Past Words of the Day

Pimento cheese, a popular local snack-food/condiment, often eaten in a sandwich on white bread with mayo.

A nickname for the Dinkytown area that is earned by the many rowdy college kids that live in the neighborhood.

Coffee laced with chicory. Rumored to have originated in New Orleans during the Civil War, when the city was under a federal blockade and could not import enough coffee, which necessitated blending the coffee with chicory root. Chicory is added to coffee in other parts of the world, including Madras and Belgium. Made famous at Cafe Du Monde on Jackson Square.

Big Papi is the nickname for superstar DH for the Red Sox, David Ortiz. Big Papi has been a media darling in Boston, as he has always been much friendlier than unpredictable long-time teammate, Manny Ramirez, who is now with the Dodgers. Ortiz is a native of the Dominican Republic.

1. (noun) Wisconsin ATM network founded in the mid-1970s. TYME is an acronym for "Take Your Money Everywhere" and was rolled out with a mascot named Annie Tyme.

2. Tyme is a brand name of ATM services that has machines throughout the state of Wisconsin. Many locals in Milwaukee learned what a "Tyme Machine" was before knowing what an ATM was. Even worse, many locals don't even use the word ATM at all, making an ATM search often frustrating for visitors. "Oh, you mean a Tyme Machine?" Also, when Milwaukee natives search for ATMs elsewhere, the locals think they're looking for a "time machine." This does not help our reputation!

3. An ATM or Cash Machine in Milwaukee-speak. If strangers are around and they hear you say, "I need to go to the Tyme Machine", you might get some odd looks as they think you're referring to a time travel machine like in the movie Back to the Future.
