Burt Bacharach said this. I have nothing to add. I live in a small town. Or rather, I live in a small village about two miles from a small town. That town is Uckfield.
I like, sometimes, living near a small town. Small towns make me laugh.
I was driving into Uckfield yesterday and there was a local newspaper billboard proclaiming:
PEACOCKS GO ON RAMPAGE!
It's not always funny, though.
A few years ago, the headline was something like 'YOBS VANDALISE TOWN! FLOWERPOTS ARE OVERTURNED!'
Scary too, really scary. I don't know how we sleep peacefully in our beds.
More scary, the comment from our local councillor. "It's like living on the Gaza Strip."
