Thanks to President Trump the word of the day is “shitholes.” We have some strong opinions on all that which we’ll probably share later. But we’ve actually been in this boat a million times before. We call places shitholes all the time and people who live in those shitholes often take offense to it. The difference of course is that Turtleboy doesn’t have access to a nuclear bomb and the President is not a news and entertainment blogger. Nevertheless, it’s still considered controversial to point out that shitholes are in fact shitholes, because the truth hurts people’s feelz. Luckily for you we don’t care about your feelz, so we’ve assembled a list of the 30 biggest shitholes in Massachusetts and Rhode Island that are worse than Haiti. We intended to put a more comprehensive list of the top 50 biggest shitholes in Massachusetts after we completed all of our bone rides, but Trump did this so we had to do a little preview blog today. Here they are….




30. Wales

You can have a whale of time in this shithole. Especially if you’re into run down, dilapidated buildings and grocery carts full of broken dreams.





29. Charlemont

A school bus graveyard mixed in with a trailer park.






28. Spencer

I thought the point of moving to the suburbs was to get away from shitholes?






27. Hawley

Most of you will never go to Hawley. And you will be better off for it.




26. Haverhill

Run down factories, “we accept EBT” signs, and adults wearing pajama pants during the day while ripping Newport 100’s is a good sign that you’re in a shithole.




25. Winchendon

Winchentucky is a pain in the ass to get to, and then when you get there you have to ask yourself, “why the hell did I come here?”





24. West Warwick

Rhode Island’s grundle.





23. Warren

More like Warren pieces.





22. Boston

Most people think of Fenway, the Back Bay, and downtown when they think of Boston. That’s a fraction of it. The places were people actually live are real shitholes though.





21. Pawtucket

It’s not the nicest place, but at least you can get your DrinX-On at Gee’s!!





20. Lowell

When your motto is “at least we’re not Lawrence,” you are living in a shithole.





19. Revere

Quite possibly the most traffic congested shithole in the Bay State.



Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 11.12.01 PM



18. Worcester

It might be a shithole, but it’s my shithole. This is what a “renaissance” looks like:







17. Fitchburg

No image better epitomizes what a shithole Fitchburg is, quite like the sad moose who wanted to kill himself after getting lost in Fitchburg.



11150203_10153160010418257_4037619478322538899_n (1)



16. Lynn

Who would’ve ever thought that a hipster coffee shop would fail so miserably in a shithole like Lynn?





15. Webster

When your biggest employer is Mario’s Showplace you know you’re in a shithole.






14. Fall River

No wonder the Fall River Guttermuppet became the trainwreck that she is today.






13. Colrain

I’m Kye Johnson and I’m Colrain 4 Life.








12. Pittsfield

People like to vacation in the Berkshires. Pretty much everywhere except for Pittsfield.





11. Southbridge

Who would’ve ever thought that opening up a DTA office in a previously nice town would turn it into such a shithole?






10. Ware

When convicted child rapists are released from prison and the default place to send them is your town, you know you live in a shithole.





9. Providence 

Don’t be fooled by downtown – Providence is a shithole on steroids.






8. New Bedford

This is the kind of shithole that breeds a foodstampapotamus.






7. Holyoke

When residents use the Connecticut River as a bath, you live in a shithole.





6. Springfield

According to social justice warriors the worst part about Springfield is the Dr. Seuss museum.





5. Woonsocket

Where shipwrecks go to die.






4. Brockton

If you’ve ever spent a Tuesday afternoon sitting on a broken down appliance, you live in a shithole.









3. Chelsea

On top of being a filthy shithole, Chelsea residents get to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of 747’s descending 200 feet above their heads every 30 seconds.





2. Central Falls

The GED capital of New England.


Screen Shot 2016-01-07 at 9.27.07 PM



1. Lawrence

I’d rather sit trough five coup de tats in Haiti than spend one weekend in Lawrence.



So there you have it President Trump. Although I don’t debate that Haiti is in fact a shithole, this great land of ours is not exactly lacking in the shithole department either.

    If Wales and Charlemont are on this list then surely Chicopee deserves to be as well. When you drive through it on the Mass Pike you can literally smell it for miles, and it smells like raw sewage and rotting corpses. Not to mention all the junkies who can be seen panhandling at every intersection along Memorial Drive at all hours of the day. It’s basically Springfield’s grimy, heroin-addled little brother.

    But yeah, fuck Lawrence. The US Army should wall it off and use it as an artillery testing range.

      Its true, having lived and traveled around this “great” state as an LTL freight hauler for 10 years, I have “enjoyed” all the charm MASSAFUCKINTUCKYCHUSETTS has to offer. To me, this fine shithole is a shitty, skinny road, in the middle of NOWHERE, IN THE DARK…let the cracker trash blow it up…or turn it into a big freeway between someplace else and someplace.

    I respect how this list has to represent the cousin-spooning sections and places where the family tree doesnt fork like Hawley, Colrain, Charlemont, etc.

    But drop these slackjaw hardos off in Taunton, Barnstable, Gloucester, Waltham, Quincy, Randolph, Somerville, Everett, Framingham, Milford, Weymouth, Holbrook, North Adams or shit even Newport has some areas you wouldnt expect near Middletown RI that are ratchet AF a few miles from the mansions. They wouldnt make it.

