Where the wind comes drivin' down the plains!
This is really funny, and most of it applies to Texas too. :-)
These really sum up Oklahoma....love it or leave it we are who we are.
This is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from Oklahoma :
If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and
they don't work there, you may live in Oklahoma
If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
you may live in Oklahoma
If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with
someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Oklahoma
If 'vacation' mean`s going anywhere south of Dallas for
the weekend, you may live in Oklahoma
If you measure distance in hours, you may live in
If you say Fixin to, a walla go and ya'll because you heard
it from the teacher in school you may live in Oklahoma .
If you know several people who have hit a deer more
than once, you may live in Oklahoma
If you install security lights on your house and garage,
but leave both unlocked, you may live in Oklahoma
If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife
knows how to use them, you may live in Oklahoma
If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're
going 80 and everybody is passing you, you may live
If you find 60 degrees 'a little chilly,' you may live
If you see a tornado warning on the television but
don't get too awfully excited about it until you actually
SEE it coming toward you, you may live in Oklahoma
We're friendly people, Thats a hard concept for many people in other parts of the country!
Rules of Oklahoma :
Pull up your droopy pants. You look like an idiot.
The bill on your cap is to keep the sun off of your face
not the back of your head and neck.
Let's get this straight; it's called a 'gravel
I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how
slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus.
Drive it or get out of the way.
They are cattle. That's what they smell like to you.
They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don't like it?
I-40 goes east and west, & I-35 goes north and south.
So every person in every pickup waves. It's called
being friendly. Try to understand the concept.
If that cell phone rings while a bunch of ducks are
coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better
hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.
Yeah, we eat catfish. You really want
sushi & caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.
We open doors for women. That is applied to ALL Women, regardless of age.
No, there's no 'vegetarian special' on the menu.
Order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick
off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.
When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes:
meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt,
pepper, and Picante Sauce!!
College and high school football & basketball
is important here and fun to watch.
Yeah, we have golf courses,and we like to play, But don't hit the
water hazards -- it spooks the fish.
Colleges? Try Oklahoma State University, Tulsa University & Oklahoma University. They come out of there with an education plus a love for God and country,and many go on to serve our country in abroad and in Washington D.C. and they still wave at passing pickups when they come for the holidays.
We have lots of folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force,
and Marines, so 'Don't Mess with Oklahoma ' If you do,
you will get whipped by the best.
