MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport got its own shout out on the hit show "Jeopardy!" this week.

The question: "In disarray after airport security? Mitchell International serving this Wisconsin city has a place for you to get sorted out."

The answer: What is Milwaukee.

The "Recombobulation Area" is described as a place "in which passengers that have just passed through security screening can get their clothes and belongings back in order."

Sure, "recombobulation" might not technically be an actual word, but that doesn't matter to many of Milwaukee's travelers.

In 2009, the American Dialect Society named it the most creative word of the year.
