Quote of the Day

"Last night, I plopped down to watch sitcoms on TV. I caught one on ABC called Happy Endings. It's a sitcom about friends living in Chicago. It's obviously shot on a soundstage with a couple Chicago exteriors and they pepper the script with a few random Chicagoisms like "Bucktown." But for every obvious one, they throw in a curveball like "Lake Mich" instead of Lake Michigan. I've lived in the area all my life and never heard that shortening. Now, to be fair, I'm not fluent in new Chicago douchebag so shortening Lake Michigan could be all the rage right now." —Justin Kaufmann [WBEZ]
