Ow...and then there are the "Brokaw" people who say "Ls" with the back of their throat. What is that?

That drives me nuts, and I don't know why!!! One of those mastercard commercials had one of the "smothered L" guys.

One pair of tickets: three hundred dohyars.

Icono: I agree completely. Gotta love that red splotch in eastern Wisconsin. I had a girlfriend from southwestern Wisconsin who never forgave me for not saying "water fountain". I have a hat that says "Bubbler" which I wear when I want to irritate all my Minnesotan friends.

Mistervague: I grew up in eastern Wisconsin, and now live in Minneapolis, and will confirm that in both places I "whip shiatties".
