  1. I know! It’s as obvious as using a Spartan for Spartanburg! (Instead of something unrelated, like a Spark, or something…)

    “Oh, ho, ho, irony! Oh, no, no, we don’t get that here. See, uh, people ski topless here while smoking dope, so irony’s not really a, a high priority. We haven’t had any irony here since about, uh, ’83, when I was the only practitioner of it. And I stopped because I was tired of being stared at.”

    To be fair, I lifted that from the city’s nickname “Sparkle City.” Half the stuff in Spartanburg uses it’s other nickname, Hub City. Asheville suffers from a distinct lack of nicknames (other than Altamont, I guess).

    I officially nominate “Irony City” as Asheville’s new nickname.
