Urban Artifact du Jour: If You See Something, Say Something

November 3, 2008 ·
Filed under: Greenpoint Magic, Queens, Urban Artifact 

Every year I do the same thing: forget to buy my husband an anniversary present. Thankfully providence intervened when we hopped on the B24 to go to dinner.

The chap to the right dropped something out of his pocket. Being a highly inquisitive person I craned my head over to get a closer look. I chuckled.

It was at that moment the tension in the back of the bus became palpable enough to cut with a kitchen knife; he was looking at it, I was looking at it, his friend (to the left) stared at it. Even Mr. Heather was transfixed. Someone had to do something to stop this stand-off. So, being the cold-hearted bitch I am, I stepped over, snatched it up, laughed at it, showed it to Mister Heather and jammed it into my pocket. Problem solved!

Perhaps this is some money-making ploy by the MTA to avoid raising fares?

The fake boobs on this gal are quite remarkable. I suspect John Goodman could use them for flotation devices. I wonder if she comes with an “EasyPay Fare Option“?*

*And uses these condoms, for that matter.

What can you say about this photograph other than it was taken by garsav and is (aptly) entitled “Greenpoint: The Morning After Halloween”? Nice find, garsav!

ELECTION DAY: Pin The Tail On the Palin

Filed under: Greenpoint Magic 

That’s pretty much what I’ll be doing on November 4th after I cast my vote. Hoping, drinking— and probably praying— the she-wolf of Wasilla and her surly old fart of a running mate are not deemed Oval office-worthy by the “battle ground” states. Thankfully t.b.d. will be hosting an “Election Night Extravaganza” that is totally up my alley…

replete with Baracktails, no less!
