Poopie Po Polsku

This weekend, dear readers, I beheld my very first piece of dog doo signage directed at the local Polish-speaking population…

Martinez Playground

at Scholes Street and Manhattan Avenue?!?

I am not an expert at public outreach, but I have to wonder how effective a sign admonishing people in Polish is going to be in a neighborhood that is largely Hispanic. Of course the punchline here is during all my years of living in Greenpoint (which is rumored to have a rather sizable Polish population) I have never, ever, seen such a sign posted here.

No wonder there is dog shit all over the place.

  2. That’s hilarious!!! You’d hardly think a translation is even necessary what with the pretty self explanatory image.

    You know what always gets me- that the HSBC ATM in Greenpoint offers Spanish, but not Polish.

  4. it seems to take much longer to say that in Polish. love how the word biological manages to get tucked in there.

Tell me what you're thinking...
