Jeff Foxworthy on Upstate New York

Its been a pretty rough day and my Mom just sent me this via email and it actually cheered me up a bit. It made me laugh and I thought I would share it here. Pretty much all of it is true!

You can get the original list from a posting on AssociatedContent.

  1. I’d love to know if this is really Foxworthy. Someone else forwarded it to me. It’s funny (I’m from Rochester NY), but I have a personal bugaboo for ‘Untruths on the Internet’. I got to your site by GOOGLEing FOXWORTHY UPSTATE NY. My wife just forwarded me an official-looking report on Osama Bin Laden and Oliver North. It’s dead untrue. Go to Snopes and search BIN LADEN OLIVER NORTH for a facinating look at the truth. Sorry to bug you about this, but if you can confirm if this is Foxworthy (or not) I’d be in your debt. Otherwise, feel free to dump me in the recycle bin. I think that’s where I live anyhow.

  2. I’m another skeptical Rochesterian. I’ve seen a much longer list for upstate New York. I’ve also seen pretty much the same list for New England, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Canada, Ontario, and Manitoba. I posted it because I enjoyed it. I doubt that Mr. Foxworthy wrote the same list about all of these regions. I haven’t found anything definitive.
