Last week we asked you to describe Richmond in two words, building off a random tweet we saw and loved.

Some answers we got and loved:

  • 🤤 Deliciously historical.
  • 🐀 River rat.
  • 🚙 Bad drivers.
  • 👃 Weed smelling.
  • 👖 Jeans anywhere.
  • 🌉 Bridge bigots.
  • 🖊️ Tattooed AF.
  • 😂 Confederate Portland.
  • 🥕 Diet Seattle.
  • ğŸ‘Ž NoVa hating.
  • ğŸ‘¨â€ğŸŽ¤ OG punks.

Our thought bubble: 👑 These were all great suggestions, but nobody sent in the obvious one, so we'll throw it out here and crown ourselves the winner: chicken bones.
