The area of Pennsylvania, generally east and south of Pittsburgh in the Appalachian Mountain chain, that behaves more like Appalachia than the affluent East. Pennsyltucky is characterized by a poorish white population, mountain living, and a lack of cultural and ethnic diversity. It is a portmanteu of PENNSYLvania and KenTUCKY, the former state showing its mid-Atlantic location and the latter its poor ethnic white makeup. It is worth noting that Pennsylvania and Kentucky have no common border, so the term differs from more common locutions like "Illiana" or "Ark-La-Tex."
-- "Did you know that Vice President Joe Biden coined the term Pennsyltucky?"
-- Actually the term was in use over ten years ago, but Biden reactivated it to refer to a distinct geographical and ethnic bloc within Pennsylvania -- a bloc that Donald Trump would probably have to win to take all of Pennsylvania in the 2016 Presidential election."

Utah fry sauce (also "fry sauce") is a mixture of mayonnaise and ketchup in a 2:1 ratio generally meant for dipping french fries and onion rings, although it can be put on hamburgers. It is attributed to the Utah-based fast-food chain Arctic Circle ca. 1948. However, it also resembles a simplified version of pre-existing Thousand Island dressing. According to Wikipedia, similar sauces are widely known elsewhere, including "mayoketchup" in Puerto Rico, "Burger Sauce," "Pink Sauce" (also "Salsa Rosada" in S. American countries), even "Cockteilsauce."

"Economic moat" is a term coined by investor Warren Buffet. It means how susceptible a company is to competition by other companies. Coca-Cola and Phillip Morris (Marlboro cigarettes) are companies with wide economic moats because of the popularity and consumer loyalty of their marquee brands. Boeing has a narrow but deep economic moat because its 777 and 787 aircraft are not subject to immediate displacement, but companies like Airbus and Bombardier could play catch-up over the course of several years by developing similar models that would threaten their primacy. That would close the moat.
-- "Give me an example of a company with a wide economic moat."

-- "The local water company, because no competitor can rush right in with a distribution system (pipes)."

-- "Besides, who else is gonna fill that moat? lol."
