Oh snap, I'm glad I ran into this article...I was just starting to plan my honeymoon in romantic Missouri.
And you thought only Virginia was for lovers (and masked killers)!

The first sentence of that article is "Ohio is a big and economically strong city".

Yeah, no, it's crap.

The Highlights...
10. Ohio...It is non-sense, but this non-sense wasn't funny.
9. Los Angeles..."he who gets out of his limits, is arrested in no time." It sounds like the laziest paraphrasing of a bible passage. For this one when the writer saw LA he/she thought Los Angeles instead of Louisiana (LA is the abbreviation of Louisiana)...
8. Michigan..."The street kidnappers, according to a report, have made these individuals their hunts since a long. They are kidnapped and killed for ransom." By report the writer means The Onion.
7. Indiana...It is non-sense, but this non-sense wasn't funny.
6. Missouri..."Missouri is a place for newly married couples to spend their time at.'' Screw Hawaii, Europe, or some other exotic location...we're going to Missouri! ''Those who come here to spend their holidays are kidnapped and killed by the criminals. What a bad impression this city is leaving on the international visitors, but unfortunately this city is under serious threat of crimes.'' This is just what it feels like visiting Missouri, not what actually happens.
5. Washington...It is non-sense, but this non-sense wasn't funny.
4. New York..."Those who are unemployed due to some reasons are committing robbery, rape and killing like crimes." Does killing like crimes mean they are really good at crimes similar to robbery and rape (as in We're killing it), or committing crimes similar to killing, which makes no sense because killing is an absolute?
3. Alabama...It is non-sense, but this non-sense wasn't funny.
2. Maryland..."This innocent student community is being attacked by the terrorists. Sometimes even the smugglers make the students their victims and ask for ransom from the government." So Maryland is as lawless as the seas?
1. California...more non-sense, but this non-sense wasn't funny.

I think the writers sources were The Onion and Uncyclopedia.This article is the print/written version of this...

To the writer, I have a very special reward for this mish-mash of non-sense...

My guess is that the OP is the author. Very similar writing "styles".
