Default A joke list for all my fellow native Arizonans out there (most especially Jester)

You know you're an Arizonan when:

1) You think any temperature under 90 degrees is "too cold."

2) You're surrounded by more Mexican restaurants than gas stations.

3) You start sweating the moment you step outside your house.

4) Your air conditioning bill is at least three times your phone bill.

5) You think an "exotic vacation" means going to Nogales, Mexico for the weekend.

6) You eat chips and salsa for breakfast.

7) You show up to a high-profile interview wearing a bolo tie.

8) You shout "Go Devils!" every time you see Griffindor playing Quidditch in a Harry Potter movie.

9) You think Wallace and Ladmo is high-brow humor.

10) You laugh at the naive tourists from around the world buying worthless souvenirs from the Grand Canyon's many tourist traps.

11) You own more water bottles than pens and pencils.

12) You have to peel yourself off the sofa.

13) You have fans to keep your fans cool.

14) You think rain is a miracle.

15) Everyone in your neighborhood is a do it yourself mechanic.

16) You use chili peppers as stocking stuffers for Christmas.

17) Hard work holds a certain fascination for you. You wonder how in the hell those Mexicans can do it.

18) Cinco de Mayo (unofficially known as "Drinko de Mayo") is a paid state holiday.

19) You hold tailgate parties in the dead of night--and you're still sweating like a pig!

20) You can tape a summer weather forecast and replay it daily without anyone knowing the difference.

21) "Formal dining" means you stop using paper plates for a night.

22) Political diversity is beloved--you can see Democrats, Libertarians, Independents AND moderate Republicans hung up in town square!

23) You get drunk on Whiskey Row in Prescott and wonder where $100 went.

24) You laugh at snowbirds when they say it's hot.

And finally, you REALLY know you're an Arizonan when...
25) "roughing it" means going FIVE WHOLE MINUTES without air conditioning!!!

My first year in college, my roomates were a girl from Arizona, and a girl from Oregon (I'm from the Texas Panhandle). When the first rain came, me and Arizona girl were outside dancing in it while Oregon girl looked at us like It would get to be above 70 degrees, and Oregon girl would be moaning about how how it was, while me and Arizona girl were delighting in the cool weather! LOL

Oh, and Oregon girl also thought that tumbleweeds were an invention of Hollywood.

A girl from Pittsburgh was complaining the other day about how HOT it was. It was a whopping 85 degrees.

My friend from Florida broke out her sweatshirt...when it was in the 70s. I break out my sweatshirt...when it's in the low 50s. 70s is t-shirt and shorts.

Thanks to Google's ability to convert between measurement systems, I can understand what people are talking about! In South Australia, "hot weather" starts in the mid-30s Celsius, which is 95 Fahrenhiet. The hottest day that I remember was 49C, which is 120F.

Cold is anything below 12C, 53F.

ETA: One time my Canadian-born cousin was seen wearing nothing but a bathrobe and sandals outside when it was 1C (33.8F)

I used to go barefoot till there was an inch of snow on the ground. Usually paired with a hippie skirt and loose top - rarely a coat.

Then I'd put on birks for a month or so, and switch to 'real' shoes sometime in December.

Yay for New England!

85 is nothing. It sometimes goes over 90-95 up here, with high humidity. Hell, I remember one year it was 70 in January Didn't stay that way long--we got a blizzard a few days later

I do agree with mostly everything on there. Being one of a few who were born and raised there for the most part. In winter in Phx a cold day would be highs in the low 50's.

Where i live for now, Salt Lake City is a different story. Being a native "zonie" I laugh at all who complain diring the summer that its sooooo hot even though its 85-90 degrees. On the other hand I am the baby during winter because it is so dang cold...well at least to me.
