Abrasion Might Be a Problem

Girl: Well, as a lesbian, it’s not something I understand…
Guy: You mean, she’s a size queen?
Girl: I didn’t say that…but I don’t get it.
Guy: I don’t get it either. I mean, I’ve slammed into someone’s cervix, and it didn’t look like that was too fun for her.

Overheard in the Bookstore

January 31st sees the release of Overheard in New York, the book. There are apparently people out there who have lives and don’t read websites; now they can see for themselves what this site we all love so much is all about. The book is perfect subway reading, and makes a great gift for Chicks, Dudes, Old ladies, Tourist moms and Crazy guys. And unlike
almost every other website turned into a book, we weren’t censored. You get the best of the best–and the worst of the worst!–as well as a bunch of quotes we saved especially for the print edition. We’re very excited and hope to make this an annual tradition. It’ll be
like Zagat’s, but with hobos. You can order it here. –Morgan & Michael (and 4 pages of contributors!)
