Tuesday Tublogging

Inside the Squirrell Hill Tubes, Pittsburgh

When I say "Tublogging", you all know I mean "Tube Blogging", right? Here in Pittsburgh, locals (known as "yinzers") refer to tunnels as "tubes." Just recently, I heard people using the word "tubes" to mean "Internet connection," as in "the hotel's tubes are down." Last year, we would have said "intarwebs". I suppose in the future, people hereabouts will refer to tunnels as "Internets", assuring that nobody has any idea what we're talking about.
