    Yooper?

    Okay, I may get blasted for this but....What is a Yooper? Or who? I am afraid that this one has gotten by me. Must be a regional expression.
    Anyone help?

    I happen to be a "yooper" myself. A yooper is anyone who lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Luckily I don't say "Oh hey dere, I'm just watching da Viking game." I would punch myself.

    I drove through the yoop a few times. I added a new word to my vocabulary there. "Pastie". Not sure what it is, but every mile there's another sign that they're selling Pasties.

    A pastie is basically just a huge, stuffed flaky crust thing stuffed with meat (allegedly ham or beef, but I have doubts). Usually they throw some type of cheese and vegetable-like substance in there, or whatever they can find in the refrigerator or medicine cabinet.

    When served with an entire bottle of ketchup (and powerful antitoxins), it's almost edible.

    You probably want to stay away from these things. Keep a stomach pump nearby if you are forced to eat one, and it couldn't hurt to keep some asprin nearby in case of cardiac arrest.
