You've lived in Pennsylvania too long when:

       1.  "Hey youz guyz" is your standard greeting, and its
politically correct for all sexes.

       2.  The first day of Buck season and the first day of Doe
season are school holidays.

       3.   One of the highlights of your life was a field trip to
Penn's cave and Horseshoe curve.

       4.  You know exactly what to do when your mother tells you
to "red up" your room.

       5.  You know the time and location of every "wing night" in
a 20 mile radius

       6.  You don't think people from Philly or Pittsburgh talk

       7.  You don't understand what all the hype is about for
Yeungling or Rolling Rock beer, you've been drinking it for years even
though Iron City is cheaper.

       8.  You consider an exotic vacation a trip to the Jersey

       9 .  You are over 35 yrs. old, have never been outside of
Pennsylvania and don't see any need to leave.

       10.  You own only three spices "salt, pepper and Heinz

       11.  You design your children's Halloween costumes to fit
over a snow suit.

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

       13.  You find 20 degrees just a little chilly.

       14.  You can recite the four seasons: almost winter, winter,
still winter and construction.

       15.  Words like "hoagie", "sub", "chipped ham", and "pop"
actually mean something to you.

       16.  You can use the phrase "fire hall wedding reception"
and not even bat an eye.

   17.  You think very little of an Amish buggy on the road.

       18.  You learned long ago how to "step carefully" around the
buggy tie-ups in the supermarket parking lot.

       19.  You constantly refer to Pennsylvania as "PA"
(pronounced Pee-ay).  How many other states do that?

       20.  You can go 2 weeks in winter without sunshine and think
this is normal.

       21.  You know that  Intercourse, Climax,
Bird-in-Hand, Virginville, Paradise, Mars, and Slippery Rock are PA towns.

       22.  There is no such thing as a "Philly Cheesesteak". Its
just called a Cheesesteak since everybody knows where they come from.

23. You know what gumbands are

       24.  You actually understood all these jokes and are now
forwarding them to your PA friends

So youz guyz, lets red up, grab a pop and watch those Stillers soon in Blitzburgh!!!!!
