    HAHA he even said DC BRAU correctly WOW!

    Right on point is the very first thing “So what do you do?” 

    • Tucker

      I agree.  I would have also followed that up with both “I’m a lawyer” and “I’m a consultant”

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=782922494 OmoNaijaa Are

        EVERYONE is a consultant!

    • Fred Flinstone

      My reply to that question is “That’s such a lame DC question. You got anything better?” It totally disorients and shames the DC-resident for asking. You should try it, it’s hillarious to watch people’s reponses.

      Isn’t that one of the first questions a stranger asks you regardless of what city you are in?

  • Tedbritt

    so i know this is what everyone asks in dc but what do you do?

    He said DC BRAU correctly, but mispronounced Ian MacKaye’s name. It’s not Ian Macky, it’s Ian Muh-kay.

    • Tucker

      I think that was the point.

    I’d have added: “The lines at Ben’s are so long… but the chili is so worth it!” 

    Other than that, perfection.

    This is great!  Yay for DC Brau!  Also, in addition to humidity complaints, don’t forget complaints on the cold, the rain, the traffic, and the allergies.

    I think I’ve seen this one already.  Didn’t we already do Shit Entitled White Assholes Say?  Or am I misremembering?

    • chet

      ^ this should be the actual “shit people from DC say”

      • Tiactaylor

        The thing is people FROM DC, hardly say any of these things. Perhaps it should be titled, “Shit People That Work in DC  Say”

    I loved this. Then I reminded myself that more than 50% of the population of DC is not part of this neurotic white segregated world. The African American majority of DC probably doesn’t often fantasize about a Fugazi reunion, or tremble in fear at the thought of Anacostia.

    • michael

      i see your point, but if they did a “shit people of all races and creeds from DC say,” we’d be sitting here calling them racists.

      • Sean

        You mean Black… The majority of dc is black. African American implies you are from Africa.. As in 1st gen immigrant who changed citizenship. Youre white, the majority is black… Not European American, nor African American.

        • DictionExpert

          You mean Dark Brown…  The majority of dc is dark brown.  Black implies a complete lack of color.. As in pitch black darkness.  Chet is white, the majority is dark brown… Not off-white, nor black.

          • DictionExpert

            Sorry, I meant “Ted is white”.  I have no idea what color Chet is.  I’m imagining a deep chartreuse, although I might be wrong.  Just a shot in the dark.

          • http://www.halfheartedfanatic.com/ Ted

            I’m actually kind of pink.

    • PCisSo90s

      I’m trying to figure out if this comment is a joke or not, as this would be the response of many of my, shall we say, “overly sensitive” friends in DC (who look and talk a lot like the people portrayed). 

    • I Am the 50.7%

      Considering he got only a split second of screen time and was kind of there in the background, perhaps the dude playing the buckets outside of the Verizon Center was meant to represent the “white DC”‘s view of black DC.

    z – really funny.  sorry i had to leave the city in a hurry it had to do with exposing myself to a saudi prince while i was in line to get into a swingers party for men and their tropical fish (I brought my pet guppy).  Even after I had swept this asshole’s rafters he gave me the option of castration or exile.  in nh. call me.

  • jhb

    I haven’t lived in DC since the early ’90s and yet about 2/3ds of this still sounds familiar–and, as others have said, reminds me why I left. If you ever do a remake, you might add, “I don’t know anything about Virginia/Maryland; I live in the District.” In case I missed it . . . or no one makes the distinction anymore. Ha.

  • DC Native

    this is not what I said growing up in DC. Probably for the DC transplants. but not native kids.. 

  • Tony

    Lol – so true you can hear almost everyone of those comments on any given night in DC

    Welll…what white people who have been here a while say, anyway.

    well DC has certainly changed from when I grew up there.  I was born there in 56. 

  • Aarjak

    yeah NB go fucking die you mother fucker

  • Nottyblue69

    sounds like {insert city name}!  Any and every place with more than 3 singles between the ages of 21 – 35!  Funny stuff

  • I’m just sayin’

    unfortunately, some of these statements make me think of Los Angeles!  and ummm, can we get one of these videos made that’s actually “shit people in DC say.”  That would be cool because the DC I know isn’t this white-washed…oh wait, gentrification.

    I am only in half concurrence with these comments.  I am more concerned with who this guy is– he’s attractive. So serious.
