I Heart Ken Tremendous

Some NY schmuck tries to start a flame war between NY and Boston. Mr. Tremendous stumbles across it. Hilarity ensues.

Quick snip of the lede, so I can reach the character threshold for diary posting...


NY Schmuck: Beantown? That's it? Beantown?

There may be a city with a worse nickname somewhere, although I'm not sure what it could possibly be. Is there a Phlegmville out there?

Ken Tremendous: Annapolis, Maryland is "Crabtown." That's pretty bad. Beaver, OK -- already a terrible name for a place -- proudly self-identifies as "The Cow Chip Throwing Capital of the World." Well done. Birmingham, AL can't even really distinguish itself, when it announces that it's "The Pittsburgh of the South." Lyons, KS, about 30 miles due north of me here in Partridge, advertises itself as "The Unexpected Pleasure." Dubious, if you've ever been to Lyons. Santa Rosa, NM boasts that it's "The SCUBA-Diving Capital of New Mexico," which: isn't NM a land-locked desert? Noxubee County, Mississippi, waves on its flag: "Home of the Dancing Rabbit Festival and Magnolia Pilgrimage," next to which "Beantown" looks pretty effing good.
