Today I used the word "whopperjawed" on the air to refer to the signs at First Ave and Diamond. A caller challenged my use of that word, telling me "You're not from around here, are you?".
But look what I found: The Online Slang Dictionary. It shows the definition whopperjawed as "askew" but it also has a map where the word has been used. The map show "Tell City" as a place where someone heard whopperjawed, so it is a local term. I feel vindicated.
