as i recall, the little old lady from dubuque was in the original prospectus for the new yorker, presumably a term coined by the promoter and first editor, harold ross. wonder if fred has that one in his dictionary.
there used to be, and possibly still is, a weekly newspaper called the west virginia hillbilly, written "for mountaineers in general and west virginians in particular, and especially for the little old lady from dubuque."

I don't know what excuse
your telemarketers have, except maybe their synapses clicked onto the
"little old lady from Dubuque" subroutine (wasn't that who the New
Yorker was supposedly not written for?) and figured there must be one
in the household...
