Jeff Foxworthy‘s commentary on West Virginia:

If you’re proud that your region makes the national news 96 nights
each year because Elkins is the coldest spot in the nation, you might
live in West Virginia .

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March, you
might live in West Virginia .

If you instinctively walk like a penguin for five months out of the
year, you might live in West Virginia .

If someone in a store offers you assistance, and they don’t work
there, you might live in West Virginia cause you’re all so damn

If your dad’s suntan stops at a line curving around the middle of his
forehead, cause he wears a hardhat you might live in West Virginia
If you have worn shorts, sunglasses and a parka at the same time, you
might live in West Virginia .

If your town has an equal number of bars and churches, or if you are
in church and your priest or minister asks you to p ray for the
MOUNTAINEERS, and wants to get you all home for 1 p.m. kickoff, you
might live in West Virginia ..

If you have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who
dialed a wrong number, you might live in West Virginia .
