Posted By on Mon, Feb 25, 2008 at 4:00 AM

In yet another attention-seeking, city-ranking survey, Forbes Magazine has cleverly come up with a list of "America's Most Sinful Cities." It worked, because we're writing about it, even though it's sketchy logic, at best.

The seven deadly sins are Avarice, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Sloth, Pride, and Wrath. According to Forbes, Memphis is Number One in Gluttony, Sloth, and Envy.

We totally win the title of America's Most Sinful City! So finish off that double-Whopper, get your fat ass off the couch, and go steal something!
