You know you're from California when ...

Ran across yet another list on Facebook devoted to fun facts about California. It's not as good as the "You know you're from Bakersfield when" post (see that one here) but funny nonetheless. If you want to read it on Facebook, go here. Otherwise, here's a few laughs to start the day.

You know you're from California when ...

1) You go to the Beach - not "down to the shore."

2) You know 65 mph really means 100.

3) Our governor can kick your governor's ass.

4) You judge people based on what area code they live in...

5) You can get fresh and REAL Mexican food 24 hours a day.

6) We call it soda, not pop.

7) The fastest part of your commute is down your driveway.

8) You were born somewhere else.

9) Your sense of direction: Toward the ocean and away from the ocean.

10) Your car has bullet-proof windows.

11) Your monthly house payments exceed your annual income.

12) You can't find your other earring because your son/brother is wearing it.

13) You drive to your neighborhood block party.

14) Your family tree contains "significant others."

15) You see 25 lawyers chasing an ambulance.

16) More than clothes come out of the closets.

17) You go to a tanning salon before going to the beach.

18) It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH"

19) You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from California.

20) Your coworker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.

21) You make over $300,000 and still can't afford a house.

22) You don't care what race people are because you're too busy wondering what gender they are.

23) A really great parking space can totally move you to tears.

24) A low speed police pursuit will interrupt ANY TV broadcast.

25) Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.

26) Your hairdresser is straight, your plumber is gay, the woman who delivers your mail is into S and M, and your Mary Kay rep is a guy in drag.

27) Both you AND your dog have therapists.

28) You pass an elementary school playground and the children are all busy with their cell phones or pagers.
