Zuccotti Park: What Have YOU Done?

Matt (#26)

Oh wait.

Smitros (#5,315)

That London slogan actually served me pretty well once.

Come to Texas, we're mostly nice.

Come to the Phillipines, our hard boiled eggs have chickens in them!

Art Yucko (#1,321)

that last one really works, to me.

Brooklyn: Forget About It

BadUncle (#153)

@Dave Bry Sadly, it actually says that on the "You are leaving Brooklyn" sign before the Verazano Bridge.

Dave Bry (#422)

@BadUncle Ha ha ha. Oh, I know. I was making a spelling-based joke gentrification. (The sign says, "Fuhgeddaboudit," I think, right?) But, clearly, it was not a very good joke.

BadUncle (#153)

@Dave Bry Oy. No, I'm just thick.

Georgia On Your Mind (But Hopefully Not Because Of That Whole Troy Davis Thing)

Georgia: The Chances Of Us Executing You Are Really Exceedingly Small

GailPink (#9,712)

Very Funny

Villa (#2,985)

I would like to make out with you for that last line. Don't worry, I'm a good kisser.

Niko Bellic (#1,312)

Brooklyn. Only in New York.

theheckle (#621)

Colorado. HAPE happens.

Art Yucko (#1,321)

Actually saw this one on a bumper sticker this week: "Kansas City: More City, Less Kansas"

Matt (#26)

Liars.

Art Yucko (#1,321)

in classic Kansas City fashion: not intended as compliment

Margaret_R (#168,083)

"Prague"

ahem

hockeymom (#143)

West Michigan: Welcome!*
*welcome extends only to conservatives, Christians, Amway and people who think Erik Prince is super.

FMoss3 (#10,819)

@hockeymom Grand Rapids: Reminding you that Gerald Ford was once president.

Visit Greece: The drinks are on Germany.

Aatom (#74)

Virginia is for highway lovers! (Just don't go below Richmond.)

alorsenfants (#139)

@Aatom
Richmond: Syracuse with magnolias.

omitofo (#4,921)

Come to Los Angeles: where people bitch about hating their life here, but they never ever ever ever ever ever leave

Brunhilde (#1,225)

Also applies to San Diego. I can't believe how many people live there that are from there. Actually, Seattle too.

Tulletilsynet (#333)

You mention Appalachia and there's nothing about 'squealing like a pig'? Disappointing.

RonMwangaguhung (#3,697)

@Tulletilsynet Appalachia: once you've tried our popcorn squirrel you won't go back

Tulletilsynet (#333)

@RonMwangaguhung

Harold Harldrotta (#11,523)

The Ozarks – you'll stay up all night!

North Carolina – progressively backwards

Delaware – you'll love our toll booth

Alabama – southern fried xenophobia

Florida / Connecticut – the "are we there yet" state

Missouri – bicoastals love flying over us

Rhode Island – I think Yosemite is larger

Maryland – Come for the Crabs, leave with the Crabs

Leipzig – You'll really miss good mexican food after three weeks

Milan – please support our sweatshop sweaters

Nice – not as nice as Monaco

Genoa – you can't find us on a map

Kyoto – slow down, you're not in Tokyo anymore

Vienna – we don't have boats or canals

Glasgow – top gear

Ibiza – how many did you take ? how many do you usually take ?

Portland, OR: Brooklyn Copies Everything We Do. Seriously. No, Really, I'm Serious.

whizz_dumb (#10,650)

@Clarence Rosario I just spent the weekend in Portland and it was really fun. They really are serious. My sarcastic comments were received with confusion and/or pleasant surprise. Sarcasm is a novelty there. Another thing: way way way too many Cardinals fans at the bars being way way way too obnoxious. I pointed East and yelled "St. Louis is pretty far that way".

Brunhilde (#1,225)

Oooooor, they were making fun of your sarcasm by pretending not to understand. The Pac NW holds passive aggression to a new standard.
