Dang Mike, that's got to be an old one.
Here's a little story about Tonto and the Lone Ranger. They're out on the range, Lone Ranger tells Tonto he's getting hungry.
Tonto looks at Lone Ranger, puts his ear to the ground and says "buffalo come".
Lone Ranger in astonishment says "thats amazing, how do you know that?"
Tonto: Sticky, sticky

Default You're from Colorado if...

A winter statistic:
98% OF AMERICANS SCREAM BEFORE GOING IN THE DITCH ON A SLIPPERY ROAD.

THE OTHER 2% ARE FROM COLORADO AND THEY SAY, "HOLD MY
BEER AND WATCH THIS."

***********************************
Now, you're from Colorado if.........

You eat ice cream in the winter.

It snows 5 inches and you don't expect school to be cancelled.


You live above 10,000 feet--sometimes Summer comes on Sunday and you can go fishing!


You'll wear flip flops every day of the year,
regardless of temperature.


You have no accent at all, but can hear other people's.
And then you make fun of them.


"Humid" is over 25%.


Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and
Away from the mountains.


You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard.


You buy your flowers to set out on Mother's day, but try and
hold off planting them until just before Father's day.


You grew up planning your Halloween costumes around your coat.


You know what the Continental Divide is.


You don't think Coors beer is that big a deal.


You've gone off-roading in a vehicle that was
never intended for such activities.


You always know the elevation of where you are.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day
and you wonder if it's gonna snow later.



You don't care that some company renamed it,
the Broncos still play at Mile High Stadium!!!


Every movie theater has military and student discounts.


You actually know that ** South Park ** is a real place,
not just a dumb show on TV.



You know what a 'trust fund hippy' is, and you
know its natural habitat is Boulder .



You know you're talking to a fellow Coloradan when
they call it "Elitches," not ""Six Flags."



A bear on your front porch doesn't bother you.



Your two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever
is beating the crap out of the Raiders.



When people back East tell you they have mountains
in their state too, you just laugh.



You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels "sticky" andyou notice the sky is no longer blue.

I heard another one that is funny...

When someone says "the interstate" you know exactly what highway they are talking about.
