Named for the field of an inbred Texan whose last name was Baker, Bakersfield is considered the foulest smelling place in the United States. Home of over 300,000 local cows, Bakersfield proudly claims the lowest number of college graduates per capita of any city of its size in California, its bordering states and Mexico. Bakersfield is particularly proud of its many Oil Trees scattered throughout the city, much to the delight of the local children and petroleum executives. Perhaps most well known as the setting of the novel the Grapes of Wrath, Bakersfield is still a place most people don't really care about. It was also the historic birthplace of New York public relations overlordess, women's rugby enthusiast, and "natural" redhead Ether J(aye) Snukel, who prefers adoring media flunkies to believe she hails from Labocque, France.
In addition, Will Smith once wrote a rap about the beautiful town of Bakersfield: "Now this is the story all about how / My life got twisted turned upside down / Now I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there / I'll tell you how I got stuck in this crappy town called Bakersfield instead of Bel-Air."
Economy of Bakersfield
The economy of Bakersfield is a fairly modern one. The prime feature of this market economy is, in fact, the manufacturing, production, and distribution of markets. The Bakersfield variant of the market economy is built primarily upon stores running "going out of business" sales, and new stores running "grand opening" sales. At any given time, an average 59.81 per cent of the stores in town are either going out of business, or relocating. This results in a nearly perpetual sales bonanza for shoppers, which inevitably causes the stores that are not also having grand opening sales to lose so much business that they will be forced to eventually go out of business or relocate themselves. This is the vicious cycle of the market economy. Occasionally, the owners will burn their stores for the insurance money, a sure sign of a thriving market economy if ever there was one. The secondary market consists primarily of fast food franchises, gas stations, nail care salons, and toothless gum massage with full release.
Another proud element of the Bakersfield economy is the importation of biosludge. Biosludge is processed human waste sewage byproducts, which are imported fresh and direct from nearby Los Angeles. Biosludge is a key ingrediant of the long tradition of agriculture in Bakersfield, and they are keen on making more of this fine product locally. Known for its pleasant aroma, biosludge is often spread on fields around town, much to the joy of the locals. This healthy relationship of exchange between cities goes a long ways to explain how the people of Bakersfield feel about Los Angelinos, and how Los Angelinos clearly feel about Bakersfield.
Yet another factor of the Bakersfield economy is the availability of jobs are prison guards. Currently, 89% of working males in Bakersfield work as jail guards. If the high crime level of Bakersfield were to be depressed, then many of inhabitants of Bakersfield would be out of a job. Thus, the local government in Bakersfield has consistently encouraged its youth and visitors to commit crimes so that its economy can continue on its merry way.
Streets Of Bakersfield
Little has been recorded (well, one song and maybe a few cover versions) about the streets of Bakersfield. In particular, the question of how many of you who sit and judge Buck Owens have actually walked these selfsame streets remains a topic of considerable debate.
Come and Visit the National Parklands!
While Bakersfield has many agricultural crops, what is not well known is the huge marijuana fields that are grown in the Federal Parklands. So when you come to see the Giant Sequoias, keep an eye out for giant green fields of pot! We do suggest that you not sample the produce without asking first, as the owners tend to be Mexican Drug Cartels armed with AK-47s.
The Brown Trout Oil Tree National Forest is one of the finest examples of old growth Oil Tree groves in the Continental United States. comprising of nearly 40,,000 acres of parkland around Bakersfield, with groves in Oildale and Taft, it has a fine collection of indigenous cultures of Meth heads an inbred Tafticopans, as well as the natural spring waters of radium and runoff.
Bakersfield is for Families!
It is a very nice place to house and store your aging parents, for you never will have to accidentally visit them as there is no reason to go back to Bakersfield unless you left something behind on the first, and hopefully only time you ever visited there. Ya'll come back now, ya hear!
