That was great

Morgan you really have this down pat... Since we live in California - we can vouch for that part being true...

We've been in our house 31 years or we wouldn't be able to afford it... We always tell distances by first seeing what time it is and then estimate time to go from point A to Point B.... (miles don't mean a thing - years ago, we use to get across town in 15 minutes - now it's 30 - 35 if you're lucky). And of course, cell phones are attached to everyone's ear... "don't leave home with out it".. A block or two from us is quite a walk - so yes we would drive to some of our neighbors...

That's California living....

You're from PA?

You Know You're From or In Pennsylvania If ...

You've never referred to Philadelphia as anything but "Philly." And New Jersey has always been "Jersey."

At least 2 people on your block have electric "candles" in all or most
of their windows all year long.
You know what a "Hex sign" is.
You know what a "State Store" is.
You know what a "hoagie" is.
Words like "crick", "chipped ham", "sticky buns", "shoo-fly pie",
"pierogies" and "pocketbook" actually mean something to you.
You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know it comes in several colors: Red, White, Brown, Gold.

You know several places to purchase or that serve Scrapple, ring
bologna, Lebanon Bologna, and Hot Bacon Dressing. You know what a Jumbo sub is, and it doesn't have anything to do with size.

You can eat a cold soft pretzel from a street vendor without fear and
enjoy it. You want your danish 'heated up'.
You know the difference between a cheese steak & a pizza steak
sandwich, and know that you can't get a really good one outside PA.
You know that Blue Ball, Intercourse, Climax, Bird-in-Hand, Beaver,
Virginville, Paradise, Mars, and Slippery Rock are towns.

You know what a township, borough, and commonwealth is. (At least you vaguely remember.)

You've waited to pass a horse-drawn carriage on the highway in
Lancaster County.

You carry jumper ! cables i n your car and your female passengers know how to use them.

Your graduating class consisted of mostly Polish, German, & Italian

"You guys" is a perfectly acceptable reference to a group of men &

You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre, Schuylkill, Bala
Cynwyd,Conshohocken, and Monongahela.

You know what a "Mummer" is, and are disappointed if you can't catch at least highlights of the parade.

You actually understand these jokes and don't think there is anything funny or odd about them, and send them on to other
Pennsylvanians :wave

These were jokes?

I've only lived live in Penn's Woods for 34 years so I have either not been here long enough-- or TOO long!

My dad is from Pittsburgh and I have family in Gettysburg. A friend from Butler sent it to me and I knew everyone of them - and didn't think it was any kind of joke. It's all TRUE :)
