Travel + Leisure unleashed its annual survey of American travelers, and the magazine seems to think people in Miami are both hot as hell and dumb as hell.
The Big Orange took first place for most attractive people and second for most stylish city, and let me tell you I can't remember how many times I've walked into a normal, everyday place like a gas station and think, Woah, did I accidentally walk backstage at a fashion show? I just came here to get some morning coffee, but, *rawr*, I might be leaving with some morning something else if ya know what I'm talking about. (Wood, morning wood, is what I was talking about.)
I'm sure that happens to you all the time too, walking into places and acting like an idiot. That's probably because we're so easily confused on account of how stupid we are. We came in number 29 out of 30 in intelligence. We also came in 27th on the friendly scale. Yeah, well fuck you too, Travel + Lesiure.
