"Yinzer" is slang for Pittsburgher.  Many Pittsburghers have a horribly ugly and uneducated sounding accent/manner of speaking.  One of the traits of this is the creation of the word "yinz", as in "What are yinz guys doing tonight?"  or "Yinz are a bunch of jagoffs." ("jagoff" being another regional vocabulary gem).

Yinz = pronoun meaning plural you.  It's regional dialect.


Haven't heard either of those since I was at Grove City in the late 60's. Grin
