I'm going with Scranton, although I've never actually been there, largely because it has a better reputation than Hell.

Really? I suppose you haven't been involved in the Scranton political threads as of late. LOL!

This thread is just another example of how people here at City-Data will criticize a place without ever having been there. Have any of you ever actually visited Hell, much less lived there? No? I didn't think so. I am sick of the City of Dis being dissed on these forums all the time just because of its reputation. Hell is one of the fastest growing cities on Earth, or in Earth, and wish people would learn something about it before they spout off. Get a brain, morans.

I'm floored by how close this poll really is. I would have assumed Hell would have taken a COMMANDING lead!

But, it snows in Scranton and Dwight Schrute lives there, so, I pick Scranton, the Electric City.
You won't believe the amount of "hype" here now that our first Sonic restaurant will be opening in 2009. People are running around gleefully beating their chests and wetting their pants!

Dwight Schrute actually lives on a beet farm in the outlying suburb of Waverly. Phyllis Vance hopes to retire in the Electric City someday. I was at the 2007 "The Office" Convention, and supposedly the real life Phyllis likes the city.

city.
Its strange what people will get excited about. In my town years ago we had several Wienerschnitzel restaurants. They weren't particularly popular and eventually all closed. Then after about 5 or 6 years a new one opened and there was a line about 5 blocks long for like 4 months to get food there. It got so bad that the police started ticketing people in cars for blocking traffic as they waited. The store set a franchise record for sales and at one point actually ran out hot dogs.

I might have to pick Hell simply because The Office is so horribly bad.
