Bit@$, Please, I am from Louisiana


This is the group on Facebook that I just joined. Too funny not to share! I have bolded my thoughts beside each statement.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE FROM LOUISIANA WHEN...

In your car, you use the heater in the morning and the AC in the afternoon. So True!

ou greet people with "Howzyamomma'an'emdoin?" I'm afraid this is true.

You don't learn until high school that Mardi Gras is not a national holiday. It isn't?

You believe that purple, green and gold look good together. Of course, it does!

Your last name isn't pronounced the way it's spelled. This happens a lot! Try to pronouce Thibodeaux.

You know what a nutria rat is but you still pick it to represent your baseball team. Not in Northern Louisiana!

You can pronounce words like Ouachita, Natchitoches, Avoyelles, and Tchoupitoulas and you make fun of people from other states who say them wrong. Even I don't know the last two....ha-ha!

You pronounce the largest city in the state as "Nawlins." True

You know those big roaches can fly, but you're able to sleep at night anyway. I hate to admit, this is true!

You assume everyone has mosquito swarms in their backyard. Well, only if it backs up to a bayou.

You realize the rainforest is less humid than Louisiana. So, so true!

You discover that you can get a sunburn through your car window. I have!

When out of town, you stop and ask someone where there is a drive-through Daiquiri place, and they look at you like you have three heads. So true!

You have flood insurance. More than likely you do!

Your sunglasses fog up when you step outside. LOL - yep!

No matter where else you go in the world, you are always disappointed in the food. SO TRUE, especially Europe (with the exception of Germany.)

Your house payment is less than your air conditioning bill. Sad, but true!

Your grandparents are called "Maw Maw" and "Paw Paw." Yep!

You judge a po-boy by the number of napkins used. True

You actually know what a po-boy is. Sho (Southern for sure) do! Has nothing to do with money or a male.

You don't think it's odd to see live crickets or firearms being sold at a gas station. Hell no, that is not odd at all.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Louisiana.

I have no clue what some of these meant, though I do know what a Po-Boy is and only because Paula Deen made them on her show once.
