SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A survey by the online magazine The Daily Beast ranks the city by the Bay as the most vain city in the country, more narcissistic than New York or Los Angeles.

The survey’s criteria compared how much people spend on personal trainers, spas and cosmetic products, and where the populations rank on the obesity scale.

Healthy San Francisco aside, the KCBS and Chronicle Insider believes banning toys in Happy Meals and similar legislation under the rule of two consecutive glamorous mayors, Willie Brown and then Gavin Newsom, only make the city seem that much more self-absorbed.

    It’s hard to be humble, when you’re perfect in everyway.

    It’s really the 2nd most selfish city, slightly worse than NY but less than 10% as self-centered as Washington, DC.
