    You Know You're From Ontario

    For all my Canadian friends.. especially the Ontarians.

    You know you're from Ontario when...

    1. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on
    the highway. (we all know this one's true)
    2. "Vacation" means going to Barrie for the weekend.
    3. You measure distance in hours.
    4. You know several people who have hit deer more than once.
    5. You often have to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
    6. You use a down comforter in the summer.
    7. Your grandparents drive at 65 mph through 13 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching.
    8. You see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.
    9. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
    10. You think of the major food groups as deer meat, fish and berries.
    11. You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them. (Guilty.. I've known how since I was 16)
    12. There are 7 empty cars running in the parking lot at the Canadian Tire store at any given time.
    13. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
    14. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
    15. You think lingerie is tube socks and flannel pajamas.
    16. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter,
    construction.
    17. It takes 3 hours to go to the store for one item even when you're in a rush because you have to stop and talk to everyone in town.
    18. You actually understand these jokes and forward them to all your friends from Ontario.

    I had a friend of mine from Canada visiting me in Sweden this summer, and he said it looked just like *home* (he's from Alberta).
    Re. the snow.., yeah.... doesn't everyone??! And re. deer - that's the reason why you have an axe in your car!! (Or so I was told by my ex bf.)

    Sounds like some of the same things from Arkansas and Oklahoma.. see below


    Things I Have Learned About Oklahoma and Arkansas Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
    There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
    There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Oklahoma or Arkansas plus a couple no one's seen before.
    Possums will eat anything.
    Armadillos love to dig holes under tomato plants.
    Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they are
    ripe.
    If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.
    A tractor is NOT an all-terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.
    Onced and Twiced are words.
    It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy.
    Fire ants consider your flesh a picnic.
    Coldbeer is one word.
    People actually grow and eat okra.
    A tank is a dirt hole in the ground that holds water for irrigation,
    watterin' the cows, or swimming.
    There ain't no such thing as "lunch". There's dinner and then supper.
    Tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're 2.
    Backwards and forwards means I know everything about you.
    "Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"
    You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is.
    You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.
    Darn near everyone knows 5 or more cloud types

    You know you're from Arkansas if:
    1. You measure distance in minutes.
    2. You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
    3. Stores don't have bags; they have sacks.
    4. You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in
    it, no matter what time of the year.
    5. You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to go to the store.
    6. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable,
    grain, insect or animal.
    7. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both
    unlocked.
    8. You carry jumper cables in your car ... for your OWN car.
    9. You know what "cow tipping" is.
    10. You only own four spices: salt, pepper, ketchup, and Tabasco.
    11. The local papers covers national and international news on one page
    but requires 6 pages for local gossip and sports.
    12. You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
    13. You find 100 degrees F "a little warm."
    14. You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer,and
    Christmas.
    15. You know whether another Arkansasan is from east, west, north or south
    Arkansas as soon as they open their mouth.
    16. There is a Braums in every town with a population of 1000 or more.
    17. Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite past-time known as "goin wal-martin"
    or off to "Wally World."
    18. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chili
    weather.
    19. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop ... it's a Coke,
    regardless of brand or flavor. Example "What kinna coke you want?"

    You see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.
    You can also see people wearing hockey jerseys as formal attire... and getting away with it.

    It takes more than a mere blizzard to tame the allure of the Tim's Ice Cap.

    Great stuff! 70 is a cold snap - I wish...

    Every one knows you wear local town jerseys for everyday and The" big teams" for formal according to what area they are from. For example Both Ducky and I have a choice. Ducky can wear Oilers or Flames and I can wear Leafs or Sens .
