I am from Missouri so my Hump Day Humor relates to the "Show Me State"


You've never met any celebrities.

Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.

"Vacation" means driving through Arnold or going to Six Flags.

You've seen all the biggest bands ten years after they were popular.

You measure distance in minutes.

"Down south" to you means Tennessee.

You know several people who have hit a deer.

You think Missouri is spelled with an "a" at the end.

Your school classes were canceled because of cold.

Your school classes were canceled because of heat.

You've ridden the school bus for an hour each way.

You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

You think ethanol makes your truck "run a lot better."

You know what's knee-high by the Fourth of July.

You see people wear bib overalls at funerals.

You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in it no matter what time of the year.

You know in your heart that Mizzou can beat Nebraska in football.

You end your sentences with an unnecessary preposition. Example: "Where's my coat at?" or "If you go to the mall I wanna go with."

All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, or grain.

You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

You think of the major four food groups as beef, pork, beer, and Jell-O salad with marshmallows.

You carry jumper cables in your car and know that everyone else should.

You know what "cow tipping" or "Possum Kicking" is.

You only own 3 spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup.

You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie.

The local paper covers national and international headlines on one page but requires 6 pages for sports.

You think I-44 is spelled "foarty-foar."

You think that deer season is a national holiday.

You know which leaves make good toilet paper.

You find 105 degrees F "a little warm".

You know all 4 seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Construction

You know if another Missourian is from eastern, middle or western Missouri as soon as they open their mouth.

You think "frog gigging" should be an Olympic sport.

You've ever tried to use a butter knife to cut the summertime air to get some relief.

You think Imo's is larger than Pizza Hut.

You failed world geography in school because you thought Cuba, Versailles, California, Nevada, Houston, Cabool, Louisiana, Springfield, and Mexico were cities in Missouri.

You actually get these jokes and forward them to all your Missouri friends.


  1. This is awesome! I have never been to Missouri. What is Arnold? Arnold in my town is Arnold Air Force Base. I love down the road from it. I am down South to you: Tennessee-lol! Our schools close for rain, wind, and flurries-haha! Thank goodness I have never road a school bus! I am a teacher and I feel sorry for the bus riders. Bib overalls at funerals -hehe! The rest sounds much like Tennessee. I need to go to Missouri-I believe I would be at home! Thanks so much for playing! Having a hard time getting this meme going! Feel free to join us for Scrumptious Sunday! Happy Hump Day!

  2. These are really similar to another great state! What is "frog gigging"?

  3. Frog gigging is the practice of hunting frogs with a spear. The spear is called a gig and usually has at least three tines, like a trident. Flashlights are sometimes used to daze the frogs, for easier capture.

    Arnold, Missouri is a rather large town in the suburbs of St. Louis...great area to shop in!
