The DQ in my town in Colorado is just an ice cream drive through. No steak fingers for me.

The DQs in Texas don’t have chocolate soft serve, which struck me as weird when I moved here from Pittsburgh. Back up north it was routine to order a “twist cone with rainbow jimmies.”

Oh my god I can hear that order in a thick Pittsburgh accent and it's killing me. Are "rainbow jimmies" sprinkles or multi-colored french fries?

Ex-Denton-TX here. I've had the phrase "shit fire and save the matches" stuck in my head lately.

I don't believe I've heard "hotter'n a two puckered billy goat" elsewhere but I don't get out much.

The ten-ish that used to share a practice space call getting drunk "ripplecocked." I think that's just a that room thing. I like it.

If you're from Texas and haven't seen any of the Tuna, TX-es do it. It's 60-ish minutes of this stuff.

Just heard "how that mouth do?", meaning asking somebody about their oral sex proficiency.

Can't tell if I'm amused or vaguely disgusted.

From Sydney:

Hearn - A hearn is like an Australian jock. As in "No don't go down there, there are a bunch of hearns and they are drunk", or "He's a bit of a hearn but a nice guy". Although there is some crossover, a hearn is not be confused with a....

Westie - This used to mean something like Hesher, but now means anyone living in the western suburbs of Sydney.

Ace TV! - An extremely positive affirmation, as in "Awesome!", or "Yay I cannot wait to do this!" etc.

Pike - A verb, meaning to not do something because one simply cannot be bothered. As in "I meant to see your band last weekend but I piked", which means that I did not see your band because I was feeling to lazy at the time. Basically it is a term used to confess that one lacked the sufficient motivation for doing something. This one does not travel well, when friends in England asked me if I was going to a house party and I told then that "I was piking", they thought that I was going fishing. A great t-shirt was going around a while back, instead of "Nike - Just Do It", "Pike - Just Do Nothing".

Everything gets shortened. "Opening the pressies after some schooeys around the the barbie with the rellies on chrissy arvo", etc.

Cornhole. That's what everyone in Ohio calls that crappy tailgate game where you toss bean bags at an opponent's slightly slanted board with a hole in it. Now that I've left home, I get only dirty looks and confused stares when I proposition someone for a round of cornhole. I guess people outside of Ohio just call it "bean bags." Pretty boring-ass name, if you ask me.

It's been called cornhole everywhere I've lived in the last 10 years, including Tennessee, Montana, Colorado, and Michigan.

Did a bit of Wikipedia detective work, you guys are right. Apparently, "bean bags" is, in this case, the regional slang. Seems to be a Chicago-area thing. Feels good to know that others are out there cornholing alongside me. Why would Cook County want to do away with such a great game name?

Woo Woo Woo - And so on and so forth; yadda yadda yadda; blah blah blah...

I love this. Today I heard two dudes have a conversation peppered with "woo woo woos" and it was killing me. "I was talkin' to this girl you know woo woo woo and she was talkin about going to a hookah bar and I ain't never been to one woo woo woo and she was fine as hell woo woo woo..." swear to fucking God it was like that for minutes. Cracked my shit up.

"Y'uns" is apparently the Pittsburgh version of "Y'all."

And they call their little chocolate cakes, "Gobs."

"chacho", similar to english "chooch" is the name a "chacho" gives to the other guy in the conversation. Substitute to kid, man, guy, dude, sir.

Chacho, incredible.

New Zealand cross-reference:

Seby wrote:From Sydney:

Hearn - A hearn is like an Australian jock. - Nope, never heard this word down here

Westie - This used to mean something like Hesher, but now means anyone living in the western suburbs of Sydney. - The term is understood but in NZ the hesher is universally called a bogan.

Ace TV! - An extremely positive affirmation, as in "Awesome!", or "Yay I cannot wait to do this!" etc. sounds like a semi-ironic local thing.

Pike - A verb, meaning to not do something because one simply cannot be bothered. - Yes, this word is commonly used in NZ also

Everything gets shortened. "Opening the pressies after some schooeys around the the barbie with the rellies on chrissy arvo", etc. - yes to all that except the schooeys

No, not a place to buy balloons or streamers or birthday candles, but the Pure Michigan® name for a package liquor/cigarettes/convenience store.


I thought this was universal until I moved to Chicago and found a party store that sold balloons and paper hats and shit.

Ha, so weird. I've lived here all my thirty years, worked a range of white- and blue-collar jobs, and have literally never encountered "hearn" or "Ace TV". Maybe my dad would know what a hearn is, I'll check.

Us westies have many words for Bondi-dwellers but few of them are unique to the region.
