  • This was a great conversation. Anyhow, Frisco sounds odd to me from a long way away. Sounds like the sort of thing Martin Ferguson would say.

  • Haha! That image has become a Wordie booby trap. ;-)

    I must confess that Cheese Was was borrowed/pinched from someone whom I've been nagging to join Wordie. No luck so far.

  • Actually, I think it was this image that was the proverbial straw for me. It's not coincidental that I added it to the puke bowl discussion.

    I may not like Cheez Whiz, but I love the phrase Cheese Was.

    March 7, 2008

  • Skipvia, you seem to have a visceral dislike for Cheese Was. Perhaps it was a traumatic event in your childhood....? ;-)

    March 7, 2008

  • Eew. I mean, eeewwwwww.

    March 7, 2008

  • Only for the most discerning Fluffya palates, skipvia. The rest of us prefer provolone or American.

    March 7, 2008

  • Cheez Whiz? On a chessesteak? Say it ain't so, reesetee...

    March 7, 2008

  • "Fluffya" is definitely a native pronunciation in some parts. And if you're ordering a cheesesteak, you don't even say cheesesteak. You say "One wit" for a cheesesteak with fried onions, "one wit-out" for a cheesesteak, no onions. "Whiz wit" is cheesesteak with Cheez Whiz and fried onions, and so on.

    Great. Now I'm hungry.

    March 6, 2008

  • Whenever I've been there (which isn't often), they just say cheesesteak, or steak sandwich. Anyway Fluffya is a much better pronunciation for that city's name.

    March 6, 2008

  • But they still say Philly Cheesesteak?

    March 6, 2008

  • I know native Philadelphians who can't stand "Philly" as a nickname for Philadelphia. I don't say it around them so as to avoid being socked in the kisser.

    March 6, 2008

  • I've always hated "frisco" and I have never been to San Francisco. I think it's just a lazy-ass abbreviation that doesn't sound right. Or even a lazy ass-abbreviation.

    I do like Bear Flanks, though. I guess it just sounds right. Also, I'm a bear.

    March 6, 2008

  • Is it because it sounds too much like Crisco? ;-)

    March 5, 2008

  • That's a cool example skipvia - Bear Flanks Alaska.

    March 5, 2008

  • I know what you mean, palooka. It's like when people call Fairbanks "Bear Flanks." Although, come to think of it, it kind of fits...

    March 5, 2008

  • Calling San Francisco "Frisco" is like calling New York City "Nork", or Chicago "Chica", or Kansas City "Cans City", or Houston "Hugh"", etc. We don't like it.

    March 5, 2008

  • A co-called nickname for the glorious city of San Francisco. Natives and those enamored of "The City" shudder and moan when they hear this vulgar term. It is not to be compared with such urban delights as The Big Apple. Its usage demonstrates that the speaker is utterly without class or sophistication; more properly an object of pity than derision.
