Cities like to make up their own municipal mottoes, like tony Scottsdale, which calls itself:  "The West's Most Western Town."

Sure.

We decided to take 10 Phoenix suburbs and give them more realistic monikers. Here we go: 

10. Apache Junction: "Arizona's largest trailer park."

(Caution: Language not safe for work.)

9. Mesa: "We just say we're from Phoenix."

8. Paradise Valley: "Rich people live here."

7. Glendale: "We don't have our act together." 

6. Peoria: "Hey, at least it ain't Glendale."

5. Scottsdale: "Park your BMW between the other two."
