If it's Christmas in Utah by omelets4sqwerls If it's Christmas in Utah by omelets4sqwerls
Ya, so it's a little late. But really, it doesnt have to be Christmas to see thest things. I think most people will need me to explain. Most of these are Mormon jokes, so I LOVE them :aww:

Umm... sorry about my crap-for-crap drawings. I was rushed to finish them soon.



12 NEW WALMARTS:
Ya, there have been a lot of new Wal Marts lately. (I'm so mean to that squirrel...)

11 SISTERS QUILTING:
In the Mormon church, all the women are called sisters. It's stereotipical that Mormons make quilts, but it's true (I think I only have one blanket that's not home made ^^;)

10 PERCENT TITHING:
10% of what we made we give to the church, sortta like the Catholic collecting plate, I think.

9 CLOSED OFFRAMPS:
There was a lot of construction going on, especially a few years ago, and a lot of offramps were closed.

8 SPECIAL SPIRITS:
Usually the person you merry or want to merry is that special spirit.

7 BOMBING SEAGULLS:
No kidding, they are all over the place.

6 KIDS AND COUNTING:
It's a fact. Mormons just have big families. Deal with it.

5 OH MY HECKS:
Mormons don't cuss, and this is one of the popular replacement curses.

4 ORANGE BARRELS:
Dude! These are practically the state tree! They are EVERYWHERE! (ya, thats why the squirrel is in it, cause I was thinking about how it's "a tree"... sorry it's so lame)

3 JELLO SALADS:
You cant have a feast without jello salad. It's just not natural. (umm... dont ask me why he's in the jello. I really dont know)

2 BIKING ELDERS:
A lot of missionaries, people who spread the gospel, ride bikes around. The men are called Elders, and it's really easy to spot them because no other guy in a white shirt and tie ride their bikes in twos.

POPCORN POPPING ON THE APRICOT TREE:
From when you are a kid to the age of 12 you are in a program calles Primary for sunday school. You learn a lot of songs in Primary, but the most popular is "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree." There are even fun hand motions to go with the song :aww:


Umm... MORMON PRIDE!!!

As a fellow Utahn, you are going to see A LOT more than four orange barrels. (They very well may be the only things in the state that reproduce faster than us LDS.)

And then my dad will tell me to knock it off, because my (four) siblings and I already mess up Christmas carols as it is. xD

This is the only version of 12 days of christmas I can stand! I moved to Utah 5 years ago and the first time we heard it we were just dying, it's soo funny! I think it's good to ba able to poke a little fun at ourselves, huh ^^ Very cute illustrations, especially the squirrel in the jello!

Yay! This was on the Traffic Jamzz CD our family got in 1999 just before we moved out. Except #12 had to do with the former Mayor of SLC. Is this an updated version? Has there been a noticable increase in Walmarts in UT?
Reply
:iconomelets4sqwerls:
omelets4sqwerls Featured By Owner May 27, 2006
-shrugs- Might have been updated. I heard this on the radio one day, so I wrote it down.

Maybe a different group sang it... but that's kinda odd.

But yes, There are a lot more Walmarts in UT than anywhere else I have been. Dunno why that is.

:iconroguedragon:
RogueDragon Featured By Owner May 28, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, the version I know dates back to 1999 and Dee Dee Coridini (no idea how to spell her name) is most likely no longer in office and that particular controversey old news.

WalMarts like going were families are.

Yay! This made me laugh my head off.

It also reminds me of Latter-Day Night Live, Biscuit.

"Have you ever noticed you Utah state bird? The California Seagull. Have you ever noticed the Utah state tree? The Colorado blue spruce. Yepp, it we are lucky we might see the State bird, the California Seagull perched in the Utah state tree, the Colorado blue spruce!"

LOL, Yay for Utah!
