Scranton is a city in north-east Pa that is, and the only way to describe it, fucked up. Built on coal when that shit is what people used to keep from dying and heat their homes in the winter (even uppity fucks from NYC who think they are a self sufficient planet and could secede from the universe)but has fallen on hard times as has the industry. The people who live there have been festering resentment at everybody while at the same time trying to maintain their dignity and history. Also, it is close to NYC and Philly so intelligent and entrepreneurial criminals set up shop there to take advantage of the situation. What does this mean, Scranton has idiosycrancies that are both cool and weird. Is so fucked up that it cannot be compared legitimately to any other city. And is a place where some kind old granny will fry you up a batch of pierogies with mangoes (green peppers in Scranton) if you ask her nicely, or some meth head will shank your spleen for the last of your warm beer. Was the home of the Molly Maguires, the original gang who fucked up shit old school. Google it sometime.
The urban planning in Scranton is thus: church, bar, church, church, bar, crackhouse, university, bar, church, bar.

The dirtiest, most Faggiest,place i've ever had the DIS-pleasure to "visit"! I heard they were going to rename it
"Inceston", Scince 99.9% of the population is the result of inbreeding. Funny thing about Scranton... no dentists! At least I think there isn't, scince none of the "Scrantonions" have anymore than three (3) teeth in their blowholes! At least to live on "Strong Island" you need to have a good amount of CA$H, infact my toilet bowlcost more $ than any so called house in that shithole!
The town "motto" for Scranton is...
" Come to Scranton,the city where incest is best"!
