Favorite Rural/Small Town, Regional/State Humor

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I thought it would be fun if folks could post their favorite rural/small town, regional/state humor in this thread.

Please post your examples or comments about favorite lines from any examples in this thread. Many of these examples can be forwarded to your friends from any state/university by just changing the names of the local towns/neighboring states, local drinks/food and local teams.

I have heard trekchick's Yoopers post variously ascribed to Yoopers, Minnesotans, North Dakotans and Norwegians. Here is one translation of the Yoopers post plus a few others.


Ven Two Yoopers Meet Oop Nort On Da Lake Fichen! = When Two Michigan Upper Peninsula People Meet Up North on the Lake Fishing!

"Benearlong?" = Have you been here long?
"Coplhours." = A couple of hours.
"Crieps, cetchenenny?" = Cripes, are you catching any (fish)?
"Yepgoddafew" = Yes, I got a few.
"Vairdaybitn?" = Where have they been biting?
"Oberdair" = Over there. (which is probably a misdirection as a true fisherman never reveals the good spots)
"Kindarday?" = What kind (of fish) are they?
"Valleyeennordern." = Walleyes and northerns.

"Cuplapowns." = A couple of pounds.

"Vahchayoozin? Dalindyrik?" = What are you using (to catch the fish)? The Lindy Rig? www.lindylittlejoe.com
"Ohyeahdonchano." = Oh yes, don't you know.
"Fichenondaboddum?" = Fishing on the bottom?
"Rydoopneardaboddum." = Right up near the bottom.
"Howdeeperya?" = How deep are you?
"Bouttvenyfeet." = About twenty feet.
"Oh, Vachadrinkin?" = Oh, what are you drinking?
"Hadacouplabeers." = I had a couple of beers.
"Velligoddago." = Well, I have got to go.
"Tubad." = Too bad.
"Seeyaround." = See you around.
"Yeahtakideeze, yano?" = Yes, take it easy, you know?
"Guluk." = Good luck
"Yoobetcha." = You bet.

The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had
"covertly" funded a project with the U.S. automakers for the past 5
years, whereby the automakers were installing black-box voice recorders in 4 wheel drive pickup trucks and SUV's in an effort to determine in
fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the

They were surprised to find in 48 of the 50 states the recorded last
words of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh Sh*t !"

Only Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were different, where
89.3 percent of the final words were: "Hold my beer, I'm gonna try

TrekChick - That's the spirit.

I had forgotten about the "Hold my beer, I'm gonna try something" joke.

I have heard this joke ascribed to a variety of places & people in addition to Wisconsin & the Upper Peninsula of Michigan: Southern states; upstate section of Vermont (specifically Island Pond, Hardwick and Barton); upstate section of NY (specifically Potsdam, Canton, Colton and Massena); Ottawa Valley in Canada (only the places like Clayton, Almonte, Carleton Place, Corkery, Carp, Pakenham and Arnprior); individual states or groups of these states (Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, West Virginia, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota); and rednecks.

Mapnut - Porkies or Porcupines is a local nickname for the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Ontonagon, MI www.ontonagon.net/porkies/ski/ that claims the highest vertical drop in Wisconsin and Michigan - a whopping 641' vertical drop. This probably was true for decades until 2000 when Mt Bohemia www.mtbohemia.com in Lac La Bell, MI opened with a 900' vertical drop. Also, in 2001 Granite Peak www.skigranitepeak.com (originally Rib Mountain) in Wausau, WI opened new runs to go from 624' to 700' vertical drop.

Porkies for Yoopers is similar to New Yorkers calling Hunter Mountain "Huntah".

Thursday Humor (TH)-You May Be In The Midwest (Or Any Rural Area) If...


Those raised on the Coasts sometimes accidentally find themselves actually inside Midwest states. The Tourism Councils of those states have developed the following information to help these outsiders understand the Midwest.

The farm boy standing beside that feed bin burned more calories before breakfast this morning than you did at the gym all last week.

Any references to "corn-fed" when talking about our women will get you whipped... by our women.

Get this straight: we have one stoplight in town. We stop when it's red. Sometimes we even stop when it's yellow.

Yeah, every person in every pickup waves. It's called "being friendly." Get it?

This is called a "gravel road." No matter how slow you drive, your Navigator is going to get dusty. We buy four-wheel drives because we need it. Drive it or park it on the blacktop.

Nope, there's nothing "Vegetarian" on the menu. Order steak. Rare. Or, order the Chef's Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham and turkey.

Yeah, we eat catfish. And carp, too. And turtle. You want sushi and caviar? It's sold at The Bait Shop.

The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday. You can get breakfast at the church.

We've all been hunting and fishing since we were seven years old. Yes, we saw Bambi. We got over it. You should too.

If that cell phone rings while a bunch of mallards are making their final approach, we will shoot it. Better hope it's not in your shirt pocket at the time.

