A friend of mine put this together. I thought you folks might get a kick out of it.

(PART 1)

You're from East-Tennessee if you can name all four seasons, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if they are: Mosquito Season, Snake Season, Speed-Trap Season, and Mud Season.



You're from East-Tennessee if you own flannel shirts, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if you've ever worn a tie with one.



You're from East-Tennessee if you drive back-roads, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if you drive them to avoid cops.



You're from East-Tennessee if you own a pick-up truck, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if it has four-wheel-drive and winches on both ends.



You're from East-Tennessee if you visit the flea-market, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if you don't bother to bring any money.



You're from East-Tennessee if you live on a dirt-road, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if there is a plywood fence around the house, a vegetable garden out back, a wood-pile somewhere, and old appliances on the front porch.



You're from East-Tennessee if you eat at McDonald's, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if you call it MacDonaldses.



You're from East-Tennessee if you read the Sentinel, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if you believe it.



You're from East-Tennessee if you know everyone in town, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if they're all related to you.



You're from East-Tennessee if you go to the dump on Saturday, but you're REALLY from East-Tennessee if you leave with more than you brought.
