I Want To Mug Each And Every One Of These Idiots

Can I make six late nominations for most annoying person in New York? Or at the very least the author of the article, Emmy?

As AO said about something else,

[This] made me ashamed to be human, let alone a white New Yorker. If Theodor Adorno is in hell, he is being forced to watch those twittering Narcissuses for all eternity, Clockwork Orange speculums holding his eyelids open while he moans something about prepared corpses and not-quite-successful decease.

    Yeah, don't try to hide your embarrassing TV tastes. You don't know if those people twitter, or how shallow they are. You just know they spend an assload of money on stupid things. You don't even know that they're white, or falsely vital.

    I don't know, but I can deduce.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is this: it's not funny if it's not about the Sex and the City airheads.

    Ha, fair enough.

    Also, it's slightly odd that I find SATC so much less objectionable than you do.

    In the spirit of the Enlightenment values that Noam and I champion so ingenuously, some deductions (all from the example of Brian, who is not even the worst New Jerseyer I mean New Yorker profiled):

    Do I "know if those people twitter"?

    What else was he doing hopped up on the following menu:
    One glass of red wine, two coffees, cinnamon French toast with maple butter, Tour . . . $26.34


    "How shallow [is he]"?

    Groceries at Gristedes (olive oil and mayonnaise) . . . $15.08

    Migraine acupuncture treatment . . . $125

    Mixmag (British electronic-music magazine and CD), Casa Magazines . . . $9.75


    Do I "even know that they're white, or falsely vital"?

    Ticket to Iron Maiden concert, Continental Airlines Arena . . . $80

    Oh, also:

    Brian, a 26-year-old ... His parents pay his tuition as well as a $140-a-month gym membership at Equinox. The rent for his half of a West Village two-bedroom is $1,800 a month, most of it covered by his parents.

    Actually Brian seemed the whitest. But I would bet you just about any amount that at least one of the five is nonwhite, and probably two.

    Nonwhite people can suck, too. I'm an equal opportunity hater.

     
  • At 6:54 PM, Blogger Antid Oto said…

    Yes, yes. But nonwhite New Yorkers can't make me ashamed to be a white New Yorker, see? This is now truly ruining my joke through analysis.

    Ha.

    Shut up, honkie.

    (that's what some drag queen named Shequida said to me last week when I asked her to sing a song. It was such a non sequitur that I giggled nervously. So you see, a nonwhite New Yorker can make you ashamed to be a white New Yorker)
