Let's play "Unless You're From Cincinnati," which I just made up in this form but I'm sure has been played many many times over.

Here are two examples to get the virtual ball rolling.

Chili is a popular dish made with chili peppers (imagine that) as well as other peppers, and cooked ground beef, and navy/kidney/similar beans, often along with still more spices depending on how much "heat' is desired. UNLESS YOU'RE FROM CINCINNATI. Then it tastes like "lobster sauce" rejected from a Chinese take-out joint, dumped over limp spaghetti and then bombed with diced onions + shredded cheese + oyster crackers.

"Please" is a "magic word" used to put emphasis on a request and make it more polite. UNLESS YOU'RE FROM CINCINNATI (and, these days, seemingly a west-sider past a certain age.) Then it's said in order to have something repeated because it wasn't heard or understood clearly the first time.

Your turn!

Pizza is a very simple food with a pounded out flour crust, some sauce spread over it, then you pick it layered on ingredients such as sliced pepperoni and grated cheese (or anchovies). Then you put it into a hot oven until the cheese is melted and the bottom of the crust toasted brown. That is, unless you are not from Cincinnati. Then it has to be a certain style, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Louis, wherever. I am still trying to figure out what is so great about these styles.

Give me the old Pasquale's, LaRosa's, Angilo's and the independents of my youth. They were all different so I guess that is why we did not have a Cincinnati style.

A river is a flowing stream of water seeking a lower level (like sea level) ... unless you are from Cincinnati. Then, if the name of the river is "The Ohio River" it marks the place where one cannot go farther south without special permission as beyond it is another nation (admittedly in the same country if you insist).

What is a New Years Eve blast in Cincinnati today? Years ago we would go to Castle Farm, yes have a few drinks, but more importantly congregate with friends, a dance band, and just plain have a great time. Seems like New Years becomes more of a Ho-Hum year after year. And TV is just plain a disaster.
