Ten Signs You're From St. Louis

Categories: Lists

5. You make a fifteen-item BuzzFeed list about St. Louis that makes just one reference to any black citizen/cultural institution/location.File:White People.gif


6. That sole reference is kinda racist. ("People from North County are shady.")

7. Five of the fifteen items are about food -- or seven, if you count chimps and elephants as food (hello, Franklin County).

I don't know Susie??? The "where did you go to HS" question is pretty St. Louis to me??? Personally, I think that it's because St Louis has such a high percentage of people who grew up there still living there and it's a shorthand to figure out where to pigeonhole people quickly. "Ohhh, you went to Lemay??? (Thinks..."Hoosier!")

In other cities that question is about where people went to college or university, not high school.

11. You're a racist, regardless of skin color, but you don't want anyone to know.

11) You don't blink when you see yet another recycled article from RFT, because you're used to it.

I don't understand why St. Louisans think it is somehow unique to them to ask where you went so school. That is a typical question in about a million cities.

Honestly, I still think I'd rather read Buzzfeed's shit list as opposed to this trash

Of course that BuzzFeed list is predictable to anyone who grew up in or around St. Louis (i.e. NOT the target audience). Arguing about trivial bullshit sounds like a St. Louisan trait all right, like all that county stuff for example. Sheesh.

You forgot one: 

You break a 10-item listicle up into 3 pages to artificially goose the pageviews on an article mocking BuzzFeed.

RFT has done better work. This list just made you seem like some angry, living-in-mom's basement post.

I don't know what you all are going on about; this is way better than that stupid Buzzfeed list.

Come on RFT. You used to be good. You have extensive knowledge of the quirks of St. Louis. Make an actual list and stop this edgy bullshit. This is worse than Buzzfeed.