Sure; go ahead; use that $600 Orvis Fly Rod. Just don't whine when a flathead catfish breaks it off at the handle. We have a name for those little trout you like to fish for: bait.

Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.

Yep, whiskey costs two bucks. We buy a fifth for what you paid in the airport for a shot.

You may bring Coke into my house but it had better be capitalized and liquid.

We're not impressed when you brag about your sixty thousand-dollar car that you drive only on weekends. We have quarter-million-dollar combines that we only use two weeks a year.

Our women hunt, fish, and drive trucks-because they want to. You're a feminist? Cute.

They're pigs. That's how a pig smells. Get over it.

We have golf courses; just don't hit your ball into a water hazard. It spooks the fish.

That Highway Patrol Officer that just pulled you over for driving like an idiot ... his name is, "Sir" ... no matter how old he is.

Don't like any of this? Interstates 70, 80 & 90 all go two ways and Interstates 29 & 35 go the other two. Pick one and use it accordingly.


You can name everyone you graduated with.

You get a whiff of manure and think of home.

You know what 4-H is.

You ever went to "headlight parties".

You used to drag "main".

You said the 'F' word and your parents knew within the hour.

You schedule parties around the schedule of different police officers, since you know which ones will bust you and which ones won't.

You ever went cow-tipping.

You have ever partied with a guy who is 25, has no job, but is the 'buyer' for all of the best parties.

You have parties at the same guy's house.

Almost everyone in your school also has a cousin in your school.

School gets canceled for state sporting events.

The town's social events are their children's.

You could never buy cigarettes because all the store clerks knew how old you were (and if you were old enough they'd tell your parents anyway).

When you did find someone old enough and brave enough to buy smokes, you still had to go out to the county and drive on back roads to smoke them.

You were ever in the Homecoming parade.

No place sells gas on Sunday.

Friday night fun consisted of standing in line for the one screen theater to see a movie that came out six months ago.

It was cool to date someone from the neighboring town.

You had senior skip day.

You could recite the school colors and mascot of all schools in your conference.

Whenever you decided to walk to school for exercise, twenty cars pulled over and offered you a lift.

You could set your bookbag out in the hall at lunchtime and it would still be there when you came out of the cafeteria.

There were three generations of your family in the same bleacher row at every home game.

You know all the old veterans carrying the flags in the 4th of July parade.

You know everybody in the 4th of July parade.

Your only newspaper was a weekly.

The mini-mall you now shop at has more stores than your entire hometown.

Loitering wasn't a bad thing; it was the only thing.

You refer to THE stop light.

You don't give directions by street names or house numbers, but by references. ("Turn right by Harold's Hardware, go two blocks past Anderson's, and it's the fourth house on the left past the football field.)

You call lunch dinner and dinner supper.

You've never met any celebrities, but the mayor knows your name.

Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor.

You have had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" on the same day.

You end sentences with a preposition: "Where's my coat at?"

When asked how your trip was to any exotic place, you say, "It was different!"

For Yoopers:

You know it's pronounced pass-tee.

You know what FIBs, Fudgies, and Trolls are.

You've played broomball.

You know what a yooper scoop is.

You've ever driven your sled to the bar, and then, taking advantage of the time zone split, raced across the lake at closing to get into the central time... you know, to drink for another hour.

You know all the words to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."

You've come out of the closet at the Gay bar.

Your knowledge of the LP can be summed up on your palm.

You've ever made a beer run to WI.

You refer to the can deposit machine as the ATM.

You have two front doors: one on the first floor and one on the second.

You've ever played a real life game of Frogger on US-41 with passing logging on beer trucks.

The Vermonter travels to California to visit his displaced sister. While there the Vermonter spies a flowering plant of special interest and significant beauty.

Inquiring of his sister what type of plant it might be and by what name is it know, the sibling responds "Why, that is the Bird of Paradise"

The Vermonter in a deep and serious contemplation strokes his chin a moment and then makes a final inquiry.

"What is it doing so far from home"

I moved from Minnesota to Dallas when I was 18. A couple months after moving there, I got a job working on a ship out of Beaumont, TX. I decided to drive the back roads from Dallas to Beaumont on my way to this job, and on this drive passed through the small town of Mexia.

As a newbie to the Southwest I had no idea how to pronounce the name of this town... was it MECKS-ee-a or Muh-HEE-a? So I pulled into the local Dairy Queen, hoping to get some food and maybe a pronounciation lesson at the same time.

When I got to the counter, I ordered a burger, and asked the gal, "How do you pronounce the name of the place?" She looked at me strangely, and said very slowly, as if to a child, "Deh-ree Kween..."

I can't remember a time that I didn't have some Canadian $$$ in my sock drawer, from "change back" somewhere.

The first time I went to LasVegas, the woman at the casino wouldn't accept some change I had. I can still hear her saying, "That's forgien currency ma'am."
I said, "No it isn't, it's Canadian!"
