This was passed along to be by a New Yorker (thanks, Rizza) and I must say I laughed out loud.  Only the Onion would title a piece “8.4 Million New Yorkers Suddenly Realize New York City A Horrible Place To Live ,We’re Getting The Hell Out Of This Sewer,’ Entire Populace Reports.”

A favorite quote:
I always had this perverted sense of pride because I was managing to scrape by here,” said Brooklyn resident Andrew McQuade, who, after watching two subway rats gnawing on a third bloody rat carcass, finally determined that New York City was a giant sprawling cancer. “Well, fuck that. I don’t need to pay $2,000 a month to share a doghouse-sized apartment with some random Craigslist dipshit to prove my worth. I want to live like a goddamn human being.”

Completely worth the read.
