These Colorful Montana Words sure sound dirty but they aren’t
The English language is a funny thing. It's just full of things that don't make sense. Like tier and tear sound the same but tear and tear don't. If English is your not your first language it can be confusing. That too goes for these Montana words that can sound pretty dirty if you aren't from here.
A Couple Three
What could sound like a bit of romp in the hay to the uninitiated, to Montanans, it's just a way we say a while ago as in "a couple three years ago."
In what sounds like an Urban Dictionary entry for something very vile, Angry Hank's is just a brewery in Billings.
In the wrong context this could make someone blush, but Big Stick is the nickname for Big Timber.
If you aren't from Montana hearing "That's quite a nice spread you've got there" could be pretty dirty. In Montana though it's just the way we talk about the size of a ranch.
Here in Montana we are just talking about being in the middle of nowhere. It's also a place you wouldn't want to find yourself, much like a gophers crotch.
First, I know it's Square Butte, but everyone not from Montana calls Butte butt so roll with me here. Also those not from Montana might think it's the shape your butt gets if you sit on it too long, but it's just a unincorporated community in Chouteau County.
We are keeping this PG so we won't say what these cover up. In Montana however a pasty is meat and veggies stuffed inside a pastry crust popularized in Butte.
Sometimes words just sound dirty even if they aren't. This is one of them, for some reason the word for rocks and dirt sliding down the mountain side just sounds dirty.
Another word that probably does have an Urban Dictionary entry, Stroopwafel just sounds dirty. They are however, delicious. Two waffle cookies with caramel in between, they are a dutch treat. They are best served over a cup of hot tea or coffee to warm up the caramel in between.
Those are just a few words that to a majority of those outside of Montana would think are dirty. Did we miss anything? Let us know on our app!
