Big photos below.
Over the years, we've had a lot of fun collecting "You know you're from Colorado when" punchlines.

But then we wondered: What would happen if we turned that concept on its head and answered the question, "How you know when someone is NOT from Colorado?"

Below, see our top ten. If you're from Colorado, you should understand them. If you aren't -- well, at least you'll know ten things not to do.

Number 10: You know you're NOT from Colorado when....

Continue to keep counting down our top ten "You know you're NOT from Colorado when" punchlines.

You know you are not from Colorado because when you lived there Westword was cutting edge.

If you own a ball gown as an adult. If, as a female in winter, your choice of attire to go out to a decent dinner is anything fancier than your nice, dark, jeans. If driving in one inch of snow results in you driving 15 miles under the speed limit at 2p.m. on a Sunday. If you need to be in full makeup and hairspray to go to the grocery store. If you store your flip flops away for the winter. If you don't pronounce our state ColoRADo. If you mispronounce Arvada or Westminster.

You're not from Colorado if an elk or deer crossing entices you to stop in the middle of the road for an impromptu photo shoot with the family.

You're not from Colorado if you put the brakes on mid-way up an icy hill. Or if you think a rear-wheel drive SUV is "safer" in snow and ice.

If you think "Green Chili" is when the red chili goes bad or that "smothered" means put a nice cream style gravy on your breakfast... you might not be from these parts.

You think it's going to be warm Memorial Weekend. You think Pena is a type of tree? You think Aspen is cool. You don't miss the Rainbow Music Hall. You think Green Chili is a salsa. You didn't realize Stephen King wasn't joking when he wrote that God's Chosen Ones live in Boulder. You think jeans are for Friday. You leave your house and don't go back for your sunglasses because it's... You think "Menver" is an exaggeration. (Too many dicks on the dance floor.) You think Cin City is in Vegas You turn sheet white coming out of the Tunnel in winter. You hate Mexicans You don't morn the old Mile High from time to time. You don't look at Highlands Ranch with disgust. You don't know the secret handshake. You can't tell a spruce from a pine from a fir tree.
