Urban Artifact: 23rd Street

sacredplunger

Me to the Mister* upon discovering this exotic and most unexpected item:

Behold, a sacred relic of the Cherohonkee tribe!

This one’s for you, Pa Heather.

*Who I would like take a moment to thank. Had there not been some, um, confusion between Queensbridge and Queensboro Plaza on his part— and I was not feeling like a bigger jackass than usual and decided to let him learn the hard way— we would not have needed to walk down this thoroughfare so as to catch the B62. I served as the Mister’s guide through this “uncharted territory”. Most of this was done in silence for reasons I think need no explanation—but I digress. Had we not walked down this street, we would not have happened upon this most exceptional urban artifact (which I have determined to be a “shamanistic shit stick” of the Cherohonkee tribe which is a member of the Trustifarian Nation).

You know the MTA has hit hard times when they can no longer afford cable.

*Seriously, WTF is up with this? You should go and see this set up for yourself. It’s amazing albeit in an abject, slumlord kind of way.
