OMGZ DO THE NEW PPW BIKE LANES MAKE YOU SO ANGRY YOU WANT TO SCREAM? DO YOU THINK BIKE LANES ARE SOCIALISM IN ACTION? RAH RAH SIS BOOM BAH BOOOOO BIKE LANES? Then you're in luck.
FIPS reader Anne wrote in about a protest against those new PPW bike lanes that're making everyone extra cranky. It's happening next Thursday. (Anne astutely notes that we even have the best protests. We are #1, duh.) The scoop:
Thursday on PPW and Carroll Street, there’s going to be a protest against those fucking bike lanes. You know the ones that reduced the number of parking spaces, created a three lane road into two lanes causing more idling cars, fender benders, honking and traffic congestion, not to mention that the bicyclists don’t heed any traffic laws and zoom through lights then when you yell at them they tell you to fuck off.
This shit's happening Thursday, October 21st at 8:30 (call in dead to work and blame it on the bike lane) if you wanna go. Bring a sign and your favorite Abbie Hoffman quote. And don't shoot the fucking messenger, K? I am just your humble disciple of all things Park Slope, as well as Anne's candid admission: "I must confess, my dogs McLovin and Blue like the bike lanes. They present a nice smooth surface to poop on."
R U pencilin' it in?
