So, apparently, New York and Los Angeles are distinct cities with their own cultural nuances. With all the people that want to move back and forth between the two coasts you'd figure that it'd become one big monoculture by now.

Jimmy Kimmel had camera crews hit the streets of both cities and had the respective locals do their best impressions of their comrades across the country. No surprise, New Yawkers (is that how they sound?) think we eat a bunch of salads with salads, and Angelenos think New Yorkers are a bunch of fat Italians who call pizza "pie." Probably accurate. That first guy who thinks we sound like "a dog with peanut butter on the roof of their mouth" sure knows how to paint with words.

Is it true that New Yorkers can get Chinese food delivered at 4 in the morning?! Ugh, jealous.
