    :lmao: :laugh2: I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard when I saw this article as one of the top 5 Yahoo web articles. Now, I shouldn't laugh since I friggin scare myself when I look in the mirror, but it's just flat out funny. Let's give a loud "F-A-G-S Eagles!!!!!!!!!!!" cheer to Philly.

    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Philadelphia is home to the least attractive people in the United States, a survey of visitors and residents showed on Friday.
    The city of more than 1.5 million people was also found to be among the least stylish, least active, least friendly and least worldly, according to the "America's Favorite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.

    About 60,000 people responded to the online survey -- at -- which ranked 25 cities in categories including shopping, food, culture, and cityscape, said Amy Farley, senior editor at the magazine. For unattractiveness, Philadelphia just beat out Washington DC and Dallas/Fort Worth for the bottom spot. Miami and San Diego are home to the most attractive people, the poll found. But Farley pointed out the results don't mean people in Philadelphia are ugly or the city is a bad place to visit.
    "We were asking people to vote on attractiveness, not unattractiveness. Travel & Leisure editors believe there are a lot of attractive people in Philadelphia," she said. "The relative attractiveness of its residents is only a minuscule factor in evaluating a city's merit." Philadelphians' self-esteem has been undermined by national surveys showing they are among the fattest people in the United States. The American Obesity Association ranked the city in the top 10 for overweight people every year between 2000 and 2005.
    And sporting pride in a city known for the fierce loyalty of its fans has been hurt by not having had a national champion in any of its four main sports since the 76ers won the National Basketball Association title in 1983.

    I think this should be moved to the Fan Zone. :D

    FYI that DFW was top three for unattractiveness along with DC. Basically, the NFC East is ugly.

    I know many attractive people in Philly. Atleast in South Philly there is. There are the cows and there are the beautiful women, which each city has.