    Trump is exactly correct on Haiti, Africa and most other big sources of US immigration around the Carribean and Mexica, Central America and South America. Pure shit-holes with uneducated, diseased immigrants who take the law as suggestion as it is in their culture. You racists have to respect the DIVERSITY of these lawless invaders while surrendering your own culture and diversity because you a racist for even noticing. Tuberculosis is back along with other diseases gone from the United States for 50 years or longer. Thanks to uncontrolled mass migration into the US. We the people get zero benefit and we suffer for it. The politicians gain a new Democrat/Socialist underclass, divide the population on race, and business can undermine wages across the economy for those who still work.

    I travel to all these locations, Lawrence may be closest to 100% pure shit hole with no redeeming qualities. You flip the bird to somebody in lawrence, real chance they will shoot at you.

    Holyoke, Chicopee, Springfield metropolis is extremely bad with routine street violence anywhere. If somebody comes up the road on the wrong side move your car over they probably in trouble and will hit you or shoot you to get out of there.

    Brockton, Fall River, Lynn, Webster, Pittsfield exist only to house illegal aliens and SSI drug addicts.

    If we wanted to save America we would have to accept letting North Korea Nuke all of Massachusetts, Ri, Ct, NJ, anything within 150 miles of NYC, Southern NH, parts of Maine, all of California, West Oregon and Washington states, DC, Maryland, Delaware, Eastern Penn, all the major cities in Texas and Missouri and South Florida.

      September 22, 2020 at 3:42 am

      I disagree. Once you get past Pawtucket, Central Falls, Woonsocket and South Providence, Rhode Island is a beautiful state. Southern NH isn’t great compared to Central and Northern NH but it’s not terrible either. Also remember that New Hampshire is one of the best states in the country. Same with Maine and Washington and 90% of those states are lovely. Texas has some the best major cities in the country. Laredo, Brownsville and a few other places are bad but they have so many great cities, towns, natural scenery and so much else to make up for it. Great Texas cities for major cities alone include: Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, El Paso and Houston (for the most part, it’s debatable). There are tons of great smaller cities and towns like I said too like Plano and Round Rock for example. Your comment about New York City is just ridiculous because there are so many nice places within that 130 mile radius. Eastern Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia is fine. We couldn’t accept letting them nuke Washington, D.C. because it includes the White House, National Monument, Lincoln Memorial and so much else. It’s certainly not perfect but America wouldn’t be the same without it. Also, letting North Korea kill millions of Americans wouldn’t be worth it.

    I don’t think TB is racist but some of your followers sure are… It doesn’t matter where you come from. What matters is how you were raised and being educated. Some of these comments disgust me. Don’t blame all black people or Spanish people calling us niggas and spics. There are uneducated people of races including some of you racist white people. I highly doubt you would ever use your real identity to say something that racist on social media. Educate yourselves and spread love not hate. To fight any kind of oppression we must come together as equals, not segregate ourselves and become divided

      Very good points made. However,black and hispanics perpetuate the stigma of racism by referring to each other as “niggas” . It’s kind of funny, but people never remember the large majority of blacks and hispanics that are hard working or law abiding. Instead, every time one of these ghetto rats makes the news for something bad it reinforces the stereotype that people have of blacks and hispanics. White people are compelled to refer to the “N Word”, while blacks and hispanics freely refer to themselves as niggas.

      And why not learn to conjugate a verbs properly? When blacks engage in ghetto speak and say he be, she be, they be, it’s both laziness and resistance to assimilate.

      I have known both ghetto niggers as well accomplished blacks. I’m convinced that people always remember the bad,not the good. It’s unfortunate that every black gets painted by the same stereotypical brush because of the ignorance of a few.

      Many years back when I had audited the Roxbury welfare office a senior auditor asked me to guess what percentages of each race made up the welfare rolls. I had guessed black, then Hispanic, then Asian, and finally, white. The answer was astounding – Whites made up the majority, then Asian, then Hispanic, and then black. It’s so easy to see how you can insidiously classify races.

        March 1, 2020 at 10:54 am

        Total number is irrelevant because whites made up 70 percent of the population .
        So if there are 12 welfare recipients and 4 are white 3 are black 3 are hispanic and 2 are asian. You would say the majority are white but that would be wrong. Since blacks are 12 percent of the population. If you are honest you can see that blacks snd browns are a higher percentage. This will worsen as dems flood the border

    They whine that every fuckin’ word they see isn’t in Spanish, they run over people with uninsured cars and drive away, they beat women all the time and think it’s OK, they have loads of kids they can’t afford and the kids usually have a dad who’s in jail, they’re all thieves, and you’ll never see a spic virgin over the age of 14. Most of all, almost every shithole mentioned above is full of them. They should be dropped out of a helicopter over their real countries. Fuck them.

      And then when that downward trends starts happening…”hey, want to buy a house (invest your life savings into property) here?!? I promise it won’t lose money 5-10 years from now!”

      And nobody of value moves in. The people who move in want free shit. Or they’re rich kids from the ‘burbs who are handed free shit (the house/apartment their parents bought [see: Boston real estate]).

    At the very worst, I believe they took what he said severely out of context, threw in some colorful language, and a dash of racial turmoil just to rile up the SJWs. I can assure you that it has nothing whatsoever to do with race

      Regardless, they haven’t answered his question. They’re upset that he called shithole countries shithole countries, and don’t want to acknowledge that they want these people here.

      They should just say:

      “Because these people will support us with all the free shit we give them. And these people will have children. Many millions of children, believe me. These children will grow up depending on us, and our voter base will remain established.”
