I snatched this off a friend's blog, I just couldn't pass it up:

FORGET REDNECKS...Here's what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about New Englanders!
If you can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you might live in New England.

  • If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you might live in New England.
  • If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping it will swim by, you might live in New England.
  • If you're proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights each year because Mt. Washington is the coldest spot in the nation and Boston gets more snow than any other major city in the U.S., you might live in New England.
  • If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you might live in New England.
  • If you instinctively walk like a penguin for six months out of the year, you might live in New England.
  • If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance, and they don't work there, you might live in New England.
  • If you've ever had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed the wrong number, you might live in New England.
  • know you're a New Englander when "Vacation" means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend.

Other hints...

  • You measure distance in hours
  • You know several people who have hit a deer more than once.
  • You have switched from "Heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.
  • You install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked.
  • You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend/wife knows how to use them.
  • You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snow suit.
  • The speed limit on the highway is 55 mph but you're going 80 and everyone is still passing you!
  • Driving is better in the winter because all the potholes are filled with snow.
  • You know all four seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction.
  • Your 4th of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost.
  • You have more miles on your snow blower than on your car.
  • You find 10 degrees "a little chilly."

Wait, you get to keep the leg....?

Morning Edition, October 3, 2007 · A South Carolina man lost his leg three years ago in a plane crash. John Wood put his amputated leg in a barbecue smoker for safe keeping, and then put the whole thing in a storage unit. But when he fell behind on payments, the smoker was auctioned off with the leg inside. The new owner called police, but not until after he'd made a few bucks by charging people to take a look. A custody battle for the leg is underway.
