how to pronounce the entire name of Boise, Idaho.

You know several people who have hit a deer.

You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" is.

You know which leaves make good toilet paper.

You only own 3 spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup.

You see people wear bib overalls at funerals.

You think ethanol makes your truck "run a lot better.

You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

You think of the major four food groups as beef, pork, beer, and Jell-O salad with marshmallows.

You know cow pies aren't made of beef

You've ever given a snow shovel or an ice scraper as a gift...and not as a joke.

You've seen snow in every month of the year.

You know where sugar comes from ......... but are a little bewildered by the term "cane sugar."

You can discuss the taste of rocky mountain oysters...
You can discuss the source of rocky mountain oysters...
You can discuss the harvesting of rocky mountain oysters... ......without throwing up.

And that's it for today.

Well, I'm not from Idaho, but I can relate to a number of those.

I have seen snow in every month of the year, eleven of them in Idaho and the other, July, in Yellowstone in 1995.

We lived in Idaho for a total of 4 years when I was in the Navy.

I'm not even an "Idahoan" and I'm sad to say I know what most of those phrases mean........
