Hictoria | Nickname | A nickname for BC’s capital city, Victoria. Meant to deride it as a backwards town of hicks. Its origins are self-deprecative, however, as it emerged from within rather than without.

Usage | “I once got beat up in Hictoria outside Soprano’s Biker Bar by a bunch of coked up Ed Hardy jocks…”explore-the-lexicon
