The Winner is Manukau City, New Zealand.

Congratulations, Manukau!

According to Wikipedia, Manukau is "ethnically diverse, and is home to many cultures, especially Māori and members of Polynesian ethnicities," but the diversity inexplicably excludes any New Yorkers. I don't get it because New Yorkers seem to be everywhere here in the United States. How does New Zealand keep them out? Share your secret, please!

Wikipedia also says that Utsunomiya, Tochigi, Japan is Manukau City's "Sister" city. But don't think you get to share this award, Utsunomiya, Tochigi. You have to win your own. Now if you were "BFF" cities, it would be different because I share everything with my BFF, Hector Elizondo.

(Ha! Maybe you noticed that Hector is a New Yorker. So clearly, I'm just joking with New York. We love New Yorkers because they complain so little and drive so well.)

And all you other places in the world, Manukau has a link to their libraries right at the top of their web page, so take a lesson because all you places that don't value your libraries enough to put them right up front are really pissing me off.
