Ongoing audio thread Show more
As an occasionally proud member of the Pittsburgh Diaspora, I’m doing a thread of words or phrases you will hear when subjected to our presence. We are legion, n’at
I will attempt to post a few tonight, and then on a regular basis when the Black & Gold pride attempts to take hold of me
I swear I do not sound like this unless I am extremely drunk. It is entirely too easy to let the yinzer inside escape if you don’t keep a constant vigil on it

@kevinwhipsnowed ooh I missed these but they're real good, I knew how some of them would sound before I heard them because they're the same here
@Louisa It’s the worst accent besides scouser. It haunts me, following me around like a spectre!
@kevinwhipsnowed here the thing though: nah, it's fine
@kevinwhipsnowed this is the first one that made me mad
@pig strap in and grab a helmet my friend, it’s about to get a whole lot worse (we are terrible)
@pig it’s like a language used only by magicians to cast their spells and occlude arcane knowledge....but for dummies
@kevinwhipsnowed *casts a spell called "Create River"*
@pig we are a riddle wrapped in an enigma topped by a salad with french fries and shredded cheese
@kevinwhipsnowed you're just making them up now
@Louisa man oh man, this is just the tip of the incomprehensible iceberg
@kevinwhipsnowed what "up"?
@pig isn't it obvious? I have to 'red up' the house before the guests arrive
@kevinwhipsnowed it's not the most obvious thing, no
@pig I'm like doing a public service or something 😉
The verbal phrase “redd up” (also seen as “red up,” “ret up,” and even “rid up”) has its roots in a Middle English verb redden, which meant to rescue or free from, or to clear. Today, “redd up” means to clear an area or make it tidy.
I would have never guessed that in a million years
@kevinwhipsnowed people say that here too and I will never accept it
@Louisa stand firm Louisa ✊
@kevinwhipsnowed 1. I am getting irrationally angry at this the longer it goes on but
2. Now all I can think about is "rustled jimmies" meme and Im cracking up
1. we are a cursed people
2. okay, that's pretty funny
@kevinwhipsnowed too many Rs in this pronunciation, too elitist
@Louisa not the critique I was expecting on this one at all
@kevinwhipsnowed I 100% expected "s'mawnin'" like you'd get here
@Louisa that sounds worse than mine, how is that possible?
@kevinwhipsnowed that's Philly baby
@kevinwhipsnowed omg i didn’t know of this one 😂😭
@alana it's my favourite one!
A small, private instance where a few cryptids may roam and play. Seek, but fear. The whole thing was birthed in a Denny's in 2016.
