New York Shitty Videos Du Jour: Season’s Beatings From Manhattan Avenue

Tis the season NYS

I cannot tell a lie: I hate the “holiday” season. It seems to bring out the very worst in otherwise normal, rational people. Call me a “Humbugger” all you want, gentle readers. Nowadays I confine yet another winter of my discontentment to snow globes. This is not simply therapeutic. It is better than, say, standing on the sidewalk yelling while brandishing a billy club. Which is exactly what came to pass on Manhattan Avenue late this afternoon.

I know what you’re thinking:

Exactly what lead up to this?

Well, if you listen carefully to the following video you will get some idea.

NOTE: I wrote “some idea”. As you can plainly see the fellow in question did not run away. And, well, further taunting an alleged assailant by screaming “Bitch” at him? This does not strike me as being a very good idea. Neither is wielding a billy club for that matter:

Don’t believe me? Read the law for yourselves here.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Greenpoint Photo Du Jour: Presenting The “Four People” Policy

Four People Policy

One has to admire the evocative word-smithing and brutal honesty employed in this missive. I can only imagine the series of events that came to pass so as to require such a policy. I am not sure I want to know. If I ever find my person in need of “work wear”, I am totally taking my business to this establishment. Well done, Zoe’s!
