It's not Bmore, it's Bawlmer, Hon!
You Know You're From Maryland If You Remember These, Hon...
The longer you have been living in Maryland the more of these you will know--or remember, if you think about it. We found them in one of those pervasive multi-forwarded emails (actually before the popularity of Facebook, where you will likely find a list like this today).
