The basic idea is that Brian and Alex have decided to get together and create a series of stories about a single city: West Allis, Wisconsin, where strange things seem to happen. The city is a suburb of Milwaukee, though somehow cowboyish and NASCARish and redneckish (without any shame for any of its odd classifications). There are more bars per capita than any other non-college town, a surprising number of registered Republicans, people who tailgate in the library parking lot, and at least one person who walks around with a wrestling championship belt ALL THE TIME. Oddly, wealthy suburbanites are not afraid of West Allis's eccentricities, and it is sometimes seen as the place to go to go out with friends or have an affair. Other cities in Wisconsin that are reminiscent of West Allis include Menomonee Falls (AKA West Allis North), Butler, West Bend, Jackson, Sussex, Lannon, and probably West Milwaukee, which isn't even further west than Milwaukee itself. I'd also include towns like Janesville, Altoona, North Fond du Lac, or Allenton to name a few more. The thing is, none of these towns are really exactly West Allis, and neither is your town, unless you happen to live there, in which case, I hope you enjoy.
