Miami: White Trash City, U.S.A

MIAMI-- In order to promote Miami's attitude towards its architectural, artistic, and cultural treasures, the Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce unveiled its new ad campaign aimed at attracting those who don't need culture and won't miss it. Called "Miami: White Trash City, U.S.A." the campaign's message will be delivered in English and Spanish. The official band for the new campaign will be Southern Culture on the Skids.
When asked why old white guys were used as models, a spokesman for the Chamber said, "We couldn't use women or minorities because they might sue us for depicting them in such a manner so we went for the next best thing: the aging white male good-ol'-boy population. Since few of them still reside here, the likelihood of getting sued is much less-- especially since they'll probably think it's some sort of compliment."

you can readily find "the aging white male good-ol'-boy population" in Miami Springs.

Do you think they'll sue?

I hope so. The more drama the better Vert.

What you need now is a moronic logo, like DWNTWN. I'd suggest "CLTR" with a red line through it, except people might read it as short for "clitoral." And then, or course, somebody would CERTAINLY sue.
