I live in Whitesburg and I really wish we had a Waffle House, lol. I love it here. I've traveled to over 40 states and I wouldn't live anywhere else, thank you very much.

Whitesburg, KY is about the closest you can get to the literal meaning of purgatory. This beautiful squalid little town finds a way to hand all of its residents enough bad for every good they carve out or cherry-wise it tends to find a way for all its residents to find silver lining enough to make up for the bad. The end result is rampant poverty, millionaires, and generally an entrapping feeling of "meh"

If you make the right friends in Whitesbug you will be having blow-out parties every weekend on a mountain literally owned by the host. These parties are exclusive and exclusively for the rich people. If you were not born lucky, or didn't make the right friends then you can look forward to such financial descisions as should i buy Top Raman and eat today, or shampoo.
