    Most of these apply to my side of PA, I have discovered from living in Western PA, that this is a whole different state over here :D

    1 You've never referred to Philadelphia as anything but "Philly." And New Jersey has always been "Jersey."
    2 You want olive oil, not mayonnaise on your "hoagie".(can't do this at most places cause they soak the roll too much and it gets soggy :mad: )
    3 You know how to spell Schuylkill.
    4 You don't think Wawa sounds funny.
    5 You snub a cheese steak that isn't on an Amoroso roll.
    6 You can't imagine lunch without a Tastycake.
    7 You can make a cheese steak and you've never been taught
    8 You can't imagine a breakfast without scrapple.
    9 You don't know what a sub is, but you think they are trying to describe an imitation HOAGIE.
    10 You refer to Pennsylvania as "PA."
    11 You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre, Schuylkill, Bala Cynwyd, Duquesne, New Tripoli, Tunkhannock, Punxsutawney, Tamaqua, Susquehanna, Allegheny, and Monongahela.
    12 The first day of buck and the first day of doe season are school holidays.
    13 You know what a "State Store" is, and your out of state friends find it incredulous that you can't purchase liquor at the mini-mart.
    14 You own only three condiments "A-1, Heinz 57 and Heinz ketchup". (I have mustard too....)
    15 Words like "hoagie", "crick", "chipped ham", "sticky buns", "shoo-fly pie", "pierogies" and "pocketbook" actually mean something to you.
    16 You know several places to purchase or that serve Scrapple, Summer Sausage (Lebanon Bologna), and Hot Bacon Dressing
    17 There is no such thing as a "Philly Cheesesteak". It's just called a "Cheesesteak."
    18 You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know that it comes in several colors: Red, Blue, White, Brown, Gold.
    19 You ask the waitress for "dippy eggs" for breakfast.
    20 You consider Pittsburgh to be "out west," and you know the fastest way to Philly is the Turnpike. (applies to me BIG time, I tell people back home I live "out west".)
    21 Know that Yuengling is pronounced "Ying-ling," and believe that it really is a premium beer sorry that one is just too important...
    22 You live within two miles of a plant that makes potato chips, corn chips, pretzels, candy, or ice cream, or that packages turkeys, beans, or bologna.
    23 You can stop along the road to buy fruits, vegetables, or crafts on the "honor system."
    24 You think the roads in any other state are smooth.
    25 You say the correct pronunciation LANG-kist-er instead of the mispronounced Lan-CAST-er, and LEB-en-in instead of the equally incorrect Leb-a-NON.

    I don't care how long I've lived here, they may say it "Byooona" but they're still wrong dammit, it's "Bwayna". :haha:


    And I've called my Texas friends to inform them I am pissing into their watershed as I speak.
