Lessons In Park Slope Douchery

click to enlargeWaaaaay back when, before any of you bitches had probably ever even heard of FIPS, we featured the work of Pete Johnson. In case you've never seen it, the dude rules your face...HARD.

Recently, everyone on the interwebz discovered his clever "Douche series" again, and lo and behold: he's got a Park Slope douche! This Park Slope douche has two kids, Phinneas & Calliope and and Phinneas wants to be an Acai Berry Afficianado OR an AIDS quilter when he grows up! They have a Jamaican nanny (LAME: everyone knows its alll about the Tibeten nannies now) and he drives a Prius.

This shit might be the best thing I've ever seen in my life.

(via Gothamist and everyone else who wrote in about this shit).

FIPS CARES: Don't Ask, Don't Tell Can Go Suck It

Look: I don't want to get into a whole convo on this issue cause if you think "don't ask, don't tell" is a good rule for our country to have, then I think you're an asshole. Bottom line is: Now that the house voted to repeal, we're close to coming correct on this ish and we all need to pitch in.

So if you're NOT an asshole, you should totally sign Prez O's petition, and get other non-asshole peeps you know to sign it too so that we can officially repeal this bullshit once and for all.

Let's make it happen bleeding heart liberal hippie haven Park Slope!

Who Gives A Shit: Latest Park Slope Discoveries?

Ok, so its getting hot, and its been raining a lot, and I've generally been in a pissy mood lately. As much as I love my tried and true faves in the nabe, I'm kinda getting sick of going to the same places, and eating the same things, and shopping in the same stores for the same crap. So give me some scoop:

Any new (or new to you) shit that you've discovered recently in the nabe? A new place? A new dish at your fave place? A new shop? A new sock vendor on 7th Ave? Spill it.

Here's mine: I had the fresh squeezed OJ at La Bagel Delight for the first time a couple of months ago, and I haven't been the same since. Here's the thing: I could give a rat's ass about oranges or OJ. I never, ever, ever order it while I'm out (unless I feel like a mimosa), I don't buy it at the supermarket and I hate when that shit shows up in my dessert. But ZOMGZ...the fresh squeezed OJ at La Bagel is a motherfucking revelation. It's like $5 for a not so gigantic cup of it, but I swear to gawd its totally worth it.

Ok, now you.

Go Busk Yourself

Listen up, Park Slope: it's bad enough that everyone thinks we're elitist douchebags with our expensive apartments, stroller mafia, celebrity residents, and "best neighborhood in new york" bragging rights. The least we could do to keep people off our backs is show a little bit of humility when it comes to our subway buskers. But nooooo...we don't have any disgusting, toothless, barefoot homeless guys strumming a guitar, or trios of doo-wop singers who haven't bathed in weeks...or even some crazy person dressed up in an Elmo costume playing the accordion. Nope, Park Slope gets this guy above.

That's Right. Some well-to-do motherfucker playing the glockenspiel.
