May 31st 2007 – Overheard Best Of’s

Woman #1: So, what you think about Duane?
Woman #2: Girl, he all up in my Kool-Aid and he don’t even know the flavah!
–Deli, Brooklyn 

Dude: So, what did you do?
Hung-over girl: I was really embarrassed at first and I tried to hide it. Then I was like, ‘Fuck it, yeah, I peed in your bed.’
–Restaurant, Chelsea 

Stoner chick: What if we actually want to bake something? We’ll have smoked all our vanilla extract!–Elderidge & Rivington 

Hobo putting hand on Justin Timberlake look-alike’s shoulder: Oh, shit! It’s Justin Timberlake, everybody!
Look-alike: Uh, what?
Tourist teenybopper: Can I have your autograph, please?
Look-alike: I’m not Justin Timberlake.
Tourist teenybopper: But you are.
Hobo, to look-alike: Dude, you work with me here, okay? We’ll do business. [To train] Ten bucks for Justin Timberlake’s autograph, everyone! For 20 bucks he’ll dance for you.
Tourist teenybopper: I have five dollars…
Hobo: We’re in business!
Look-alike: I’m going to kill you.
Hobo, to look-alike: Damn, this is the best plan I’ve ever come up with! Except for the time I tried to sell Lindsay Lohan’s piss for 20 bucks. Well, it was actually my own piss. I think God put me on this Earth to fuck with people.

Other than noting that this signage was found in the park under the Manhattan Bridge in Dumbo near Adams Street, we have nothing else to add.

Man clad in underwear pins leopard

A man clad only in underwear and a T-shirt wrestled a wild leopard to the floor and pinned it for 20 minutes after the cat leapt through a window of his home and hopped into bed with his sleeping family. Thank you Yahoo! for Man clad in underwear pins leopard

“hmmm, Interesting…” Another New Category

because what I want to post next for my 2 readers which I find interesting doesn’t fit into any of my other categories… 

New Category Alert!: “Best of Overheard”innewyork.com

That’s right, since I send my personal favorites almost every day to the two girls who might be reading this blog at this point. Hey Sharon! Hey Emily! Figured, hey, let’s boost my visitors and have you read my blog instead of my emails. Although, it is probably harder to read the website versus an email at your job since reading emails looks like work. Oh well Suckas! Thank you overheardinnewyork.com for great laughs at the crazy hobos, dirty stupid blondes, more stupid girls, etc.

First installment of “Does Anybody Care”

Thank you Yahoo! News on my MyYahoo! page…

Title: Hasselbeck communicating with O’Donnell, First Blah Blah Blah words: Elisabeth Hasselbeck is trying to patch things up with Rosie O’Donnell, her former co-host on ABC’s “The View,” after last week’s on-air spat. Umm, if you care to read about Bitchy and Scrathy (Thank you Best Week Ever) for that quip… here.

Also,

Title: Lohan checks into rehab after car crash, blah blah blah… Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab. Again. The move followed a weekend during which the wild-child actress, who is a month shy of her 21st birthday, crashed her Mercedes, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence and was photographed slumped in the passenger seat of a friend’s car. Stupid bitches… Supposed to be role models… Oh, now I get why I was afraid of the 14 year olds in Queens!

New Category! WOoo! “Does Anybody Care???”

No Seriously… The New Category is…”Does Anybody Care???”

Did you know I could speak several languages?

Well, for the most part, I actually can’t, but if you’d like to pretend that I’m really cool and can write simultaneously in several languages, let’s thank my new category “I Love Google- Sort Of” (because while they’re genius, I don’t use half of their programs because, well, I’m Lazy). Anyways, watch me write in… Arabic, Chinese, French, and Spanish… There’s also Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and German. But I mean, 5 languages is enough for now… I’m not a genius who can learn everything in 1 day.

Street View Maps in Google

Just in case anyone cared, in several major cities (including NYC), there are now Street View Maps available in which you can see what the street looks like from a car. Maps.google.com, just move the little guy around for the views.
