I'm from Hollywood...Florida??
So probably 0.0000001% of you saw this today (well yesterday by the time this post goes up in Wordpress land), but thousands of cranky NYC commuters did. On page 6 of AM New York (too bad it wasn't the "other page six") I was quoted in the "Sound Off" area of the paper.
My quote was my response to the feeding the pigeon ban fiasco as reported here on Monday. I was engaged in a heated debate on the AM New York site about the ban and seemed to be the only one in favor of it.
In the message board I was called "an animal hater" and basically told to go to hell by some pigeon fucking assholes.
But nonetheless, in plain print was my opinion on the matter:
If you want to see the paper in its entirety you can view it here: http://www.amny.com/media/acrobat/2007-11/23136028.pdf
Now, I'm definitely honored that they would select my quote to appear in the newspaper. I haven't been quoted in a newspaper since my college days, and that's when I was quoted as saying Marv Albert was my role model just a few days before he was found biting prostitutes in the back. So this ink was decidely much more positive.
Actually my full quote on the site was: "I wholeheartedly agree with the ban. If you grew up in any part of the city you know that by and large pigeons are for the most part pests. Their shit literally rots away our bridges and buildings. They don't contribute anything to the city. They're not pretty and "bird watchable" by any means. Anyone feeding a pigeon should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Perhaps their punishment should be having a gang of pigeons shitting in their house for a week and we'll see how they like it."
So AM New York did some censorship on my behalf. But whatever. These days you can't even print the word shit without the Federal Cocksucking Commission coming down on you. But to see what the discussion forum was where they grabbed my quote, you can view it here: http://www.topix.net/forum/source/am-new-york/TPG285OEGMQ7RGO4F.
It's definitely worth a laugh seeing how stupid these pigeon fuckers are. Especially this douchebag Adam quoted besides me in the paper. Does his quote even make sense? Seriously. "Does anyone even know the price of gas? Anyone know what the implications are?". What the fuck does that have to do with eliminating pigeon shit asshole? Way to make a complete asshole out of yourself. If this was a debate I would have wiped the floor with him.
Anyway, what pissed me off was the quote said I lived in Hollywood, Florida. I mean I'm not knocking Hollywood, FL. I'm sure it's a lovely community of dinosaurs and retired Jews from up north.
I mean, it's on the ocean. It has it's own government. And it's welcome sign is a lot nicer than that shitty sign that greets you out in the "other Hollywood":
You sit there and tell me that sign is not nicer than this piece of shit:
I rest my case.
But still, it was a little bizarre to see someone quoted on a NYC pigeon shitting problem from Hollywood, FL. I just about lost all my street cred with that one.
Thanks alot AM New York.
