    Seashells and Balloons

    See the link for a JSOnline article about Ahman Green's fumbling problem.

    http://www.jsonline.com/packer/news/sep04/260755.asp

    In the 7th paragraph, the author uses the phrase "Seashells and Balloons":

    "While a lot of Packers deal with their critics, Green is barely a talker - even when everything is seashells and balloons."

    What the hell does that mean? Is this an example of a wierd Sconnie dialect, like 'bubbler"?

    I'm not sure Milwaukee counts the same as the rest of Wisconsin. For example, they refuse to call soda "pop", which is what the rest of Wisconsin calls it. They also only have "bubblers", not drinking fountains.

    So, Milwaukee has its own little dialect. They also say "Muh-Waukee", not "Mil-waukee".

    Am I right, VKG4LFE?
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    We dont call soda pop over here as well. To me it sounds dumb to call it that since well no one down here is used to that term. :lol:

    It's true that in the South they call it all "Coke" which is strange to me. When I first got here and went to a restaurant, the waitress asked me what kind of Coke I wanted with my meal. I said, "so all you have is coke?" They all got a kick out of that.
