that's a riot.

LOL!!!
I don't know which is worse: that after having not lived there for over 20 years, I am reading this going "so that's why I do that" or that I was already copying it to send to my CO to CA transplant friends when I got to #51 "You actually understand these jokes and send them to your Colorado friends."

You don't want to know how long having the mountains to the east instead of to the west messed me up. :-)

Oh! And let up not forget the stampeding herds of Jackalopes...

All too true. I love it!

Of course, 49 and 50 should be reversed.
