What Do People in Altadena Say?

"S--t People Say in L.A." is just the latest Internet take-off an YouTube video called "S--t Girls Say." So what do people in Altadena say?

If you spend any fraction of your day on Facebook you've probably seen a version of a video called "S--t [Insert Person/Place] Says."

The homemade hits are going viral on YouTube, giving people a humorous take on how people look at stereotypes.

One of the recent hits, "S--t People from L.A. Say" is definitely worthy of a few chuckles for me as a resident of the outer fringes of Los Angeles.  Some of the lines, particularly about parking, driving and biking, hit home for me (the video, which does contain some obscenities and is probably best not watched at work, can be viewed at right).

However, a lot of the video struck me as very much more relevant to the actual city of Los Angeles than lives out here on the fringes of Los Angeles.  After all, I rarely actually even enter the city of Los Angeles.

So it got me thinking about Altadena....what do Altadena residents say that is unique?  What would a 'S--t People from Altadena Say' video be like?

I'm not quite ready to volunteer to make that video yet, but I would like to hear your input on what people from Altadena say.  I have a couple of suggestions listed in the comments section below, but I want to hear yours.  Sharpen up your sense of humor and fire away!

" Yeah that would be GREAT but the County won't ever give us a permit for that......How long do you think we could do it before they figure it out.?"

To girl scouts and the adult chaperone who rang the doorbell " Sure I'd love to buy some cookies, I can never have enough Thin Mints, I'm sorry I have to go inside and get some more money from my wife. Oh you don't have the cookies with you today. Oh well, I guess we have to wait."

Look kid, what are you doing ringing doorbells and selling candy at 8 o'clock at night... you don't need a trip to Disneyworld! See you at the Coffee Gallery! Art, diversity, and lots of opinions. That's Altadena. What a view! La Canada got ANOTHER grocery store??? Why can't people buy their liquor at Ralphs? Do we really need a liquor store on every other corner? Our mountains are so beautiful! Another sunny day in paradise.
