Gapers Block

Another "Shit Chicagoans Say" video was just released, just a little behind that other "Shit Chicagoans Say" video. If you're a North Sider, this one probably sounds more like it to you.

We had a "You might be a Chicagoan if..." thread in Fuel back in 2007; it's interesting to see how many of the bits from that thread showed up in both of these.
