Default You Know You're From Louisville, Kentucky If

You Know You're From Louisville (KY) If...

*

Your "International" airport has only one passenger flight that actually leaves the 48 contiguous U.S. states.
*

The in-state sports rivalry is paid more attention to than the national championship.
*

You live in an area that occasionally gets considerable snowfalls, floods, and tornadoes ... but has no capacity to deal with any of the above.
*

You pronounce the name of your city different than anyone else you've heard.
*

You think the rest of the people in Kentucky sound like hicks.
*

When you think "Kentucky" you don't automatically think horse racing or fried chicken.
*

You ask your doctor for an allergy cure and he tells you to "move."
*

You've shoveled 10+ inches of snow and worn shorts in the same week.
*

When people ask what school you went to, they don't mean Vanderbilt, Yale, or Harvard; they mean Ballard, Male, Manual, Trinity or St. X.
*

You know what the Bambi Walk is.
*

Your last ten vacations were in Panama City or Destin.
*

You make an emergency run to Kroger for bread and milk at the first sighting of a snowflake.
*

You've lived here for years, yet somehow you get hopelessly lost each time you attempt a shortcut through Cherokee Park.
*

You're convinced turn signals are useless options on a vehicle.
*

You hold up traffic to let a motorist you don't know into your lane.
*

You give directions based on landmarks that no longer exist or street names that have changed, but your directions never confuse any of the other Louisvillians
*

You have never been to the Derby, but wouldn't miss the Oaks.
*

You call in sick to attend the Oaks and spot your boss - who also called in sick - at the next betting window.
*

You think all the REAL hicks live in New Albany.
*

You think the only thing Southern Indiana is good for is buying pumpkins.
*

When introduced to another life-long Louisvillian, you spend the first part of the conversation finding out how you are connected. It's never as many as six degrees of separation - usually three will do it.
*

You've built a shrine to Rick Pitino in your basement.
*

You can read about Rick Pitino in at least three different sections of your newspaper.
*

You think the rest of the world knows what Benedictine spread is.
*

You think the rest of the world knows what a Hot Brown is.
*

You have never eaten fish that wasn't fried.
*

You think the whole world puts spaghetti in chili.
*

You want another bridge built over the Ohio River, just so long as it doesn't cut through YOUR neighborhood.
*

You've experienced a "salt storm" after a two-inch snowfall.
*

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Louisville.
