Past Words of the Day

1. Taking place the night before Halloween, youngsters take the opportunity to hurl foodstuffs (like eggs and cabbage, hence the name) at people and houses. Mischief Night seems quite descriptive, but Bostonians like to have their own names for things.

2. October 30th, the night before Halloween; elsewhere known as "mischief night".

Slang for the beer Milwaukee's Best.

A style of house with a center hallway running from the front door to the back door that you "could fire a shotgun through".

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.

People jokingly refer to Cambridge as the "People's Republic" because of its left-leaning residents.
