Here's the top ten phrases you'll hear if you come to the Southcoast (brought to you by The Odyssey).

    Usually, wicked means something bad, but on the Southcoast it means "really".  Like, the wings at Busters are "wicked" good aren't they?!

    Jimmies are chocolate sprinkles. If you go to any place in MA and ask for just "sprinkles" you'll be getting rainbow ones... when you finally make your way up to the ice cream scooper person at Acushnet Creamery, you've got to say; I'd like "jimmies" so you get the chocolate ones on top of your coffee chip waffle cone.

    Bang a U-ey

    You know, making a quick (and sometimes illegal)  U-turn.  You might "pull a U-ey" while your are westbound on Rt 6 in Dartmouth near Mirisols and Wedy's... opps?  Was that illegal officer?

    Some might call it a t.v. remote.  We like to make things simple and rename it completely to the... CLICK-AH.

    The Packie

    Most people might say "the liquor store or the package store"  If you're heading to the "packie" aka Douglas Wine and Spirits at Kings Highway, always stay safe and don't drink and drive.
