    Sadly not for anything to be proud of. I even heard this on Bob and Tom this morning. I give you:

    Man tries to climb down chimney (you Tube video of incident)

    Stick with it to the end where she throws bottles at him.. This is white trash plain and simple.

    Wow, I went to Evansville a few times to fix some machinery at old national bank - I thought it seemed like such a nice little town!

    It is... this is the south side of town. Go west, north or east and your fine. South is more redneck/white trashy

    You mean girls don't like it when you try to sneak into their house? Now wonder they keep calling the cops on me.

    Haha, my town, Shelbyville, made the news awhile back. "Highest Dropout Rate in America." It was in TIME MAGAZINE. All the stupid-ass Superintendents were so happy.

    Evansville only ever attracts national attention for embarrassing or stupid reasons. I submit the following examples.

    1) Our mayor was featured and interviewed on the Daily Show when he elected to attend a Cher concert in leiu of a public forum on the city's horrendous sewer system that floods the streets if we get, like, 1/16 of an inch of rain, because "he already had the tickets."

    2) We almost killed beloved Johnny Carson-era Tonight Show bandleader Doc Severinsen a couple of years ago, when he was visiting the city and a house exploded beside the car he was riding in while he was sitting at a traffic light being given a tour of the city. No, I don't mean a house was on fire. It EXPLODED, and apparently everything was incinerated in less than a minute.

    3) We are the home of a man who sued our local casino riverboat because of his addiction to gambling. Wait, wait, it gets better. The casino had banned him from the premesis, and he continued to sneak on to the property, stealthily avoiding guards and staff who might recognize him. His lawsuit claimed the casino didn't try hard enough to keep him away after they banned him, even though he was actively trying to avoid detection by sneaking on to the boat and avoiding the sight of staff.

    But here's the thing. Evansville is a really nice place to live. Compared to other cities of our size, we have a low cost of living, below average crime, a thriving community for the Arts, a nice Parks system, two well respected colleges, a pretty good and diverse nightlife, an inexplicably revitalized downtown (something every city has tried to do but few ever accomplish), and an awesome and enormous street festival that recently passed Mardi Gras as the biggest in the world. For anything we don't have, we are conveniently centrally located between St. Louis, Indianapolis, Nashville, and Louisville, making it easy to make a day trip to any one of those cities for, say, professional sports or larger rock concerts. But for whatever reason, anytime Evansville makes waves outside of the Tristate area it's for outrageously ridiculous reasons like a dude climbing down a chimney.

    Don't forget the ridiculous article in Forbes last year (or earlier this year) that said Evansville was one of the ten most expensive places for a date. Total Bullcrap...
