Okay maybe not international news, or even national news, but since most Jews live in the tri-state area, we made it there; because vos iz neias wrote about it and Jews read vos iz neias (yes we only made vos iz neias that's how bad we are, its still news). You do know that in Brooklyn its almost impossible to park, we as Brooklynites will fight tooth and nail for our spots. Many a times we have to fend off bad neighbors who try to save spots, or take up two spaces with one car, either way its a nightmare here in Brooklyn. Well you can congratulate yourselves now that we finally made the news with this daily occurrence, a guy fought (with hands and feet, not tooth and nail like the rest of us) for a parking space and then was arrested for it. Some will say "hey it was bound to happen sooner or later", others will say "Why fight over a parking spot, I just double park". But do you really want to be known as the borough of bad parking? then we got to get our act together and be more considerate of others.

It may seem from the last few sentences that I am calling on everyone to make a difference in Brooklyn, but I know better than that, people will never be more considerate just because I am calling for it, especially in Brooklyn.

i think a few years ago am new york or metro new york (2 other fabulous ny newspapers) hailed midwood as the worst place for garbage pick-ups. i think its gotten a little better since then. the public garbage cans dont seem to overflow as much. maybe they are making them larger?

If you read the news item, you'll see he didn't fight with hands and feet but with a chair. This happened because he watched too much wrestling and the reason he watched wrestling is because he has a TV.
As you can clearly see, having a TV in your house will lead you to do aveiros and chillul hashem and to get arrested.

Nope same size, not as much trash. I have always seen bad garbage pickup around here.


I dont see anywhere in the article about TV. You must be watching too much sherlock holmes, and tried to figure this one out.

Actually sounds like it must have been a *slow* news day, Mike.

Ookamikun said...

No mention of TV, but the only place he could an idea of assaulting someone with a chair is wrestling.

Mikeinmidwood said...




Wrestling is fake, who would want to use fake moves on real people.

Ookamikun said...

He didn't know that, duh.

I'm going to have to call you on this one.

Do you drive?

Mikeinmidwood said...


everyone knows that, it takes an idiot not to.

Yes, but I rather not due to the parking problems.

Ookamikun said...

And he wasn't an idiot for doing what he did?

Mikeinmidwood said...

Of course not, the idiot was the one who got hit by the chair, wouldnt you move your car instead of getting hit by a chair?
