    YOU KNOW YOU\'RE AN OKIE WHEN

    (Every Okie should review this annually, I think....)

    1. It doesn't bother you one bit to use airports named for 2 men who died in the same grisly plane
    crash.

    2. You can properly pronounce all of the following, and without laughing: Eufaula, Pushmataha,
    Okemah, Tishomingo, and Chickasha.

    3. You know that the true value of a parking space is determined not by the distance to the door,
    but rather by the availability of shade.

    4. You readily understand the difference between 3.2 and 6.0 beer, and know what a "beer run" to
    another state is.

    5. A tornado warning siren is not necessarily cause for alarm. (It's usually just your signal to
    go out in the yard and look for the funnel. Fun for the whole family.)

    6. You are 100% Okie if you've ever had this conversation with a friend:
    "Y'all wanna Coke?" "Sure." "What kind ya want?" "Dr. Pepper,"

    7. You've used at least 4 of the following 8 words/expressions in daily conversation: "reckon";
    "plumb" (e.g., "plumb stove up," "plumb fed up,"
    "plumb sick and tired," etc.); "Howdy"; "I swan" (in lieu of "I swear"); "fixin' to"; "See y'all
    later" (alt., "Y'all behave yourselves!"); "gol-durn"; "jing-dang-it"

    8. You understand at least 5 of the 10 following concepts and expressions: dry county; The B.C.
    Clark Christmas jingle; "Once saved, always saved."; "Useful as tits on a boar hog."; "Go
    Sooners!";"Shoot far (fire) and save the matches!"; liquor-by-the-drink; Vacation Bible School;
    peppered cream gravy on everything, please, Ma'am; "Just open all the windows and git in the
    bathtub."

    9. You know how to identify at least 5 varieties of venomous snakes on sight.

    10. You understand that Oklahoma is a Southern, Southwestern, and Midwestern state-all at once and
    this is not a contradiction in your mind.

    11. The local paper quickly covers national and international headlines on the front page, but
    requires 6 pages for sports and 2 pages for local church news.

    12. You know more than 1 woman who has used an O.U. football schedule to plan her wedding date.

    13. You don't find it in the least bit odd to see "chicken fried chicken" on a menu

    14. You know the difference between "Durant" and "Doo-rant," and you also know which state has a
    "My-am-muh," and which has a "My-am-ee." (Miami)

    15. You remember the profligate wealth of the Oil Boom, and you fervently pray for those days to
    return.

    16. A BMW is not nearly the status symbol that a Ford F150 4x4 is.

    17. You don't find it in the least bit odd to find video rentals, ammunition, and live bait all in
    the same convenience store.

    18. You know all 4 seasons by heart: Tornado, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas

    19. You know exactly what calf fries are, and you eat them anyway.

    20. You can't always remember which year your sweet Mama was born, but you can rattle off the years
    of all the "terrible hot" summers in your lifetime lickety-split.

    You forgot;

    21. Have a second rate football team full of crackheads and thugs, and aspire to the level of greatness the Huskers have standardized for college football. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I had to throw something else besides the 'crackheads and thugs' in there...you know, to seperate the Huskers from the Sooners. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
