I sit at Rittenhouse Park and see a guy from Time Cycle give the finger to a passing motorist and it kind of makes me smile. This is the city of brotherly love... and crime, and we only bombed our own city once... one time. I'll show you around the city and where you can't go after dark and if skating's your thing, I'll show you where you cannot skate: at Love Park. The dialer doesn't work on any of our phones, but this is the place we call our home. Philly's a place where the Mummers are weird and I do not think the Phillies have won in years. I begged Mayor Rendell and the cops on the beat to have mercy on me and Jenn and please blow up South Street.

Philadelphia, get to know us.

The Philly Parking Authority can go fuck its own face, and yeah sure we've got a problem in dealing with race. A statue of William Penn stands on city hall, up high, he's kind of a loner. If you look at him from the right angle, it looks like he has a boner.
