Illinois’ Top Slang Word Makes Us Sound Like a Bunch of Drug Addicts
For the last couple of months, Steve Shannon and I have been expanding our vocabularies with a really fun segment that we like to call "Is Steve Stumped?"
I take a slang word from the Urban Dictionary and Steve has to tell the audience what he thinks the definition is; if he guesses incorrectly, then he's stumped...obviously. It's a fun way to learn new words and phrases; and make Steve sound totally uncool.
If I gave him the term "LSD," he probably would've guessed it correctly if it were the 70s; but it's not. It's 2018 and according to Mental Floss, the term "LSD" doesn't describe a once popular psychedelic drug, it's actually Illinois' top slang word that stands for Lake Shore Drive.
Other fun slang from around the Stateline include "Ope" for Wisconsin, "Pork Queen" from Iowa and Minnesota's "You betcha."
Have you ever used the term "LSD" before?
