The more I read on that site, I'd guess not, but nothing - absolutely nothing is below these sorts of folks.

Read some of the featured articles, though. I did a few months ago Whoever put the page together knows his/her Trixies.

It's a total joke.

The Lincoln Park Trixie site has been making a joke out of north siders for years now. The site is absolutely hilarious. Sometimes truth makes the best humor. Good stuff.

Their Open Letter to Cubs Management is pretty priceless too:

I have read that site before, and it's pretty accurate and pretty funny.

The thing about it being a parody is that it doesn't even need to be one - I mean, it's completely true. Isn't parody somewhat false?

It's a joke, trust me.

Absolutely a satire - and spot on.

But whoever writes it and whoever writes on the boards also knows their south side.

Peggy Gallagher is priceless.

Also, it's been pretty dead lately, leaving me to believe that Sox fans and / or Cub-haters are too depressed to write satire.

"Rod is just so cool; I love his collection of fitted Cubs caps and his extensive inventory of Cubs Jerseys! He's got Sosa, Farnsworth and even Sammie!" claimed Erin as she grabbed for another Miller Lite.

Priceless. :D:

They keep referring to "Trixies" throughout the article. What is a "trixie"?

A Trixie is a fictitional young (usually Irish upper class)woman from the North Shore who now lives in Lincoln Park and drinks Starbucks lattes, has a great job in a prestigious company downtown, drives a Jetta, has a Kate Spade purse, and has (or is looking for) a rich "Trixie male" so she can quit her job, buy a house/condo in Lincoln Park and have babies that she can show off in a jogging stroller.

The site is a total parody; the satire is almost too real.

Drive around the North side near Wrigleyville and you will spot Trixies and Trixie males...they are all over the bars and at the Urinal. That's what's so funny about LPTrixies--they actually DO exist!

A Trixie is slang for a person who lives in Lincoln Park, between the ages of 22 and 35, has a job downtown, goes out to the bars and is a Cubs fan. Like a Yuppie, but not so 1980's. Like a new term for Yuppie. And a Chad is the frat guy, 22 to 40, who also works downtown, likes to bag a lot of chicks and is also a big Cub fan, even though the dude just moved from Iowa.

I work with one - they do exist. I, too, am an Irish chick and never had the urge to be an LTP either! :D:

Thanks Mrs. alohafri, thanks IrishSox, very vivid descriptions. I understand the term yuppie, and now understand trixie. But one question on these trixies: Has the Jetta driving been eclipsed by the BMW Mini Cooper? Do current trixies look down upon "out of date" trixies driving Jettas? Do Jetta drivers feel shame driving in Lincoln Park for not being able to keep up with the "Joneses", I mean, the "Chads".
