Past Words of the Day

This is what 'water' sounds like when pronounced by a local Philadelphian.

A reference to Scottsdale's "upper-crusty" atmosphere.

Summer tourists who visit South Jersey beaches and boardwalks for a short time, usually not more than a day. The original "shoobies" brought what they needed for the day in shoeboxes.

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.

A quintessential Rhode Island treat, made with milk and coffee syrup. Believe it or not, coffee milk is in fact the official state beverage.
