Apparently, while I wasn't looking, the Five Boroughs of New York City started a little bitch-slap fest...graphically, that is. As near as I can tell, it all started with this poster.
Obviously, Manhattan (and one of its proud denizens) wasn't about to take that lying down and a response appeared, forthwith!
I'm not sure whether or not I've got things in their proper order, but somebody else decided to put on their Big-Boy Pants, don their Hall Monitor Badge and to try to tell their betters to behave!
Staten Island appears to have been afraid of getting beat up for its lunch money and prudently, decided to distance itself from Queens and The Bronx.
The Bronx, too thought it would play peacemaker.
And Queens, predictably, would just like to get some sleep.
Some Buttinsky tried to change the subject!
In the interest of fraternal congeniality, I thought I'd take the opportunity to express my appreciation for the Five Boroughs, each of them with their own unique assets worth extolling. Let's begin with my own home!
Those other Boroughs have their fine points too!
O.K. Maybe those weren't quite as cordial as they could have been. But here's something I just know we can all agree on. How 'bout if we put up these signs at all the bridge and tunnel entrances?
P.S. I'm sure many of you who aren't lucky enough to live here are feeling left out, so I made a lovely poster so that you, too, can express your deep abiding love for NYC! You're welcome!
(h/t to Gothamist for cluing me in to this.)
