  • but it's in October,

  • I think it's the 17th or something,

  • but, yeah it's so dumb,

  • we already have one of these,

  • it's Valentines Day.

  • [laughs] Someone just woke up in October

  • and was like,

  • "This is a holiday 'cause I have a girlfriend today."

  • [laughs] Like I don't know what happened,

  • we just, I don't know.

  • Does anyone else know about this holiday?

  • Yeah.

  • Dead Man's Curve.

  • It's this really sketchy turn

  • on the highway downtown.

  • It's like right outside of downtown

  • as your exiting it, I guess, you know you just,

  • you're leaving, you're driving towards the lake

  • and the turn just goes [whooshes]

  • And everyone's going super fast

  • when we're going around it so.

  • I got pulled over, fun fact,

  • one time going through Dead Man's Curve

  • after I saw Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift.

  • O, this says O-H-I-O,

  • I just assume that it means like

  • the common response 'cause when people see

  • a fellow Ohioan they go, "O-H,"

  • and then you're supposed to go, "I-O."

  • - [Woman] Do you do it?

  • - No, but let's do it right now, O-H!

  • - [Camera Crew] I-O!

  • Kinda cool.

  • Thats Jake, thats Jake [laughs]

  • Oh my god, thats Jake is so funny

  • 'cause it's like

  • I've never ever heard anyone else

  • say that outside of Cleveland,

  • but like it means, that's whack.

  • Like that's dead, like that's corny.

  • That's dead is also a Cleveland term.

  • Who is Jake?

  • No one knows, I don't know,

  • but he must suck 'cause he got,

  • that is like the, like you don't wanna be like Jake.

  • Pop.

  • Don't start this argument with me.

  • Don't get mad when I say I want an orange pop,

  • and be like, "It's soda."

  • It's mother [bleep] pop.

  • Next.

  • [Machine Gun Kelly & camera crew laughs]

  • Damn it!

  • Po' Boy.

  • Po' Boy's like a sausage.

  • It's super bomb.

  • Do you have corn, is corned beef on this list too?

  • 'Cause if it's not corned beef should be on here too.

  • Corned beef sandwiches, we kill those in Cleveland.

  • I do miss that, I miss like, corned beef,

  • I miss hood clubs.

  • Hood clubs like roast beef and turkey and cheese

  • like melted together, and then put on the bread afterwards.

  • It's bomb.

  • Cuyahoga, that's the county.

  • Cuyahoga County.

  • Cuyahoga County jail.

  • Put-in-Bay [laughs]

  • It's, this little island where everyone goes

  • to get [bleep] up.

  • Yeah you take ferry to get there,

  • and it's just an island full of bars.

  • - [Woman] It's called the Bahamas of like, Cleveland.

  • - The Bahamas of Cleveland [laughs]

  • That's so tight.

  • That's also a very weird name,

  • and now that I'm looking at it,

  • and now that I think about what goes on in Put-in-Bay,

  • I'm kind of like, this is gross [scoff laughs]

  • Like you know what you meant when you named it this.

  • Corn hole is a game that you play with a partner,

  • and a piece of wood that's propped up like this

  • with a hole in it.

  • And then you throw the bean bag and try to get it

  • in each other's hole.

  • Suckers.

  • Oh, no one else calls it suckers?

  • The [bleep] is wrong with everybody?

  • What else would you call it, a lollipop?

  • That's not us, that's a you thing.

  • You guys are weird [background laughing]

  • We got it right on that one.

  • The Rapid.

  • The Rapid is the train.

  • The red line is the Rapid that goes on the west side,

  • the green and blue line is on the east side.

  • Sometimes you call it the Reta,

  • 'cause the acronym is R-T-A.

  • We've had some weird times on the Rapid,

  • but also great times.

  • Like everyone goes on the Rapid when I wanna go downtown

  • for Saint Patty's Day.

  • Saint Patty's Day they go off like it's,

  • it looks like Jesus came back from the dead or something,

  • like we're celebrating some like miracle.

  • Like I'm always like,

  • why are we going so hard for this?

  • And then I'm like,

  • oh, we all just loved to get [bleep] up,

  • which is tight so,

  • we're just a town of people who just love

  • to make a big deal out of stuff that,

  • really isn't that big of a deal,

  • like, we'll all go to the Browns game

  • and act like we just won the [bleep] championship

  • when we lost by 30 but like,

  • we have good spirits.

  • Am I right, Cleveland? [laughs]

  • Christmas Ale.

  • If you ever go to a Cleveland restaurant,

  • and they have Christmas ale in season, you must order that.

  • It's just a thing.

  • They make it locally, or they brew it locally.

  • It's just what you're supposed to do

  • around the holidays.

  • The Cleveland Curse.

  • The Cleveland Curse is a 54 year losing streak

  • of never winning a championship.

  • We hadn't won a championship in 54 years,

  • so people said we were cursed.

  • The Q.

  • This is very important,

  • because as a Clevelander,

  • I am not calling that new basketball stadium

  • whatever the [bleep] new name they just decided to call it.

  • What is it called now?

  • - [Woman] The Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

  • - The Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse,

  • I am so appalled,

  • I can't believe they named it that dumb [bleep].

  • This is the arena always and forever.

  • The Q, basketball stadium, downtown,

  • where LeBron played, where Kyrie played.

  • The Q for life.

  • The Flats.

  • That's a area downtown

  • that's on the lake,

  • it's a bunch of bars and restaurants,

  • and I actually have a coffee bar slash restaurant

  • in the Flats.
