You Know You're From Milwaukee When . . .


Found over at Lost In Wisconsin.

You’ve been to the Rep and could smell beer, brats, and kraut.

You drive around with little Green Bay Packers flags on your car.

You and your friends spend all day Sunday drinking at the bar, bashing the Cubs.

You don’t know that Schlitz, Blatz, and Pabst aren’t brewed in Milwaukee anymore

You know people who have tied dead animals to the hoods of their cars.

You know what a “Supper Club” is.

You’ve eaten beer, brats, and kraut for breakfast.

You think “The Safe House” is better than Disneyworld.

You won’t let a car from out of state go faster than you.

You call Air Force Ones Dookies

No matter where you go you see the Jesus Car – and can’t understand what’s coming out the speakers

You cruised Hwy 100 or Sherman Ave

To you, Martin Luther King Drive is still 3rd St. and Cesar Chavez Drive is still 16th St

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Milwaukee.

I actually get all of those jokes! The Safe House!! OMG ! 😀

A few additions of my own:

1. You’re driving downtown and you smell yeast and it’s not bread.
2. You don’t do the ‘neighborly’ think and help pick up garbage in Veteran’s Park.
3. You worry when the blue light on top of the gas building flickers.
4. You still call it “County Stadium”
