Spoon Me + Provo = Even More Hatred than Before

You may remember a former mention of a beef I have with Utah County - Provo in particular.  There is also a frozen yogurt joint that I love.

Then comes the melding of what I love and what I hate, and hate wins out.  Why?  Because this happens:

And as if that weren't bad enough, there are also these:

The first video also showcases a classic example of Utah County speech: "Heater's broke."  That's right, that is right.  The heater is broke.

There are several Spoon Me locations in Utah, and as far as I know, they're all franchises.  It is more than telling that EVERY SINGLE HORRIBLE THING to come from a Spoon Me in Utah, comes from the Provo franchise (thank heavens the one near me is run by a cute little family).

Is it a coincidence that the same losers who run the Provo Spoon Me are likely the same losers who wear Shade shirts under their tube tops (or strapless wedding dresses), buy Bumpits by the truckload, and frantically rush the local grocery store at 11:30pm on a Saturday night? 

P.S.  I like to read Bumpits as Bum Pits.

Oy. You should move here. People don't seem quite as...what's the word?

HA HA HA! I just looked at the Bumpit website! Oh man...there's no excuse for that.

I just looked at the Bumpits website, too. I had no idea what it was! I guess I'm missing out here in Ohio. But I thought I'd share a VERY COMMON example of Ohio grammar: "The heater needs fixed." (See how I related that to yours?) Feel free to extrapolate that to any other verb->adjective (past participle) that needs "to be."
