Bluecifer is a nickname for the devil-eyed blue mustang sculpture by Denver's airport.

1. The colored (orange, yellow and green) metal chairs outside at the Memorial Union Terrace. You can buy replica terrace chairs in the store inside the union in red and white, but not in the colors outside (though students have been known to steal the real ones as college souvenirs to remember happy times drinking and socializing on the terrace). People have gotten "busted" for having them out on porches and balconies where their thievery is on display.

2. For me, the chairs represent the center of the Universe. I have traveled all over the world and have met people who know the chairs. Just this last weekend I introduced my 8 year old to the chairs. We relaxed in them and enjoyed a cool beverage while watching the boats on the lake and listening to reggae.

3. The terrace chairs represent some of my fondest memories at UW. I spent many a day sitting in them, looking out over the lake and pretending to study. The terrace chairs are quintessentially Madison.

4. Sure, the terrace chairs are emblematic of UW-Madison, and perhaps Madison as a whole, but nobody ever assesses their comfort. I find them quite uncomfortable.

The collective term for the New Orleans Saints fans, taken from the famous "Who Dat?" chant.

Brew/movie, relating to any number of theaters that serve beer. Popular ones are Kennedy School, Laurelhurst, Baghdad.

Found in old NYC neighborhoods, most famously and densely in Brooklyn, this is a term used for homes made from "brownstone," which is a brown sandstone. The Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood in Brooklyn has the most brownstones in NYC. Many people think of The Cosby Show's Huxtable family when they think of Brooklyn brownstones (as they lived in a traditional Brooklyn brownstone).
