Last night Jimmy Kimmel (currently broadcasting live from Brooklyn) aired a segment in which his correspondent asked kids in both New York and L.A. what they think of the other city. You can always count on kids for their brevity and directness.

Kids in L.A., on NYC and New Yorkers:

  • "Um, they're kind of cranky sometimes, they ignore you when you go there."
  • "People are crazy."
  • "Very nasty... and people are sometimes rude. And there are rats, and a baseball team."
  • "Donald Trump's there."

Kids In NYC, on L.A. and Angelenos:

  • "Not really on the bright side, not that bright."
  • "Slow."
  • "They're mostly into plastic surgery, because they really want to look perfect."
  • "I hate Chase Utley."

In conclusion, Everyone is L.A. is always drunk, and the dumbest person in L.A. is Kim Kardashian.
