In a morbid coincidence, RIP Mayor Ed Koch.
My jaw dropped when I heard that.
Man, this episode. It was so great that about halfway through, I gave up on making mental notes of individual highlights that I wanted to mention here.

But yeah, the '-um' thing is considered offensive. It's the equivalent of saying 'ching-chong' when describing Chinese speakers. There's even an old Seinfeld episode that addresses it when Jerry tries to date a Native American woman and unintentionally keeps using offensive slang around her (he even says, 'We smoke-um peace pipe!' at one point).

Also, ignoring the northwest, the Fargo-Moorhead metro is a good sized city (200,000 or so) and is farther north than Quebec, Montreal AND Toronto, not to mention Minneapolis
On a side note; Dear Ku-Ku, would you and/or Howard ever venture back to your native homeland of the upper midwest and do a Whooch Tour? I'd supply Howard will plenty of "games" and homeless guy coats to wear, I'd even volunteer my time to help with sound as I am an independent audio engineer and radio producer! Much love to the Ku and Wi, the show is great.
