  1. Dear Miss L’Anne,

    I submit the following as a guide to Louisiana people, to-wit:

    20 Ways To Know You’re From Louisiana:

    1. You can properly pronounce Lafayette, Bossier, Natchitoches,
    Opelousas, Shongaloo, Pontchartrain, Ouachita, and you know
    that New Orleans doesn’t have a long “e” sound anywhere in it.

    2. You think people who complain about the heat in their states
    are pansies.

    3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard
    and look for a funnel.

    4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not
    determined by the distance to the door, but by the
    availability of shade.

    5. Stores don’t have bags, they have sacks.

    6. You’ve seen people wear bib overalls at funerals.

    7. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

    8. You measure distance in minutes.

    9. Little Smokies are something you serve only for special
    occasions.

    10. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to
    the ocean.

    11. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an
    outfit.

    12. You know cowpatties are not made of beef.

    13. Someone you know has used a LSU football schedule to
    plan their wedding date.

    14. You have known someone who has a belt buckle bigger
    than your fist.

    15. You aren’t surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and
    bait all in the same store.

    16. A Mercedes Benz isn’t a status symbol. A Ford F-250
    Extended Bed Crew Cab Powerstroke is a status symbol.

    17. You know everything goes better with ‘Tony’s’.

    18. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how
    to multiply.

    19. You actually get these jokes and are “fixin” to send them
    to your friends.

    20. You’re not offended by the term “coonass.” If anything,
    it’s a compliment.

    Finally, you are 100% Louisianian if you have ever had this
    conversation:

    “You wanna coke?”
    “Yeah.”
    “What kind?”
    “Dr Pepper.”

    I love your new venture and encourage you continued effort,

    Love,

    Uncle Jay
