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.

One person, Matt Morava, went above and beyond the call, submitting an entire top ten list — one that we shared in the days that followed.

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.
