Holy #$%&. Another mission to determine the rudest city in the world finds Boston in a much friendlier light than Travel and Leisure claimed earlier this year.
Social network giant Foursquare created its list of rudest cities in the world based on the percentage of expletives posted through check-ins. Manchester, U.K. came out on top, followed closely by El Paso, Texas, and Pittsburgh, which probably leapt to the forefront of the list at some point on the evening of Feb. 6.
Boston? After finishing sixth in the Travel and Leisure survey, the Hub finished the Foursquare list at No. 19, sandwiched in between Miami and Jacksonville, Fla. Of course, Daisuke Matsuzaka has yet to take the mound in 2011, so odds are that our standing will be much higher come summer.
Foursquare explains how they determined the results here, if you can translate, but regardless, the logic might be suspect for this very reason: Missing from the list is New York City. I mean, any list determining rude factors that doesn't have Manhattan on it has to be suspect, right? $#@& yeah.
