For reasons we don't understand but appreciate, a 2009 post by former staffer Joe Tone entitled "Denver: The manliest, drunkest, business-iest, happiest, safe-sex-having-ist city in America" went viral yesterday. Which means, predictably, that a number of Denver haters stepped up to share some less positive views about Our Fair City. Like this one.

You forgot douchiest, tatted up, uninteresting, fratty, boring city in the west. If you don't believe me just cock your Monster energy drink cap to the side and enjoy the wonderful stroll down 16th street to take in the most uninteresting city center, filled with the most unremarkable people you've ever seen. Take away all the Metro State retards on the weekend and LoDo is just another forgettable sh*thole between NYC and San Fran.

BTW, You must mean manly in the sense that there are 5 dudes for every chick, and since there is no competition, they just get fat in addition to being some of the most average, homely looking women in the country. Dudes have sex with these beasts because they have no other option.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
