A city in south-central Washington State. Riddled with crime and gang violence, the depressed area around and including the city are known for a high unemployment rate and low property values. Yakima has earned the nicknames "Yaki-Vegas", "Yaki-shithole" and "Yaki-crack". The official city slogan is "Yakima, the Palm Springs of Washington," which couldn't be farther from the truth.
Friend: "What should we do today?"
Me: "We could go to Yakima, listen to the hispanic radio stations with our windows rolled down and carjack an '86 Oldsmobile."
