Have you seen this sticky yellow-brown trail of an unidentified substance trailing through campus? Of course you have! This ish runs from 34th all the way past 39th, which is actually pretty impressive. We’re currently taking bets on long it’ll stay– a day? A week? Nah, probably a month. Gross.
[Update: Turns out the offensive goo is actually an eco-friendly deicer made up of either molasses and salt or beet juice. Neat, eh?]
Guess what, everyone? Philly is a dirty city! Really dirty! According to Travel and Leisure, the second dirtiest in the country. And without giving any specifics as to what it’s done to merit this title, the article goes on to say that Philadelphians “may not be helping with those first impressions,” what with their poor style and environmental ignorance.
We know it’s toxic, falling apart and filthy, but we still love Philadelphia for all of its quirky charm (cheesesteaks), its rich cultural and historical heritage (cheesesteaks) and its cheesesteaks. Sike! When’s the last time you got a cheesesteak in Philly? Anyway, what we’re trying to say is, yes, Philadelphia, we still love you. You’re not an overcrowded industrial gutter or a smoggy wasteland. You’re perfect!
