Love it!! But I thought there was a special place for Pitt (or is it Shittsburgh)?

It is the capital of Assholistan.

Thanks for clarifying. I blogged it too and am getting good feedback.

We are spreading the joy. :-)

Note for non-Appalachians. That is not a typo. Many WVians really say "Warshington."

Oh, and the "Broncos Suck" thing might not be an opinion shared by all West Virginians, just us Browns fans.

Oh, and if any of these offend anyone, please let me know and I will have one of my interns knock out a glowing CVB-style writeup on your geographic area.

Hey, wait a minute. Some of my best friends are Ohioans even though they drive like shit in their old beat up trucks with homemade wooden tailgates because the state is so lax about vehicle inspections.

Pittsburgh and the surrounding area is about right on the money though.

Elvis, LAX on vehicle inspections? They dont' have any. Once I saw a truck with no front....no grille, no bumper, no headlights, nothing! Can be good folks but the driving habits puts them right back to asshole status.

A friend from Toledo said that inspections are lax due to all of the salt-based corrosion in the winter. Apparently every car north of Lima-Dublin-Cambridge would fail.

the sad part is, it is a pretty accurate depiction of the way west virginians think.

anon: Thanks for dropping by. I wouldn't put too much faith in the map, though, as it is more my perception of a perception of reality than reality or a true perception of reality.

'Cept for the one about Texas football movies. Didn't it seem like they made a new one every 10 minutes in the 90s?

Why would West Virgina people root for a football team from assholistan?

Wednesday, July 16, 2008  
Blogger Chris James said...

Mainly 'cause they always show Steelers 'n Browns games on TV.

Hey Chris --

Hilarious!!!

As a life-long resident of the "Coach Thieves" state, I must admit I laughed my ass off at your map. Assholistan is right on, brother! You guys hate Pitt; We hate the Buckeyes!

Even though I'm a Wolverine, I can still call you brother, btw, as my father was born and raised in Huntington. And yes, he calls it warshington, too!

Ask him if he prefers Stewart's or Frostop.

Very accurate! I always heard it as WORSHington not Warshington though. :D

I'm a little late finding this, but as a WV transplant to Ohio, I have to agree wholeheartedly with the bad driving! I've been here 10 years and it still makes me crazy! For the record, I haven't said Warshington once, but my grandma is from the Pennsylvania part of Assholistan.
