A flat, Wild West Central California town that is home to many farmers, farmworkers, steakhouses, and cows. Children raised here rarely stay, but return at holidays and connect with each other at local bars. It does not have any pet psychics or cosmetic surgeons, but this does not diminish its inherent value or capacity to inspire its more creative and intelligent residents. As a result of their own shame and self-loathing, many of its former residents feel compelled to insult it, often while using poor spelling and inappropriate verb tenses.
Person 1: Los Banos sucks.
Person 2: What are you really saying?
Person 3: Deep down, I loathe myself.
