1. You've been duly warned

"Whoever after due and proper warning shall be heard to utter the abominable word "Frisco," which has no linguistic or other warrant, shall be deemed guilty of a High Misdemeanor, and shall pay into the Imperial Treasury as penalty the sum of twenty-five dollars. - NORTON I, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico. (1872)

4. Urban dictionary definitions:

1) Californiese slang for San Francisco, the place where no one can afford to both work and live. It's one of those few Californiese slangs that people from other places learn to say, thinking it will make them sound like they've actually been to California, and the one that San Franciscans refuse to say, because they resent being Californiese. As foggy as Frisco is, they still haven't the foggiest idea what to be; they're simply sure that Californiese isn't it.

"Frisco" originated during the California Gold Rush, when people were too busy trying to make their fortunes to pronounce all the syllables that the Spanish missionaries had thought place names needed. The Spanish originally named it San Francisco de Asís, but that was just impractical.
Only people who can afford not to work can afford to live in Frisco. Anyone who works there lives some place like San Jose or Santa Rosa. In turn, those displace so many people in San Jose and Santa Rosa that anyone working in those cities can't afford to live there, and live some place like Ukiah or Modesto instead, making sure that California's prime agriculture land gets paved over with tracts of homes that sit empty all day long until the owners come back at night, after one hella miserable one or two hour commute, and pretend to live there.


2) The proper term to use for "San Francisco" when you want to annoy uptight "Friscans".
Me: I'm going to a club in Frisco tonight.
Uptight Friscan: Frisco? Nobody from here calls it that! Please use San Francisco
Me: Yah, I love living in Frisco.
Uptight Friscan: Please don't disrespect the city by using that term.
Me: Wow, Frisco sure has great night life - and a lot of anal retentive idiots


And another I grew up with:
