For the Pee-AAY people

About Pennsylvanians:




You've never referred to Philadelphia as anything but 'Philly' and New Jersey has always been ' Jersey '



You refer to Pennsylvania as 'PA' (pronounced Pee-ay).



How many other states do that?


'Yooz guys' is a perfectly acceptable reference to a group of men and women


You know how to respond to the question 'Djeetyet?' (Did you eat yet?)


You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre , Schuylkill, the Pocono's, Tamaqua, Tunkannock, Bala Cynwyd, Duquesne and Monongahela.

And we know Lancaster is pronounced Lank aster, not Lan kaster.


You know what a 'Mummer' is, and are disappointed if you can't catch at least highlights of the parade.



You know what 'Punxsutawney Phil' is, and what it means if he sees his shadow.


The first day of buck and the first day of doe season are school holidays.

At least five people on your block have electric 'candles' in all or most of their windows all year long.



You know what a 'State Store' is, and your out-of-state friends find it incredulous that you can't purchase liquor at the mini-mart.



Words like 'hoagie,' 'crick,' 'chipped ham,' 'dippy eggs', 'sticky buns,'
'shoo-fly pie,' 'lemon sponge pie', 'pierogies' and 'pocketbook' actually mean something to you.

That's PA slang for purse!


You can eat cold pizza (even for breakfast) and know others who do the same. Those from NY find this 'barbaric.'

You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know it comes in several colors.


You know the difference between a cheese steak and a pizza steak sandwich, and know that you can't get a really good one outside PA, except Atlantic City on the boardwalk.


You live for summer, when street and county fairs signal the beginning
of funnel cake season.



You know that Blue Ball, Intercourse, Paradise , Climax, Bird-in-Hand, Beaver, Moon, Virginville, Mars, and Slippery Rock are PA towns.



(and the first three were consecutive stops on the Reading RR).


You know what a township, borough, and commonwealth is.


You can identify drivers from New York , New Jersey , Maryland or other neighboring states by their unique and irritating driving habits.


A traffic jam is 10 cars waiting to pass a horse-drawn carriage on the highway in Lancaster County


You know several people who have hit deer more than once.


You carry jumper cables in your car and your female passengers know how to use them.


Driving is always better in winter because the potholes are filled with snow.


As a kid you built snow forts and leaf piles that were taller than you were.


You know beer doesn't grow in a garden but you know where to find a beer garden. You also know someone who lives 'down the lane'.

You actually understand all this and send it on to other Pennsylvanians for former Pennsylvanians!






A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.
