Slang for High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Usually applied after a shortened version of the school's name so Vincent becomes "V House," Washington becomes "Wash House" and Bay View becomes "View House," etc.

1. A town in NE Wisconsin which so backwards and conservative that it takes credibility away from decent Wisconsin cities like Milwaukee, Madison and La Crosse.

2. A place for people from Illinois and Minnesota to confirm their stereotypes of Wisconsinites as being fat, drunken, deer-hunting dolts.

3. Allegedly a city of 100,000 which doesn't even have as much to do as a town 1/10th of that size.

4. A "city" whose only saving grace is a football team which it wouldn't even be able to have if not for the support of a REAL city 114 miles to the south.

5. A place where Green Acres, Andy Griffith and Hee Haw are considered cultural programming.

6. A town with a laundry list of failed business ventures because its people refuse to take part in anything that doesn't involve drinking, bowling, killing animals, the Packers, and more drinking.

7. A place that hasn't changed in over 20 years because anyone who tries to bring in new ideas is accused of being an elitist who wants to "Milwaukeeize" the city.

8. A colony of paranoid residents who have an irrational fear of anyone who's not a white, redneck townie. Especially if said person is from Milwaukee or Chicago.

9. A town with an allegedly great school system, yet a surprisingly significant number of residents who apparently don't know what side of the civil war Wisconsin was on and fly the rebel flag from their pick-up trucks.

An allegedly world-class city with a nice skyline and not much else. Claims to be progressive even though it has a shrinking minority population (due to gentrification) and a notoriously corrupt government. Tries to compete with actual world-class cities such as New York and London, but fails miserably giving it an inferirotiy complex. This causes Chicago residents to lash out at other nearby cities such as Detroit, Milwaukee and St. Louis to justify its existence.
Thanks to Mayor Daley's gentrification kick, I could no longer afford to live in Chicago.
