Kansas City. Change your perspective.

Magnet#574 - Kansas City, MO

Here's what I don't get.

Why is Kansas City in Missouri?

Why are there two Kansas Citys?

Why didn't one Kansas City say to the other Kansas City - dudes, that's our name, get your own damn name?

Do people from one Kansas City like the people from the other Kansas City?

Is there a bad Kansas City to be from?

What must it be like to be from Kansas City, and go, nooooo, the other Kansas City?

How much of a pain is it when people don't know that there's actually two towns?

Do they get each other's mail?

Yes. It's these things I think about when I think about Kansas City. Missouri. Or Kansas.

Someone brought this magnet back for me - I've never been, but now, I think I have too many questions not to go eventually.

And, yes, I've already looked up the factual answers to most of the above. I just liked asking the questions. And, as Voltaire (and our shiny new biz deck at work) said, "Judge of a man by his questions, rather than by his answers."

Lord, I don't even want to know what this post says about me. When you judge of me, judge well.
Pin It!

Maybe one's full of copycats? We always have to ask our writers to clarify which they mean. That's a pain.

dude. Gordon and I brought you this magnet from KC when we went to visit Katie. I love KC! Katie's from around there... you can ask her all these questions at the wedding. :) KCMO is MUCH better than KCKS. Hello? It's KANSAS... is there ANYTHING good there? all i saw was corn, a jail, and oddly, sunflowers driving through KS. MO is much cooler.

See? That's why I don't want to use magnet attributions - I couldn't remember who brought this one back from KC. I thought it was one of the guys from work.

Hey, I'm friends with your sis Jenny. I lived in Kansas City, MO. Yes, KCMO is better than KCK (the "proper" abbreviation and the one we used in headlines). My dad could never get it straight that I didn't live in Kansas!

I didn't even know there were two KCs till I moved there. LOL
