What ‘Urban Dictionary’ Has to Say About Tri-Cities

We’re big fans of Urban Dictionary and we found out that people have entered descriptions of real places! So we decided to find out what people had to say about Pasco, Richland and Kennewick. Check it out below:

Tri-Cities

Have you seen Napoleon Dynamite? This is the Tri-Cities in a snap-shot, however, we were blessed with better clothes. Tri-Cities, Washington is comprised of three small towns: Kennewick, Richland, and Pasco. Kennewick is known as the town with a low crime rate, Pasco as the one with the barrios however also housing the richest of the rich along the Columbia River, and Richland is there in the middle (reg. crime, nicer houses than Kennewick). However the most interesting part about this little city is the 3 basic job categories: Illegal Mexican immigrant/druggie, Farmer, or Government worker(the Tri-Cities has one of the largest rates of PhD’s per capita in WA). Not exactly Tiny-Town, U.S.A. considering that during the Cold War the Hanford Nuclear Reservation made (and managed to spill most of) the Plutonium used to manufacture nuclear weaponry. We don’t need flash lights since the berries along the river shine with a lime green radioactive light. Not to be totally negative, I’d have to say that the farmers raise us a BEAUTIFUL crop of teenage boys. At Clearwater and Columbia Center Bldv. is our local skyscraper, topping a monumentous 4 stories. Referred to commonly as “The Flash Cube”, this building resembles an olden-days camera flash cube. But possibly my favorite tourism site, is our dinosaur population. Out in a field in Pasco, lives out resident Brachiosaurus. Towering over the small rural road like a scarecrow over the wheat-feilds and pig sties of the area. Granted, this dino is just plastic, but honestly, how many towns can boast they they have a 10foot “scare-crow”? Normal little town? I think not.

Kennewick

sweetest place EVER. Part of the Tri-Cities (also known as the Dry Shitties or Dry Schneeze) in South Eastern Washington. Wine and boating? Who can go wrong?

I live in Kennewick.

Richland

A city (part of the Tri-Cities) with a deceiving name. While you may expect mansions and fancy cars and Mexicans mowing lawns fenced by white picket, you get there and think, “Hey! This place kind of looks like shit!” I love Richland.

That’s not a mansion! That’s a house with chipped paint and yellow grass! How lovely. Go Richland!

Pasco

one of the tri-cities, pasco is currently where all the mexicans are coming, (probibly because of the new wal*mart)and where almost everything is either new houses or fields of potatos, corn, or wheat. pasco was where all the gangs were, untill kennewick started to be the new spot for drugies. either way, it sucks to live in pasco. (granted there is a nice river view of the columbia river)

don’t live in pasco, richland is much better.

Pasco is the city that dominates in the tricities. Even though the other cities, (ie Kennewick, Richland, etc.) try their hardest to give Pasco a bad reputation, Pasco always comes out on top. Students in Pasco have a better understanding of the real world. A good motto for Pasco High School would be, “talk shit, get hit”. And I’m sure people from other schools wouldn’t be able to handle it. Also, Pasco is getting really nice houses in different parts. Pasco is just the best all around place to live in.

everyone loves pasco

Finley

a boy’s name meaning “fair-haired warrior”, which refers to Viking heritage. A bad-ass dude with brains and brawn. Typically musically gifted and all the girls want him. Nickname is commonly “Finn”.

Of course she wants him, he’s a Finley.

Dude, you rock on that guitar, Finley!

an awesomely cool girl who doesn’t know shes beautiful. She never seems to notice the boys who are attracted to her romantically but always seems to have drunken hookups with the assholes. A Finley is very loyal to friends and would do nothing to hurt anyone.. except for a small rodent that runs in front of the car. a Finley can get wild at any moment of the day with a switch of a button. you will always have a good time when a Finley is around.

john: daamn, i wish i could hang around some Finleys today…

adam: yeah i know, every time we do its always a new adventure.
