Alaskan Humor

March 1, 2013

If you have been following along with my journey from Montana to Alaska, you know it is a long and bumpy trip. Today I decided we all need a rest stop, and a bit of fun. I’ll be back next week to take you farther north to Alaska.

Have a happy week, and remember to laugh a little.



You know the words haw and gee, mean left and right.

You know mush, isn’t what you eat for breakfast, but words yelled at your dog team.

Your favorite rhyme is –Way up north where the huskies go, don’t you eat the yellow snow

You refer to the continental US as the lower 48

You think the lower 48 is a dangerous place to visit.

You know how to dance in your bunny boots.

You know that bunny boots are those huge white boots Alaskans wear in the winter

When you hear the words “Break-up” you aren’t worried it’s a marriage, just the end of winter.

You know a tail-dragger is an airplane, not a bad day at work

When someone says they’re going outside, you know they mean leaving Alaska

You know if you’re driving out of state you need your passport

You think the opening of moose season is a national holiday

Salmon is not a delicacy, it’s a staple

You think the four major food groups are: moose, caribou, beer, and salmon

A traffic jam is ten cars waiting for a moose to cross the road

You know the phrase “The kings are running” has nothing to do with royalty, but another salmon run.


Congratulations–You are now an honorary Alaskan Sourdough if you actually get these jokes.
