Drinking on the job

Tony Avella looks perplexed or perhaps a bit disgusted at a meeting. Why?
Maybe he's watching his colleague drink juice right out of the carton.*

Photos from Pardon Me for Asking





* Post is meant to be a joke. Since several readers can't figure this out, I will now clearly mark posts as such.

I'm sorry, but drinking out of a carton is low-class. At least drink with a straw!

Ant said...

Crappy has a point, Council meetings should be catered and drinks served in their respective stemware.


Slow news day is it?

I actually meant this post to be a joke, to have some fun with Melinda and Tony. It's Friday. Lighten up, folks.

Considering that 90% of what is posted here is excerpts from other news stories and the rest is photos of shitty-looking buildings, I'm not sure what you're referring to. And I don't "report news". This is an opinion blog, not a newspaper.

The way the media is in this city, it's hard to tell the difference between opinion and news sometimes.

Queens Crapper said...

P.S. The post about Joe Addabbo in a turban was a joke, too.

Wade Nichols said...

The proles on this board who don't realize that Crappy is engaging in satire are the same kind of morons who read Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal" and think he's advocating cannibalism.

Even Ridgewoodian has a sliver of a sense of humor!

I just introduced a bill in the city council to ban drinking out of carboard cartons citywide. Studies show that it just tastes bad and I don't want any of current or future constituents to have to suffer any bitter taste so orange growers in florida can make money.

I'm looking out for y'all since I know none of you can look out of yourselves.

Thanks...I think. Nice to know I'm remembered on a thread I hadn't even posted on. May Allah smile on you.

I'm not sure what the problem with drinking OJ out of a carton is. Has Emily Post forbidden it? I did it once while giving a lecture on Uncle Tom's Cabin and I got an A+ in the class

FYI: Jonathan Swift was a notorious cannibal.

Just curious.

It was part of a class. I had to talk about Uncle Tom's Cabin - which, historically important as it is is a pretty dreadful book - for half an hour or so. I think I compared and contrasted it with Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia. But I hardly remember since I was suffering from just about the worst head cold ever, which is why I was chugging the OJ.

Well well well, when the machine gets a dose of its own medicine, they howl.

Ever try to express an opinion in a newspaper covering a Queens topic and have it reported correctly, fair, or balanced if it goes against the machine?

Back in the USSR, baby!

I'm actually skipping prayers tonight to see the (1st place) Mets kick a little infidel Cardinal ass, and scoreboard watch while the (1st place) Nation smacks down the evil Empire, followed by a Merengue Night concert, and maybe drinks and burgers at Donovan's. When it comes to baseball and the eternal salvation of my soul it's baseball every time.

He is, he just won't admit it publicly. He was in the same convert class as Taliban John/Johnny Jihad, formerly known as John Phillip Walker Lindh. Ridgewoodian got lucky though, his minders in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan kept him in the U.S. rather then sending him to Afghanistan, so he avoided the fate of Taliban John. His minders have graciously loaned him to the "Queens Machine" on a temporary basis, in return for political favors. My sources have told me that Ridgewoodian's full name now is Omar Abdul-Jabbar Rahman Muhammad Ridgewoodian.

Not all - just the ones expressed here. Try to say something pro-development or pro-government and watch how quickly your post get deleted by Crappy. It's almost as if opposition does not exist. If you are like minded, simple minded, or mindless, you'll enjoy Crappy's fare. If you are looking for serious debate on the issues go elsewhere.

Yes, my opinions are one sided. That's what makes them mine. If you agree that's fine, if not, that's fine too.
Are your opinions so valuable that they can't withstand some criticism?

I've never seen that kind of censorship. The fact is that there are a lot of us that are disaffected when it comes to our local and state governments. And it's our right to speak up if we are.

How does attacking private citizens via anonymous comments add to the discourse about overdevelopment, political corruption and general crap in Queens that this blog is about? Why not write your own blog if this what you want to waste your life doing? I live in Flushing and really don't care to hear about your gripes with your civic group when I visit this site.

hahahahahahehehehehehehohohoho

Yea, like going to a community board meeting, or just about any official city meeting, or the editorial office of any city newspaper.

Fortunately, no one believes you.

The point here, bozos, is this blog, by the people, exposes the false veneer that the developers and politicans (and their hangers on) have created.

That the public has an unfettered access to EACH OTHER to comment drives them nuts.

They know, that unless there is someway to clutter the blog with bozos like Ridgewoodian (whose inanities just helps things along) their days of complete control are numbered.

What is Crappie? Why its a little mosquito buzzing into the ear of a sleeping giant -- the public (who has been on purposely lulled into this dozy state so the machine can have its way with her.)

Any if you ever wanted to know the power of the little guy, just fall asleep in a room with him.

This was a long time ago, in the early '90s and I was sick and feverish so I don't remember the ins and outs of everything I said. I think I spoke of them both as propaganda. I was probably trying to be a bit provocative since this was an era of excessive PC in English Departments. The prof. was more interested in political engagement and questions of gender than she was in aesthetic achievement ("'Moby-Dick': who cares?"). So I wanted to rub her nose in a woman-created politically engaged work that was arguably made in support of a despicable ideology - but that was, nevertheless, an incredible aesthetic achievement. Certainly a greater achievement than Uncle Tom's Cabin. To her credit, the prof. gave me a good grade.
