    Careful, if you asked to get popped in Philly .. you might not like the experience.

          PLEASE USE THE PHILLYISM 'JAWN' IN A SENTENCE:

          "That wine was the Vin Jaune, dude!"

          I'm here all week...

              The weird thing is that I apparently use the wrong words for almost everything where I grew up.

              And it's really just a Sub, Philly.

                      Apparently living in the center of the universe causes brain damage... :-P
