Easy, Apple, Potato

Trimegistus: ...can I request a ban on the term "The Big Easy"? ... It was invented out of whole cloth in the 1970s, and needs to be retired like most other bad ideas from that decade.

Wasn't that an echo of "The Big Apple"? Where did that nic for NYC come from, anyway? (He asked the horde knowledge source, without bothering to websearch.)

However, without that, I would never have called my mini-comics about Chicago, "The Big Potato" (the name never caught on, however appropriate). (Shameless self-plugola)
