The Word On The Street: What Time Is It?

Bitch time 24/7/365: it’s how I roll…

As a general rule, I eschew “street penises”. This is because there are simply too damned many of them. This happy, upstanding fellow, who I have named “Scroto Baggins”, is a rare exception. Enjoy!

That feeling when you see hair the same color as your own, a whole head of it no less, dangling from a tree. Prodigal/feral hair in all its manifold varieties has long been and will continue be a source of amusement to yours truly. It’s how I roll.

Ever had the feeling you’re being watched?

Today Is Not Only Friday…

it is also the birthday of one of my favorite Greenpoint notables: Jozef! Here he is representing in front of the local “Crunch Fitness” (who has been kind enough to give him some swag).

Jozef will be doing his annual (and per last*) birthday celebration at the Polka Dot Cafe. I do not recall the exact date/time, but Sunday between noon and 4:00 pm is a pretty safe guess. I’ll update with exact details when I get them.

For those of you who are not aware of artistry/whimsy this fellow gives back to community (which I suspect are many nowadays), I offer you this: my personal favorite. It is one of many over the years, I assure you. This fellow is a treasure.

Happy Birthday Jozef!

*No suicide alert here. He’ll continue celebrating his name day. Like many of us, I suspect, birthdays get old after awhile.

And Now Something Different

As a general rule I refrain from lifting material verbatim from social media. However there are occasions when I make an exception. This is one of them. I can honestly say in my twenty years here I never made the connection— and given the robust aroma of the community today it is very apropos.

At a glance the Shit Tits would be where Cornholio’s brain would be. Perfect. There really isn’t anything about this that isn’t spot-on. I give Mr. Gamboa’s analysis two thumbs up. Let’s just hope the real estate industry doesn’t try to invent “CoHo”.
