a ghetto town in northern Massachusetts.
this town is so ghetto that its population all speak and act "ghetto". many strange expressions such as "stoked" and "joshing" originated here.
"im so stoked for the party tonight. haha just joshing.."
"judging from your vernacular, you must be from Wakefield, MA."
Because there are not actually any minorities or crime in this North Shore Massachusetts town, the town's teenagers, despite being the children of lawyers, doctors, professionals, and business owners, feel the need to hang around down town decked out in 'urban' clothes and act thuggish. Thankfully, most of this contrived suburban angst is over by the end of high school, and these thuggish kids end up at top colleges and act like the East Coast assholes their parents always dreamed their kids would be.
outsider: I was in Wakefield, MA the other day, and the kids looked like thugs even though there were nice ass houses everywhere, what's up with that?
wakefielder: Yeah man, those kids are just doing their part by bringing a little urban culture to a town that sorely lacks it. Don't worry though, when these kids realize their lives will be much easier when they act like the WASPs that they are, they'll smarten up.
