Burbia: suburbs with attitude

Filed Under: miscellaneous

The creators of Burbia are "living life on the edge...of the patio." Har har. Burbia is all about light-hearted yet edgy humor -- "the suburbs with attitude," they say. The site is a fun outlet for people like you and me, who somehow found themselves residing in the suburbs, mowing lawns and DIY'ing on weekends, yet don't see themselves as your typical suburbanites.

There are many things I'm really liking about Burbia. Thing 1: funny little not-your-usual-inspirational-quotations. Like the current example: "A prudent man does not make the goat the gardener." Hmm. Thing 2: Burbia's "Overheard" page. Read the shocking and/or inane comments the Burbia team have overheard or that their readers have sent in. Have something to contribute? Send it in! Thing 3: "Safari:" who can resist photos with funny captions. Warning: major time-waster. Yup. Burbia even has a little online store, with some of their bestest humor emblazoned on the usual products: mugs, ball caps, and hoodies. Example: "Pro-Choice: I Choose Not to Mow the Lawn."

All this stuff reminds me: how did I end up a lawn-mower-owning suburbanite anyway?!

    ... I don't know how you ended up a lawn-mowing suburbanite either, but at least you wound up with a really pretty dog. :)

    Thanks. He is the greatest. We LOVE him. And people admire him wherever we go. He's such a star!
