THIS IS FLORIDA AND ONLY FLORIDANS KNOW THIS...

"Down South" means Key West

"Panhandling" means going to Pensacola.

You think no-one over 70 should be allowed to drive.

Flip-flops are everyday wear.

Shoes are for business meetings and church.

No, wait, flip flops are good for church too, unless
it's Easter or
Christmas.

Sweet tea can be served at any meal.

An alligator once walked through your neighborhood.

You smirk when a game show's "Grand Prize" is a trip
or cruise to Florida.

You measure distance in minutes.

You have a drawer full of bathing suits, and one
sweatshirt.

You get annoyed at the tourists who feed seagulls.

All the local festivals are named after a fruit.

A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.

You think everyone from a bigger city has a north! ern
accent.

You know the four seasons really are: almost summer,
summer,
not summer but really hot, and Christmas.

It's not soda, cola, or pop...its coke, regardless of
brand or flavor, "What kinda coke you want?"

Anything under 95 is just warm.

Anything under 70 is chilly.

You've hosted a hurricane party.

You go to a theme park for an afternoon, and know when
to get on the best rides.

You pass on the right and honk at the elderly.

You understand the futility of exterminating
cockroaches.

You can pronounce Okeechobee, Kissimmee,
Withlacoochee, Okahumpka and
Loxahatchee.

You understand why it's better to have a friend with a
boat, than have a boat yourself.

Bumper stickers on the pickup in front of you include:
various fish, NRA, and a confederate flag.

You were 8 before you realized they made houses
without pools.

You were 12 when you first met someone who cou! ldn'tswim.

You get angry when people say "Florida isn't really
part of the SOUTH"

You've worn shorts and used the A/C on Christmas.

You know what the "stingray shuffle" is, and why it's
important!

Socks are only for bowling

Orange juice from concentrate makes you vomit

Tap water makes you vomit

You never use an umbrella because you know the rain
will be over in
five minutes

A good parking place has nothing to do with distance
from the store,
but everything to do with shade.

Your winter coat is made of denim

You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and
mosquito bites

You're younger than thirty but some of your friends
are over 65

You've driven through Yeehaw Junction.

You could swim before you could read

You have to drive north to get to The South

You know that no other grocery store can compare to
Publix.

Every other house had blue! roofs in 2004-2005

You've gotten out of school early on Halloween to
trick or treat before it got dark

You know that anything under a Category 3 just isn't
worth waking up for.

You dread lovebug season.

You are on a first name basis with the Hurricane list.
They aren't Hurricane Charley, Hurricane Frances...but
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.

You know what a snowbird is and you hate them.

You know why flamingos are pink.

You think a six-foot alligator is actually pretty
average.

You were 12 before you ever saw snow or you still
haven't.

Repost if you're a Floridian!

After the hurricane blows your shingles off, you cover the roof with a blue plastic tarp.

***There ain't no such thing as a Floridan. Like CA, they moved there from somewhere else!***

"Down South" means Key West.

***Wrong! The SOUTH starts at the GA/FL and AL/FL lines!***

You think no-one over 70 should be allowed to drive.

***Yeah, but most of them 'retired' to NE GA. They've never seen a mountain or curve, which scares them so they drive slower than a snail! We call 'em FLORIDIOTS!***

Sweet tea can be served at any meal.

***You can't get sweet tea at a restaurant in FL. You have to go to GA or AL to find sweet tea. WHY? Yankees took over FL long ago!***

Bumper stickers on the pickup in front of you include:
various fish, NRA, and a confederate flag.

***But the pickup isn't from FL, it's from GA, AL, SC, or some other SOUTHERN STATE!***

You get angry when people say "Florida isn't really
part of the SOUTH"

***True, 'cause Yankee's moved to FL and took over!***

Tap water makes you vomit.

***How do ya'll make tap water? Hook up a water line to the sewer?***

You have to drive north to get to The South

***That's the truth. The SOUTH ends at the GA/FL and AL/FL lines!***
