Dogpatch is a fictional town in the "Lil Abner" comic strip. The town was often referred to by its inhabitants and outsiders as being the most miserable and unnecessary place on Earth.

There is a neighborhood in Los Angeles (located in the city of Paramount) that is referred to as Dogpatch, probably because it is very poor and gang infested.
My homeboys live in Dogpatch, right next to Compton.
