You may be from Ohio (pronounced O-hi-uh) if...

A celebration of what it's like to live or have lived in the Buckeye State:

  • You think all Pro football teams are supposed to wear orange!
  • You know all the 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, almost Winter, and Construction.
  • You live less than 30 miles from some college or university.
  • You know what a buckeye really is, and have a recipe for candy ones.
  • "Toward the lake" means "north" and "toward the river" means south."
  • You know if other Ohioians are from southern or Northern Ohio as soon as they open their mouths.
  • You can spell words like Cuyahoga, Olentangy, Bellefontaine, Tuscarawas, Wapakoneta and you know which letter is doubled in Cincinnati.
  • "Vacation" means spending a day at Cedar Point.
  • You measure distance in minutes.
  • Your school classes were canceled because of cold.
  • Your school classes were canceled because of heat.
  • You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
  • You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: "Where's my coat at?"
  • You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
  • You think of the major four food groups as beef, pork, beer, and Jell-O salad with marshmallows.
  • You carry jumper cables in your car.
  • You know what 'pop' is.
  • You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
  • Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.
  • You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightgown.
  • The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires 6 pages for sports.
  • You know which leaves make good toilet paper.
  • You actually get these jokes, then forward 'em to your OHIO friends.
