A borough of New York City. People that don't live here act as if a plethora of great activities is thrown in their fucking faces every weekend. Apparently being well-groomed (eyebrow waxing, etc.) is looked down upon by ignorant shitstains on society, and a "Staten Island accent" is inferior to any other accent, no matter how idiotic other accents may sound (such as a Southern accent, which is comparable to a deformed moose having sex with a frog). There is a large landfill that hasn't been in use since 2001, after the last of the September 11th debris was delivered. Yet, people that are oblivious of life in Staten Island continue to add definitions.
Two 70+ year old men having a conversation:
Man 1: "So where did you grow up?"
Man 2: "I grew up in Staten Island, New York."
Man 1: "Oh, I've heard that's not such a great place.Your life must have sucked pretty bad then, huh?"
Man 2: "Actually not in the slightest, I'm still happily married to my wife of 40 years, I have 3 children that all went through college with full scholarships and now they have their own families. How about you, where did you grow up?"
Man 1: "Oh I grew up in Arkansas."
Man 2: "Oh that sounds nice, how's your life been so far?"
Man 1: "...I got charged with 25 to life for murdering a prostitute after I robbed a bank, killed 3 police officers and highjacked a truck full of explosives...Luckily I fled the country though!"
Man 2: "Yeah! You define the word lowlife!"
