You know you’re from Midlothian when:

-You know when Pulaski turns into Crawford.
-You know to do anything even remotely fun you have to travel to Orland.
-You are annoyingly reminded of what level alert we are at.
-You cover your ears Tuesday mornings at 10:00 AM.
-You’ve ever used the term “Midlo” or “Jalibo”(extra points for using them together)
-At Christmastime, you miss the old owners of the house on Avers.
-You know the house near the hill that gives out full candy bars at Halloween.
-You know that “Thunder Over Midlothian” doesn’t refer to a local storm system.
-You know at least four people who were either players or cheerleaders for the Wildcats.
-At least two generations of your own family graduated with either a Kries or a Dempsey.
-You’ve never once stopped in at that stupid Scottish Fair.
-You know who Means Business.
-You plan your summer around Fiesta.
-As a kid, you planned on how to break into the time capsule ahead of time.
-When you use the term “Dyke”, you’re talking about history and not lesbians.
-You hate Oak Forest, fear Robbins, and barely notice that Posen is there.
-You remember the terrifying "Homie The Clown" Scandal.
-You take pride in the fact that Bacheoler's Grove is in your town.
-You or someone you know has had a part-time job at Jaycee's Haunted House.
-You know what the Groovy Disco, Clue Nightclub, and the Pharoh's Night Spot have in common.
-You remember when Harry's and Saravan's used to be nice restraunts.
-You are mad that all the signs off the highway say "Harvey" or "Markham" instead of Midlothian.
-You stand firm in the knowledge that pride did not build your community - your grandfather did.
-You have been to Civic Center dances.
-You don't miss the Hodge Podge. You miss the batting cages.
-You wept when you found out Willie's WeeNee Wagon was bought out.
-You know that if you want to see some Jerry Springer type-esque stuff in person and for free, all you need to do is go to Subport at 3 A.M.(Get some garlic fries and wait for it!)
-You actually get these jokes and pass them along to your other suburbanite friends.
