New map divides Vancouver into such categories as poor people, gay guys, and old people

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Are you so politically correct that you find the Onion and all that it stands for riotously offensive? If so, now is the time to stop reading the city’s latest breakdown of who lives where in Lotusland. If you have zero sense of humour, be prepared to be outraged at the map, currently being retweeted like crazy on Twitter, which divides the city into such subdivisions as “old people”, “lesbian-hipsters”, and “gay guys”. (Click on map to enlarge.) It's funny as fuck--check out the Downtown Eastside for maximum laughs. And if it offends you, you probably don’t see anything even remotely funny about the Farrelly Brothers, Harold and Kumar, and everyone that’s ever written for Saturday Night Live, MADtv, and National Lampoon. It’s not like you weren’t warned to go elsewhere.

      I accurately fit into the 'college kids who can't afford it here' category. I won't argue that label..

      I'm in the 'lesbian/poor people overflow'. Am I no longer pertinent? Happy days for a dropout.

      I'm obviously in the wrong neighbourhood - where's 'middle-aged alky scumbags'? Oh no! Do I have to move to 'shit show'?

      Is there a source for this?

      The realization I live on the border between dead-zone and lesbian-hipster land certainly explains the comatose state of my love-life as a non-hipster heterosexual male.

      That is hilarious!

      "Rich families from old money" should be changed to "Rich Mainland Chinese children living in a house and attending St George's while their parents work in the mining and factory business back home in China."
