The mistake by the lake. The snow capital of the world. Where schools never cancel classes and no one is surprised if the temp changes from 100 degrees to negative 20 in 4 hours. The adults are all either really sheltered or mega whacked out. Kids start drinking, smoking, and f*cking in elementary school. And you can find a bag of pot easier than you can spot a car. You might live in the city but have 3 farms in a mile radius. Nick Scott is a known hated monopolist. If you go to college, you are probably either a science or communications major. If you once went to college, chances are you did drugs or drank every day, all day, for years, and still do. The millcreek mall and the dollar theater were the coolest places to hang growing up, and the penninsula was so awesome with its nasty shit infested water. If you ever want to see the most messed up city in all the world, come here.
Erie, PA received 10 feet of snow today and nothing closed down except the plowing companies.

A city full of rednecks, sluts, skanks, prostitution, drug dealers and many more. Erie is the Little Detroit of Pennsylvania, it’s also well known as being the mistake on the lake. They have the Nighmare on Elm Street Walmart, abandoned houses full of homeless and crackheads, as well as gangsters with weird nicknames like “Spoons”, “Hacker” and “PSN”. Erie has a billion churches and probably a thousand bars on every corner. People only think Erie is the best just because of Waldameer and Splash Lagoon, but once you go into the neighborhoods, you’ll think “this place is a shit hole.”
I went to Erie and found a needle on the ground.

If you have dreams of doing something great with your life congratulations it will never happen good luck selling gas cards at cofair for the rest of your life, marriages don’t last here and if they do you live in a house hold where everyone hates each other, the coolest place to hang out in the city is Best Buy

The gangsters in this city actually don’t do anything gangster except for impregnating women and leaving them to raise the next generation of welfare warriors.

Every time you see a crime on the local news page it’s almost certain that the last names are Robinson, pulliam, or Thompson

What’s even crazier is that those 3 family’s have been inbreeding and shooting at each other for the last 15 years over baby mama issues neighborhoods owned by the government and Digimon trading cards

The hispanic community isn’t any better it’s filled with a bunch 5”4 guys in jeans that are tighter than a tech deck flip kick they also show up to car shows and meets with females who are clearly underage and they never refer to them as their girlfriends it’s always oh this is just my home girl.

Any other foreigner in town is a fake money bag man with a salvaged car from co part

The white people here are either super sheltered, crack heads or just wonked tf out of their Minds for whatever reason, I said hi to a White lady the other day and she ran away like I was tryna eat her Scooby snacks
“Hey son here’s 16 dollars go to cofair and buy me a 5 dollar gas card and a pack of back woods”

“Okay dad when are we gonna eat”

Ask your mom she already takes 800 dollars a month from me in Child support” thank you Erie

A place that is ruled by old, catholic, trade union, democrats. A city that is so backward that it uses it's government to tax people almost to death and invest in risky get rich quick schemes. People in the city can't go to a doctor, but the police and fire unions don't pay anything for their healthcare. Old Democrats set it up as an empire, it also may be the largest city of draining welfare people in Pennsylvania other than Philadelphia. It is a black hole of common sense.
Jon: look at the new Erie convention center, doesn't it look cool.
James: Yeah! it sure does and it had better because my kids' kid's are gonna be paying for it.

A highly underappreciated city in NorthWestern Pennsylvania. Everyone claims to hate it but in reality it is a model micropolis with 4 beautiful seasons, a thriving consumer and tourist market, good schools, 3 highly revered Universities, a beautiful and significantly cleaner lake and bay, Presque Isle State park and a very bipartison and fair local government. Everyone hates Nick Scott here but hes the man.
This morning I sailed across Lake Erie and had lunch, but when I got home there was 8 feet of snow so I went to peek n peek and skied all day.

The poorest city in all of Pennsylvania, population 280,000. Home to the best Pennsylvania hip-hop artist: D-Lo.
Home of Bob Sanders.

Home of the lead singer from Train.

Home of where there's a bar on every corner and a church on every other.
So, once you leave, are you coming back?

Nah, man, Erie is full of drunks and idiots and I don't want any part of it.

A delosate city with no jobs unless you own a bar or beer distributer. "Erieites" are people who have serious mental problems. Why would someone live in a place that is fridged 10 months out of the year, with nothing to do. The main profession in the strange place is being a professional alchohlic, which you are awarded a higher ranking in "erie" society. People that choose to stay and live in Erie are complete losers with no self-esteem.
Jane "Mom we should go back to Erie and visit family in friends we haven't been there in a decade"!

Mom "No Jane that's a horrible idea. We may develop psychosis and have flashbacks of when we used to live there."

Jane You are right mom is the reason I have been in rehab 10 times is because....

Mom Yes Jane, because you grew up in Erie.
