Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, Which Orange County City Has the Snarkiest Kids of All?

Categories: Where you from?

Folks on an online forum were discussing the merits of moving to Huntington Beach when one soul mentioned the following: "Kids in HB are unfortunately snarky, that's just the culture ..."

Agree? Disagree? Make the case in our comments for the Orange County city that has the snarkiest kids, keeping in mind OC Weekly World HQ is not a city. More like an island ...

First, here is the full quote on City-Data.com:

"Wildsearch, I would agree with the other 2 posters here who advise against raising kids in HB. Kids in HB are unfortunately snarky, that's just the culture, with yes riots every year (many are local youths, locals just don't want to admit it). Try Fountain Valley like others mentioned, or Cypress. You are still just a 20 minute drive away from the beach from those cities, and better environment for your kids to grow up in."

Setting aside the snarky remark for a second, those unfamiliar with the area should know that there is not a riot in Huntington Beach every year. Not even every other year. But it has famously (and violently) happened often enough that the city gets saddled with the bad rep.

The snarky to me, by the way, would not be kids rioting but kids looking at the rioters and saying/texting "nice form" as stop signs are rammed into shop windows. (Or "special delivery" when rioters bend a sacred newsweekly box.)

But don't let me shade your Orange County kiddie-snark views. If you believe Surf Snarky, er, City has the snarkiest kids in all of OC, make your case in the comments. Just keep in mind the bored silly youth of Irvine, Newport Beach and Anaheim Hills who, as we've blogged here before, act out with healthy doses of snark. (That's the only tip you're getting; look 'em up for proof.)

On with the snark attack!

Snarkey kids? Raelly?? WTF??? Is it a slow news week in investigative reporting or what?! Not only does this read as some lame ass first world problem, but a made up one too boot! What about the increasing number of homeless and "mobile homeless" I see wandering around down near the beaches. existing on the margins of society and slipping through the cracks. check up on them lately. I'll admit it's not as large a problem as it is in other places (like up in Venice.) but I see an increasing trend. So it's only a matter of time.

LOL, yes I have 2 sons,  the youngest  who is 20 born and raised in HB can be a real snarky Ass! I love him , but its an HB thing,  I didnt raise him to be like that! And his older brother was born and raised 10 years difference between them and he isnt as snarky. So I think the kids born in the 90's are worse! LOL

Where are these non-snarky teenagers that you're suggesting actually exist?

Can we just group south county minus the ghetto SJC and Laguna Niguel into one lump and all that a bunch of snarkiness? Include YL with it

Isn't this entire article kind of "snarky"?....Did you really have to disparage an entire city's youth and tar all of them with the same name calling?.....with a little side snarkiness thrown at the youths of Irvine, NB, and Anahiem Hills.....

Don't ALL teenagers go through a "snarky" phase? I can bear the diss on my hometown but why the hatin' on the young people, City-Data? :-(

I'm fairly certain it's a still shot from the movie "PCU"...Spade is playing the role of the prissy college frat boy. ;-)

"PCU" was no "Animal House", but it had its moments... ;-)
