In Northern Colorado, dude, man, and guys are all gender/age/race neutral. Also boy/girl is used far more often than men/women.

I lived in southern California for about seven years and the list of things that "dude" refers to includes your shoes, the weather, your car, the burger you're eating, and ennui.

Yeah, we get a lot of that since Californians have been flocking here for years.

Hello folks!

Let me apologize in advance, I'm on a strictly English keyboard so I can't bang in the accents as required.  Anyway!  What Quark-Antiquark was hinting at, but never really got into, was les sacres.  It's a very unique form of cussing unique to la belle province, where all the cusswords are items pertaining to Catholic faith and ritual.  There's a lot of different words, though they all broadly translate to "fuckin'!" and you can organize them however you want, making for individualized, very personal forms of extremely (literally!) profane swearing.

"Calice d'ostie de bapteme d'un maudit chien-sale" I'd probably translate as "Goddamn motherfuckin' dog!" but is, literally, "Chalice of a host of a baptismal font of a damned dirty dog,"  Ah, Quebec!  (There are, as an aside, many, many 'gosh darn!' equivalents of course.)

And, similar to Montrith's anecdote, my mother was fond of saying, "Avance, Hercule," as a sort of joke and a commentary on redundant instructions.  As her explanation went, this was an instruction you'd give your horse were it named Hercules.  "Forward!"  However, "Hercule" sounds very similar to "recule", or "reverse".  So you'd be giving contradictory orders to your horse unless you enunciated clearly.  Mom jokes!

When I went to Philmont Scout Ranch as a young Boy Scout, we called the chipmunks/ground squirrels "minibears".

In North Carolina, a nickname for groundhogs is "whistlepigs". This knowledge has led me to make questionable whiskey purchases.

Maybe not slang, but the habit of communicating distance via time. The store isn't 10 miles away, its 15 minutes away.

Yoopers and trolls - slang for people who live in the upper and lower peninsulas, respectively.

At my old college, we used to call messing around on the internet as "squidding".

"You doing anything tonight?"
"Nah. Probably just gonna stay in and squid."

In Philly, and we really do call most anything "jawn." i.e. "Hand me that jawn."

See also Rap Snacks, which are also jawns, and which I know exist outside the city but I have not seen.

Personally, otherwise, I don't speak with a philly accent, but there is a very specific way you would say "hoagie" if you were from here, and it's basically "heauxgie."

Subs don't exist.

Don't be so negative, Jack.

That said, it must be weird living in a city that dominant.
