    1. agreed says:

      @agreed also, the “strikeout” trope would be funnier if you didn’t use it so much.

      1. no says:

        @no that particular one just isn’t funny

          @Anonymous the first one wasn’t, but the banco popular one was pretty funny

  • question says:

    @question why call it boringside heights? it’s not that bad. we could be in montana.

    1. ... says:

      @... because there’s something really comical about how incredibly dull and overpriced this neighborhood is considering how close it is to the center of the western universe.

      it’s like living in a lone skyscraper thrown up at the gates of an incredibly majestic national park.

        @Hoboken What? I can’t hear you from across the river! Wait one sec, I’m gonna hop on the PATH.

      2. question says:

        @question it’s also comical how hipsters always see irony in perfectly good things.

    @The ESC Rev UMMMM

    Pretty sure the shorthand name for Morton Williams is “M DUB” not “MoWi.”

    How does one even pronounce “MoWi?” Is the accent on the the first or second syllable?
