A (laughable) nickname for Seattle. Seattle is perhaps more aptly described as the Gateway to the Pacific.
A reference to the three main stars on the Boston Celtics--Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen. The term was popularized by an ESPN commercial in which Scott Van Pelt is met with a barrage of potential nicknames from the "Big Three" themselves. After hearing a bunch of bizarre ones--and a lame one in the "Three Amigos"--Van Pelt simply silences them with the genius "Boston Three Party".
A rodent that comprises an important segment of the fur trade in Louisiana but is generally considered a pest elsewhere.
A very unique term to New Orleans for the median of a street. The Spanish and French, who effectively split the city in two, could do business on the "neutral ground" of city streets.
A Purdue University student or alumni, or an alcoholic drink invented by Pittsburgh steelworkers consisting of some combination of beer and whiskey.
