Pinole and Hercules, As Defined by Urban Dictionary

Some of these definitions are amusing and truthful, while others are somewhat derogatory and offensive.

Urban Dictionary describes itself as "the dictionary you wrote." We looked up the word Pinole and Hercules on the popular website and found just one relevant entry for each town. Some entries on the site are amusing and truthful, while others are derogatory and offensive [editor's note: Almost every page on Urban Dictionary includes some kind of offensive language, and these two are no exception]. 

The top definition is the one that received the most votes. We've shared them below. Feel free to define Pinole and Hercules yourself in the comments below this story: 

Pinole A city in the bay area, specifically the east bay. Pinole is neighbors with San Pablo, Richmond, El Sobrante, and Hercules. It is split into two areas, Old Town and Pinole Valley. Pinole valley is home to The Pinole Valley Spartans who have a kick ass football team. Pinole valley recently got a new shopping center which has a wall greens jamba juice peets coffee and trader joes.

Hercules The nicest town in west contra costa. However, lately has become over run with ghetto children attending the local high school. Has a very, very large population of phillipinos. Also known as Herc town. There's nothing really to do in Hercules, unless you enjoy Lucky's and one Mcdonalds.

"It belongs somewhere else." Like in the trash can! What a pile of garbage - Patch must really be stretching/scraping the bottom of the barrel to include this kind of tripe.

Why would this be printed I now am ashamed to live in Pinole if this is how it is described and printed. I try to keep up with everything being here in Afghanistan and do not get Internet Gerry often and open up my home town where I've lived for 43 yrs and read this you should be ashamed

RJ, You're the same person who made derogatory comments about Richmond teachers when I shared I had been one of them. You do not elicit words of kindness, buddy. But I will curtail my message to Justin and Patch staff that they please consider getting some sort of sensitivity training.
