I think it goes:

Sioux Falls, SD
Sioux City, IA

Sioux Falls could be renamed:

whoops! I meant SD! It's really embarassing considering I drove there.

I like your new name for it, but you need to specify the state. It SHOULD be,
Sioux Everybody-here-lives-through-recession-because-wages-are-high-and-unemployment-is-only-at-2%-and-people-don't-overspend-on-stuff-they-can't-afford-and-people-have-a-work-ethic-and-the-quality-of-life-is-high-because-there-is-excellent-medical-amentities-and-recreation-for-its-citizens-to-enjoy-that's-why-it's-the-fastest-growing-city-in-the-midwest-and-crime-is-nearly-nonexistant-yet-it-has-a-population-of-nearly-160,000, SD

Salt Lake City? Where is it? It just had the Olympics there six years ago. But wait, where is it? East-coasters think it's on the west coast, people on the west coast think it's by Denver (not exactly), at least that's what other people tell me.
