A Temple Recommend is something that an LDS person must have before they can enter one of the Temple's... having one (supposedly) means that you are living your life to the best LDS standards... so the joke is that a Temple Recommend is acceptable for check cashing because obviously someone worthy of a Recommend would never cheat or write a bad check

A girl from Pittsburgh was complaining the other day about how HOT it was.
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

You're from Adelaide, South Australia if...

You have been to the club formerly known as Heaven at least once (and you were
under 18).

You have been to Glenelg and got extremely sunburnt

You know what fritz is

You go out to the same place EVERY Saturday night

You have the same friends from high school

You can't go out without seeing someone you know

You really miss the old Sizzler cheese bread

You have been to one of the following lookouts: Stirling, Mt Lofty, Penfolds
Rd, Sunnyside Rd, Eagle On The Hill, Montefiore Hill

You know who Stormy Summers is

You know what Fruchocs are

You believe that anything that has ever breathed or moved in Adelaide air
is 'Adelaide's Own'

You're well aware that for one month of the year, it is impossible to travel
from one side of the city to the other, and during this period you will
magically acquire a love of the arts, appreciation for world music, expertise
in food and wine and become completely immersed in the culture of horse racing.

You pour Farmer's Union Iced Coffee on your breakfast cereal.

You will never forgive Melbourne for stealing our Grand Prix. Never.

You know how 'dance', 'pool', 'castle' and 'graph' are SUPPOSED to be

You say a Pie Floater tastes great just to maintain your street cred.

You consider Coopers to be a food group.

You believe that other states' time zones are not good enough for us.

You acknowledge that, while half of our state is uninhabitable, you know that
it's still the greatest.

You think the 'Tiser has no journalistic integrity whatsoever.... and yet you

Australian patriotism.

You know the people out on the Torrens are either tourists or rowers. No one
else would go near that water.

You think the Festival Centre is a wonder of modern architecture.

You console yourself that, despite all our faults, at least South Australia
wasn't built by convicts.

You can leave work at 5:15 and miss "peak hour traffic"

You're not scared by Aboriginals walking around Adelaide in speedos and gumboots

Your 'sports gurus' are KG and Cornesy

You know what a 'stobie pole' is

You don't know what the meaning of the "Mall's balls" but you make sure you meet people there

You either live on one side or the other of the great divide (Gepps Cross

Another "You know you're from Arizona" list.
And another one.

I especially like these:
  • You think someone driving wearing oven mitts is clever.
  • You've signed so many petitions to recall governors that you can't remember the name of the incumbent.
  • You see more irrigation water on the street than there is in the Salt River.
  • Vehicles with open windows have the right-of-way in the summer.
  • You notice the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
  • You know better than to get into a car with leather seats if you're wearing shorts. (When I was a kid, my parents' cars had vinyl seats! )
I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem.

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.
