Remember all those “you might be a redneck jokes”? Well it seems over time everyone has come up with some type of version of this, so I was sitting here thinking about Michigan, as in “you know you’re from Michigan if”. So here are some I thought I would share in no particular order.

You Know You’re From Grand Rapids When …

…The Home Depot you go to on any Saturday is busier than toy stores at Christmas….

…You learn to drive a boat before you learn to ride a bike.

…. The “Big Three” means either Ford, Chrysler and GM, or Little Caesar’s, Domino’s, or Hungry Howie’s.

….. You have experienced frostbite and sunburn in the same week.

….  When you cant go to a concert at the Van Andel Arena without being told you will go to hell by a protester.

…. When half the change in your pocket is Canadian….eh?

…. When you think of the 4 major food groups as beef, pork, BBQ sauce, and beer.

…. You understand that when visiting Detroit, the best thing to wear is a Kevlar vest.

….  You explain where you’re from by pointing at the palm of your hand.

….  You understand what it means to use a CD case as an ice scraper.

…. You see four and a half dead deer on the side of the road in a 90 mile stretch of highway…  In June.

…. If you call Colorado, CalorAAAdo.

…. When the trunk of your car doubles as a deep freezer.

…. You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie with only 8 buttons.

…. You know how to pronounce “Mackinac.”

….You know the dollar value of a grocery bag filled with empty pop cans.

…. You understand why someone would bring an octopus to a hockey game.

…. Traveling coast-to-coast means driving from Port Huron to Muskegon.

…. When at least 1 member of your family disowns you the week of the Michigan/Michigan State game.

…. When you actually understand everything i just said

I am sure you will agree or disagree but feel free to comment and add your own, and have fun with it.
