Pittsburgh

Pittsburghese

I was writing a plugin (for something else) and thought, wouldn't it be funny and easy to implement a plugin to translate pages in pittsburghese?  Voila!  One evening later, it is born.

 

I tell you, it is pretty funny reading my employer's web site (all staid content) but now interspersed with pittsburghese colloquisms.

Report Drivers

Did you know that you can now easily report good drivers, bad drivers, dangerous drivers-- even cute drivers!  Go to spotmouth.com and easily add your report.
Just as fun is reporting a driver, and seeing if you are ever reported. 
So head over to spotmouth and file that report!;)

Phillip's List of restaurants

Pizza Delivered is Adrian's (say it like Rocky would).  They have a pierogie pizza and lots of crazy stuff.  It's a take out /delivery place only.

Pizza-sit down place:  Sola.  Minus a point for not having beer

I thought this was super funny!  It illustrates a good understanding of google adsense.

Back in the day (early 90's), I co-founded a messenger company. We eventually merged with Jet Messenger

At this point in time, the PUC did not allow delivery of packages by motorized vehicles unless you had a "PUC License."  Environmentalism was a beginning trend so I thought of the following copy in order to capitalize on this emerging trend while still minimizing the fact that we did not have a PUC license.

Chilling at Color Me Mine

Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority must be braindead and stupid

I just opened my monthly water and sewer bill.  Another $85.00 down the drain.  But included in my bill was a yellow paper that informed me that Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) has appointed Jordan Tax Service, Inc. ("Jordan") as Collector and the law firm of Goehring, Rutter & Boehm, P.C. "GRB" as Special Legal Counsel for the collection of delinquent water and sewer charges.
