Flintoids Forever

When I was growing up in Flint, Michigan, that is the only Flint-centric thing I remember anyone saying. Flintoids Forever! People who are from Flint tend to have a weirdly strong loyalty to it, myself included. But to be honest, it’s not the easiest place to have a pride-filled slogan about. What are we supposed to say? Flint! It’s where Bob Eubanks was spawned! Or how about Flint: we make cars, or we used to, anyway! Or how about Flint, remember when we had that awesome sit-down strike?

There are people out there trying their best to come up with something better.

There are those that celebrate…our area code.

Hey, why not? It’s a DAMN FINE area code!

There are those that celebrate…our population!

This one makes me strangely nostalgic for some reason.

There are those that celebrate…the fact that we live in a place shaped like an appendage!

It’s us and Italy, yo. Do people from Italy point at their legs to show where they live?

But a lot of them? Are like this.

Or like this…

And my personal favorite.

I so totally need this one. It’s SO ME.

Flintoids Forever!

I’m out,
Librarian Girl
