• Comparison Shopping: Iowa versus Staten Island

    Extremely obvious city-slicker Rudy Giuliani recently toured small-town Iowa in an awkward attempt to curry favor with the farming community. At one point he even intimated that Staten Island was the Iowa of New York City. Was he right? Here's a look at them side-by-side:

    Iowa Staten Island
    Area 60,000 square miles 60 square miles
    Surrounded by… Corn Water
    Pervasive smell Manure, Green-bean Casserole Garbage, Marinara sauce
    Pet peeve Damn Wisconsin drivers! Damn Jersey drivers!
    Motto "Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain." "Damn Jersey drivers!"
    Originally formed by… Glaciers Glaciers
    Cheesy regional hairstyle Mullet Cop mustache
    Home of the… Country's highest concentration of radon (seriously) World's largest single source of methane pollution (Fresh Kills Landfill)
    Notable natives Tom Arnold, Ronald Reagan, Slipknot Christina Aguilera, Wu Tang Clan, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano
    Watershed historical event Opening of "Field of Dreams"(1989) Opening of Verrazano-Narrows bridge (1964)
    How's the Chinese food there? We're just guessing, but… bad? Good
