That's way better than the Ohio list I found, and a lot of it actually applies to my area (Ohio-PA border).<br><br><br><br>
You know someon'e from Pennsylvania when they add R's to words that don't have them (such as warsh, I mean, wash).

Yes!! My mom and grandma say "Warshington." hehe<br><br><br><br>
You'd probably get the Pittsburgh list, too. <a href="http://www.blogthings.com/pittsburgh.html" target="_blank">http://www.blogthings.com/pittsburgh.html</a>

Lol, I tried to tell my friends here about the Youngstown mafia and I don't think they believed me. I grew up thinking that nighttime restaurant fires were a natural occurence and was utterly shocked in high school when I found out who actually sets them.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: I just found <a href="http://www.warrenpages.com/from_the_valley.htm" target="_blank">this list</a>, which is almost exactly the same as Pittsburgh's except that it's moved two counties over into Ohio. Trust the Mahoning Valley to blatently plagiarize and still think they're doing something orginal. The Valley-specific ones were pretty funny, though, and very true.<br><br><br><br>
This makes me miss home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">

Okay, my dad grew up in Philly and attended Temple Med School. My brother was born in Philly (but grew up in L.A.), but also attended Temple Med School. So I'm gonna run these lists past them and see if they register any. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

These from your list also apply to where I live in Ohio, too. One of my friends, who grew up in Akron but now lives in Cincy, was most surprised when he visited my apartment and heard the "clip clop clip clop" of a horse-drawn Amish buggy. His head jerked up and he exclaimed, "What is <i>that</i>?!"<br><br><br><br>
I told him to look out the window. Two or three times an hour I see the buggies on my street. Normal here.

