Jeff Foxworthy does Southern humor but he seemed to nail this one... Those of you in the PacNW will understand. Those in SoCal might scratch your heads a little. Yeah, I lived in Oregon for 35 years. :)
The Pacific Northwest According To Jeff Foxworthy:
1. You know the state flower? (Mildew). 2. You feel guilty throwing aluminum cans or paper in the trash 3. Use the statement "sun break" and know what it means. 4. You know more than 10 ways to order coffee 5. You know more people who own boats than air conditioners. 6. You feel overdressed wearing a suit to a nice restaurant or to church. 7. You stand on a deserted corner in the rain waiting for the "WALK" Signal. 8. You consider that if it has no snow, or has not recently erupted, it's not a real mountain. 9. You can taste the difference between Starbucks, Seattle's Best, and Veneto's. 10 . You know the difference between Chinook, Coho and Sockeye salmon. 11. You know how to pronounce Sequim, Puyallup, Haceta, Yaquina, Yachats, Issaquah, Oregon, Yakima and Willamette. 12. You consider swimming an indoor sport. 13. You can tell the difference between Japanese, Chinese and Thai food. 14. In winter, you go to work in the dark and come home in the dark, while only working eight-hour days. 15. You never go camping without waterproof matches and a poncho 16. You are not fazed by "Today's forecast: showers followed by rain," and "Tomorrow's forecast: rain followed by showers." 17. You have no concept of humidity without precipitation. 18. You know that Boring is a town in Oregon and not just a state of Mind. 19. You can point to at least two volcanoes, even if you cannot see through the cloud cover. 20. You notice, "The mountain is out when it is a pretty day and you can actually see it. 21. You put on your shorts when the temperature gets above 50, but still wear your hiking boots and parka. 22. You switch to your sandals when it gets about 60, but keep the socks on. 23. You have actually used your mountain bike on a mountain. 24. You think people who use umbrellas are either wimps or tourists. 25. You buy new sunglasses every year, because you cannot find the old ones after such a long time. 26. You measure distance in hours. 27. You often switch from "heat" to "a/c" in the same day. 28. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit under a raincoat. 29. You know all the important seasons: Almost Winter, winter, Still Raining (Spring), Road Construction (Summer), Deer & Elk season (Fall) 30. You understood these jokes and will probably forward them.

To be fair, a friend just sent this to me: The Pacific Southwest According To (I can't remember):
Your monthly house payments exceed your annual income.
You drive next to a Rolls Royce and don't notice.
You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?
You don't know anyone's phone number unless you check your cell phone.
You speak Spanish, but you're not Mexican.
You begin to "lie" to your friends about how close you are when you know that it'll take you at least an hour to get there (see below).
Getting anywhere from point A to point B, no matter what the distance, takes about "twenty minutes".
You drive to your neighborhood block party.
In the winter, you can go to the beach and ski at Big Bear on the same day.
You eat a different ethnic food for every meal.
If your destination is more than 5 minutes away on foot, you're definitely driving.
Calling your neighbors requires knowing their area code.
You know what In-N-Out is and feel bad for all the other states because they don't have any.
You don't stop at a STOP sign, you do a California roll.
You really can never be too rich or too thin or too tan. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?
You've partied in Tijuana at least 3 times. You don't remember any of them.
You go to a tanning salon before going to the beach.
You eat pineapple on pizza.
Your cell phone has left a permanent impression on the side of your head.
You think that Venice is a beach.
The waitress asks if you'd like "carbs" in your meal.
You know who the tinsel underwear dude in Venice Beach is.
You classify new people you meet by their Area Code. An "818" would never date a "562" and anyone from "323" or "213" is ghetto/second class. Best area code: "714, 949." Nobody likes anyone from the "909, 951" because it smells there.
You call 911 and they put you on hold. You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?
You have a gym membership because it's mandatory.
The gym is packed at 3pm, on a workday.
You think you are better than the people who live "Over the Hill." It doesn't matter on which side of the hill you are currently residing, you are just better than them, for whatever reason.
You know that if you drive two miles in any direction you will find a McDonald's or a Starbucks.
You know what "SigAlert", "PCH", and "The Five" mean.
You can't remember . . . is pot illegal?
It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a "STORM WATCH" report on every news station.
The Terminator is your governor. "Live well, laugh often, love much."

LOL I was born and grew up in the mid-west so I can relate to almost all of the "you know you're in Kansas if" lines. Then lived in Alaska for 21 years and now 7 in Wa. state so can relate to the NW ones, too. I got most of the NW town names right, still learning.. thanks for sharing those! ;)

We have enough YOUTH...how about a fountain of SMART

Sometimes, the only right answer is silence...which in and of itself speaks a thousand words.
