Having lived in MN for a short period of time in 1969 these took me back. :D

Jeff Foxworthy on Minnesota

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through l8
inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by,
you might live in Minnesota.

If you're proud that your state makes the national news 96 nights
each year because International Falls is the coldest spot in the nation,
you might live in Minnesota.

If you have ever refused to buy something because it's "too spendy",
you might live in Minnesota.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March,
you might live in Minnesota.

If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don't work there,
you might live in Minnesota.

If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead,
you might live in Minnesota.

If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
you might live in Minnesota

If your town has an equal number of bars and churches,
you might live in Minnesota.

If you know how to say Wayzata, Mahtomedi, Edina and Shakopee,
you might live in Minnesota.

"Vacation" means going up north past Brainerd for the weekend.

You measure distance in hours.

You know several people who have hit deer more than once.

You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day and back again.

You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.

You see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.

You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

You think of the major food groups as beer, fish, and venison.

You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.

There are 7 empty cars running in the parking lot at Mill's Fleet Farm at any given time.

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.

You can identify a southern or eastern accent.

You consider Minneapolis exotic.

Your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of a deer next to your blue spruce.

Down South to you means Iowa.

A brat is something you eat.

You go out to fish fry every Friday.

You find 0 degrees "a little chilly."

You actually understand these jokes, and you forward them to all your Minnesota friends.

Every year this one kid on my school bus would rock some Zuba shorts and his starter jacket in the middle of January :scratch:

That is simply perfect. (I also did understand them and forward them. Plus, living north of Brainerd I guess I'm already on vacation!!!)

Wasn't this already posted a few months ago...I'm pretty sure that I printed it out to give to my fiancee (who is from Minnesota)...still funny, though!

I have only been a member here since the end of July so it might have been posted before then. Also, I forget that there are other forums on the message board here. Maybe this should have been in the clubhouse forum. My bad.

Just to add a couple to the list. :)

You might be from MN if you went to see the movie "The Color Purple" thinking it was about Bud Grant.

If you own a hat with horns and braids attached.
