Jeff Foxworthy on Alberta:


If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you may live in Alberta.


If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you may live in Alberta.


If you instinctively walk like a penguin for six months out of the year, you may live in Alberta.


If your dad's suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his forehead, you may live in Alberta.


If you have worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live in Alberta.


If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Alberta.

5. You can drive 110 kph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.


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


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


8. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction.


9. Your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of a deer next to your blue spruce.


10. "Down south" to you means Calgary...


11. Your 1st of July picnic was moved indoors due to frost.