Since I'm probably the only one on VB from Lancaster, I'm here to represent<br><br><br><br>
* Your driving lessons involved learning to avoid horse droppings.<br><br>
If you don't know how to avoid them, you don't belong on the road<br><br><br><br>
* You know at least 5 euphemisms for animal manure and at least 4 of them involve food.<br><br>
Road apples, cow pies, buffalo chips, Hershey squirts . . . I know more, just can't recall them at the moment<br><br><br><br>
* You know how to cook, but not without butter.<br><br>
Never cooked with butter in my life, baking on the other hand. . .<br><br><br><br>
* You've been to a Chicken and Waffle Dinner.<br><br>
What?<br><br><br><br>
* You spend at least 30 minutes every summer day complaining about New Jersey drivers.<br><br>
for most people I know anyone is fair game any time of the year<br><br><br><br>
* You don't understand why people would ever want to see the Amish.<br><br>
I wouldn't go to Texas to see cowboys<br><br><br><br>
* You have ever ended a sentence with "a while".<br><br>
I do it once in a while<br><br><br><br>
* You do not giggle when you see the following signs:<br><br>
-- Lititz<br><br>
-- Intercourse<br><br>
-- Blue Ball<br><br>
-- Bird-in-Hand<br><br>
-- Mount Joy<br><br>
True<br><br><br><br>
* You've heard of 7-11 but you've never seen one.<br><br>
Yes I have<br><br><br><br>
* You cannot buy beer and wine from the same store.<br><br>
Well if I was of legal age . . .<br><br><br><br>
* Park City has nothing to do with skiing for you.<br><br>
What does it have to do with skiing? That's how skiing is spelled?<br><br><br><br>
* Agnes 1972 means something to you and you can tell stories about it.<br><br>
Wasn't there but I could repeat some yarns<br><br><br><br>
* You pronounce Lancaster in "Burt Lancaster" differently from Lancaster in "Lancaster, PA".<br><br>
We're the only "Lancaster" in the world, we are special and famous, learn to pronounce it right<br><br><br><br>
* And you giggle at people who say "Aee-mish".<br><br>
Where did the Aee come from?<br><br><br><br>
* Your iced tea is sweeter than Pepsi.<br><br>
That's not iced tea, that's tea flavored high fructose corn syrup<br><br><br><br>
* You think Fasnacht Day and Groundhog Day are national holidays.<br><br>
How can people no want to celebrate the awesomeness that is the Fasnacht; I will make vegan Fasnachts and give them to friends in what ever non-fasnacht part of the world that I'm in during Carnival. And Punxsutawney Phil rocks, Gus is such a sale out<br><br><br><br>
* You know that eggs come in either white or brown - and you have a preference.<br><br>
None for me, but brown are healthier<br><br><br><br>
* You think the Mississippi is just a tad wider than the Susquehanna.<br><br>
I'd say a stone's throw wider<br><br><br><br>
* You don't have to be told what Shoo Fly Pie is.<br><br>
Isn't there a Shoo Fly Pie recipe on every bottle of molasses<br><br><br><br>
* You go to the store when the milk is "all".<br><br>
* The word "red" is a verb.<br><br>
Ok, I have live in Lancaster my whole life and I had never heard those words used that way 'til my 11th grade English teacher taught us about dialect writing, them my friend made fun of me for it.<br><br><br><br>
* "Come with?" is a complete sentence.<br><br>
I don't know about the rest of the county, but I learned more about grammar in 4 years of high school Spanish, then in 13 years of all other classes combine.<br><br><br><br>
* You know what Donkey baseball is.<br><br>
basketball maybe<br><br><br><br>
* You know what a liquid pit is.<br><br>
Sadly yes. I even know people who almost drown in them (dairy is hazardous)<br><br><br><br>
* At times, you utter things like, "Throw over the fence some hay."<br><br>
see "come with"<br><br><br><br>
* It may be raining, but the question is: "Is it makin' down?" or "Is it really makin' down?"<br><br>
nope<br><br><br><br>
* The verb "to be" is useless: "Does Fido need out?"<br><br>
see "come with"<br><br><br><br>
* You remember when Park City Mall had a flea market in the basement. Or worse yet, a skating rink.<br><br>
I heard 'bout the good ol' days<br><br><br><br>
* You own quilts and know their names.<br><br>
On a tangent: Amish started outsourcing them from 3rd world Asian countries. The Amish!<br><br><br><br>
* You know what a Turkey Hill is , and you've ditched school to hang out there.<br><br>
No need, our cafeteria was owned by Turkey Hill . . . and Herr's<br><br><br><br>
* You've corrected all the errors while watching Witness.<br><br>
Yep yep<br><br><br><br>
* Rush hour is on Saturday afternoon -- in the summer.<br><br>
or on tuesdays and Thursdays in the autumn<br><br><br><br>
* WGAL is the source of all local celebrities and they create quite a stir when they shop in the supermarket.<br><br>
And FM97<br><br><br><br>
* You've ordered "dippy eggs" for breakfast.<br><br>
that does not sound good<br><br><br><br>
* The Green Dragon ain't no Chinese restaurant.<br><br>
ah the green dragon, never been there but heard the stories. If you were from another country and stuck in Lancaster (you better thought pronouncing it correctly by now) and only had a few hours to see what America is all about, the Green Dragon is the place to go.<br><br><br><br>
* Bacon drippings are an ingredient for making salad dressing.<br><br>
How many times do I have to say it, just because we are in the southern end, does not mean we are below the Mason-Dixon line<br><br><br><br>
* You think tourist attractions consist of a pretzel factory, a chocolate factory and an Amish family out for a drive.<br><br>
eh, it's what the people want<br><br><br><br>
* You do things "once," as in, "I'll go check in the back room once."<br><br>
Well I didn't think you were going to do it more than that.<br><br><br><br>
* You call sloppy joes "barbecue."<br><br>
The locals don't believe you when you tell them what BBQ really is.<br><br><br><br>
* You think Medium Rare equals Well Done.<br><br>
I never liked the taste of cooked meat and somehow I've gotten food poisoning more time after going veg then before.<br><br><br><br>
* Words like:<br><br>
gumband- I think that's something a Stealers fan would say<br><br>
buggie- no need to explain<br><br>
hoagie- I call 'en subs, I only know 1 person that calls them heroes, but it's 50/50 subs or hoagies<br><br>
chipped beef- reminds me of something wild dogs would feed their young<br><br>
scrapple- I'm glad all parts of the pig get used. Out of state family members ask for this all the time.<br><br><br><br>
Despite all this, the factory farms, dead calves in the fields, and the first day of (rifle) deer season is a school holiday this is a surprisingly vegan-friendly place (as long as you don't listen to certain people). I know more veg*ns than I ever would have for this area. One of the Amish stores even sells vegan ice cream!
