Judgmental Mpls neighborhood map might offend you, will probably make you laugh [IMAGE]

Minneapolis, judged.

Live in Loring Park? According to the "Judgmental Maps" blog, you're really in the land of "gay renters."

:::: UPDATE :::: Judgmental Mpls map creator speaks out: "The whole thing is satirical"

The latest entry on the blog takes a snarky, possibly offensive look at the City of Lakes, complete with attempting-to-keep-it-real neighborhood names like "Target Corp zombies roaming the skyway" (downtown), "people who can't afford Southwest Minneapolis" (Lake Nokomis area), and "drunk college students" (Dinkytown).

In the comment section of the Judgmental Maps post, the "Compton of the North" crack is proving to be particularly controversial. But I personally take umbrage with the "wannabe hipster" thing. After all, my thick black-rim glasses actually have prescription lenses in them, dude!

::Update::

The map's designer no longer wants to be associated with the work since "it's being misinterpreted by about 75% of folks."
