The Streets of West LA

Posted in Uncategorized on May 5, 2010 by blondenews

No, literally, the streets. Going west from the 405…
my little rhyme to remember the correct order.
Read it out loud for full effect.

So, I’ll tell ya’, (Sawtelle)
when I was studying the CORINTHians
at PURDUE
I had a BUTLER
named COLBY.
Don’t make a FEDERAL case out of it,
BARRY
BARRINGTON.
I know what a STONER you were back in the day…
living in the grand ville (GRANVILLE)
hangin at the WEST GATE.
It’d cost you an arm and a leg to live there now. (ARMACOST)
You oughta go down to BROCKTON beach and get yourself some
SALTAIRE before you turn into
Ted BUNDY.
Before he was a killer, he went to AMHERST
and dated a sweet girl who worked at WELLESLEY
named CARMELLINA.
But later he started hanging with cheap women like 10 Cent Ella. (CENTINELLA)

Four people stabbed by some crazy lady at the West Hollywood Target store. Off-duty sheriff’s deputy pulled a gun to stop her, which caused further confusion and general chaos and stampeding ensued.
