LA Thinks It's America's Douche Capital, Miami Begs to Differ
It's Friday afternoon on a particularly slow news day, a time when Village Voice Media news bloggers tend to go a bit off the reservation. Our counterparts at LA Weekly just dashed off a post about how the City of Angels is "The Douche Capital of the World," while calling into question Miami's douche credentials. Are you challenging us to a douche-off? Because we will douche-bring it.
It's a fair question: Is L.A. the nation's douche capital? After all (and despite what New York magazine thinks) bottle service started here after migrating from the Asian-American club scene. And, yeah, Vegas is way douchey, but think about it: Where do those spiky-haired, Christian Audigier fans come from? That's right, Angel City. Miami? Puleese. Those douches got nothing on our douches. At least they're fit, tan and speak proper Spanish.
Excuse me, Miami was recently ranked the fattest city in America in 2009, and this is honestly the first time we've ever heard anyone claim Miami speaks proper Spanish. Tourists from Spain can understand locals about as well as tourists from Iowa. Tan? Well, yes. You jealous?
