1. Our phallic symbol in our Torontoist logo is bigger than your phallic symbol in your LAist logo.

2. Our prostitutes don't get killed as much!

3. We have snow! and Tobogganing!

4. For several months every year we're spared that pesky warmth that L.A. residents have to put up with ALL YEAR ROUND. Suckers.

5. You don't need a car to live here.

6. We only have to put up with your celebrities once a year.

7. We don't have a stupid sign.

8. Our celebrities aren't very famous.

9. LA's music festival is called LAMF (heh), and this is its myspace. Toronto's music festival is called NXNE, and this is its myspace.

10. We have a downtown.
