A city located in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Has one of the highest crime rates in the 757. Basically has the look and feel of a downgraded Norfolk (another Hampton Roads city). Not the best place to be at night...or day.
Student: "I was thinking about looking for apartments in Portsmouth for next semester."

Parent: "Ok honey, well if you move there, just make sure to have plenty of food, water, and oh yeah an AK-47 with hollow tip rounds."

The biggest shithole in the UK. Full of Skate (see definition) and the place smells of nats piss and fish (Grimbsy pales into comparison compared to Portshithole).

Relative pawpers in terms of a football team compared to their superior counter parts along the coast. Common sense though will soon prevail and the team of foreign refugee's will be relegated back down where they belong.
Shithole, smells of nat piss

City located in the South Eastern Virginia, world renown for its pungent odor. Due to its close proximity, the smell likely originated in Hampton and has taken root in Portsmouth.
Portsmouth city motto boasts,
"At least we dont live in Hampton."

Portsmouth residents have an average per capita income of $6000 a year, and most of that goes towards the purchase of crack cocaine.

A town on the New Hampshire coast. Portsmouth has a large population of hippies and hipsters. There isn't a lot to do in the town, especially in the winter, so many adults go to one of the many local coffee shops or the Music Hall theatre. The kids usually either play sports, become alcoholics/potheads, or both. Most people in Portsmouth are rich or middle class, the exceptions populate the housing projects, such as Gosling Meadows. The high school consists of students from three different towns, Greenland, Rye, and Portsmouth. Nothing happens in Greenland, people from there do say nigger a lot though. Everyone from Rye is rich as fuck and believes that there a gangsta, when really there a spoiled white kid who has never been in a fight in there life. Most kids in the school are from Portsmouth and consist of skaters, jocks, lax bro's, stoners, and kids who no one knows. Everyone acts tough but the people who can actually do shit can be counted on one finger. In general, there are a lot of jocks, skaters, and stoners, and not much else. Also Liam Annis is hated by pretty much everyone in the school.
Steve: Wow, I'm so bored.
James: Wanna drink until we pass out?
Steve: Let's do it.
James: I love Portsmouth.

A Korean hoe named Port who had a Russian penis and a Japanese penis in its mouth. She spit out the Russian penis, and continued sucking the Japanese's because it had predominant powers.
"That hoe is such a Portsmouth!"

Full of Pikeys, a pathetic excuse for a town and football team, if you ever get the chance to go there, DON'T! The smell of fish hits you as soon as you enter. they're all little skates who think they have a good football team, well I have six words 'Harry and Jim, Red and White' YOu stupid skate bastards. You think that your TOWN, (not city like Southampton) is brilliant when infact it is a dump, even you fishy fucks know the best thing abbout your 'town' is the M27 out of it.
Impression of a skate: 'Hmm my caravan smells of fish, I know lets attack the police'. TARDS.
