The infamous Urban Dictionary. Possibly the only dictionary you still use today and probably the most popular dictionary for sure. Used by the older generation to understand what those young whipper snappers are talking about, and used by young people to say how they really feel. Like we don't have enough places to do that though (Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc).

Now I definitely don't agree with these or made any of them up so don't take any of them the wrong way. As those TV disclaimers would say: The views and opinions expressed in this article are of those of the specific contributors to Urban Dictionary and do not reflect the views or opinions of the author of this article. Thank you :)

If you aren't familiar, anyone can contribute to Urban Dictionary. It's like a vulgar, non-scientific, not properly sourced Wikipedia. It does hold some truth though (sometimes) and also can be entertaining. Not everything in the world is on it but some of our uniquely Manitoban things are. There is still a lot more that could be added so if you're feeling creative, feel free to go put Manitoba more on the global map and add things that the internet has yet to know about. As for the things that are currently on Urban Dictionary, this is what it has to say about them.

The middle child of Canada.

Just like the middle child of your aunt and uncle's family of 5, Manitoba really has no reasons for anyone to outright dislike them. However, like that meek cousin of yours, there's really no reason to like them too much either. It's quiet, it minds it own business, and has no defining characteristics. Plus it's basically at the geographic centre of Canada.

Slang for the province of Manitoba, Canada. A portmanteau of 'Manitoba' and 'snow', as Manitoba has a reputation for long, cold winters (as do the other Prairie provinces). Often heard together with 'Winterpeg', the slang word for its capital city (Winnipeg).

A: Where are you from?
B: Winnipeg, Manitoba.
A: Oh, Winterpeg Manisnowba? Cold enough for ya there?

An area in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Full of hippies, weed, trees, mosquitos, big ol' houses, and is right smack in the middle of the city. Famous in Winnipeg for being the only area that doesn't spray pesticides. You can easily get to just about any pub, club or bar from Wolseley. Best damn neighborhood ever.

Guy from Wolseley: Dude, I'm getting fvcking eaten alive over here.
Girl from Wolseley: But bugs are our friends, man!

Portage la Prairie

The third-largest city in Manitoba, "Portage la Prairie" is French for "pee stop between Winnipeg and Brandon". The main attractions include the world's largest Coke can in the back of the Canadian Tire parking lot and a gigantic spotlight that's used to blind passing pilots on the roof of the hotel next to the giant Coke can.

Oh man, it's another hour and a half to Brandon! Let's stop for a leak in Portage la Prairie!
