Um, wow. Apparently Philadelphia is the least-attractive city in America:
The city of more than 1.5 million people was also found to be among the least stylish, least active, least friendly and least worldly, according to the "America's Favorite Cities" survey by Travel & Leisure magazine and CNN Headline News.

About 60,000 people responded to the online survey -- at www.travelandleisure.com -- which ranked 25 cities in categories including shopping, food, culture, and cityscape, said Amy Farley, senior editor at the magazine.

For unattractiveness, Philadelphia just beat out Washington DC and Dallas/Fort Worth for the bottom spot. Miami and San Diego are home to the most attractive people, the poll found.

Harsh. San Francisco ranked seventh in attractiveness, after Miami, San Diego, Charleston, Austin, Honolulu and Los Angeles (Charleston?). San Francisco did win the overall title in the category "people." I'm not sure what that means, but hopefully they'll use us in any government eugenics experiments.

I'm sure Philly ranked No. 1 in some categories, though, such as being most likely to "squirt Easy Cheese" and "throw batteries at players during sporting events."

What...I kid because I love.
