You Know You're In Arizona When

You've signed so many petitions to recall governors you can't
remember the name of the incumbent

You notice your car overheating before you drive it

You can say "Hohokam" and people don't think you're laughing

You no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water

You see more irrigation water on the street than there is in
the Salt River

You know a swamp cooler is not a happy hour drink

You can hear the weather forecast of 115 degrees without

You can be in the snow, then drive for an hour... and it'll be
over 100 degrees

You have to go to a fake beach for some fake waves

You discover, in July, that it only takes two fingers to drive
your car

You know you can make sun tea instantly

You run your air conditioner in the middle of winter so you can
use your fireplace

The best parking place is determined by shade -- not distance

You realize that "Valley Fever" isn't a disco dance

Hotter water comes from the cold water tap than the hot one

You can pronounce the words: "Saguaro", "Tempe", "San Xavier",
"Canyon de Chelly", "Mogollon Rim" and

It's noon in July, kids are on summer vacation and yet all the
streets are totally empty of both people and cars

You actually burn your hand opening the car door

Sunscreen is sold year round, kept right at the checkout

Sunscreen w/a formula less than 50 spf is a joke

You put on fresh sunscreen just to go check the mailbox

Some fool can market mini-misters for joggers and some other
fools will actually buy them

Worse -- some fools actually try to jog

You know that hot air balloons can't rise, because the air
temperature is hotter than the air inside the balloon

No one would dream of putting vinyl upholstery in a car

You can understand the reason for a town named "Why"

Don't forget some of the classics:

Youn can fry an egg on the hood of a car IN THE MORNING!

Arizona is the only place where they say "but its a DRY heat!"

The water here has more salt in it than the ocean (its true, from the
little colorado).

The "tree" of Arizona happen to be Cacti (watch out for them thorns).

Shade? Whats that?!?!

A hairy, tattooed, sunblackened biker walks into a truckstop with a .44
Magnum strapped to his hip. The highway patrolman looks up from his
coffee and doughnut and and says "Hot enough for ya?"
What do you tell a woman with two black eyes?

Nothing, you've told her twice already!
