    Some of them are definitely Pittsburgh-specific but I sure did smile at most of 'em! What about "I'm feeling ruchy"? I use that all the time!

    And remember, Intercourse, Blue Ball, and Bird In Hand are town names too!

    Oooooooooooooooh, the most important: If you are from Pennsylvania, you will automatically, no matter where you are, respond with a rousing shout and the appropriate response to:
