We all know how to use a dictionary, whether it is in book form or we are just looking up a definition on the internet. At least once a week, I need to look at the definition of a word online. However, recently I thought back to the days when I used to look up the definition of certain words, names, and things on Urban Dictionary.

Now, if you never used Urban Dictionary, I do not recommend using it as a true dictionary. The definitions on the site are mostly amusing, granted some definitions may be correct.

Unlike a regular dictionary, Urban Dictionary has many terms and phrases that you may have never even heard of. This online dictionary allows users to submit their own definitions for all the terms, including slang words and phrases.

I remember the days when I would look up what people wrote about what my name means. I always got a laugh when searching on Urban Dictionary, so I thought why not see how people describe Maine and some of the things that Mainers love and say?

Here are the results:


"The friggin best place in the world! Wicked sick. It's the most Eastern state in the U. S."

"The easternmost United States. Known as "Vacationland", it is no doubt a magnet for summer tourists who flock to rocky coastlines dotted with lighthouses and pine trees, as well as numerous forests inland including the Appalachian Trail's Hundred-Mile Wilderness and its terminus at Mount Katahdin. The state is so distinctively east that it is the only state to border just one other state (New Hampshire), and borders the fewest states of any in the lower 48."

"Maine can be expensive but few states have the luxury of living so close to nature. Yeah we have rednecks but at least our noses aren't so high up in the air we can't touch the ground. I've never known anyone to marry their cousin or have kids with them up here...but I guess it would be like some people to stereotype."


"The way Mainahs say what most folks call lobster. Seeing as Maine has the largest lobstah industry of any state in the USA, "lobstah" is the correct pronunciation of the word."

Whoopie Pie

"Two delicious pieces of chocolate cake cookie with marshmallow fluff mixture in the middle. Popular in New England."

It seems like whoopie pie is straight to the point, granted there were some other definitions that would be considered highly inappropriate. If you really want to know, you can find out what I mean here.


"sitting in a boat like an idiot."

"A sport which involves catching fish with a fishing rod, you sit and wait until a stupid unsuspecting fish bites onto your bait, then you reel him in and most likey cut him open"

L.L. Bean

"A great brand for people wanting to look simple yet classy. It's rightfully priced because of it's quality and name, unlike the brands you see today like Abercrombie and Fitch. Gives you the "New Englander" look. L.L.Bean is a little expensive but if you are looking for quality, elegance, simplicity, and class, look no further. did i mention their book bags last a lifetime?"


"The most brutal soda known to man kind, it has a taste resembling sweetened cough medicine. It is not for the weak, thats probably why only New Englanders get it."

"It Means A Person Full Of Energy, Pep, Courage Or Determination."


"The single greatest article of clothing ever to be invented by mankind."

You Can't Get There From Here

"1. The place is remote and the route is hard to describe 2. the problem cannot be solved."

"A phrase that is stereotypically attributed to people from Maine, usually by people in the lower New England states to feel superior to our Northern neighbors (like we don't talk funny enough). It has to be said with a northern Maine accent: "there" is pronounced "they-ahh" and "here" is pronounced "hee-yahhhh." The "you" is implied and does not need to be said."


"New England slang that adds emphasis. Synonymous with really, very and hella."

"To describe how great something is: "This car is wicked cool!"
To show aggravation: "This fucking guy is a wicked asshole!"
To show frustration: "That guy is wicked slow!"
To show amazement: "Wow, that game is wicked awesome!"
To describe a person: "She's a wicked bitch!"
To describe the weather: "Man, it's wicked hot out here!"
To emphasize feelings: "That story made me wicked sad!"
To exaggerate your point: "That took a wicked long time!""

Do you agree with these definitions? Are there any terms missing that we should add?
