@KarenUhOh And still breast feeding.

If you can tell a child to get into a stroller, that child is too big for the stroller.

What is this, 2008?

Finnbar hasn't allowed strollers in years. But the happy hour deals and Leipäjuusto are amazing.

We're making fun of ethnic names now? Welp, indeed.

You know, little Sammy should be reminded that once upon a time Ochs-Sulzberger was considered a strange name in Brooklyn.

ur mom was once considered a strange name in brooklyn…..

@Bus Driver Stu Benedict You're quite the witty one.

Maybe I am missing some kind of Brooklyn in joke, but Finnbar is a very common name here in Ireland, I'm a bit bemused… Finnbar is a lovely name (meaning 'Fair headed one', if anyone is interested…)
We don't snigger when someone here calls their kid Chip or Bud or Trig… well, Ok maybe we do…

@Beagle I promise you that there is no way that this child's parents know the first thing about Ireland or even where to find it on a map. The name Finnbar, to them, is almost certainly the result of a drunken Boogle game.

@Beagle Finnbar is actually their pug.

@IBentMyWookie Boggle, not Boogle, you daft finnbar

wait is the joke that 'Finbar' is some kind of poncey middle-class name for a toddler and this is somehow new in brooklyn now in 2014 or is the joke that this dude has hashtagged #brooklyn rather than idk #parkslope or is the joke that this is some kind of "no darling that's daddy's yakult" type of easy metonomy for "oh no this place where middle class people live has middle class people in it to an extent i had not yet understood", i don't get it.
