East coast terms

I love New England and New York City, and even though I don't live there, I appreciate the words they create.

One that I recently saw was "Kremlin on the Charles," which I first saw in a Mad Minerva post.

The term refers to Harvard University, as described by Richard Nixon (I discovered the term's origin here).

Another cool phrase that I just found out about was via a Michelle Malkin post (with a picture): Muffin Top: "that unsightly roll of flesh that spills over the waist of a pair of too-tight pants, like a muffin bursting out of the pan. "

I need to put my own creations out there. I have posted one of them at some other blogs, but I have to make sure that I was the first person to use it.
