How To Insult A Western New Yorker (Without Cursing)
As New Yorkers, we have to have some pretty thick skin. But as Western New Yorkers, some insults do cut a little deeper than others.
A lot of people like to talk bad about Western New York. Most of whom have never even stepped a foot in any of our towns. We know that Western New York can be pretty great. But there are certain things that people say about us Western New Yorkers that kind of feel like a shot below the belt.
Why do they still hurt?
Honestly, it's probably because many of them are true. The ones that are the toughest pills to swallow are the ones that make sense. If someone is just hurling insults like "All Buffalonians are stupid!" then they've probably never met most of us. A lot of them show that the people using them haven't even ever been here. The ones that are hard to take are the ones that have to do with our sports history, our weather, and of course, our wings.
I asked what you thought on Facebook and you came up with a ton of really good insults.
It's not the insults that they hurl that are important...it's how we handle them. It's how we snap back from them and how we respond. So here's a chance to get ahead of them. Here are some of the biggest insults people try to throw at Western New Yorkers to make us feel like we're not as good as the rest of the country. So how will you respond when someone throws one at you?
