Jeff Foxworthy on folks from Texas

If someone in a Lowe’s store offers you assistance and they don’t work there, you may live in Texas;

If you’ve worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Texas;

If you’ve had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas;

If “Vacation” means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas;

If you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas;

If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas;

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas;

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas;

If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph - you’re going 80 and everybody’s passing you, you may live in Texas;

If you find 60 degrees “a little chilly,” you may live in Texas;

If you actually understand these jokes, and share them with all your Texas friends, you definitely live in Texas.
