Being from Pittsburgh, we have quite a few words that we kind of "made up" over the years. I was wondering what other types of words or phrases people used in their own part of the world, or if us Pittsburghers aren't that goofy.
Gumband - rubber band
Pop - soda
Babushka - scarf old ladies wear on thier heads
Chipped ham - thinly sliced ham
Jumbo - bologna
Hunky hand grenade - hungarian stuffed cabbage rolls
Jimmies - chocolate or colored sprinkles you put on ice cream
Nighturn - working a 11pm-7am shift
Firehall wedding - many local volunteer fire stations have halls they rent
Riggi-Chiggi-Piggy - typical meal at a wedding. Rigatoni, fried chicken, and hunky hand grenades (see above)
Wedgie - basically an italian hoagie that is made in a pizza dough and folded over
Yinz - instead of saying "you all"
And of course, Stillers - Pittsburgh Steelers
I'm sure GarnettPalmetto will have a few more.
