Best Quotation from the Strike

From the New York Post:

"The REAL horror story was biking over the bridge - like I do every day on the way to work - and passing the horde of sallow, whimpering MTA riders, many wheezing, as they propelled their bloated bodies towards their sugary breakfasts and desk jobs." - Josh Boyer, Brooklyn

Maybe it's just the spirit of the season, but the Misanthrope feels a sense of joy knowing that there are kindred souls like this out there.

Merry Christmas.

Which ones are your kindred - the biker or the bloated subway riders?

Dave Cavalier said...

Biker.

Chrispy said...

Don't you drive to work?

Dave Cavalier said...

I'd say 82 miles round-trip each day is a bit much to ask me to run or bike, no?

Chrispy said...

82 miles on a bike is nothing! I bet Josh Boyer, Brooklyn could do it no sweat.

I was just wondering why the biker would be your kindred spirit, rather than the subway riders. The disgust with humanity, perhaps?

I was one of those MTA riders (for one day), although I didn't wheeze or whimper one bit. But I did smoke a few butts.

Dave Cavalier said...

Well, yeah, the general disgust with humanity. Why do I have to keep pointing out that the blog is called Misanthrope?

Chrispy said...

I guess it's because your sunny personality is so at odds with the whole "Misanthrope" concept.

We just keep forgetting that, deep down, you hate us.

Dave Cavalier said...

That's definitely the first time I have ever been described as having a "sunny" personality.

I would have enjoyed the walk over the bridge for the duration of the strike. This fat wheezing guy would have laughed at each cyclist who fell victim to the broomsticks I jammed into their spokes.

"Let the sun shine in, and face it with a grin..."

Josh can fuck himself.... Hi Dave, hope you had a lovely holiday.

Chrispy said...

Yeah, Josh Boyer sounds a little uppity. "Oooooo, I ride my bike to work every day. Aren't I wonderful."

I hope he gets a flat.

Let's hunt him down for sport. I think we all know where and when to find him.
