Big photos below.
Urban Dictionary doesn't just offer definitions of terms like "penalty shotgun" and "MERL" -- both featured in our post dedicated to UD phrases inspired by CU-Boulder. It's also a place where site visitors define plenty of other things, including Colorado cities -- sometimes positively, but often in alternately hilarious and insane fashion. To see what we mean, check out the following photo-illustrated examples -- one nice definition and one nasty one for five places: Boulder, Greeley, Vail, Grand Junction and Denver. Which is closest to the truth? Decide for yourself below.

Boulder: The Nice Definition

Boulder has recently been named the healthiest city in the United States of America. This is because the residents of Boulder, CO realize how lucky they are to be able-bodied humans and take advantage of their youth. Boulder is located at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, giving the students a breath-taking view of the famous flatirons.
The University of Colorado at Boulder is known for its prestigious academics and world-famous professors. The students at CU are also well-known for their activism. CU Boulder is the most green college campus in the United States, therefore making this world a better place to live in.

To outsiders (mostly pissed-off Republicans), Boulder appears to be a 'hippie infested' city. It is more important to look at the facts: While the greater population of Boulder regularly smokes marijuana, they are still the most fit and sane people in the US.

Boulder, CO could possibly be the best college campus on the west side of the Mississippi River.

Also, it is important to remember that the University of Colorado at Boulder is the most difficult public college to be accepted into in the state of Colorado. So, when someone disses this beautiful city, it is likely that they were rejected from the University and ended up at CSU or UNC.

Person 1: What's one thing that CU and CSU students have in common?

Person 2: What?

Person 1: They all got accepted to CSU.

Boulder: The Nasty Definition

A very... unique town in Colorado. Population consists of Left-wingers, weird hippies, Buddhists, old people and hobos. It is an unwritten law in Boulder that you must never eat anything processed, only things from the earth. Another rule is that you must be as bizarre looking as possible. Oh yeah, the University of Colorado's there too.

I went to Boulder and found a hobo who had locked himself in a dumpster.

The critique of Denver , is sort of off the wall,  John Ramsey was in Boulder, Columbine was in Jefferson County, Ludlow was near Pueblo., and I have never heard of church shootings in Denver.

Not sure where the author of this piece got his/her information. What crap !

They're all somewhat true, from different perspectives. Mix the good and bad together and you have the reality.

@DougHubka  I'd say the "nasty" Denver definition is among the more articulate postings on urbandictionary.com

@LindaLee Law   LLL:  I think Boulder is aptly defined by the nut job that hid in the porta-head so he could watch women take a crap.
