Urban Dictionary's definition of "s***hole" hits close to home in NE Kansas

By  | 

LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) — A vulgar term reportedly uttered by President Donald Trump is hitting close to home - at least for people who look it up in Urban Dictionary.

The Washington Post reports President Trump referred to African countries as "s***holes" during a meeting with congressional leaders regarding immigration.

While the report has stirred plenty of controversy and condemnation, a quick check of Urban Dictionary reveals hundreds of people think that term better suits a particular northeast Kansas city.

The second definition listed on the website, which is dedicated to defining slang terms that haven't quite made it into the OED or Merriam-Webster, takes aim at Lawrence, Kansas, and doesn't come close to beating around the bush.

It dives right in, listing the definition simply as (and we have edited it a bit):

"Lawrence Kansas is a college town, home to the University of Kansas (obscenity) where a large amount of douche bags reside. It's also known throughout the US as a s***-hole."

The example sentence doesn't let up either, reading "I would never live in Lawrence KS, it's a total s***-hole."

And, while this might not be the most complete definition of the term, a lot of people apparently agreed. It's the second most popular of seven definations on listed. It, posted in 2011 by "musicboss," has garnered 811 thumbs up vs. just 185 thumbs down.

And, we wanted to give it a thumbs-down too.
