Fun Day Monday: You Know You're NOT Local If...

April 26th, 2010

A little over a year ago, we had an active discussion about how you can tell if someone is "local" or not. In fact, I believe it was the first time we hit triple digits (in comments) up in this heezy. In case you missed it, chicky chicky check it: You Know You're Local If...

There were several moments this weekend when I saw peeps acting supah "non-local" and it made me want us to chat up about it this week. So let's see what our WWE `Ohana can come up with ah?

"You Know You're NOT Local If..."

I'll start:
* You wear matching aloha wear from head to toe (and think it looks cool).

    @NeedaHobby... or when they ask (in response to "i'm from hawaii."), "what country is that in?"

    bah, it's too hard to paddle my canoe while wearing a coconut bra! 😉

    #104 et al: I've heard "Cam-ee-cam-ee-ha-ha" from a haole up here trying to read the name (but not really trying that hard, obv.)

  9. matt:

    you see manapua and say "ooh, pork buns!!" ( a friend of mine actually said this one, but he was JOJ from the continent at the time...which kind of proves my point)

  10. Rosette:

    you are the only one that can't run while wering thongs slippers.....slipper becomes dangerous get hit in the eyes while running.

  11. Rosette:

    you are the only one that never seen a sting ray so you put yourself out to sit with them and get stung by jelly fish!

  12. Rosette:

    oh then you go around town not knowing you are in rough section you stick out like sore thumb all white!! OMG FUNNY!

  13. tita leerz:

    @matt #108: I've heard that one too!

  14. matt:

    @tl (I going use the abbreviation and not chance a typo again): that gets me all irraz. it's one thing if your tongue is not used to saying foreign words (from any language) and you butcher the pronunciation, but it's a whole other thing if you're just lazy and don't even try to say the words correctly. I mean fricken Kamehameha is long, but if you break it up into parts, any pre-schooler who's just learning letter sounds could read it. sheesh.

  15. brkndlaw:

    You don't park your car in reverse.

  16. brkndlaw:

    Your mouth doesn't automatically salivate when you hear "li hing mui."

  17. brkndlaw:

    You go pee pee, not shi shi.

  18. Rosette:

    read that the queen has second name ELIZABETH..well she that smart Queen easy to say her name.. ..then if you hit the king Kamehameha on the head with large paddle you get free land..what if fifty guys hit him on the head would he give them all land?

  19. Rosette:

    yes you think after king Kamehameha he gave the two guys land people will be smacking him on the head....

  20. tita leerz: preschooler can say it

    @brkndlaw #116...i think i need to go crackseed store now.

    One uses an den an den an den an den. Sumethin la dat.
