Local Cities As Defined By Urban Dictionary – NSFW

WARNING: This post may contain inappropriate words and phrases. Not safe for work, or children.

Urban Dictionary is a website that has all sorts of user generated definitions. It is usually pretty R- rated to be honest but you can type just about anything in there and find someone's definition. For instance here is one person's  "definition" of Country Music: "an unbearably irritating form of music that uses the same twangy gee-tar and awful wavering voice to sing about a very short list of topics such as: cheating spouse, alcoholics drinking to excess, pickup trucks, bein' a good-ol-boy, not havin' any a them-thar teeth and (DELETED WORD) ' horses. this form of music is generally played at hoot n' annies, box socials, barn dances and every store north of georgia that d- bags go to buy cowboy hats even though they have no legitimate need for them."  Not  very flattering but it gives you an idea of what we are dealing with here.
