Ah, you misunderstood the reason for the inclusion of the first part of
the final paragraph:

Here I was joking since that Lars F. lives in a valley south and west of
me, he is probably a super-puritan, and then the lumping makes sense.
The final part of the final paragraph was me joking about ppl that
live south (like Lars do): like all southerners, <insert negative
stereotypes here>. This because it could be construed that Lars was
stating that city-people was/is <insert more negative stereotypes here>.
It also served to point to something that'd never work in fiction
(wouldn't be believable), only in real life, and hence useful for
t., who hates travlling for hours by bus
