I've been stuck on a phrase ever since last summer. I was reading craigslist and someone new to the Boston area asked if anyone had advice on neighborhoods. Somebody took the time to post:
Mattapan is beat.
I thought it was so funny because it seemed like the person was thinly cloaking some personal issue with feigned advice for the newcomer. I think the phrase "Mattapan is beat." has the potential to become another "Rocks Natick."
