A Pee Grows In Brooklyn

"It smells up the block. It's been noticeably worse since the arena opened. It was just totally disgusting. In New York City you don't accept that kind of uncivilized behavior."
—A Brooklyn resident who seems, let's say, a little naive on what kind of uncivilized behavior New York City will accept, is one of the many people registering his displeasure over the fact that "patrons at the newly opened Barclays Center are using local sidewalks as urinals, even peeing on a community garden across from the new arena."

Definitely the finest "Grows in Brooklyn" pun, so far.

@Mr. B Would you say it just rolls off the tongue?

/Sorry.

@hershmire On the other hand, it does leave a rather salty taste in the mouth.

OK that makes up for about 100 "Is this the ____est _____? Sure, why the hell not"s.

Taking the MTA means never needing to forget what stale urine smells like. Or fresh!

Barbra Streisand does that everywhere she goes.

What is it with boys/men/penis-havers who live in Brooklyn and think it's acceptable to just pee everywhere, all the time? In DC they arrest you for that nonsense.

@cherrispryte Not just Brooklyn. In the early 90's, I lived in a basement apartment a block from Nevada Smith's in the East Village. And I had to leave the windows closed at night owing to drunken soccer fans peeing or vomiting into the airshaft.

@cherrispryte They arrest you for that in Brooklyn too.

I was walking home one night and saw a guy peeing on a building down my street. I stopped just long enough to try to think of something to say to him. Before I could think of anything, I was asked if I like to stare at dicks. Not very nicely either, I might add.

Maybe they're just trying to make the building rust faster.
