Caption This Park Slope Photo!

In all the years I've passed by the psychic on 7th Avenue between Carroll and Garfield, I never took a close look at their sign. Thanks to an eagle-eyed FIPS reader, we now know that, a. they can't spell, and b. they have a very unique psychic specialty! If you think you were Attila the Hun in a past life, they can probably help you here. Rather than a caption, hit us up with your FIPSiest suggested taglines in the comments.

Want to Write For FIPS?

FIPS is looking for some new writers to join our whack pack. As our Dear Leader Erica so eloquently states:

If you feel like joining our crazy FIPS whack pack crew, and your writing doesn't suck ass, we'd probably love to have you. Here's the deal: I'd love to hear all about how you're a hardcore FIPS reader, have the perfect voice, were born to make fun of Park Slope, blah, blah, blah. But mostly I just want to see if you can hack it. So if you REALLY want to write for us, send us a post. Any post, I don't really give a crap. If you read the blog and know what we do, I'd love to see something that you think would be a good fit. Just cut and paste that shit into the little box below, tell me about yourself briefly and hit "submit." If its funny, I'll get back to you (i.e. I'm very fucking lazy, and need as much help as I can get).

So go here and get in touch with us.

Amazon Has Fresh Food Now, and You Will Buy It from Them

It’s well known (among people who know these things) that Park Slope is lousy with “publishing people” (it’s also lousy with lice – did you know that’s where the word lousy comes from? – because of all those 321 kids hugging each other. But I digress.) 

My husband and I are, in effect, “publishing people,” and so are some of our friends. And we are all royally pissed at Amazon, a company that seems gleefully bent on destroying traditional publishing, and who is in a well-publicized battle with French publisher Hachette for reasons not funny enough to outline here (go the link!). The gist is, Amazon is being a total dick.

Park Slope Craigslist Blotter

FREE: Pregnancy Test

I’m pretty sure, not positive (pregnancy test humor ya’ll,) that pregnancy tests come in at least 2 counts. This is offering one pregnancy test. Does that mean she’s pregnant or not pregnant? Wouldn’t you take the second test just to be sure? She also refers to last night as unforgettable. I think we’d all like to hear more about that. Anyway, if you don’t feel like spending the 7 bucks to get a test drop this person an e-mail. 

VOLUNTEER: 10th Annual Halloween Festival

It’s all pretty much right there in the title. This Park Slope charity is looking for volunteers to work their Halloween party. They are a little sassy demanding that if you come to be professional. LOL remember when professional meant paid? Said the internet blogger. Costumes are strongly encouraged. FIPS would further encourage you to take that costume to the next level. Some kind of serial killer get up. Real blood splattered on your clothes and a real chainshaw that you let rip every time a kid comes to your station for candy. Nah, not the pumpkin shaped Reece’s kid. Take a mini Milky Way.
