This new video has been making the social media rounds.
Josh Potter of 103.3 The Edge has Tweeted: "406 reasons to love Buffalo... 403 are Food Reasons, the other three are Sabres, Bills & St Patrick's Day. I'm moving."
Ha, ha! It is pretty funny when the video goes into high gear, inundating you with picture after picture of wings and beer and beef on weck, Fat Bob's and Gigi's and the Olympic Restaurant. It is like a food fight. Splat! Splat! Splat!
Speaking of which, here is something we can all agree on. Someone, obviously a Buffalonian, writes on YouTube:
"it would be better if you didnt have a seizure from the pictures going
so damn fast. Slow the damn thing down and it would be 100X better."
All about how we are a vernacular, indigenous kind of place? That is a combination of adjectives we love, vernacular and indigenous.
We have just been laughing watching this video's country cousin.
There is so many things funny about this "other" Buffalo video!
The warmongering voice. The accusing beginning: "People see Buffalo as the end of the line." Etc. Then the shot of wildfires. "We don't have wildfires." And "We have neighborhoods. Try to find that in Phoenix."
Some Buffalonians got a lot out of their systems putting this together.
Remember the other day, when Spotify responded to all our playing of Christmas carols sung by the Vienna Choir Boys, the Choir of King's College Cambridge, etc. by recommending Bone Thugs-N-Harmony?
It has gotten worse!
Now Spotify is into breaking up our classical Christmas playlist by advertising, ahem ...
... We hate saying this! ...
... Trojan condoms.
What in the world, you know? It happened to a friend of ours, too. He wrote: "I'm listening to 'Christmas with Peggy Lee' right now on Spotify, and it keeps playing the same Trojan condom ad every few songs, complete with the 'Trojan Man' jingle."
That must have been the Trojan Man jingle we were hearing. It was really adult, is all we can say. Really adult.
Apparently CNBC considers our Skyway to be the nicest thing about Buffalo.
They didn't have a picture of Brian Higgins being the nicest thing about Buffalo, did they?
It keeps amazing us, all the problems that are overdue for fixing, and yet our public servants, led by Mr. Higgins, just will not let our perfectly good Skyway be. They never listen to us. Perhaps they will listen to CNBC.
Buzz signed up to follow the Pope on Twitter. He goes by @Pontifex. We were something like follower 255,676.
As a Buffalonian it is our duty to do our part to draw the Pope into discussions of wings, the Bills and what is going on with the old FWS building. You know that once he starts Tweeting -- he is scheduled to start on Wednesday -- he will quickly become involved with Buffalo. You just know.
A lot of people are throwing very nasty messages up at the Pope. But some messages are sweet and funny.
One we loved read simply: "Habemus Tweet."
When they elect a new Pope the message that goes out is "Habemus Papam," Latin for "We have a Pope."
Want to know what really frosts us? (Sorry, could not resist.)
Don Paul, Ch. 4 meteorologist, on Facebook, telling us in the middle of a sunny day that the season's first frost advisory is, well, tonight. That is not Don Paul pictured at left, by the way. That is the poet Robert Frost.
The good news is, this supposed frost forecast is just for Allegany and Cattaraugus counties. Also McKean and Potter counties which, where are those counties, anyway? Frost warnings are not too bad if they are in counties you have never heard of.
The frost warning is not for Erie and Niagara.
Those of us living in Erie and Niagara Counties may carry on with our chicken barbecues and barefoot meanderings through the grass.
And photographing trees in Delaware Park. Here is a picture I snapped earlier this summer.
And strolling on the waterfront. Here is an artsy picture I snapped last week of the Brig Niagara.
Meanwhile, as we go about these pursuits, it might also be time to hide Don Paul on Facebook.
"I am cautiously pessimistic about the upcoming weekend," he writes.
