Failtown

7013324681_b82965d0a7_b

Failtown | Nickname | A blanket criticism of the Yaletown neighbourhood, on account of it supposedly being full of “fail”, as purportedly evidenced by an abundance of swollen collagen lips, overdressed lapdogs, steroidal douchebags in leased sports cars with fake tans and fauxhawks, and the kind of NIMBYs who would be so low and self-absorbed as to complain about cold weather shelters.

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