Default St. Louis satirized

This was found by my fiancee, fellow C-D member Missy.Rivers, as this is hilarious:
http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/St._Louis

The description of the various suburban communities really brings this home, I was laughing for about 15 minutes straight reading this.

It's all in good fun, and you have to take it for what it is.Truth begets humor!

I needed some giggles on this Monday morning, so I thank you for sharing!

DP, if you're lurking (I know you always do!) :P

Lake St. Louis - Has the most original name of any St. Louis suburb. There's an artificial lake for old people and hobos to take a dump in, and it thinks it's a tourist attraction because of Wal-Mart and its impressive population of nearly 16 people.

As a future Missourian, I thought it was hilarious. This part really tickled me:

Geography
The city lies between two muddy rivers, the Mizzourey and the Mississippi. Contrary to popular belief, St. Louis was invented by the Sumerians over 4,000 years ago.
The city’s lack of any natural boundaries or sea ports as well as its location between several highly aggressive warring nations make it a natural tourist attraction and trading center. St. Louis is famous for its lack of mountains and abundance of water. And of course, the abundance of squirrels and blind deer.
The regular devastation that is caused by mass meteor showers has been traced to the fact that there a large deposit of magnetic materials mixed into the bedrock that seems to just yank passing meteors out of the sky. In fact, recent studies indicate St. Louis' electromagnetic field is as strong as that of the planet Jupiter, if not stronger.
Just east of the city, across the Euphrates, the legendary Cahokia Mounds are located. Popular belief is that they were built hundreds of years ago by Indian tribes for exercise purposes, however most St. Louisans believe them to just be...mounds.

Very funny! I'm moving to the area with my high school age daughter this summer, and found that pdf to be very humerous and stranglely accurate, given all the research I have done so far!
