Continuing on today’s theme (this being street justice) I present Patrick Pumpkin. I stumbled upon him while running errands this morning. In the annals of Garden Spot acts of discontentment employing edibles, this is a sullen twee whimper when, say, compared to this.* Those of you who feel so inclined to give Mr. Pumpkin a looksee be advised to keep your shutter-bugging/gawking on the downlow. The proprietress of this establishment vehemently dislikes such things. In fact, she may very well yell at you. “Deserve” has nothing to do with it.

*Which, for those of you who may be wondering, is the fruit (bad pun intended) of a disagreement between a citizen and the Department of Sanitation.  He complained to them about some matter or another. I do not recall what— it is really not important. What is important is that he made our Strongest angry. Angry enough— or so he alleged— that they dumped bags of rotten tomatoes in front of his property and then wrote him a ticket for them. I miss the good ol’ days sometimes…

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: L.A. Pizza & Convenience

I have seen a fair amount of signage over the years. The vast majority have employed threats— be they implicit or explicit— of physical violence. This one as you can see offers an alternative. Alas, I suspect the Greenpoint Library does not sport the exotic array of pornograpahy this establishment has. Believe you me, I am fairly certain it is the consumers of such stuff to whom this missive is directed. Nonetheless, well done!

For those of you who are wondering, “IBS” (at least as far as this flier is concerned) stands for “International Beauty Show”, not Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
