We need some fun here!

You've signed so many recall petitions that you can't remember the name of the current gubernatorial incumbent.
You notice that your car is overheating --- and you haven't started it yet.
You can say Hohokam and no one thinks you're making it up.
You no longer associate rivers or bridges with water.
You know that a "swamp cooler" is not a happy hour drink.
You can contemplate a high temperature of 120 degrees as "not all that bad, after all it's a dry heat."
You can go from the dead of winter to summer in a 4 hour drive.
You go to a fake beach to ride fake waves and call it surfing without cracking a smile.
You have learned to expertly maneuver your vehicle under any traffic conditions using only two fingers; a skill usually learned initially in July.
You know that you can make sun tea outside faster than instant tea in your microwave.
You have to run your air conditioner in the middle of winter so that you can use your fireplace.
You notice that your idea of the "best" parking place is determined more by shade than by distance.
The water coming from the "cold" tap is hotter than that from the hot" tap.
You can correctly pronounce the following words: "Saguaro", "Tempe", "Gila Bend", "San Xavier del Bac", "Canyon de Chelly", "Mogollon Rim", "Cholla", and "Tlaquepacque".
It's noon on a weekday in July, kids are on summer vacation, and not one single person is moving on the streets.
You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
Sunscreen is sold year 'round, is kept at the front of the checkout counter, a formula less than SPF 30 is a source of humor amongst shoppers waiting in line, and you apply it just to go to Circle K.
You think that Circle K signs are the state tree. (that was new to me and my personal favorite today )
It does not seem unusual to you that someone would develop and market a personal misting system for joggers --- or that joggers would actually buy them.
Hot air balloons can't fly because the air outside is hotter than the air inside.
Having your car reupholstered in vinyl is legal basis for conducting a sanity hearing.
You can understand the reason for a town being named "Why".

People: You might be from Arizona if.... (broken link)

Here's another version: You Know You're From Arizona If...

Well, out-of-staters/wanna-be Arizonans , a joke is a joke, but as you know there's no smoke without fire...

Disclaimer: AZ lovers, don't shoot me. You know there are such lists for all states and countries.

It is HOT. Forget dry heat. I come from humid heat, and I thought Miami was bad, but Arizona's definitely worse.

Amazingly enough, a few were new to me, too. We've gotta come up with more original stuff!

I had a less known fun on our Tucson forum, but it's Tucson-specific : Oh ye, dear Tucson!

Bummer, you and I waste enough time on these forums. Let's scratch our heads a little bit and try to add to the lists!

Default my addition

I hated when people said, " Yes it's hot, but it's a dry heat"

My favorite comeback was ...

"Ya, but so is your oven ... preheat that to 115, stick your head for awhile and see how good it feels. It's a dry heat, too"

But it IS!

Really, I'll take 115 and single-digit humidity any day over 80-90 and 90% humidity. And I'm NOT an AZ fan.
