The name of way too many streets in Atlanta. First of all, there's the main Peachtree-related drag, which changes its name every time locals get comfortable. Peachtree Road/Street/Industrial Boulevard. Are you kidding me?
Other Peachtree roadways include Peachtree Drive, Peachtree Circle, Peachtree Avenue. People say there are 71 Peachtree variations (and not the paltry 40 mentioned in another definition. Can we put a stop to this?
1. An adjective used to describe something that is Wisconsin-like, or a noun that simply means Wisconsinite. Wisconsinites are often called "Sconnies" outside of the state. The word is now gaining traction within Wisconsin as well, largely the result of the company "Sconnie Nation" that was founded by two UW-Madison students in their Lakeshore dorm room.
2. I beg to differ: my friends and I were using the term "Sconnie" during college in Madison in the 80's. I first heard it from a good friend who hailed from Oshkosh. He now lives in Seattle, and we bought some of the original Sconnie Nation sweatshirts several years ago and had a reunion, specifically to mourn the fact the WE didn't copyright the term. The Sconnie Nation owners can confirm this.
3. Although many naysayers are correct in saying that "Sconnie" is not a term often used by real Wisconsinites, it is certainly a legitimate term, as it is used in other states in reference to Wisconsinites. In Michigan, a Sconnie is someone from Wisconsin.
4. A bogus term made up to sell t-shirts. True Wisconsinites will confirm that no one from Wisconsin uses this term to refer to each other.
1. Mt. Horeble, or Mt. Horrible, is a derogatory name for the town, often invoked by local high schoolers to describe Mt. Horeb's alleged lackluster assets or traditional, closed mindset
2. I've lived in Mt. Horeb and I've never heard this nickname.
3. A playfully derogatory nickname for Mount Horeb.
SLUT stands for South Lake Union Transit. It was added at part of mass transit in Seattle a couple of years ago but everybody kind of thinks it's a joke because the trolley doesn't really "go" anywhere. It has since been renamed, the South Lake Union Streetcar (also called the Seattle Streetcar), for obvious reasons. Not quite as dynamic, if you ask me.
