Score One for Philly-isms

Headline from a Wired Article: “Phoenix Lander finds Water Ice on Mars”

“Water ice.” That still makes me grind my teeth. Even though it makes perfect sense in this context (the ice is frozen water, not frozen carbon dioxide).

Although I guess if it were a true Philly-ism, it would be pronounced “wooder ice.”
