I once had a girlfriend from Detroit who had summer jobs at Mackinac
Island. I got the word "fudgies" from her and now use it generically to
refer to tourists, especially those at overcrowded destinations. I don't
know if anyone else does.

WB:  Tempting limerick, rhyme sucks.

There was a young girl from Detroit
Who at Mackinac would tourists exploit
    When dealing with a fudgie
    She could be quite nudgy
Or even at times hoity-toit
