Urban Dictionary- friend or foe? It can be a source of information that helps you stay hip or at least understand what your kids are talking about. Other entries can be, well...embarrassing. So what does Urban Dictionary have to say about Kalamazoo?

The top definition is complimentary:


Yes it does exist! It's in Michigan and is a bigger town than people probably think, mainly due to the fact that it's home of Western Michigan University. There is also the much smaller Kalamazoo College, also called K College. There is usually plenty of to do in the area and the public library is nationally known.

True fans of Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo-ians and Kalamazoo-ites will not like nofly99's assessment:

A town where nothing occurs. I think our mascot is the... I dont really know, and nobody really cares. But we have the KWings, I guess thats pretty cool. Not really. Kalamazoo is shi--y, and horrible, the best thing we have here is maybe our library, it is pretty nice looking.
I just visited this town and i bought a shirt that said " Yes, there really is a Kalamazoo" - exept, people who really do here, buy these shirts...and wear them. NO shi-t there really is a kalamazoo, you live here dumbf**k

What say you? Is it time to update Urban Dictionary or is the site irrelevant?
