    I would agree. FIB is the insult, Flatlander is a kindler, gentler swat. And, really, driving south on 55 or 57 can be so flat and boring, I guess.

    And Minnesotans are "puddle jumpers", even though Wisconsin has more lakes (some say).

    And it is Wisconsinite...

    What did I forget? Oh, someone from the Upper Peninsula of Mich. is a Yooper, but that's not an insult, dontcha know.

    I once did the Chicago to Rock Island drive. It was one of the most boring, flat, featureless drives I ever experienced.

    I can see "Flatlander" being an insult...

    Western NY might call itself hot dog county but once those folks discover Michigans, they will soon realize who really should own that name !

    So the debate simply comes down to " with or without"; buried or on top" or Clare's vs Mc Sweeney's vs Ronnie's vs ??

    But I will second the motion about Wegman's !!

    Never been to a Wegmans, but it's hard to imagine this statement not being true. Price Chopper is so bad they're trying to rebrand as "Market 32" to escape their own reputation!

    When I was a kid, Market Basket was the smaller Acme Market. Acme is out of Pennsylvania but closed all their NY stores about 40 years ago.
