There's an article that is circulating around the internet again from RoadSnacks about the "Trashiest Cities" in America.

This article was actually written back in 2017, a long time ago, but it has ruffled some people's feathers again.  Each state got its moment in the spotlight, including North Dakota.

I tried to figure out by reading the article how RoadSnacks compiled their data.  Although they mentioned some Facebook comments, it appears this is mostly opinionated commentary.

As somebody who knows North Dakota very well, I would have to say if I compiled a list of the trashiest cities in North Dakota it would probably look a lot different.

The word "trashy" is very subjective and no doubt refers to a typical stereotype.  So, before you get too bent out of shape on this list, again, it appears it's somebody who probably doesn't even live in North Dakota, and is just poking some fun at us.

Since, I've never been afraid to laugh at myself, my roots, and where I come from, I figured I would share the results of this article with you.

No small North Dakota towns made the list.  In my opinion, the stereotypical "trashy towns/cities" in our state would be mostly small towns. 

Those are the yards where you are most likely to see 4 broken-down riding lawnmowers lined up in the front yard, a stack of old tires, 11 cats running around the yard, garbage everywhere (except in the receptacle) 7 trucks in the driveway (where maybe only 1 works), and some average Joe sucking on a camel giving you the stink eye as you drive by.

Again, this is my opinion, I know we have plenty of these areas in big cities in North Dakota too, but they just seem more prevalent in small towns to me.

So, without further ado, according to RoadSnacks, these are the 10 Trashiest Cities in North Dakota (Don't shoot the messenger).
