Past Words of the Day

The Rhode Island version of "People's Court"; a tv show where real people have their cases heard...and broadcasted...from Providence Municipal Court. The show is hosted by Chief Judge Frank Caprio. Only in America can you become a pseudo-celebrity for getting a parking ticket.

Austin is known as "Spamtown" because it's the headquarters of Hormel Foods, the makers of Spam, the famous canned processed pork product.

Creek, river, stream, etc.

The technical definition is an adjective used to describe something as cheap or inferior. New Yorkers use it as a term encompassing all of the souvenirs sold in Times Square that tourists take home with them to remind them of their trip to New York City. (I mean, what else would you call a melamine ash tray shaped like a yellow taxi?) AKA kitsch. Individual items of schlock or kitsch are known as tchotchkes.

A bunch of crazies jumping into Lake Monona for the Polar Plunge

The Polar Plunge is an event for the benefit of the Special Olympics during which participants jump into a swimming hole in Lake Monona. Since the event takes place in late February (February 20th, 2010 at Olin Park), the lake is always frozen solid. Only the bravest (craziest) of souls dare jump. For many, sponsoring a "plunger" is the best way to participate in this very Wisconsinesque activity.
