For all of you that are not from Alabama, here's what we Alabamians are like. I thought this was funny. If you have any questions, I'll be free to answer them.

21 Ways to determine if you are a real Alabamian1. You can properly pronounce Arab, Cahaba, Opelika , Sylacauga, Oneonta, Eufaula, and Wedowee.2. You think people who complain about the heat in their states are sissies.3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard and look for a funnel. 4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but by the availability of shade. 5. Stores don't have bags or shopping carts, they have sacks and buggies. 6. You've seen people wear bib overalls at funerals. 7. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.8. You measure distance in minutes. (It's about 5 minutes down the road)9. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to the ocean. 10. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an outfit. 11. You know cow pies are not made of beef. 12. Someone you know has used a football schedule to plan their wedding date. 13. You have known someone who has a belt buckle bigger than your fist. 14. You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, beer, and bait all in the same store.15. A Mercedes Benz isn't a status symbol. A Ford F-350 4x4 Extended Bed Crew Cab dually is.16. You know everything goes better with Ranch Dressing, or Ketchup.17. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how to multiply.18. You actually get these jokes and are "fixing to send them to your friends.19. You have used your heater and air-conditioner in the same day. 20. The ladies church auxiliary is going to “throw a shower” for your new baby.21. Finally for good measure: You are 100% Alabamian if you have ever had this conversation: "You wanna coke?" "Yeah. What kind?" "Dr Pepper."

Happy Easter everyone.

Too cute! And almost everyone I know has planned their wedding around an SEC football schedule. And when some non SEC bride has a wedding on a big football weekend. everyone gasps at her audacity to have her wedding on such an important weekend.
