Past Words of the Day

A dessert made of bananas and rum, served over vanilla ice cream.

A pervasive New York City urban legend tells of infant alligators brought back from Florida vacations and subsequently flushed down toilets only to form scattered colonies of full-grown alligators thriving beneath the city streets. Some versions describe the alligators as albino, having lost their pigment from living in the dark sewers for generations.

SLUT stands for South Lake Union Transit. It was added at part of mass transit in Seattle a couple of years ago but everybody kind of thinks it's a joke because the trolley doesn't really "go" anywhere.

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.

A nickname for Cincinnati in recognition of its former status as a major pork industry center.
