You may have seen Urbane's San Francisco map, in which areas of the city are named by what they are known for instead of their actual name (for example, the Sunset district was translated into, "Well, the cab rejected me again, claiming I live too far from everything else.").

Urbane has recently released their latest map for the "Yay Area," renaming every city from Novato to Los Gatos with what they've observed in that particular area. We're definitely only going to refer to the East Bay Hills as "Hills of Income Separation" from now on.
