About that judgmental map of Detroit

Some of you may have seen this floating around online over the weekend. It's a bit of satire that pretty much skewers everybody in the region, labeling every area in the metro region in the most irreverent way possible. We were especially amused at the way the region's racial breakdown is skewered, without seeming to take sides on the matter, with quips ranging from "blond chicks who enjoy fruity alcohol" to "run for your life, honky!"

What's your take on this? What made you laugh the most? Where does this map go too far?
