I'm Not Trying to Bite Off of Anyone....
I know there's a site showing blurbs that people overhear in NY, but I heard this this morning and had to post. It made me think of Rat Chicken. Does anyone remember Rat Chicken? "No! Why don't YOU go to hell!"
I went out this morning...well, OK it was after 12, but I had only woken up at 11, so it was still morning to me...and as I waited to cross the street, I saw some guy rolling his food cart along the street and then turning onto a side street. He had a little trouble manuvering around the corner and held up the cars that were behind him trying to turn as well. Some guy in a van right behind him said, "Hey! Fvcking move, a$$hole!" The cart guy stopped dead in his tracks, turned around and said, "No. YOU are the one getting fvcked in the a$$hole!" He had an accent just like Rat Chicken too. I (along with about 10 people on the corner with me) burst out laughing. One kid even said to the van guy, "HA! A$$ fvcker!"
I tell you, it's moments like this that reinforce my love of NYC.
UPDATE: I found the original Rat Chicken clip. Some freak I used to work with always walked around going, "Raaaaat Chicken...why do you wear that maaaask?" It's totally freaky, but cracks me up....Enjoy!
