He Already Got A ‘Jeter Swallows’ Shirt From the Sam Adams Brewery

Tour guide, holding up t-shirt: Brooklyn is a Vienna-style lager. I’m giving away a t-shirt to the first person who can name another Vienna-style lager that is brewed in the U.S.
Guy in Red Sox hat: Sam Adams!
Tour guide: Very good. And I would give this t-shirt to you, except that you’re a Boston fan. Better luck next time. [Continues tour.] –Brooklyn Brewery, 11th St, Williamsburg

Nobody Puts Wednesday One-Liner in the Corner!

Blonde white girl to another: And I was all like, "I'm not throwing the baby over the fence!" –Spring St Overheard by: Maria Emma Girl to mother: Oh, look at daddy with the baby in one hand and the bottle of bourbon in the other.

Treasured Art Like Flashdance and Dirty Dancing?

Hipster girl: You know it’s just so sad that I will never be able to see the world through anything but the eyes of a dancer. Because that’s what I am, a dancer. I mean, I will never be able to experience the world through the eyes of say an architect or a designer. Oh my God! Don’t you just pine for the 80s when dance was the treasured art form? –Williamsburg Overheard by: Rebecca

Wednesday One-Liners Suffer the Heartache of Gringo Hips

Four-year-old girl to nanny: No, princesses don't get tickled. They just dance and get married. –North Williamsburg Overheard by: anti-feminist White girl in hoodie: If I see any of the other girls there want to dance with you they'd better watch out, 'cause it's stab-a-slut Sunday. –J Train Short guy with greasy hair: Yo, this girl was like, "wanna dance?" and I was like "okay," so she started dancing mad good. She was grinding up against me with her ass. –3rd Ave & 71st, Brooklyn Gay guy on cell in long line during Circuit City closeout: Does it have speakers? Because I like to dance in my room, and I like to feel the music. It's really cold, so I like to dance in my room, you know? –Circuit City, Union Square Drunk girl to Guido she knocked heads with while dancing: I'm a drinker, not a dancer! –Hook & Ladder Pub, Murray Hill Overheard by: also a drinker Professor: I'm of the personal opinion that anything counts for art. Take, for example, Nelly's "Hot in Here." We have an admonition of certain weather conditions and an entreaty for certain members of a demographic to react within a certain way, and a compliant voice replies, "I am getting so hot, I'm gonna take my clothes off." This piece of art demonstrates how much easier life would be if getting a woman naked was that easy. And also, it makes me dance, and as we know, hips don't lie. –NYU Bobst Library Overheard by: queenofscots
