From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: And Now Fish Oil?
(Or, A Greenpoint Gets A Healthy Spill*)
This latest installment of mayhem from the Garden Spot comes from a gentleman named Todd. He writes:
Apparently there was a giant fish oil spill on Franklin and Greenpoint last night resulting in car accidents, people slipping and tripping, and other various keystone cops/laurel and hardy type LOLZ. Do you know anything about this? …A friend witnessed it but did not take pictures. She did however talk to a cop at the scene, asking ‘why don’t you just close off the intersection?’ The response was ‘lack of manpower’. I guess you need the National Guard to set up for wooden horses to close off an intersection.
This is news to me. Anyone out there have the 411 about this? If so, please share via comments or send me an email at missheather (at) newyorkshitty (dot) com.
