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.

I've found Michigan drivers to be far slower than Wisconsin drivers.

That has not been my experience but even if they were they aren't in the "cruise" lane.

I think SE Wisconsinites say "Thank you" for all the Illinois businesses that moved across the state line.

I remember the FIB vs Cheesehead accusations while a student.
Coming from Connecticut, it never made any sense to me.

We call some of them MU basketball players.

Glow and I went down to Illinois today to pick up a small teardrop camper we just purchased.

The total of the tolls going down was $2.75

The total of the tolls coming back on the same route was $16.80.

Adding a one-axle trailer to the car increased the toll charge by 575%.  Throw it on the pile of reasons why I am glad I moved out of that state.

Have some patience, FFS.

Never once heard Fib in 30 plus years living in Wisconsin. Heard Fips countless times.
Guess it is like bubbler now being water fountain.
Or maybe aina now being isn't it.
Or Prange way now Target.
Ah yes. Progress!

Wow, Prange Way, that’s a blast from my past. And, it’s drinking fountain. I kid. Clearly FIPs exists, it’s just a new one to me.

Have lived in Wisconsin 40+ years.  Have heard FIPs exactly zero times.  Have heard FIBs countless times for 30+ years.

Maybe it's like Sheepshead: most people play diamonds are trump but some people play clubs are trump and insist they're right.

This thread is the first time I've ever heard of FIPs.  FIBs I've known about since the '80s.

Hardon is a play on Hards
Grade school is calling him juvenile

We need someone to sign up to be rocket's translator. Maybe it rotates every week.

I think you mean Willie, though Rocket also needs a translator at times.
