My friend went to Winnipeg to visit family recently. She told me that she often hears people make fun of it, but she appreciates the lack of traffic and affordable housing. Now, putting aside the fact that any place with no traffic starts to feel like death to me quite quickly, I don't think that these qualities relate to the mockery. They're completely unrelated.
It's the name. Someone took two of the worst people names and mashed them into a vaguely porcine mess.
My apologies to anyone who's actually called "Winnie" or "Peg". But very mild apologies. They're complicit for allowing the worthy names of "Gwendolyn" and "Margaret" to be corrupted so.
Ahab versus Long John Silver! Battle of the peg legs!
I like Long John for this. Dude knows how to lighten up better.
