A great state Idaho


Listen up City Slickers !

1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

2. Turn your cap right, your head isn't crooked.

3. Let's get this straight; it's called a 'dirt road.' I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

4. They are cattle. They're live steaks. That's why they smell funny to you. But they smell like money to us. Get over it. Don't like it? I-84 goes east and west, US-95 goes north and south. Pick one.

5. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed. We have $150,000 corn pickers and hay balers that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

6. So every person in rural Idaho waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

7. If that cell phone rings while an 8-point buck and 3 does are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

8. Yeah, we eat taters & gravy, beans & cornbread. You really want sushi & caviar? It's available at Jim's bait shop.

9. The 'Opener' refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

10. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women , regardless of age.

11. No, there's no 'vegetarian special' on the menu. Order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.

12. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup. Oh, yeah.... We don't care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff you eat... IT AIN'T REAL CHILI!!

13. You bring 'coke' into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice.

14. You bring 'Mary Jane' into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

15. College and High School Football is as important here as the Seahawks and the Sonic's, and more fun to watch.

16. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards -- it spooks the fish.

17. Colleges? We have them all over. We have State Universities , Community Colleges, and Vo-techs. They come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at everybody when they come for the holidays.

18. We have a whole ton of folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. So don't mess with us. If you do, you will get whipped by the best.

19. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump crap ain't music, anyway. We don't want to hear it anymore than we want to see your boxers. Refer back to #1.

20. 4 inches isn't a blizzard - it's a flurry. Drive like you got some sense in it, and DON'T take all our bread, milk, and bleach from the grocery stores. This ain't Alaska , worst case you may have to live a whole day without croissants. The pickups with snow blades will have you out the next day.

A true Idahoan will send this on!!!

Re: A great state Idaho

I tell ya, that's how it is here in WV. just different highways and football teams. and if ya really wanna have some fun on a back road drivin fast (i'm talkin about not bein able to sh!t for a week cause ya puckered your sphincter so hard, ) go for a drive down what we call the old clifftop road. it's near where my girlfriend grew up. it cuts about 10 miles off a trip to town. it's supposed to be a 35mph speed limit, but for anyone who lives in clifftop that's more of a 40mph minimum speed (that's only around the curves). and the best part is the paft that it's a rough, single lane "paved" road with gravel shoulders. even better is when your ridin with my girlfriends mom in either her 91s10 blazer (bad shocks and the body mounts are almost rusted off) or her '99 beetle (d@mn low-ridin go-kart thing, always gougin the oil pan on the edge of that so-called pavement), the bad part is that i have, honest to god, been in the blazer with her when she almost had it on 2 wheels. I like drivin our lumina on that old road though, it's like a cross between a cadillac and a rally car when i'm drivin it at close to 65 on that road.

god, that reminds me of the time i ran a state cop off the road!! i was amazed he almost went over a 35' embankment and he didn't even try to pull me over. guess he realized that he needed to learn how to drive before he took that shortcut anymore, lol! good times.
unfortunately i fell off the bus. and now i'm not even near the darn road! ;) ;)
