Scalino Got Seized

image via @superdee

Or served...or whatever the hell you call it.

But the tax man came a knockin' and apparently Scalino, that little Italian-ish joint on 7th Ave between 9th and 10th streets, didn't answer the door.

Let this be a lesson to us all: April 1st April 15 April 18th is just around the corner, ppl.

Park Slope Teens Getting Fat?

As a formerly pudgy little teen bastard who was often vexed by whether nine McNuggets and a large order of fries would be enough to satisfy a bulging tummy, I can't say I'm all that surprised by this recent study about teen eating habits. 

Apparently the study shows that little bastards between the ages of 13-17 haven't exactly been dissuaded from stuffing their fat faces since New York made including calorie counts on fast food menus mandatory in 2008. The survey appeared in the Journal of International Obesity (isn't obesity just an American thing?), and yep: fewer than 10% of the Justin Bieber fans surveyed give a rat's ass that eating two Burger King chicken sandwiches afterschool will probably make hearts explode in twenty-or-so years.

THE PROSPECT PARK BIKE LANE WILL KILL YOU! Or Whatever!

A couple of things that amaze me:

1) Salmon return to the place of their birth to die.

2) CBS 2 News reporter Marcia Kramer seems to get younger as the years go by.

3) And… I’m writing, once again, about this GODDAMNNED BIKE LANE on Prospect Park West.

Ok so here’s the shovel full of cow shit I have for you this week: apparently people are still taking video footage of the PPW bike lane (because it’s not psychotic enough for a bike lane to take up this much of your headspace), and after weeks of fishing, they F-I-N-A-L-L-Y caught a big mother fuckin’ fish: an ambulance using the controversial bike lane to avoid a traffic jam!

Annnnnd commence Neighbors for Better Bike Lanes switching their cry baby bullshit into high gear. GO.

JOANN FROM BENSONHURST IS MY HERO

I can't imagine you were watching the Fox 5 News at 10 last night. I wasn't either, but the teeves was on that channel when I flicked it on, and I happened to catch their new segment called City Rant! The premise is simple: Fox gives a local New Yorker a platform to rant, and they bitch and moan about a number of topics. For their inaugural broadcast, they introduced us to Joann from Bensonhurst.

Ladies and gentleman, meet my new hero:

The Secret to Happiness For Park Slope Parents: Smoking Weed?

ICYMI, Smartmom was "let go" (ahem) from her gig annoying the shit out of educating neighborhood parents from her perch at the Brooklyn Paper, and some chick named Stephanie Thompson took over her column. This woman, thankfully, does not speak of herself in the third person or give retarded nicknames to everyone she knows and then expect us to remember shit like: SNWIDRL refers to "stupid neighbor I don't really like"

However, she definitely has an edge. She already got the whole neighborhood up in a roar over her kinda confession that she's thinking of divorcing her husband (and the comments lit up with all sorts of bitches who accused her of having an affair). Annnnnnd now she's telling parents to smoke weed in order to embrace their own happiness!
