Greenpoint Video Du Jour: Special National Hug Day Edition

Filed under: Crazy People, Greenpoint Magic 

Yesterday— to say the very least— was an interesting day. First it was finding a burned out car on India Street on the way to meet someone for lunch. Then when I was walking home on Franklin Street a SUV tore past me spewing forth the special perfume only to be found from smoldering high grade weed. I found the latter rather disturbing because (as many of my fellow Greenpointers can attest) the driving skills of my fellow Garden Spotters are marginal at best— even when sober.*

Anyhoo, these concerns quickly faded into the recesses of my consciousness when I reached Calyer Street. That’s when I was greeted with the sounds of shouting. As Jane Fonda so sagely observed in the movie Barbarella:

…good many dramatic situations begin with screaming…

This occasion was no exception. In fact one of the shouters was brandishing a 1 x 4 for added dramatic effect.

Maybe these gents are discussing the pluses and minuses of Michelle Obama’s inauguration gown? Everyone’s a critic I suppose. I for one thought it was very nice.

  2. Are they hugging vigorously? I hope so.

  4. I like that! I can almost hear them now:

    Man #1: I know that you voted for McCain, Joe. But today is dedicated to nation-wide reconciliation. Let’s have a group hug!

    Man #2: Aw, shucks George! You know I couldn’t stay angry at you for long!

    Man #1: Look I even got you this nice plank. It’ll fit in nicely with the collection in your library.

    Man #2: Gee, Thanks!

    Man #1: Are we still on for tonight’s group reading and discussion of “Ulysses”?

    Man #2: Sure, I’ll bring the VSOP.

    Man #1: See you after third shift!

Tell me what you're thinking...
