I can already see the federal-penitentiary buttsex jokes.

"The jail operates 365 days a year, twenty four hours a day."

for the sake of sanity

Butte is NOT pronouced butt.
It is pronounced be-ut with a long U. not uh.

I smell a goat.

Oh fine... *THIS* link makes it in, but the Butte County Fire Department's website doesn't get so much as a snicker.

(the link seems to be down right now, but when I submitted it last month, it had several informative articles on the Butte County fires that have been raging over the last 30 years, as well as online applications forms for becoming your very own Butte Fireman.)

Why does the butte county logo look like 2 big boobies?
2002-01-27 05:12:35 PM  
I actually live in Butte County. My city is pretty much the hub.

I am about to serve 48 hours in the Butte County Jail too. I have a court date at the Butte County Courtroom on Tuesday. heh..

This county is rockin some haggard shiat though. Chico State is in Butte County. The county is pretty small. I'm about 25 minutes from that jail. Weird seeing it on Fark.. heh

The pic on the intro page looks like an aerial of my high-school, back when I was a high-schooler...

Woo-Hoo! Butte County, CA! Our backwoods county finally made it on FARK!

Scape Yeah, it's pretty telling when the college is 10% of the county's population. And without it, Chico would just be another Oroville *shudder*.

MisterSquishy "The jail operates 365 days a year, twenty four hours a day." Duh.
Actually, around here, that's not necessarily a given.

Damn bold tags.
2002-01-27 06:59:06 PM  
heh...ya ain't been anywhere lest you been to Big Butte, Montana!
2002-01-27 07:05:28 PM  
if the jail wasn't operating, would that mean?....oh no, hundreds of convicted butte-heads running around causing havoc
2002-01-27 08:18:40 PM  
Where do you live GoingCoastal?

And there's no way Chico is even close to as bad as Oroville.. heh.
2002-01-27 08:25:21 PM  
Heh.. I'm from Chico too..
I left though when I was 18
2002-01-27 08:32:21 PM it purely coincidental that the building on the right looks like a toilet seat?

uh, this link is only amusing if your reading and pronunciation skills don't go beyond grade-school level.
2002-01-27 09:52:43 PM  
Hmm...grade-school sense of humor? Maybe so, but I think most of us know that it is pronounced 'byut'. It's just a joke.

I must admit, I also chuckled when I drove past Potato Butte in California a few years ago. If pronouncing it wrong for fun offends anyone, I apologize. The people in Titusville didn't like when my mom called their bowling alley, Titus Bowl, "Tidy-Bowl," either. :/
2002-01-27 11:19:09 PM  
I think most of us know the correct pronunciation. But that ruins the fun now doesn't it?
2002-01-28 12:12:50 AM  
Yeah, this was funny the first ten times, but now it's time to grow up, people.
2002-01-28 12:18:03 AM  
I suppose it'd be pointless to mention that it's not pronounced "butt", it's pronounced "Beaut". After all, what the fun would it be for a bunch of sexually stunted twelve year olds to try and find homosexual humor in it THEN?
2002-01-28 12:24:07 AM  
"Ruins the fun?" And what fun where you finding in it, exactly? It's not that it's in bad taste, it's that it's retarded. It's not even Beavis and Butthead level humor.

For the love of Allah, I live less than 20 miles from a place called "Virgin", which is home to the "Virgin Recycling Center." Also within driving distance is a town called Beaver. Their football team lost to the Taylorsville Trojans, thus leading to the headline "Trojans pound Beaver".

Now those things are at least MILDLY witty (as well as being factual), because they don't rely on a pre-teen willingness to force the word "Butte" to somehow be analogous (Woah, I just wrote "anal", maybe we could start a whole thread on THAT) with the word "Butt", which it sounds nothing like.

In short, this topic could only be found funny by the kind of intellect that finds the word "cockroach" to be unbearably hysterical.

I grew up in a town called "Picture Butte". It's in Alberta, Canada, which isn't far from Butte Montana. I believe I even played hockey there.

I'm going to Chico State which is right in the middle of Butt county. I was accepted here, Butt I wanted to go to SF State. I really like Chico, Butt the the summer's are Butt hot. Thank GOD the guys aren't Butt ugly!
2002-01-28 11:10:50 AM  
Scape: I'm in the northern part of town, off Mangrove near Cohasset. How 'bout you?
(/me waits for other FARKers to joke that I used "man" and "ass" in that sentence)

And for the non locals: Oroville (which is Indian for "meth lab") is the county seat. Cletus would fit in juuuuust fine.

Minky: You mean 110 in the summer is hot? :)

Somebody with the name "Kidman" should not so much loose touch with the inner child.

Butt humor is 'fundamental'.
(HAH! I kill me!)
