New York Shitty Videos Du Jour: Season’s Beatings From Manhattan Avenue

Tis the season NYS

I cannot tell a lie: I hate the “holiday” season. It seems to bring out the very worst in otherwise normal, rational people. Call me a “Humbugger” all you want, gentle readers. Nowadays I confine yet another winter of my discontentment to snow globes. This is not simply therapeutic. It is better than, say, standing on the sidewalk yelling while brandishing a billy club. Which is exactly what came to pass on Manhattan Avenue late this afternoon.

I know what you’re thinking:

Exactly what lead up to this?

Well, if you listen carefully to the following video you will get some idea.

NOTE: I wrote “some idea”. As you can plainly see the fellow in question did not run away. And, well, further taunting an alleged assailant by screaming “Bitch” at him? This does not strike me as being a very good idea. Neither is wielding a billy club for that matter:

Don’t believe me? Read the law for yourselves here.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

On a related note— and rounding posts on this “Columbus Day”— I would like to give a big New York Shitty salute to Business Insider for publishing what has to be one of the finest takedowns of the New York Times yours truly has ever read. Well done!

Naturally I had to check in on my favorite feral cat Callie. So I headed east on Meserole Street. Therein I discovered the “Cat Hotel”!

Alas, neither she nor her “friend” Peter were to be found. However, her on-again/off-again companion from across the street was holding court.
