Hair of the Dog

Are you sick of reading stories about the fiscal cliff? Do you wish journalists would focus on news that actually matters? Are you drunk right now? Well, friends, Business Insider feels your pain — your intense, throbbing head pain — and lists the 25 most hungover cities in America.

Topping the list for some reason is Omaha, the hometown of…uh…Willa Cather? Steaks? The music of Conor Oberst? And Milwaukee comes in at No. 2, because of course it does.

I can’t help but be proud of the fact that three of the cities I’ve lived in made the list — Portland at No. 24 (the city actually has a vegan strip club. I’m serious), Austin at No. 19 (the hometown of Despair, Inc., and we’d like to think we had something to do with this), and San Antonio at No. 15 (my hometown, where I think we actually once elected a margarita as mayor).

There are a few surprises — Akron and Toledo are both more hungover than Las Vegas, which seems insane. Or maybe not. I haven’t really thought this all the way through. I’m kind of drunk.
