Whata ya from woosta?

jimmies ? vs sprinkles?
Click below to see a video feature on Bostonian vernacular. I know 'jimmies,' and 'tonic,' but I've never heard of 'bobos' or take a 'digga.' Perhaps it's generational. I personally think of 'jimmies' and 'sprinkles' as two different things. I think the colored candies are sprinkles. The chocolate ones are always jimmies. When I was growing up, I never remember seeing 'sprinkles,' except at Dairy Queen. And Dairy Queen was a horrid excuse for real ice cream. How about you fellow Bostonians?
