This was on a friend’s Facebook page and I just had to copy and share!
You know you're from Alabama when:
-You have a party or a barbeque when Alabama plays Auburn in football.
-You go to Gulf Shores every summer.
-You call the Atlanta Braves baseball team “us” like they’re actually from Alabama.
-You have family who would much rather visit Florida than California.
-You don’t “take”, you “carry” or “tote”… as in “You want me to carry you down to the 7-11?”
-A soft drink isn’t soda, cola, or pop, it’s Coke.
-You call it a “buggy” and not a shopping cart.
-You’ve said “fixin’ to,” “might could,” or “usetacould” during the last week.
-Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date.
-You can properly pronounce Arab, Eufaula, Opelika, Loachapoka, Bayou La Batre, and Oneonta.
-You know exactly what chitlins and mountain oysters are, and though you may not, you know someone who eats them anyway.
-You think that people who complain about the heat and humidity in other states are sissies.
-You aren’t surprised to find rental movies, groceries, ammunition and bait all in the same store.
-Asian food is always “CHINESE” regardless of the fact that it may actually be Korean or Japanese or Thai.
-People actually grow, eat, and like okra.
-Mamanem means the whole family. (“Are mamanem comin?”)
-You measure distance in minutes or hours.
-You’ve ever had to switch from “heat” to “A/C” in the same day.
-You know what “cow tipping” is.
-You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still
summer, and Christmas.
-You know whether another Alabamian is from east, west, or middle Alabama as soon as they open their mouth.
-Visiting Wal-Mart is a favorite pastime.
-You know the difference between redneck, hillbilly, and southerner.
-You think everybody from the north has an accent.
-Y’all is a word.
-There is no such thing as tea.. it’s sweet tea.
-If a single snowflake falls, the town is paralyzed for three days, and it’s on all the channels as a news flash every 15 minutes for a week. All grocery stores will be sold out of milk, bread, bottled water, toilet paper, and beer. If there is a remote chance of snow, all schools will close.
-Your directions include “when you see the Waffle House” or “turn on the dirt road.”
-You say “sir” and “ma’am” if there’s even a chance someone is even thirty seconds older than you and it is just the polite thing to do.
-The falling of one rain drop causes all drivers to immediately forget all traffic rules; so will daylight savings time, a girl applying eye shadow in the next car, or a flat tire three lanes over.
-There is nothing but country, gospel, or classic rock on the radio.
-A tornado warning siren or sever thunder storm is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel.
-Almost everyone you know is Baptist or Methodist.
-A Mercedes Benz isn’t a status symbol. A Chevy Silverado Extended Bed Crew Cab is.

-Krispy Kreme doughnuts are the only doughnuts that exist.
-You know at least one Bubba, and maybe a few guys named Bo.

You actually get these jokes and your friends do too
And as we like to say here in the South: “American By Birth, Southern By The Grace of God!”
