auburn sux, the worst police on the entire planet are here. U'll get a speed ticket and they'll charge you with twenty charges. Don't slow down on a YIELD sign, they'll give you a ticket. Don't yield to a pedestrian, you'll prolly go to jail. It's a college town full of rich kids, right? The worst judges, the worst city police, the worst crime prevention officers, and the worst county jails. Crime prevention officers also sell drugs.
There is like three bars, nowhere to go, nothing to do, education sux, weather is usually either very depressing or very hot. Auburn is the closest thing to a toilet. If alabama is the toilet of the US, then auburn is the toilet seat that gets splattered with the most ominous excrecetion imaginable.
If you want to go to college, don t come to auburn. If you want to come to an american football game, come to auburn. I'm a local, and let me tell you, if you're not here visiting, you'll start feeling sorry for every second you pass among squirrels, trees and some of the most annoyingly speaking people.
