Another day, another trending hashtag, this time it’s all about the Philadelphia region.

If you’ve perused Twitter in the past 24 hours, you’ve probably noticed a frenzy of poll questions calling out to Twitter communities in Philly and New Jersey. The topic: Do you belong there, and if so, can you prove it?

That’s what the tags #PhillyVerificationQuestions and #JerseyVerificationQuestions are doing. The trend started late Wednesday, with poll questions such as: How do you alert a SEPTA bus driver when your stop is coming up? What do you do when you pull into a Jersey gas station? How do you explain “jawn”? And what do you save your parking space with? (We couldn’t help but interject, so we posted a few.)

Equal parts hilarious, weird, and informative (seriously, how do you alert a SEPTA driver when your stop is coming up?), it’s everything we’ve come to love about our people.

At present, there’s not much traction behind #DelawareVerificationQuestions — but it’s not too late. (Hit it, Wilmington!).
