The Daily Show Goes Shopping At The Park Slope Food Coop

"Food shopping...it's kind of a pain in the ass. But did you know that there is a way to make it much, much worse?"

BWHAAAAHHHAAAAAA!

Epic thank yous to Jon Stewart and Samantha Bee for making me laugh my ass off for a solid five minutes and 19 seconds with their hilarious coverage of the Park Slope Food Coop Israel ban ridiculousness. 

The world is a better place now that this video is in it.

Hey look! A map of celebrities who live in Park Slope (Except they probably don't)!

We here at FIPS have made no secret about the fact that we love a good celebrity sighting in the 'hood. So when Gothamist linked to apartment rental search site Rentenna's star map of Manhattan and a little slice of Brooklyn, I jumped to see which famous Slopers made the cut.

And that's when I saw it: Anne Hathaway, Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo, and Steve Buscemi. 

What the what?

Listen, Rentenna. I don't mean to be all whatever about this, but you're a little off here. Sure, you were right about Steve Buscemi. He's Park Slope Royalty. But despite what we said back then, Anne Hathaway technically lives in Gowanus. And I'm almost positive Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo do not live in Park Slope. Believe me -- this is something I would know. I spent two hours yesterday stalking the area around The Good Wife filming because I love a good celebrity sighting (If I'm wrong about Nick and Vanessa, tell me immediately because I have a serious supply of 98 Degrees merchandise that needs signing).

Jay-Z & Beyoncé Rang In 2012 in Brooklyn

Next time any of your bitch-assed friends give you flack for having to come "ALL THE WAY TO BROOKLYN" to see you, tell them this: If Jigga-n-B can swing it, so can they. 

According to Food Republic, the power couple (who were very much NOT at the hospital having babyonce), sauntered on into Buttermilk Channel on New Year's Eve, and cozied up at a quiet table in back. 

Whether or not they made it to the fireworks in Prospect Park, we don't know, but according to the menu at Buttermilk Channel that night (foie gras, lobster duck meatloaf, etc), babyonce sure had one hell of a last fetus meal.

"I Don't Want to Live in the Park Slope of Park Slope...'

Leah Nash for Spin Magazine"I don't want to live in the Park Slope of Park Slope, really, though it's where you end up living if you have kids. I'm not saying it's bad there, but you just kind of feel like a mark."

So says Pavement front man Stephen Malkmus in a recent Spin Magazine interview.

Guess we won't be sending him one of our new "BREEDER" tshirts....

'Bored to Death' Coming For Your Parking Spots 

image via GothamistBored to Death will be stealing spots on the following blocks next week: 7th Avenue btw Garfield, and 2nd Street and First Street btw 7-8th Avenues.

I feel like I should probably watch Bored to Death one of these days. Sorry to say, I'll be out of town and unable to pay a personal visit to Zach Snuffalopolous, Jason Schwartzman and the inexplicably hot Jonathan Ames. Also, has anybody but me noticed that Jason Schwartzman is looking more and more like a hairy Stanley Tucci every day?
