Is This The Most Unique Slang Term In Minnesota?
There are a lot of slang terms we hear in Minnesota that might confuse a lot of people from across the country. “Uff Da” is the first one that came to mind for me. But which Minnesota slang term is the most unique?
Mental Floss just put together a list of the most unique slang terms in every state, and Minnesota’s isn’t too surprising:
Amusingly, the website defines that as “a way to agree with something.” You betcha that’s what it means! Although I’ll be honest, I honestly can’t remember the last time I’ve heard someone use that phrase without being ironic. Maybe that’s just me?
Slang terms for our neighboring states include “Uff Da” for North Dakota and “Ope” for Wisconsin (both of which we could also claim for ourselves), “Pork Queen” for Iowa, and “Kattywampus” for South Dakota.
The full list is definitely worth a look, because I’m definitely using Washington’s “Pre-Funk” the next time I’m tailgating.
