Dung Of The Day: Glass Half Full Edition
Filed under: Bushwick, Dog Shit, Dog Shit Signage, Dung of the Day, Williamsburg
After learning about the latest incarnation of this sign last week I simply had to see it for myself. What’s more I wanted to gauge its effectiveness. I have some good news and some bad news to relay:
1. While on the one hand it would appear the local citizenry are obeying the letter of the sign,
2. on the other they do not seem to be graspingÂ its spirit.
Glass half empty or glass half full? I’ll let you make the call.
While I’m on the subject of dog shit and day-glo paint, I was recently forwarded a most amusing item from my friend over at And I am Not Lying. Here’s a teaser to pique your interest:
There were two good things about my apartment in Virginia:
The rent was only $175 a month, and Brad the landlord never came over. Ever. Or so we thought. This seemed ideal at the time, as I was using the living room as a painting space in addition to training live chickens to play keyboards in the living room. The less company, the better.
But like so much else in the world, the good and bad parts of that situation were horribly entangled.
Weâ€™d moved into the place in a hurry in the dead of an unusually cold winter â€“ which served to keep the smell down..
Yup, and it only gets better.
