An area of northeast London, UK, situated in Newham, one of the poorest boroughs in the city. It has recently acquired some degree of fame as the location of the main Olympic Stadium for London 2012, leading to it becoming known as the "Olympic Borough". The problem with this is that it has led to the whole area being a perpetually unfinished mess of roadworks and chewing gum, with the glitz and glamour of Westfield and the Stadium separated by a literal wall of shops from the grimy residential areas full of kebab houses, flower shops and knife crime. In short, a complete and utter mess. To be avoided if at all possible - unless you live there, in which case you probably don't have enough money to leave.
Since the Olympic building projects got underway I've found it increasingly difficult to leave my house, since I live in Stratford.

Where the men are men and the woman are too. You’ll be lucky if you find somebody with teeth and everybody’s dating their cousin.
Girl 1: your moms only 30 why doesn’t she have any teeth?

Def. 1 Stratford is a pretty little town at least 45 minutes from anything useful. Here you can find the festival theatre, where we put on shakespearean plays and musicals - we're world renowned for it! You can also find - um - uh- let's see- we're the pork capital of ontario!
Def. 2 Hell for unique, interesting, non-drinking/punky teenagers.
Darling, let's visit scenic Stratford, which pretends to be cultured when it's really just another dying farm town!

When in a pool with a hot girl, one slides her bathing suit over to finger bang her.
Courtney looked like she was talking to Kevin, but really he pulled a Stratford Slide on her.

A small town.
We have melonheads.. and they are real. Go to Roosevelt Forest and check them out.
2 high schools.
Biggest hang out = Club 711.
The BK lounge is a close second.
We drink beer.. but thats pretty much it.
We're good at some sports.
If you don't have a decent tan or aren't of a hispanic decent, get out.
Stratford girls are the hottest around, surrounding towns say there must be something in the water.
Short Beach is GORGEOUS.
We have a really good looking police force (i.e.- Officer Rivera).
If you have younger friends and no money for tuition, your poor ass gets Housatonic.
If you are a guidette princess or guido papi and cannot resist to escape the HoTt ClUbbZ in gun wavin new haven.. SCSU if right for you!
If you're feeling rebellious, and drinking at a dry campus gets you riled up, Eastern is a great option.
If you like long car rides, and a slightly diverse/redneck population, or simply are void of an identity, Western suits your fit.
If you fall into the top 10% percentile of your graduating class, you may either opt to get the fuck out of this state if you have a head on your shoulders, or stick to UCONN because, well.. they do have a good Spring Weekend.
In Stratford, every appears happy, cheerfuly and continuously smiling.. no one really knows if everyone is just stupid or drugged up on Xanax.
Girl from Shelton High: "Hey Lisa, where are you going to school next year? I'm going to University of Hawaii and then studying abroad in Taiwan."

Girl from Bunnell High (Stratford, CT): "I'm probably going to take a year off and go to Housatonic (House of Chronic). Southern is sooo overrated."
