#77: You are one of the guys trying to jump a ramp with his garden tractor, on America's Funniest Videos.
#78: You don't know why there isn't a three page fold out section in LAGC magazine, like there is in Playboy.

Thanks for the laughs. This has been great. It will take a bit of work, but they can all be compiled into a single list. Maybe we can get more than a hundred. Keep them coming.

johndeereelfman - You have it down bud and too funny. Sure a lot of laughs guys!!!!:thumbs:

How about:
#101: When you give up maple syrup for transaxle fluid on your pancakes.
#102: When Polyurea Grease smells better than your wife's perfume.
#103: When your tractor gets several sets of new tires long before your own truck or car.
#104: When you'd rather watch the game in the garage setting on the tractor than in the living room recliner.
#105: When you start making excuses to friends and family to leave early in order to spend more time with your tractors.
#106: When you'd rather look at the pictures in your tractor's Service Manual than in a Playboy.
#107: When you begin to justify why the lawn needs mowing three times in one afternoon.
#108: When the guy behind the parts counter knows you better than your wife.

Alright, let's see how many more we can do. Let's take it to the limit:
#109: You make three trips to the hardware store every Saturday, just to buy nuts, bolts, and washers, because there always seems to be a bolt you overlooked.
#110: Three hours of plowing is better than making love with your wife all night long.
#111: If you can't talk about garden tractors, then you have nothing to say.
#112: You're willing to spend a night in jail, for taking out some guy that had the guts to touch your tractor.
#113: You send friends and family Christmas cards, of you and your family sitting on tractors.
#114: You moved your recliner from in front of the tv, to now sitting in front of the computer.
#115: You have a picture of your tractor collection, hanging above your bed.
#116: You only invite your friends over to brag about your tractor collection.
#117: You count how many people are checking out your tractors, while heading to a tractor show.
#118: While at a tractor show, you get frustrated when somebody has more tractors than you.
#119: Your moto in life is: He who dies with the most toys, wins!
#120: Your family picture album consists of nothing but garden tractors.
#121: You have a decal on the back window of your truck, of a guy peeing on the competitors brand logo, and flipping the bird.
#122: The mud flaps on your truck or RV match that of your favorite brand of tractors.
#123: You have your favorite brand of tractor, printed on your return address labels.
#124: You use all of your vacation days for nothing but tractor shows.
#125: You think Brandon and Kate should have thier own star in Hollywood.
#126: Your wife's wash line doubles as an outside spray booth.
#127: You read the same LAGC magazine five times, and get mad when somebody wants to talk to you before you're through reading the same article twice.
#128: You save every issue of LAGC magazine, and get really mad when you can't find it, or find out that your wife through it out.
#129: You map out a route for the tractor show, but not for the family vacation.
#130: You have one of your garden tractors as a coffee table in your living room.
