A city in Southeastern Pennsylvania that is extremely awesome. The Non-Philadelphians think this city is like hell but it beats out any city, period. It's got the best desserts (Tastykakes), the best sandwiches (Philly Cheesesteaks that are HOAGIES, not subs), the best pretzels, water ice (that's pronounced WOOTER ICE!), and the most awesome places to go to!

The United States got its Independence from Britain on July 4, 1776 in Independence Hall in Philadelphia. There are many historical places to go to including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.

"The City of Brotherly Love" is home to the most awesome sports including the awesome football team called the Eagles, the "phantastic" baseball team called the Phillies, the passionate basketball team called the 76ers, a.k.a the Sixers, and the orangest hockey team called the Flyers. Those stupid Non-Philadelphians call us the "worst fans," but most of them haven't been here. If they did, they would know we were the best!

Philadelphia has many nicknames.
-City of Brotherly Love
-City that Loves You Back
-The Best City Ever
-The Coolest City Ever
-The Tastiest City Ever
-The City that is so Awesome than NO other City can Compare!

1. A city that is falling apart thanks to poverty and deindustrialization.

2. A place where people from the clean, safe SUBURBS of Philly claim to live, but the reality is only poor black people live in Philly, alongside the white, suburban population that temporarily calls the city home as they pursue their degrees at Temple, La Salle Drexel, University of the Arts or U Penn.

3. A place that, although already rich in history, got screwed out of becoming the capital of the United States because of the Dixieolopoly that forced the "compromised" location of present day Washington D.C.

4. A city that can't seem to produce a championship in any sport, no matter how promising each year looks.

5. Getting screwed over in general
Person 1: Have you seen the Census of 1940 and the Census of 2000?
Person 2: Yes
Person 1: What the HELL happened to Philadelphia?

I thought I had been handed a philadelphia when I was the last to get dinner, but I quickly remembered that the city had been shafted ten times worse than I had and I was exaggerating my own problems.

Philadelphia is a very old, historical city (by North American standards) located in the Northeast region of the United States. Ironically, its name means "The City of Brotherly Love," but its residents whose families have occupied the city for generations are so rude and nasty that people were actively fleeing the city for decades, causing massive population loss. According to the recent census, however, the city has gained in population due to both international immigration and migration from the way-too-expensive suburbs. The newly-arrived people are very nice and friendly, yet they have to watch their backs around native Philadelphians.
Have you been to Philadelphia? The townies are really mean!

Basically the ugliest, dirtiest, most crime infested town you will ever fucking run across. Town boasts the Eagles who have never even won a fucking superbowl, the Flyers whose last stanley cup pre-dates the nation's bicentennial, the Phillies who have more loses than any other team in the majors, and a bunch of colleges who have never won anything like villanova, st. joes, and temple. A philly cheestake cant talk shit against a Primanti brothers sandwich. In philly there is nothing to do except go to bars and get in fights with the vile locals. PHILTHadelphia a disgusting city full of niggers who live off welfare and whites who think they are tough shit and never fucking shower. Thatโ€™s probably why that pathetic excuse of a city smells like a stanky and slimy pussy. People that live in philly are either too retarted to realize that they live in a shit hole or they are too poor to move anywhere else. The only things more pure than its inferiority complex to Pittsburgh is its heroin and its hatred towards progress, common sense and education. Like i said, its a dump.
Philadelphia is a wanna be New York, except with ALOT more black people. Lets move to Pittsburgh!
