Where, Oh Where, Are Park Slope's Buff Do-Gooders?

Hey, we want in on this action!  We've got the autistic kids but not the hotty models? Yes, per Gothamist, 150 of the city's finest are paddling around Manhattan to benefit eight different autism organizations. Haul your cupcake-bedazzled bellies and big butts over to the promenade NOW for a gander.

OPEN THREAD: Looking at This Fucking Tree


Well, it's one of your few remaining summer Fridays (those of us in publishing do not know what to do with ourselves when these end, as pathetic and indolent as that is), so clearly your minds are numbed enough to deal with waking up to an image of the tree outside of Jonathan Safran Foer's brownstone.  Or, as our friends at the Daily Intel are calling it, a "twee."

Yes, those are hands signing the American Sign Language alphabet and no, we don't have a fucking clue what to say, either.  But lucky you, this is an open thread.  So once you figure it out or have put enough Kahlua in your coffee that we won't know the difference, fire away in the comments.

Thank you for tuning in to this edition of Erica Fakes a Blog Vacation.  We're aiming for more nudity in the next installment.

Cupcakes-n-Muffin Tops

Ok, FUCK IT.

My Blog Vacay was pretty much an epic failure, so I may as well throw in my towel a day early. I JUST CAN'T QUIT YOU BTCHZ, BTCHZ!

Anyhoo, a new Crumbs Bakery opened in Brooklyn Heights. I don't really care cause I think Crumbs cupcakes suck a dizzle (they look gorgeous but taste like crap on a stick---Robicelli's all the way!). That's mildly interesting news in and of itself, but I was scrolling on through the comments on Brownstoner and I came across this little gem:

quote:

I swear this year every single woman in Park Slope is pregnant.

uhh.. im pretty sure that isnt the case. most of them just let themselves go when they snagged a nerdy husband.

someone should open up a shop called Muffin Top. that WOULD do quite well in park slope. they could sell not only muffins, but unflattering overpriced clothing.

*rob*

Oh SNAP! I don't even know what the fuck this *means* but I love it anyway.

If I've told you once, I've told you a million fucking times: all the best shit is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS in the comments, ppl. Live and learn.

*And if your upcoming week looks really bleak—we're a-talkin' to you, single folks—get your asses on to HowAboutWe and enter the code BKLUV for a free month of mixing and mingling, so you can feel like you fit in better in BREEDER LAND.  Plus, propose a sweet BK date and you could win some shit.

ON A FINAL NOTE, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS TO YOUR SEXY ASSES ON FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH.

SUBMIT YER OTHER SHIT IN THE COMMENTS, PREFERABLY NOT IN CAPS LOCK.  YO.
