The capital of flyover country. Also the gay capital of the Midwest. St. Louis has the most broken educational system in the Midwest, whereby the "good" schools are segregated by sex, and the "bad" schools are not about education so much as they are about incarceration. The colleges in St. Louis are completely overrated and prepare students for a life of Midwest Mediocrity. Any college graduate with an ounce of ambition avoids St. Louis like the plague.
St. Louis is a very segregated city - The North side is for the brothers and sisters, the South side is for the "hoosiers," the West side is for the privileged snobs and the East Side is where you go for strippers. People live in St. Louis because the cost of living is dirt cheap. Most inhabitants of St. Louis have given up on life and are completely out of shape. You will find a McDonald's every two blocks, but a Subway once in a blue moon.
St. Louis is as boring as any city in the Midwest. There is one block in Midtown that has two or three "hip" bars where young people go to pretend having a good time. The entire town is obsessed with baseball, so all fun-loving St. Louisans stay home every night and watch the baseball game. St. Louis has many parks, but at any given time the park is inhabited by an abundance of promiscuous gay men.
St. Louis is the ultimate "trap city."

Bob: "I want to get fat, send my kid to an all-boys school and stay home every night watching TV!"
