Failtown | Nickname | A blanket criticism of the Yaletown neighbourhood, on account of it supposedly being full of “fail”, as purportedly evidenced by an over-abundance of shallow, self-absorbed NIMBYs who would be so low as to complain about cold weather shelters.

Usage: “It’s going to take decades for Yaletown to shed its Failtown image…”explore-the-lexicon
