Fesssttivvle really? sounds like a word Snoop Doggy Dog invented. "Let's take a word we mean to say, spell it in a weird new way. Isn't that creative? I move that before the city council votes on this one, crack hits all around the room. Does everyone have their two can beer hat on? Anybody second the motion?"

Have a giant roadside billboard along either side of I-80 inside the city limits that'd say "If You Lived Here You'd Be In Hell By Now."
