Are We Really This White and Boring?



The "Shit BLANK Say" thing has almost reached it's endpoint, hasn't it? With every minority combo and regional variation taken, the only option that remains is for people to break it down into individual family feuds, as in "Shit My Mom Says to My Dad," "Shit My Little Brother Says to the Dog," etc.

Anywho, Mason and Remy over at 93.7-FM have thrown their had into the ring with the so-so "Shit St. Louisans Say." I don't deny people in St. Louis say some of these things (I did have pork steaks twice this weekend after all), but this is a very bland and homogenous effort. Where's the old lady barfly who knows every side street in South City? Where's the dapper young black guy wearing earbuds who raps to himself while walking down the street? It's more "Shit Four White Guys Under 30 Who Work at A Radio Station in St. Louis Say" than it is representational of the city I live in.
