Ten Signs You're From St. Louis



Here at Daily RFT, we were quite intrigued when we stumbled upon the "15 Signs You're From St. Louis" BuzzFeed community post that popped up over the weekend. If you haven't already, go read it right now.

Pretty predictable, lame and disappointing, huh?

Fear not: We've made our own lil' listicle!

Without further commentary, ladies and gentlemen, we present to you RFT's real ten signs you're from St. Louis.

1. You're commenting on a poorly sourced BuzzFeed listicle about St. Louis.

2. You're arguing with other St. Louisans in those comments about the socioeconomic bias inherent in the one about the three counties.


3. You're correcting the current location of the Shane Company. (It recently moved!!)


4. You "wear red and bleed blue," but screw them Rams, amiright?

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).

8. St. Charles is rightfully unacknowledged on your list, because screw those guys, amiright?


9. You're in an office right now climbing an e-mail chain about how much is wrong on this list and suggesting better options for what really represents St. Louis for your own list.


10. The goddamn high school question stays on your list.
