Having lived in both wisconsin and illinois.

who in their right mind says FIPs and why does one person saying it deserve its own thread.

When I visit Wisconsin I'm usually called Sir.

As an Illinoisan

Wisconsin = FIBs
Michigan = FIPs

Good friends

I chuckle at Wisconites that belittle folks from Illinois.  We put cheese on our heads, folks

I enjoy some of the random offerings on You Tube and recently began watching Charlie Berens.
 Good stuff

 His callbacks to Wisconsin topics/humor are great, including a few bits on FIBs
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

Flatlanders
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

Flatlanders
Isn't that Nebraska to Indiana and north to Canada?

You are all Flatlanders to Coloradans.

I’ve heard FISH and FIBS, never FIPS.  I’ve been all over this state, with politically incorrect people from all generations and never once heard FIPS

I’ve known FIBS since the early 80’s.

If the FIPS definition found on line is more “politically incorrect” than FIBS like Dung claims, it might be time for Dung to get into the 21st Century

I had forgotten about FISHTABs and Flatlanders, but have heard them before.

Pretty wild that FIPs is actually a thing in Michigan.  I guess even a broken clock is right twice a day.

My grandma has dementia and I though she made up the "unnatural carnal knowledgein Illinois pigs! Oink oink oink" thing she yelled out the window at a passing car once. Maybe she's just a Michigander at heart

FIP = People
FIB = John Snow

Regardless both Michiganders and Illinoisans can agree, the a—hole in the left lane, going 50MPH and wondering why someone used to driving on the Dan Ryan is passing them on the right as they refuse move over, is guaranteed to have a Wisconsin license plate.
