Woops! Thanks, Lopez.
My bad, Tangy, I obviously mistook you for serious.
Please forgive me.
In my defense, since moving to the east coast, I have met many people who maintain opinions very much akin to the one that you stated sarcastically. They've completely screwed up my radar for determining when someone is merely taking the piss.
Good luck with us East Coasters- and here I am wanting to move out west one day.
