We sure have some unique terms and phrases here in New England. I come from the Boston area, and when something is really good, we say it's "Wicked Good"..........errrr, that is pronounced "wickid" by the way.
My good friend Phil Thompson (who is known as PWT on the Scenes of Vermont Forums) is a true 100% born and farm raised man from rural VT. If he were to like this photo, for example, his response would be......
"Jeezum Crow, now THAT'S a good picture" errrrrrr, except picture would be pronounced "pitcher".
Here's an excerpt from Urban Dictionary:
Jeezum Crow:"A polite way to take the Lord's name in vein in rural Vermont".
Now an excerpt from "The Vermont Encyclopedia" by John J Duffy, Samuel B Hand, and Ralph H Orth:
"Jeezum Crow!" A colloquial exclamation frequently heard in Vermont and also in Northern New Hampshire and Maine. "Jeezum Crow" is a benign alternative to a common profanity. It expresses frustration or emphasis, as in "What.......a bunch of hippies are starting a commune in the woods? Jeezum Crow Mother, get me my shotgun!"
I only report the facts as I find them. :-)
