There's one of those "you know you're from/in" for PA. All I remember from it was: "You know you're in PA when the driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow".

I'm surprise no New Jersey jokes have started.. how refreshing.. so

You know you're from New Jersey when...

  • You don't think of fruit when people mention "The Oranges".
  • You know that it's called Great Adventure, not Six Flags.
  • A good, quick breakfast is a hard roll with butter.
  • You've known the way to Seaside Heights since you were seven.
  • You've eaten at a Diner, when you were stoned or drunk, at 3a.m.
  • You know that the state isn't one big oil refinery.
  • At least three people in your family still love Bruce Springsteen and you know the town Jon Bon Jovi is from.
  • You know what a "jug handle" is.
  • You know that WaWa is a convenience store.
  • You know that the state isn't all farmland.
  • You know that there are no "beaches" in New Jersey -there's the shore and you don't go to the shore, you go "down the Shore". And when you are there, you're not "at the shore", you are "down the Shore".
  • You know how to properly negotiate a Circle.
  • You knew that the last sentence had to do with driving.
  • You know that this is the only "New __" state that doesn't require "New" to identify it (like, try...Mexico,...York, .Hampshire - doesn't work, does it?)
  • You know that a "White Castle" is the name of BOTH a fast food chain AND a fast food sandwich.
  • You consider putting mayo on a corned beef sandwich a sacrilege.
  • You don't think "What exit?" is very funny.
  • You know that people from the 609 area code are "a little different". Yes they are!
  • You know that no respectable New Jerseyan goes to Princeton -that's for out-of-staters.
  • The Jets-Giants game has started fights at your school or localbar.
  • You live within 20 minutes of at least three different malls.
  • You refer to all highways and interstates by their numbers. (except for "the Parkway" and "the Turnpike")
  • Every year you have at least one kid in your class named Tony.
  • You know the location of every clip shown in the Sopranos opening credits.
  • You've gotten on the wrong highway trying to get out of the mall.
  • You know that people from North Jersey go to Seaside Heights, and people from Central Jersey go to Belmar and people from South Jersey go to Wildwood.
  • You weren't raised in New Jersey -- you were raised in either North Jersey, Central Jersey or South Jersey.
  • You don't consider Newark or Camden to actually be part of the state.
  • You remember the stores Korvette's, Two Guys, Rickel's, Channel, Bamberger's and Orbach's.
  • You also remember Palisades Amusement Park.
  • You've had a Boardwalk cheese steak and vinegar fries.
  • You start planning for Memorial Day weekend in February.
  • You've NEVER, NEVER pumped your own gas.
PS. I'm Jersey

You know you're from the Northeast when...
You live on a block with 100 kids and there are only 10 houses on your block.

You refer to two or more people as "yous guys" instead of "y'all".

You get freaked out when strangers in public talk to you.

The most used part of your car is the horn.

You think it's your God-given right to cut someone off in traffic.

You don't think you have an attitude.

Everything in town is "a five minute walk."

You believe using your turn signal is a sign of weakness.

You're anal, neurotic, pessimistic and stubborn.

You think if someone is nice to you, they must want something or are from out of town.

You almost feel disappointed if someone doesn't flip you the bird when you cut them off or steal their parking space.

Anyone you don't know is a potential idiot until proven otherwise.

You think the rest of the country owes you for Thanksgiving and Independence Day.

The TV weatherman is damn good if he's right 25% of the time.

You've slammed on your brakes to deter a tailgater.

Never ever stop for a pedestrian unless he flings himself under the wheels of your car.

Whenever possible, stop in the middle of a crosswalk to ensure inconveniencing as many pedestrians as possible. And if a pedestrian ahead of you steps into the road, speed up, honk or yell loudly and chase him back up on the curb. Pedestrians have no rights.

Always look both ways when running a red light.

Honk your horn the instant the light changes.

Never pass on the left when you can pass on the right.
