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".

A person so transfixed by gambling machines that he or she becomes virtually oblivious to the rest of the world.

A plate of half chicken tenders and half french fries.

1. Constructed in 1969, the World's Largest Six Pack belongs to the City Brewery in La Crosse, Wisconsin. According to the sign in front of the six pack, the six "beers" contain a total of 22,220 barrels of beer, which is 688,200 gallons. This is enough to fill 7,340,796 cans. Also, placed end-to-end, these beer cans would run 565 miles long. Even more amazing, the World's Largest Six Pack would provide a single person a six pack daily for 3,351 years. Wow!

2. The World's Largest Six is La Crosse's claim to fame. Beer is the city's lifeblood, which is evident every weekend on 3rd Street--the main bar area of its downtown.

She-had-a-boy-again is a play on the Sheboygan's name. I heard of this recently when speaking with a friend of mine who's a Sheboygan native. As far as my friend knows, the meaning doesn't go any deeper than the phonetic relationship.
