Clearly, Hawks Forward Josh Smith Has Never Heard Of Jeffrey Dahmer

Woo-hoo! In your face, Milwaukee!

I guess going up two games to none against the Milwaukee Bucks gave Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith a boost of aloofness, because he just threw the lovely city of Milwaukee (pronounced “mill-e-wah-que” which is Algonquin for “the good land) under the bus. Smith took some unnecessary potshots at the Midwestern jewel Thursday after someone asked him about his plans when the series moves to Milwaukee, opining that “everybody knows there’s nothing to do” in the town.

Smith says he’s never really done anything in Milwaukee and will “just be happy to find a restaurant.” When a reporter jokingly asked if he’d ever take a vacation there, Smith replied, “Would you go? Everybody knows there ain’t nothing to do in Milwaukee.”

I hate to burst Smith’s egotistical, holier-than-thou bubble, but there are tons of fun things to do in Milwaukee. For one, you can go visit all the gay bars Jeffrey Dahmer used to frequent when he was on the prowl for victims. That’s fun for the entire family.
