Comedy Central’s The Daily Show did a segment by correspondent Jordan Klepper on May 7, 2014, about West Virginia’s lack of clean, drinkable water. Klepper said that the issue was one of “FIMBY” (or “FIIMBY")—Fuck, It’s in My Back Yard.
“FIMBY” is a variant on the popular term “NIMBY" (Not In My Back Yard).
Chicken Noodle Goop
To anybody who has a sense of humor,
Check out the Daily Show Tonight at 11, there will be a segment about WV and the water crisis.
