Why do you park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?

And what's the deal with airline food?

I think of everything east of the Rockies and west of the Appalachians to be considered the midwest.

and wouldn't it be appropriate for them to be far apart, with everything in between considered the mid?

I always thought Idee-ho was out west...unless you're in western Washington/Oree-gun. However, it's "up north" for me.

Spokane is the mid-east. Idaho is back east. Ohio, NY, etc. are the far east. Portland is down south. Cali is the dirty dirty south. Georgia, Arkansas, etc. are a third world country :p

hokey-dokey...I'll go with that.

Anything east of the Rockies is another country anyway.

Just when I start to think that there is no hope for humanity, a thread like this comes along and completely confirms it.
