Past Words of the Day

An old nickname for Knoxville for its former prominence in the textile industry. At one point Knoxville had 20 textile mills, but they started to close in the 1950's.

A stew-like dish made from beans, beer, pork, peppers.

Mr. Hill is a hilarious local comedian who does THE best impression of President Obama. You can catch his impression on YouTube during interviews with the local Milwaukee press.

A term referring to the Ironman Wisconsin Triathlon held the Sunday after Labor Day in Madison, WI. Most people refer to an Ironman as an "IM." Athletes refer to this particular Ironman as "IMOO," because they often pass cows on the bike route, which is along many country roads. IM Wisconsin embraced this idea and the 2008 Finisher Medals were in the shape of a cow.

1. The colored (orange, yellow and green) metal chairs outside at the Memorial Union Terrace. You can buy replica terrace chairs in the store inside the union in red and white, but not in the colors outside (though students have been known to steal the real ones as college souvenirs to remember happy times drinking and socializing on the terrace). People have gotten "busted" for having them out on porches and balconies where their thievery is on display.

2. For me, the chairs represent the center of the Universe. I have traveled all over the world and have met people who know the chairs. Just this last weekend I introduced my 8 year old to the chairs. We relaxed in them and enjoyed a cool beverage while watching the boats on the lake and listening to reggae.

3. The terrace chairs represent some of my fondest memories at UW. I spent many a day sitting in them, looking out over the lake and pretending to study. The terrace chairs are quintessentially Madison.

4. Sure, the terrace chairs are emblematic of UW-Madison, and perhaps Madison as a whole, but nobody ever assesses their comfort. I find them quite uncomfortable.
