OK. Fine. I'll do the Montana one. Though I find it interesting that it's a far shorter list than anyone else's! Who do I complain to about that?

  • You get passed when you are driving seventy five. (Usually by David Letterman!)
  • The rodeo is the social event of the year. (Every county has at least one/year.)
  • You tell North Dakota jokes. (And it's so easy!)
  • The pickup trucks all have two rifles and two big dogs. (Rifles inside, dogs outside.)
  • People you don't know smile and say "Howdy." (Or "Cold enough for ya?")
  • Bumper stickers are about guns, horses or chewing tobacco. (Or "Save the Blackfoot". Lots of environmental ones.)
  • The only people wearing white shirts are out of town Lawyers. (Or Mormon missionaries.)
  • Someone says manure spreader and you know it isn't the local congressman. (Yep.)
  • When the car in front of you is weaving, you suspect a farmer instead of a drunk. (It's still legal to drink and drive in MT!)
  • You can actually pronounce the City's name Glasgow (Glasgo) without calling it Glascow. (Just like Moscow, ID.)
  • Maps and gloves are kept in your vehicles "jockey box". (And a flask.)
  • You can choose plastic bags or a paper sacks for your groceries. (Or bring your own!)
  • You have 10 favorite recipes for Elk meat. (And another 3-4 for bear meat.)
  • You can write a check at McDonald's for 2 Big Macs and fries. (Credit cards, too!)
  • The most effective mosquito repellent is a shotgun. (Wrong. There is no effective mosquito repellent.)
  • The major county fund-raiser isn't bingo - it's sausage making. (Nope. It's 50/50 drawings.)
  • You attend a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry, and your Sorels. (The governor wears jeans to formal events.)
