Illinois’ Top Slang Word Definitely Not About Drugs
Outside of Illinois, you may think the person is talking about a drug. Honestly, I think if you live outside Chicago you'd think that.
I'm not really sure that this is truly the top slang word used in the Land Of Lincoln. I mentioned it to 3 co-workers, all lifelong residents of Illinois, and they'd never heard of it. I was surprised that one of those co-workers is from the Chicago burbs and when I said what it was, she said she'd never heard it before. I said the slang word is "LSD" and she just looked at me with a blank stare.

Really, LSD for Lakeshore Drive? That can't be our top slang word. What word do you think it more likely Illinois' top slang word?
