On What's Your Excuse For Being The Worst?

One can only hope that this goes down the same path as disposable razors and there will be people walking down the street juggling four phones. This can only get more amusing.

On Don't Mention The Rats

That qualifies as a giant rat? New York has really gone soft.

On "A day doesn’t go by where you don’t hear about more bank layoffs and branch closings."

Nothing a little more cocaine cannot fix.

On "The SoHo Of Midtown"

Why don't they just be honest and call it Tourist Trap (or ToTrap if they want to go that route)?

@brent_cox If things go sour after this, I'm blaming all the low numbered commenters for not commenting for the longest time.

So the only way to bring on the end is to have more people? Start having babies people, the end cannot come soon enough.

On Cafe's Ingenuity Almost Makes You Forget Sanitary Violations

In the era of Rudy Giuliani, I worked in a restaurant that had baseball bats by the door leading to the basement. These bats were to be used on the rats by the busboys on their journeys downstairs to bring up various foodstuffs. Restaurant inspectors came and went, and never did the restaurant receive a violation. Campaign season came around, and Rudy comes into the restaurant with the accompanying media circus. The rats are dancing downstairs. The restaurant has a clean bill of health. The rat upstairs shook some hands, smiled for the cameras, and had a quick bite. The owner was all smiles. The media bought it. The show was over. Everybody was enjoying their meal. A restaurant grade is only as good as the inspectors that grade it. Enjoy your "A" rated meals. They might just be "A"stounding but you will never know.
