Pittsburghese is pretty amazing, so many pronunciations and sayings… We reached out to some Pittsburgh dwellers to have them help us write the text for our Pittsburgh print in Pittsburghese. here are a few fun things we found on the web.

We paired our favorite Pittsburghese sayings with some of our favorite Pittsburgh celebs. Zachary Quinto, (how cute is he?), Andy Warhol, Christina Aguilera, Michael Keaton, Gene Kelly, Wiz Khalifa, Lurch and (one of my all time favorite actresses) Frances McDormand.
