We are not Boston, though Boston is pretty cool too.

Yesterday The Onion ran a piece titled “Pretty Cute Watching Boston Residents Play Daily Game Of ‘Big City’.” They poked fun at everything from the transit system to the nightlife. The article also made fun of Chicago, but fortunately not of Washington, DC. We are a real city after all.

My favorite thing (everyone's favorite thing?) about Boston.

My favorite thing (everyone’s favorite thing?) about Boston.

The Onion’s piece was cool, but cooler still was Boston’s reaction to it. Instead of taking a cue from North Korea and getting all angry about it like it was a “real” story, the Boston Globe countered with this. Touche, Boston. Well done.
