It's been more than a year since we shared a collection of "You Know You're From Denver When" punchlines.

But fortunately, there are an infinite number of ways to answer that question.

For our latest batch, we culled responses from a vintage Facebook post on their favorite ways to finish this sentence.

We have a feeling longtime Denverites and relative newcomers alike will be able to relate — although maybe to different items.

Count down our ten photo-illustrated favorites below.

Number 10: You know you're from Denver when...you refer to a certain art piece as "the dancing aliens."

Number 9: You know you're from Denver when...you still call the Broncos' stadium "Mile High Stadium."

Number 8: You know you're from Denver when...you know the Blue Bonnet isn't a hat shop.

Number 7: You know you're from Denver when...it's been sunny all day, but you know it's about time to go home from work because it started raining.

Number 6: You know you're from Denver when...you've gone all the way downtown from the burbs to buy a hard-to-find album at Wax-Trax.

Number 5: You know you're from Denver when...you laugh at skiing tourists from TX wearing hideous, brightly colored jumpsuits.

Number 4: You know you're from Denver when...80% of your snowfall happens in spring.

Number 3: You know you're from Denver when...as a kid, you wanted to be a Casa Bonita swan diver when you grew up.

Number 2: You know you're from Denver when...you spent a lot of time feeding geese at Wash Park.

Number 1: You know you're from Denver when...you get disgusted at someone wearing Oakland Raiders crap!
