Doo-dee-doo-doo...yesterday afternoon, the Travel Channel had a show on the Dingle Peninsula.

Welcome, all ye newcomers! Clark--it's about time we had another Ozzie! :-)

being ex of Sunny Nodak (40 years ago), and never having heard dingleberries used that way, I hastened to google "out in the dingleberries" -- 0 gh, 2 Blogs hits, 1 Groups hit.

"Out here" is Fargo... Ah, a US'n; thanks. My main association with ND is that the people from there whom I've heard speak have the same accent as the characters in the Peanuts television shows.

Just FYI, according to USGS GNIS database there are 13 populated places in the US called Fargo... Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana somehow has 2, Illinois, Michigan, New York (2 again), North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wisconsin.

well! dingleberry is the first thought i had, but with all the literary responses, and this being my first ever response, i was reluctant to mention it! i know dingleberries as balls of poop in your underwear, i guess from farting!
