Hmmm, I guess you're right. The always reliable Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) says it's a Nor'easter thing. And they're "hundreds-and-thousands" in the British realm.

Mostly Massachusetts and Maine from my experience. I hate the term and always make it a point to order "SPRINKLES!" instead, no matter how weird it sounds.

They've ALWAYS been "Jimmies" to me, though I've never seen them packaged that way. IJ knows to call them as such - just like she knows it's wicked hot outside. :)

Yep, definitely (at least) a Massachusetts thing. My grandma taught me "jimmies", "tonic", and "bubbler" to name a few.

I remember way back in maybe the 70's hearing them referred to as jimmies, so it's recognizable to me. It seems as though it has been a long, long time since then!

Y'know, I was gonna make a snarky remark about not trading my summer weather for your winter weather, but when I looked up info on the climate in Seattle (en.wikipedia.org), I got jealous.-- Quit bragging!

    As for temperature, winters are cool and wet with average lows around 3540 F (24 C) on winter nights. Colder weather can occur, but seldom lasts more than a few days. Summers are dry and warm, with average daytime highs around 7380 F (22.226.7 C). Hotter weather usually occurs only during a few summer days. Seattle's hottest official recorded temperature was 100 F (37.8 C) on July 20, 1994; the coldest recorded temperature was 0 F (-18 C) on January 31, 1950.

Bubbler? Do you mean a drinking fountain? I thought that was just a Wisconsin thing.

No that's something that Wisconsin and Massachusetts share, for some reason.
A professor at Harvard University (now teaching at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee) did a survey of various US English dialectic differences.

The results of the bubbler/water fountain/drinking fountain question can be found here.

Was trying to find if he asked about jimmies and sprinkles, but I can't find it.

I learned a lot of interesting things by reading the survey. F'rinstance, there are places with drive-thru liquor stores? That's crazy.

Bubbler is/was a trademark of Kohler, so at least Wisconsinites are just being loyal to a local brand.

My wife, and I don't know where she got this, maintains that the chocolate ones are Jimmies, but the rest are just sprinkles.

She's absolutely correct. Colored sprinkles are Rainbow Sprinkles. Chocolate sprinkles are jimmies. I have trained all my children in the correct ordering of toppings for their ice cream.

2006? The Goodwrench scheme on the 29 means it couldn't have been last year. The 6 car makes it hard to tell.

The old car was much more prettier than the COT.
