Ten Often Critical "You Know You're From Denver When" Reader Punchlines
Additional images below.
Last week, after we shared our latest "You Know You're From Denver When" punchlines, we asked readers to share their favorite way of completing that sentence.
Lots of other folks weighed in as well, and not all of their suggestions were celebratory. Indeed, there was a critical edge to several of the selections, with Coloradans who want to keep the state to themselves among the targets. But there are also picks that echo with nostalgia or simple affection.
We photo-illustrated the ten most memorable picks. Check them out below.
Number 10: You know you're from Denver when...you think you're better than everyone who isn't native.
Number 9: You know you are from Denver when...you think Denver and Colorado is "yours."
Number 8: You know you're from Denver when...all of a sudden rent went up $400 on you.
Number 7: You know you're from Denver when...you actually respect the mountains unlike the new people that are moving to Colorado.

Number 6: You know you're from Denver when...you were part of the movement to legalize marijuana and get pissed off because everyone else from other states want to take advantage of it.Next Page
