Little town in upstate New York, about an hour from Albany. Can you spell scummy? Probably not if you're from Johnstown. One of the best football programs in the Sir Bills Circle. If you've ever been here, you've probably lost some brain cells. The education system is terrific with foreign language options ranging from Spanish to Spanish. 90% of the fast food industry's employees are from this beautiful city. If you're smart enough to get out of here, do it.
What's the difference between a garbage can and Johnstown?

One's foul-smelling, filled with trash, and absolutely disgusting. The other one's a place where people put their garbage.

The hometown of potheads and well fair. All the druggies should probably move because their drug money will be gone when their kids get shot in school. Or maybe the government will move for you when you get evicted.
Johnstown is the place to go if you want to get shot

Would have been a beautiful lake after the flood, but instead they brought it back to be a failed dilapitated mining town

A college prank that probably has other names. Most commonly played in college dorms. The act of filling a trash can about halfway with water. Then you lean said trash can against a door. Knock on the door and run like hell. When the sucker goes to open the door, they get the onslaught of the water, going everywhere.

I call it the Johnstown Flood as I attend the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, and the name fits perfectly, if you're familiar with the town's history
When you Johnstown Flood someone, don't get caught. The "flood waters" can do some serious damage

Try at your own risk!

The feeling of dread and hopelessness that occurs when one visits or unfortunately lives in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. This syndrome causes everyone to become angry out of spite and be extremely rude to one another. The only thing going for this town is the amount of massive, devastating floods that have killed the entire town. If you’re lucky… maybe you’ll be in the next one and get flushed down the Conemaugh like your coal cracker ancestors.

“Dude, there’s too many coal crackers in this town with Johnstown Syndrome. I gotta get out.”
