20 Ways to Tell You’re Really From Louisiana


I saw this on Facebook earlier today and loved it! It’s 20 ways to tell if you’re really from Louisiana. Think of it as ‘You might be a Louisianan if…’ Enjoy!

1. You can properly pronounce Lafayette, Bossier, Natchitoches,
Opelousas, Shongaloo, Pontchartrain, Ouachita, and you know
that New Orleans doesn’t have a long “e” sound anywhere in it.

2. You think people who complain about the heat in their states
are pansies.

3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard
and look for a funnel.

4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not

15. You aren’t surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and
bait all in the same store.

16. A Mercedes Benz isn’t a status symbol. A Ford F-250
Extended Bed Crew Cab Powerstroke is a status symbol.

17. You know everything goes better with ‘Tony’s’.

18. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how
to multiply.

19. You actually get these jokes and are “fixin” to send them
to your friends.

20. You’re not offended by the term “coonass.” If anything,
it’s a compliment.

Finally, you are 100% Louisianian if you have ever had this

“You wanna coke?”
“What kind?”
“Dr Pepper.”
