|1.||City of 10,000 Whores|
Another term for the city Nashville, TN oftentimes used by author and sports columnist Hunter S. Thompson. It refers to what the Yankees called Nashville in the Civil War era, when Nashville was apparently the "Syphilis Capital of the World." Hunter S. Thompson writes, "Nashville is a river town with a long and sleazy history. It was a capital of commerce before the Civil War, when it became a vicious war zone and a swollen mecca for gamblers and prostitutes. The population doubled during The War, and most of the newcomers had Syphilis."

Jim: Okay, man, but be careful. It's the City of 10,000 Whores.
