Some Pittsburgh Humor

Image For most Americans, English is their first and primary language. While for those of us from Pittsburgh, English takes a back seat to Pittsburghese.

Some of us hate to admit it, but if you are from Pittsburgh or the surrounding area, you are guilty as sin when it comes to Pittsburgh slang.

Admit it right now. You know what dippy eggs are. Thorns are jaggers. In your opinion, nebby jerks need a swift kick in the face. You don’t vacuum, you run the sweeper. Do yinz want some pop? I don’t think I need to go any further.

Even if you manage to avoid saying Pittsburgh cliches, you have defiantly have a family member that speaks Pittsburghese quite fluently.
I recently started watched the Pittsburgh Dad videos, and it’s seriously ridiculous how hard he hits the nail on the head. I felt like I saw what would happen if you somehow merged most of my family members into one person, and then sent the monster you have created on one endless bitch spree.
I recognized just about every single little comment he managed to squeeze in. He didn’t just use a bunch of random slang words. He mentions everything from little hugs, to chipped ham, to of course Edgar Snyder.
If you really have a hankering to get your Pittsburgh humor fix, I highly recommend checking out the Pittsburgh Dad.
