Reporter reacts to Augusta: “I’m dyin’ in this countryass town”

Not suitable for work, this video clip of a reporter switching from “reporter-mode” to OMGWTFYGTBFKM after having a bug fly into his mouth is hilarious. And what takes it from just another bit of humor on the web to personal blogworthy is that it took place here in Augusta, Georgia.

I disagree with his classification of Augusta, Georgia as “countryass”. Sure, Augusta is a far cry from the urban culture of Atlanta. Is it behind the times? Yeah. Boring? Certainly. Bible-belt? Uh-huh. But countryass? Not even close — at least not compared to most of south Georgia or all of “Alabubba”.

And hey, though 2nd place to Atlanta is a distant not-even-close, “Disgusta” is the second largest city in the state. Plus, Augusta is the home of the Augusta National / Masters! Augusta’s BBQ offerings aren’t even that great.

Regardless, I empathize with this guy. Summer in Augusta is uncomfortably hot and humid, the bugs can be awful, and I confess to wanting to get out of this town, myself.

If you liked it the first time, watch it again. Augusta!

UPDATE 2008-06-18: It’s come to my attention that the reporter in the video is in Augusta, Arkansas — not Augusta, Georgia. Makes me a little sad. His name is Isiah Carey. Found this out over here.
