(Stuff) People in DC Say

So how much do you pay for your English basement?

We want to punch everyone who says these things... but we say a lot of these things (Stand to the right, already!). That makes this the most enjoyable self-loathing ever.

Someone has finally dragged the District into that "Sh*t ______ Say" meme. (Ugh, those memes are so much better in New York.) The video comes from SocialStudiesDC, the offshoot of LivingSocial also behind the much enjoyed/maligned DC Stereotypes Map.

Let's get right down to business, shall we? 

  • What do you do?
  • So where are you from? No, where are you originally from?
  • I'm a grant writer for a nonprofit that deals with microfinance.
  • Shaw is like the next Columbia Heights.
  • Stand to the right.
  • Stand to the right.
  • Stand to the right.

Then come the references to English basements (only $1400 a month!), cupcakes (over? not over?) and Brightest Young Things. It's like we don't even need to go out anymore to hear this stuff! We'll just watch this on repeat for awhile and drink a DC Brau at home.
