New Nickname for Orange County: Cincinnati by the Sea!

There are many nicknames for Orange County floating around. OC. 
The OC (blargh). La naranja.

 The Orange Curtain. Hell. Stepford with Mexicans. And so on and so forth.

But now, a random commentator has coined the best one yet: Cincinnati by the Sea.

It came about over at our Stick a Fork in It blog, courtesy of the latest racialist controversy to spring up in our shores: a Chik-fil-A employee identified two UCI Asian students as "Ching" and "Chong" on their receipts. 

There's over 100 comments on the post, including some of the apologist kind, and then there was this masterpiece by a commentator identifying themselves as lakewood216:

Ah..Orange County...same old intolerant biblethumper-ruled hellhole.  Orange County is a place us flyover-country-folk here in Cleveland can feel smug and superior about...we don't have the racists and fundies and anti-Semites that OC has.  Our county council (Cuyahoga County) has 3 GOPers out of 11 members..the OC Board of Superviors is STILL 100% Republican...in December 2011.  Jesus.  Orange County.....Cincinnati by the sea.

HILARIOUS! Cleveland, of course, is hardly a heaven, but I never thought about the scary, right-on comparison between us and Cincinnati, that hellish city of prudes, pricks, and pendejos whose only positive contributions to America are Jerry Springer, Cincinnati Bengals Hall of Fame offensive lineman Anthony Muñoz, and fucking with Larry Flynt so much that it got the man ever more determined to fuck with Puritan hypocrites. Perhaps we should start a sister cities program?

Exactly. 

The 5 will take you straight to LA if you don't like it here, Klavito. Drop by Home Depot for some help with the move, I doubt you have any friends that will do it for 'beer-n-pizza'.

BTW the US census have facts on each county in the US. 

Here's some illuminating ones

**Percent of population below the poverty line**

Cuyahoga---  18.9%The 'C---  10.7% [despite Santa Ana! --my]

**Per Capita Income**

Cuyahoga $25,788 Orange County $33,901

**Median Household Income**

Cuyahoga $40,254The 'C  $71,735

Cincinnati is in Hamilton County. You're thinking of Cleveland.

The douche who was talking shit was from Lakewood which is a Cleveland suburb.  In Cuyahoga county... Which by the way in case you all forgot Cleveland managed to set the cuyahoga river on fire in the 70s... Thats right a flowing body of water was set aflame... Good Job Cleveland!

But the OC stats are significantly better than Hamilton county, too, e.g. 10 versus 15% under the poverty line.

I'll admit not being up to snuff with Ohio geography--I was going off the fact that Cuyahoga was mentioned above.

Now, go back and re-read the post out loud like Billy West's Marge Schott from the olden days of the terrestrial radio version of The Howard Stern Show.
