Brown Dirt Humor.

From smartacus.org, my favorite slogan found on a Bakersfield souvenir t-shirt: Bakersfield: A Riverbed Runs through it.

Jon Sullivan, my favorite description of someone's departure from the town: "I fled the area at a high rate of speed."

And from
fray.com, my favorite one-liner about being a youngster in Bakersfield: "And, in the summer, one of the fun things we kids did was challenge each other to stand as long as possible in bare feet on the asphalt."
