It's pretty much the attitude they have that somehow that region is relevant and the world revolves around them. It's also quickly followed up with the attitude that if you don't believe it you can get the fu ck out.

It's a feeling of entitlement and that you are responsible for sharing your success with them if you make it big because in their minds, "they" let you and now you owe them.

I think it's the minimum wage mentality- give me more for doing less? Or a welfare mindset and feeling like it's perfectly normal, good, acceptable like the cool in thing. Cool like uggs and north face

Half moons, riggies, blue wings, greens, tomatoe pie, perogies, flattended penny souvenirs, anchiovi pizza, duck tape, deep fried oreos, NY State's first and only public POLYTECHNIC University and a certain drink, which name escapes me now. Yup all Utica area. FYI- Turkey Joints, BUCKS seasoning, beer can turkey and canolis are ROME inventions people! Get your facts straight! Also, the very first attempt at an Irish, St. Pattys Day gay parade was made in Utica, NOT NYC or SAN FRAN...

Wow. Regional foods. You do realize that every region has region specific food. Drive 40 miles outside of utica and ask someone what a turkey joint is? Lol

It means this:

"Durrrr... derp derp durrrrr..."

...and also slamming (to oblivion) any constructive criticism whispered against the Mohawk Valley area. If you look at your own question, you'll see that (just for asking the question) you've been down-voted to negative hell by the Utica Positivity Brigade!

If you need a visual, watch how this comment will get down-voted 6 deep within the hour! It's fun trying to trigger the UPB censor, er, sensor!

Awww the poor welfare SREGGIN above.

Post what you do for a living welfare trash above, lets have a laugh at the welfare failures that mock when they can't get real jobs.

Now besides that sow you call mom, post what you do koon, or living off obama the REGGIN.

I bet people wish they were on welfare posting from dexter with never a real life.

Its also the same mentality of electing dumb ignorant eyetalians to run the city and keep putting the city further in debt year after year. And paying homage to the holy father who started it all...Rufie Elefante
